    Windows 10, new install on new Pc


    Hi, I have just installed Windows 10 pro from a bootable USB drive on a new pc build. It installed perfectly until it took ages to find the Samsung SSD it was installed on. Then, I got the Windows circle spinning for about 30 minutes. Restarting after loading all drivers has also been an issue. Again, the restart screen is there for minutes until it boots again and shows the Aorus bios screen. That screen is there for another few minutes before it boots into the Windows screen. Windows again produces the spinning circle for about 3 minutes...Sorry this is so repetitive but thatís what Iíve been enduring. I bought the USB stick from a licensed reseller on EBay. Is it a bad copy of Windows. Thanks for reading this far!

    do you have another computer available where you can download the Windows ISO from the Media Creation Tool and create the USB key?

    Is the Samsung SSD a 2.5" or NVME M.2 drive or SATA M.2 drive? Is it the only drive in the system? Have you checked for any related drivers.
    Your issue seems to be related to device initialisation, things to try would be, enter BIOS and turn off any unneeded POST checks, try turning fast startup off if it is a BIOS option, check manufacturers website to see if there is a BIOS update to fix issues.
    Make sure the boot order is correct, unplug any USB connected devices (other than keyboard and mouse), if using a wireless keyboard and/ or mouse try wired versions if you have them.
    If you can enter Windows, check device manager for any problem devices, update drivers if possible or disable unneeded problem devices.
    Most motherboard manufacturers will have their own drivers for devices, are you using those or Windows default ones?
    Some AMD compatible boards require a specific BIOS to function correctly.

    It would be very helpful if we could see exactly what Windows build and version your machine is running after installing with the eBay USB stick. Not you just telling us, a screenshot of the info.

    Hold the Windows key down and press R. Type or copy this: WINVER

    Press enter.

    a screen similar to this will be displayed.

    Thanks, it’s a Sata drive 860 Evo. I used the DVD for the Aorus motherboard for drivers and the ran Iobit driver booster 7. I updated all drivers. I’ll go into the bios and see if I can speed that up but I’m not sure why I get the Windows spinning circle. Last boot was 160 seconds before it resolved. I’ll get back to you, thanks.

    Thanks. Delete the pic in your post and use this one instead. The one you posted has your email in it. I've blotted it out for you.

    I have created my own USB installer by going to Microsoft. It’s on a new USB stick. I’ll install with that. As regards the slow boot time...I enabled fast boot and made the Samsung 860 Evo primary drive (it was second). I restarted and had to wait another 160 seconds!!! I checked the bios again to see if the changes had been saved and stored and they had?
