    I purchased two Dane-elec 16GB USB today, and have downloaded Rufus 2.3.709.
    Rufus will be testing it 4 times, and it is doing that now on the first USB.
    if it is OK, with you I can post a ascii file of the logs also. more later.. cliff M.

    I formated both the new USB and They worked just fine. the log file data from Rufus says they are ok.

    I tried this, I gave fat32 fotmat to my usb, but when I try to create the bootable drive it says the ISO downloaded doesn't support it.

    Either way I tried the suggested version, it runs, but once it is about to install it says i should format to fat32, I have partitions with info inside, am I suppose to format the whole drive?

    Thanks

    Hello myuption, and welcome to Ten Forums. :)

    I'm afraid that the USB will need to be completely formatted to create a bootable Windows 10 installation USB with it.

    Hello, thanks for answering, actually, it seems the whole hard drive need a new format. I tried burning a DVD and the results were the same, but now I got an error message saying the hard drive is protected by GPT.

    Searched around and it seems you can do some changes directly via command, but I don't know if it will only work on one partition or the whole drive. In the meantime I'm making a full backup of my other partitions... after that is done I might try that command line to change it or simply reformat the whole disk. Now it seems a bad idea to have a 1TB disk with multiple partitions and the system, next time I'll get a drive only for the system.

    After windows 10 update from win 8, should I maintain those virtual drives with recovery info -no longer used, at least the guys at Dell told me- and extras? Dell support was awful this time, they gave me no solution, they even said I should buy Win 10 for a new license, which seems to be useless if you activated before with the same hardware.

    Thank you!

    Hi! I'm totally confused! I though this thread was about creating a USB with W10 on it!
    I follower this tutorial by Brink. I used a 16GB PNY flash. I had no trouble at all. The USB works great. I also made a DVD with W10 on it and had no problems. Sorry if I'm out of line!!
    PS I don't know why you would want to keep recovery partitions that are no longer needed!! It has been my experience that not all makes of flash drives will work. I have found that PNY is my best choice for these kind of things!!
