    I'm having some doubts about what I should do.I had already tried to create a dvd with the windows iso from the media creation tool and the result was the same. Stuck at the windows logo.
    I don't have any more dvds so I tried using the usb drive to put the iso Bootabe Rescue Disk and boot from it but the result was the same. I didn't really understand the steps that are described on the link (1-Create a FAT32 > 2GB - 32GB < Partition at the end of your drive
    2) Copy the contents (Files) from the Rescue Media ISO to FAT32 partition....) as now I don't have any operating system installed I don't know how to do this.

    Sorry, you're in to deep. Down load one of the 64 bit ISO's and burn to dvd. Then boot.

    If you want, make a bootable USB and copy the files.

    I downloaded Win14393PESE_x64 ISO v170116 and follwed that link to create a bootable usb exactly. When i boot this message appears:
    "an operating system wasn't found try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system". The only step with an option on that lisk is to format as ntfs or fat32, i've tried both and the result is the same.

    Please go back through the instructions on making USB bootable. I think you missed step for marking partition active.

    If you are booting UEFI the fs=ntfs should be fs=fat32.

    There is a box with this information in write up.

    As @Caledon Ken stated, it needs to be fs=fat32 not ntfs. In addition you do not copy the ISO file to the USB flash drive. You must extract the contents of the ISO file to the flash drive.

    I have not yet understood if it should UEFI or not, or how can I check that. So i made two pendrives one with ntfs and one with fat32. The problem was that I didn't extract the contents as Navy said.
    Now i got two situations.
    -> with the NTFS drive i got this error. If i press F8 or F10 the screen just flashes and doen't do anything else

    Okay. Sorry please update your specs but in meantime what kind of machine is this and or what is the Motherboard.

    Did you shut off Secure Boot in Bios and Fast Boot. (Recognize these might be new requests.)

    Do you have the original media from when you bought machine?

    What USB ports are you using, please use USB2 and one that is connected to Motherboard.

    The FAT32 drive with the partition marked as Active will boot in both legacy BIOS and UEFI computers. That's why we recommend doing it that way. It is universal.
