    Might be the thumb drive, although the error message is talking about the source? I clicked retry a few times with no success then clicked cancel. The thumb drive was at 99% but shows as blank. Rebooted and now I get check for errors messages. I'm doing a clean and reformat with diskpart, and will try again with the ISO I have. If it fails again I'll check the hash.

    I had no issues to install it last night (see this post), although I do not use USB or DVD to install, I simply apply Windows image with DISM to new partition and when done add it to boot menu.

    First time I've seen the error I posted above. Will have a second go in a bit. I did a normal format instead of fast, its at 80%. Downloading the ISO again anyway, its at 40% and 6 min remaining.

    Meh, same error only at 94% and install.wim. I have no idea what's going on? If I click skip it just errors on another file. That's enough for me for today. Not feeling well at all and in no mode for this headache at the moment. Next try will be with a different thumb drive.

    Looks like it was the thumb drive, used a different one (same manufacturer, same size) and no error. :)

    EDIT: FYI, thumb drive was formatted in fat32. I've had issues with the 10 multi edition ISO where the wim file was to big to fit on a fat32 formatted drive. File size was to big.

    FAT32 has a 2GB MAX file size limit. The newer version has a 4GB limit

    I format all my bootable thumbdrives in NTFS, just in case.

    ExFAT is also a good alternative. Has virtually unlimited file size limit.

    FAT32 has been 4GB max for Donkey's years. I cannot remember it ever being 2GB.

    I customize install images all the time, my install.wim files are very seldom under 4 GB which rules out using fat32.

    I use this UEFI:NTFS tool to make a small fat32 partition for bootloader on USB drive, rest of the drive being then NTFS which allows larger WIM files to be used: GitHub - pbatard/uefi-ntfs: UEFI:NTFS - Boot NTFS partitions from UEFI

    BTW, Rufus can make it automatically.

    That's great except if your trying to do a UEFI install. A lot of PC's won't let you install in UEFI mode from an NTFS formatted thumb drive. Your only option is Legacy. My wife's Acer laptop won't boot from an NTFS thumb drive period. No way no how. This thumb drive was already all setup as fat32 and tagged as active. I just replaced the Windows 10 install files already on it with the new ones from the new ISO.
