How can I install Windows Developer Preview from a flash drive? RRS feed


  • Hey Shakout,


    Take a look at the link below to make sure that you have formatted the bootable USB so that your computer can boot the installation from it:
    How to create a bootable USB flash disk for the Windows Developer Preview Edition?


    Also you will need to make sure that USB devices are set to a higher boot priority in your BIOS settings so that USB devices are checked before your hard drive/drives are checked for boot information. Alternatively you may be able to enter a boot menu during the initial screen you see during startup (typically by pressing F12 on your keyboard). This may allow you to choose to boot specifically from the USB drive without having to change your device boot order.

    Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) or Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS/UEFI settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.


    Hope that helps.
