    specifivally, how do I boot Dell XPS8700 From Win10 USB Media


    I am not getting proper boot from the USB installation media for Win 10. With the USB in a front panel port, Turn on the machine, I am getting to the sign on screen, but there was no activity light flashing on the USB. Must the USB be inserted into a specific USB port on the Dell XPS8700?

    How do I make the machine read from the USB Win10 flash drive??
    same thing happened with the DVD media.

    Test using another USB port to see if it may work. :)

    OK! Using a rear-located USB port, I now got to the Advanced Option-Choose a Device; it now shows the 32GB USB available.
    I got to a Windows Setup window, and then clicked on Repair your Computer.

    Is it here that I need to open Administrator account mgr? What is the command; I've forgotten! Is it:
    net administrator /active:yes. ?

    OPTION FOUR below can help show you how to enable the built-in Administrator in a command prompt at boot. :)

    would this be required each time I boot the PC, or does it stick?; and later I must/ disable Administrator Account??

    The account will stay enabled until you disable it.

    When attempting to do step 1, Option One of
    Command Prompt at Boot - Open in Windows 10

    To open a command prompt, I begin with the computer off.
    at sign on screen I do a shift-Restart...
    Then I select Use a device, to get to my USB Win10 flash drive, which I select.

    I note activity for drive C.
    I am presented next with a Windows Setup window; wait a minute.

    This time I did a shift-F10, and an

    Administrator:X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
    window opened with

    Microsoft Windows [Version 10. 0.10240]

    on top most line and


    X:\Sources> prompt
    showing on screen within the boxed window.

    Is this an indication of successful " command line " prompt by use of my Win10 installation media? I would appreciate verification before continuing.


    regards,

    I continued with > net user administrator /active:yes


    "The command completed successfully" returned on screen. So, does this result indicate that Administrator Account is now enabled, and should I see Administrator as a selectable option when I next shift-Restar at the sign on screen?

    I also did>net user guest/active:yes
    and returned
    The command completed successfully.

    I wonder if I should do a
    > net user default/active:no

    and then do /active:yes
    to try to clean up the User Profile Service failed on sign on error? I'll wait for a reply on that, however.

    I'll try a shift-Restart now with Administrator and Guest enabled(?)
