What happened to running the Windows AIO tool King Quiambao, it is important when troubleshooting that you follow the steps and post back with any outcome, not doing so and trying things not suggested can end in disaster  :(

 

Is the HDD detected in the BIOS, a Seagate HDD will begin with the letters ST and a Western Digital HDD will begin with WD, other brands vary and please note that any mention of a HDD in the BOOT sequence that is not labelled with such letters is only the boot order and not the BIOS detecting the presence of a HDD, see example attachment; 

 

Edit by phillpower2: Just looked at the Speccy report in your malware thread, a clean install would definitely be your best option as you have a whole load of stuff on the HDD that shouldn`t be there, Avira when you are using Windows Defender and ASUS touch pad drivers on a Sony Vaio etc, your HDD looks ok so the problem most likely Windows related.

 

If your computer will not boot from the USB ISO you may have UEFI BIOS and need to disable secure boot, canned steps for this below;

 

 

If your computer will not boot into Windows at all, power up or restart the computer continually tap or hold down the key that will allow you to access the BIOS on your computer and then do the following;
 
Select Security -> Secure Boot and then Disabled.
Select Advanced -> System Configuration and then Boot Mode.
Change UEFI Boot to CSM Boot.
Save the changes and Exit the BIOS, commonly F10.

hi :) so here it is. how i installed windows 10. please correct me if i miss anything :)

 

first I downloaded the media creation tool from https://www.microsof...load/windows10/to make a WINDOWS 10 ISO in my flashdrive

 

after i finished creating the ISO, I open my BIOS (on boot up) and changed the boot priority.

made "External Drive" to be the first priority. so that when my PC starts, it will load the Windows 10 installer inside my flashdrive

 

when the installer loads, i chose "Install Now"

 

and from there i just followed the steps.

 

it asked me to enter the license key. since I have activated windows 10 in my PC, i clicked "i dont have a license key"

 

after it finished the installation, my pc restarted, and from there, it asked me to enter some personalization stuff like PC name, who will use the computer, etc.

 

 

 

that is as far as what I can remember. did I miss anything?please post in your reply if i missed some important things

 

THANKS TO THIS FORUM FOR HELPING ME OUT! :D

Thank you for taking time out to post the download and install steps King Quiambao  :thumbsup:

 

All looks good to me, some BIOS are different but not greatly and I am sure that your steps will help someone else out in the future.

 

You are most welcome btw and once again thank you for the instructions  :)

Best steps that I would ever suggest are to back up on a regular basis preferably to another source such as an external HDD or the Cloud, keep plenty of free storage space available on your HDD/s 25% for the C: drive and 10 to 15% on data only HDDs, if not using Windows Defender and Firewall in Windows 10, use a good third party AV such as Avast or Avira, a Firewall such as Comodo and back it up with support from MBAM and SuperAntiSpyware.

Yes, use an AV software that you trust. Do research to find one that has good reviews. Take Windows defender for an example go to YouTube and see what people are saying about this AV search the web for things people are saying about Windows Defender and then choose one. Only have one real-time scanner on your system, if you have more than one they will cause problems. Download a software onto a thumb drive to scan your system occasionally to back up your first AV. Get a website security like Web of Trust . and research how to surf the web safely. User knowledge is the most effective tool to fight against Malware/Viruses Good luck to you King Quiambao.
