Acer Aspire M1641 Vista Premium SP2 32 bit


I have been trying to put Windows10_TechnicalPreview_x32_EN-US_9926.iso on a thumb drive, using the latest version of Rufus. I got an error message while using two perfectly good drives. After getting the error message when trying with a third drive, I took a look at the error log.

Trying to interpret the findings of the log is beyond my abilities. Could someone read the log and tell me just what went wrong and how to fix that wrong, if it can be fixed.



Code:
Rufus version: 1.4.12.535
Syslinux versions: 4.07/2013-07-25, 5.10/2013-06-04

That looks pretty much the way I was doing it. The instructions I was using are here

Disconnect all USB Mass Storage drives from the computer (eg) SD cards, WD external etc. The only USB drive in the computer should be the USB Flash Drive. Go to Start/Search and type diskmgmt.msc, Right click the diskmgmt results and Run As Administrator. Here, make sure the Flash Drive is partitioned, formatted, and has a Drive letter. Rufus will reformat it, but it helps if it is setup to go.
In Rufus, it should select your Flash Drive in the top under Device. Near the bottom under Create a bootable disk using, take the drop down arrow and choose ISO Image, browse to the ISO file on your computer. Then start it, it should finish If it fails, the ISO image or the Flash drive are damaged. You can also use the Microsoft Tool to burn your ISO to a flash Drive.

Sorry for the delay. I tried your suggestions. First, I used one of the A-data drives and got the same error as before, even though the drive works fine for any other purpose.

Next, I tried 'burning' the ISO to the PNY drive. All went well and rather quickly. Thank you for your suggestions.

I will not be able to use the computer I had intended to use for this Preview. Unless I am told its a bad idea, I will be installing the preview on a computer that shipped with XP Pro. Do you think there will be serious hardware/software compatibility issues? Not having Touch Screen is not a concern.

The most common "issues" are typically hardware support (ie: drivers). The older the hardware, the more likely there will not be proper drivers.

Be aware that Windows 10 is still in Beta and has some bugs to work out, this will not be the final edition. If you want to give Windows 10 a test drive, you can install it on a Virtual Drive on your computer. Like the free VirtualBox. You would install VirtualBox on your Windows 7 or 8 computer and then install Windows 10 inside of of VirtualBox This will allow you to get familiar with Windows 10 without it being the main OS for the computer.

Sounds good except I don't have a computer with 7 or 8 on it. All have XP, Vista, Mint or Ubuntu. My hopes are Win10 will be the OS to get me past Vista.

I clicked the 'Solved' button too soon. Major problems. Before I get into all of them (or start a new thread, if you think best), take a look at the attachment and tell me if it should look as it does. This is the thumb drive I thought I burned the Win10 preview on.

The Disk 0 which includes your C: drive looks good. You have a hidden 10GB partition in the front of the HDD that is your Recovery partition to reinstall Windows, if there is disaster.
The only thing that looks amiss is you have an 8GB USB Flash drive that is not Formatted or have a drive letter. If you don't have any files you want to recover off of this USB drive, you can right click the Partition and choose Delete Volume. In the Unallocated Space, right click and choose to Create a New Simple Volume, then Format it and assign a drive letter.

I should have been more specific. The 8G drive is the one I used to put Win10 Preview ISO on with Rufus. Rufus indicated the 'burn' was successful. Apparently, I did something wrong. I don't know what to change about the procedure when I try, again.

The Flash Drive is RAW format, it may be faulty. Follow the suggestions in the Quote above. Once the Flash Drive is formatted and has a drive letter;
Start Rufus. At the top under Device, your USB Flash Drive should be recognized and listed with it's Drive Letter. Under Format Options at the bottom next to Create A Bootable Disk using... Take the drop down arrow and choose ISO Image. Now use the Browse button to the right of that to browse to your Windows 10 ISO image. then click Start.
When it's done, it will show the USB Drive in Windows (File) Explorer or My Computer with a Drive letter and a name. Now you can boot off of it to install Windows 10

I cannot chose the Delete Volume option. It is greyed out. I am running as admin.

Maybe it would help if I told you at least one of my other problems. It may be tied into the greyed out option.

I have three thumb drives. Prior to trying to burn the Win10 to each with Rufus, they all were in perfect working order. All three burns were failures. Now the computer will not recognize any of them, although the PNY does show up in Device Manager and is said to be working. And as you can see, it shows up in Disk Management.

In Device Manager, I now have a yellow flag by Microsoft WPD FileSystem Volume Driver . When I check, the flag is due to a code 10 error. I don't know how to fix this. I did run SFC /SCANNOW and there were errors that could not be fixed. I saved a log if you want to see it.

Surely, I did something wrong for the thumb drive to show up as RAW.

Go to Start/Search and type diskmgmt.msc, right click the diskmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the elevated Disk Management window you will see your USB Flash drive. right click it and choose Change Drive letter or Paths. change the drive letter to something that is not being used.
Now go back to Device Manager, the WPD FileSystem volume drivers yellow mark should be gone.
Follow the steps to Delete Volume in Disk Management and Create a New Simple Volume, Format etc.

I went to diskmgmt.msc, right click the diskmgmt results and Run As Administrator. I saw the flash drive. I choose Change Drive letter or Paths. I changed the Drive Letter to something that is not being used. I went back to Device Manager. The yellow flag is still there. However, the drive does now show on the computer and when I click on it, I am given the option to format.

Apparently, I'll have to go through the same procedure for the other two thumb drives, as well. They show up in diskmgmt, but not in computer.

Now for the pits. I read about 7 articles on how to install Win10 preview from the ISO file to Virtual Box. Six failures. All six left out one important step. The seventh article had it. All went well on the seventh try til I ran into this: VT-x/ADM-v hardware acceleration is not available on your system, etc.

So, unless I have this hardware acceleration on my XPS 410 I'm out of luck. I hate to drag it out and set it up just to be disappointed. Do you know off hand if A Dell XPS 410 (running Vista sp2) has this hardware acceleration?

Update. After unplugging the thumb drive and plugging in another, the WPD FileSystem volume drivers yellow mark went away. Now, a flag is beside the newly plugged in drive. I'll go through the same procedure to correct.

It's been 3-4 years since I had my XPS 410 in use. Seems I remember it having hardware acceleration. Hope I'm right.

I hope this bit of information may be of help to someone else. The seventh article I read included this instruction (which was missing from the others): When you see the first screen in the Create Virtual Machine wizard, supply a name for the system, select Microsoft Windows as the type, and oddly enough, choose Windows 8.1 (64-bit) as the version.

I did not have the option of choosing 64 bit, so I chose Windows 8.1 (32-bit). It was only after choosing this option (rather than Vista, which is what I was choosing, because that's what I was running), that I could select the IDE controller for the CD/DVD drive.)

Help!

Since I couldn't install Win10 on the Acer due to Hardware Acceleration problems, I decided to uninstall Virtualbox with System Restore. Now, I have major problems. Nothing works. I have to start the computer by selecting Start Windows Normally. When it gets to the Welcome screen, all goes black. In Safe Mode, I get to my desktop, but everything is frozen. I can move my cursor, but it won't open anything. At one point, a window popped up with this message: Log on process has failed to create the security options dialogue.

I hate to drag out more desktops. Right now, I am using a laptop without an HD. I'm running Mint live. Communications will be slow for a while.
