Windows 10 Installation issues - Beepboop - 05-16-2022

Hello, I'm fairly new to Ventoy so I might just be doing something wrong... I'm attempting to install Windows 10 on a laptop of mine but I get some weird issues.

I have the flashdrive formatted using Ventoy with MBR partition style.

The laptop's bios being set to UEFI allows the installation to work without issues, But if I attempt to install using BIOS it will allow me to select it in Ventoy's menu, It will finish the "Loading files..." option but as soon as it's done it will provide a black box that appears over the Ventoy menu and will stay there forever, it will then flash the entire screen black ones and go back to the black box over the ventoy menu.

I read some forum posts and was recommended to enable Wimboot mode and this provides a different issue, It proceeds through the installation like normal but upon selecting a Drive to install windows on and pressing "Next" it tells me "We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the Setup log files." and won't let me select the drive.

I was also recommended to enable comparability mode, upon hitting "Install" it tells me "A media driver your computer needs is missing. This could be a DVD, USB, or Hard disk driver. If you have the CD, DVD, or USB flash drive with the driver on it, please insert it now." And hitting "Browse" I can't seem to find any drivers anywhere so this method also fails for me.

Any help would be nice Smile I'm wanting to create a ventoy USB that I can use on virtually any system to install Windows 10, be it UEFI or BIOS, laptop or desktop, Old or new, etc.

1. With normal mode, before you select the ISO file to boot, press F7 to switch to TEXT mode and then select the ISO file to boot.

2. With wimboot mode, try firstly delete all the existing partitions before you press "Next"

With text mode it proceeds to the "Loading files..." Then brings me to the GUI ventoy menu and freezes

I tried removing all partitions as well as creating new ones, and all provided the same error message

Boot using wimboot mode to Setup.
Then press SHIFT+F10 to get command console
Then use DISKPART and type these commands
DISKPART
LIST DISK
EXIT
do you see the USB drive and the hard disk you want to install to listed?

If so try these commands (booting in UEFI64 mode):
DISKPART
LIST DISK
SEL DISK N (where N is the number of the disk you want to install to)
CLEAN
CONVERT GPT
EXIT

Then try to install

If booting in MBR mode you need to use CONVERT MBR

I see my DISK 0 which is my 120GB SSD, and DISK 1 which is my 120GB flashdrive

I did as you said and converted it to GPT, It provided the same "We couldn't create a new partition or locate an existing one. For more information, see the setup log files." I also went through and converted it to MBR and tried again, and again to GPT and all provided the same issue even after refreshing after each change. I did go back to list disk and it shows the * populated under GPT, so its correctly converting it.

Try using DISKPART to format the SSD. It sounds like it has a problem.
