    Well, that is plenty of memory to create the ram disk to boot this PE Media.

    Yeah, it works fine on all other devices - it's just the three 7050s that give me this error.

    They're covered with 'Pro' support so I've asked Dell for some clarification. I'll let you know when I've had a response.

    Thanks SuperFly for the read...

    So based upon what I understand the issue to be.

    It appears that the current windows os wrote memory blocks into the Host BCD file..

    So either something over wrote the BCD on your USB stixk

    Or you are booting PE from your Host BCD

    Mount PE ISO and copy the contents to a Fat32 formatted USB stick
    Boot directly from USB by using F12 Boot Menu Options

    Hy Kyhi.

    I can't claim to fully understand the link in Superfly's post, but since the key boots fine on other PCs (including two Dell XPS 13 laptops) can we assume the BCD hasn't been overwritten?

    I used Rufus to make the key so I'll try remaking it using the 'format and copy contents of mounted ISO' instructions.

    Booting was done via F12 options anyway and there's no OS on the PC so looks like the message is from the key. What do you think?

    Do you know how to read or access the BCD ??
    there are two on the usb
    /Boot\BCD
    /efi\microsoft\boot\bcd

    If you could .zip and then attach to post, to share..

    Or just overwrite USB with ISO contents, to be sure..

    As first ever seem that issue..

    Kyhi.

    I just confirmed I get the same error on a second Dell 7050 with this key (Windows installation media boot fine, by the way).

    Here's the contects of the BCDs:

    There is one entry in the Windows bootloader.
    Path: E:\Boot\BCD

    Default: Windows Setup
    Timeout: 30 seconds
    EasyBCD Boot Device: E:\

    Entry #1
    Name: Windows Setup
    BCD ID: {default}
    Device: [boot]\sources\boot.wim
    Bootloader Path: \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe

    There is one entry in the Windows bootloader.
    Path: E:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD

    Default: Windows Setup
    Timeout: 30 seconds
    EasyBCD Boot Device: E:\

    Entry #1
    Name: Windows Setup
    BCD ID: {default}
    Device: [boot]\sources\boot.wim
    Bootloader Path: \windows\system32\boot\winload.efi

    However, I can see it's formatted NTFS so I'll try reformatting FAT32 and copying files as previously advised.

    Same result with new FAT32 key made as advised.

    Were the BCD contents as pasted from EasyBCD okay? I can zip and send if there's anything else you'd be able to see.
