    Well finally it worked.. showed USB as Boot #1 and off we went however..

    It booted to Win however when it asks for Reg or Don't have #, I choose that and then Win Prox64 but it comes back to the Reg# partb again. Tried a few times.

    I will try and hook up the drive with Win 10 x32 on it and it may find that Reg # when I install again.

    No, even after I reconnect the Win 10 x32 drive, it comes back to the Enter Reg# or Don't Have etc.

    All you need to do is reboot the computer without the USB flash drive inserted. You set the boot order in BIOS/UEFI to USB first, so it will boot into the USB flash drive first whenever it is inserted. The second stage of Windows 10 setup needs to boot from the SSD/HDD that the setup files were copied to during the first stage. To make that happen, remove the USB flash drive and restart the computer.

    No. It activates by retrieving the digital license for Windows 10 for that computer stored on Microsoft Activation Servers.
