    Hello @Denis,

    I have not tested extracting Windows 10 Pro [index 6] to see if it becomes index 1 in the extraction or retains its index 6 number within the extraction. Wim extractions are a new task for me so I did not assume anything during my procedure.
    I have actually done this many times previously with Windows 10 Pro [index 6] and it does indeed become Index:1.

    I hope this helps!

    Hi there

    @Try3

    Latest UEFI systems will also boot from NTFS. Not all will so it's sort of "Try it and see".

    Another way to get round the problem is to create a Virtual Machine with the ISO image and then simply do a V2P (Virtual to Physical) conversion. After ist boot from the physical machine Windows will via update get any drivers etc it needs.

    Keep disconnected from the internet while creating the initial VM - then once you've created the physical machine you can then get normal activation.

    An easy way of doing a V2P conversion is to dump the VM Windows image via Macrium Free to a USB device, restore via the stand alone bootable utility, do the "Fix Windows boot problems" from the utility and then boot the machine.

    Should work fine -- does on VMWare workstation and QEMU/KVM Virtual machines -- haven't tried it on VBOX though.

    You can using partition managers etc re-adjust the Windows "C" drive if required.

    Cheers

    Brink,

    Perhaps you could work this into the tutorial to assist people who can only boot from Fat32.

    Now that I've found a computer that will not boot from exFat, I've had to look into the Dell procedure that was linked to earlier.
    Windows 10 ISO contains WIM file that is big for FAT32 file system - Dell

    Brink,

    Sorry to boast but I think a link to my post #555 would also be useful there. I followed the subject through to completion [i.e. making the InstallUSB] but the Dell article does not.

    Is your computer UEFI? If so, it likely will not boot from an NTFS partition. The standard Windows 10 USB flash drive created with the Media Creation Tool is MBR with a FAT32 partition marked as active, which will boot in any computer (UEFI or legacy BIOS) that can boot from a USB flash drive.

    No not at all its bios only i checked it twice
    I tried checking Iso too it's OK. Recently when I updated windows to 2004 it got corrupted then I thought of making a bootable USB and install new one but it's not working
