In this article we will show you how to download a Windows 10 desktop image using an older-style USB stick.
Before we do this, let’s take a look at the USB stick, the devices that it is supposed to be attached to, and the process that Windows 10 will need to follow in order to actually install it.
The USB stick that we are using here is a USB 3.0 stick, which is not the standard USB stick used in Windows 10.
This USB 3 stick has no hardware support and can’t be used with Windows 10, as it is a single device, with no logical partitions or other partitions.
Instead, Windows 10 uses a method called partitioning to separate the partitions on the stick into individual files.
Before we begin, we should be aware that Windows uses the USB standard, so it will not boot correctly on this device.
In order to boot, we will need an installation disc with an appropriate bootable ISO image, which we will be using for this tutorial.
You can find this image on Amazon for a few bucks.
We will install Windows on this USB stick in Windows XP SP3 mode, but you can also use Windows 10 SP1 if you have the SP1 ISO.
If you have a Windows 7 or 8 computer, the easiest way to install Windows is by going into your Control Panel and clicking “Start” then selecting “Programs and Features”.
Then go to the “Advanced” tab and click “System and Boot Options”.
Once that’s done, click “Choose boot option” and select the option that matches the operating system you’re running.
Then choose “Start up from USB” and you should see your computer booting.
Now, let us see how to actually get Windows to boot from the USB.
For this tutorial, we’re going to use Windows 7 and Windows 8, so let’s go to Control Panel again and select “Startup”.
Now we’ll want to create a new user account.
Open Control Panel by clicking Start, selecting All Programs, and then clicking “Control Panel”.
Click the “Administrative Tools” tab, and select Control Panel.
In the “User Account Settings” window, click the “Username” button.
Click “Create a new User” and choose a name for the account.
