    How to test your USB with a Windows 10 iso download


    I have downloaded a Win 10 ISO to a USB. After a few attempts to install Windows using this USB, I am beginning to wonder if there is corruption in the files on the USB. I say this because on a brand new install, Reliability Monitor is throwing all sorts of errors and sfc/ scannow also reports corrupt files that cannot be fixed. This is on a brand new clean install, where all I have loaded is the chipset driver and graphics driver, no programs. Device Manager shows no issues.

    How can I test this USB to check if it is OK. Or should I rather just re-download the whole ISO again to be safe?

    If there was a checksum available at the download page, you could use that, but I don't remember if there is.

    That's what I would do.

    Thanks Mark,

    I think I will play it safe and re-download the ISO first.
