That is just a preview of the page that you linked to. This is controlled by forum software and unfortunately you cannot disable it in account settings. Simply ignore it. What's important is that you posted the right link.trying to reinstall windows, see this thread now..............
\I created a bootable USB flash drive with the windows media creation tool and burned it to a USB flash drive. I tried setting the bios to boot from the drive. There is even an option in my bios to do a boot override and select directly from the bios what device I want to boot up with right there...www.techsupportforum.com
Is there a way for me just to post the link itsel, instead of it showing the post? Happened with a link I tried to post to another forum, I just want to post the link itself, not part of what is on the page it links to.
which link on the page are you talking about in particular, the one withj the tool is the one I've been using that doesn't work on a flash drive, it says I need a dual layer dvd to burn it to.Most people upgrade to a new computer after 5 years or so. Holding on to old stuff is fine, and it's probably not an issue, but it may not take newer software as easily as a newer computer would, making it...... well, problematic.
The Windows 10 ISO image from this link Download Windows 10 fits on a 4.75GB DVD disc.
Sounds kind of like a pain to need a buy a flash drive for one use only, or at least just to do one thing, one time. I am going to be trying a dual layer dvd, however, to boot it from. I think I should re-connect the hard drive.My Bad, I haven't burned a Windows DVD in several years, it looks like the install size has increased to 4.89GB, so it won't fit on a 4.75 GB Disc, that's why we suggest using brand new, never used USB Flash drives of 8GB or larger.
Well, I could pick up an 8GB flash drive tommorrow along with the DVD's when I get them. Perhaps I should.A flash drive can be reused and repurposed for several things. A DVD-R Dual-Layer is a one time burn and cannot be repurposed., that is if it doesn't fail the burn or failed to be read by the DVD drive. It's always a good idea to have a Windows installer to troubleshoot your Windows OS.
