Windows 10 install fails at start up

  robertynwa 04:44 15 Dec 2015

When I attempted to start up a new laptop to install genuine Windows 10, (downloaded from Microsoft website), via USB I received the error message,

"Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We'll restart for you".

Error message also said ... "Attempted write to read only memory (WimFsf.sys)".

The laptop attempted to start several times but the same message was seen.

The new laptop is an ASUS X554LJ-XX025D, free dos.

Please help as this is my sons Christmas present.

Many thanks

Possibly a corrupt iso or USB.

Make again with W10 Media Creation Tool


What Windows was originally installed on the laptop?

There was no windows on the laptop, it was new and came with something called "FreeDos".

I will make a fresh USB using the Media Creation tool and see if that works.

Many thanks
