    Option 2 here, diskpart, is my preferred method for creating my bootable install thumb drive. UEFI Bootable USB Flash Drive - Create in Windows Has never let me down and works for both legacy and UEFI. Just mount the Windows 10 ISO instead of the Windows 8 one.

    But the Iso could be bad ??

    Try the link I posted, Microsoft is piling all the versions in 1 Iso, maybe something`s up with that.

    Ya that hasn`t been mentioned, are you installing UEFI ? Is the M.2 setup as GPT ?

    I have no knowledge yet of installing on a M.2 drive. I assume it looks just like any other ssd in the Bios and to Windows ?

    Did you delete the entire drive down to unallocated space before reinstalling ?

    Since you have a new 960, I think you could rule out the drive being bad and concentrate on the software.

    Alright, going to try to wipe it and reinstall. I'll use a different ISO as well without all the updates.
    @AddRAM, yes, M.2 works like any other SSD now. Windows 10 has built in driver support for M.2 (unlike past versions). I did delete the entire drive down to unallocated space prior to reinstalling.

    Home and Pro are one ISO on MSDN and via the MCT. It's been like that since the Consumer release of Windows 10. Home SL and Education are separate ISO's.

    What I do is select Custom install, which gives you access to the disk tools. Then I just delete all the partitions and install into the unallocated space. Windows 10 will create all the partitions it needs automatically.

    I have the original RTM 10240 and build/version 10586, never had an issue with either, never had to use the latest iso yet, which is 4.42 GB.

    The one I downloaded from here the other day is only 4.07 GB and should have Home and Pro 64 Bit on it.

    Another member used it and reported no problems with the install.

    For the most part I just use my MSDN ISO's. I have access so why not. Plus I'm currently running the Education version.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but when possible, I'm a firm believer in getting the ISO right from the horses mouth. In this case Microsoft via the MCT. You never know what has ben done to an ISO on a third party site? I'm not saying your link is good bad or ugly, just that I personally wouldn't use it or recommend it to anybody else. just to cover my @ss if you know what I mean.

    I hear ya, but he`s having issues with that Iso. If he wasn`t having issues with it then we wouldn`t even be here

    We didn`t give him this one yet.

    I'm leaning towards it being a hardware issue. It could be a corrupt ISO, downloading it again, even from the same source could solve that though. It could be his internet connection that mangled it. Come to think of it, it might even be prudent to download it on another PC. And create the install media on that PC. Versus doing it all on the problem PC.
