are you trying to make a bootable device? if so, use a software called Rufus. You can find a tutorial on their webpage.. very simple process

You should investigate why your laptop only reads FAT32.

I presume the problem may have been for it to not be bootable. Rufus, as suggested by #1, should make the process pretty straight forward and set up the USB correctly.

it possible that its uefi only and that i have to use fat32 format? rufus doesnt allow me to choose fat32 for this .iso/usb anyway

In Rufus you should only have to point where the USB drive, if not already auto-detected, and the source for the ISO. Regarding the FAT32 format, as you have already stated yourself, there are files in the ISO, specifically one that is 5 GB IIRC, that exceeds the maximum file size FAT32 admits. Theforefore even if you wanted to, you can not do it that way AFAIK. You may want to check in the BIOS if 'Secure Boot' is enabled and set it to 'disabled'.

As stated it is pretty straight forward to use. Although in my case the dual type did not work and I had to use the UEFI type. Why did you use an older ISO though? You should have used the latest (20H2) which should also save you time time downloading the latest updates.

my current pc sees it as a bootable device so i hope it works thanks for the help and sorry for all the things i did that made you ban me <3

if you simply copy the files into the drive, it won't make it bootable. Sometimes even after you create the bootable drive properly you might also have settings on your bios locking other sources for booting, so you kinda need to know which format will work (UEFI, legacy, etc). If in trouble you can try and find tutorials on youtube regarding your specific laptop model and the steps to change the bios setting that might be blocking this

Usually Rufus gets it right the first time (remember that you're running the app localy and it 'knows' which format to use on that machine for the OS version of the image). But IF it's the wrong format, Rufus will display an error message when you try to boot, listing the actions you need to take to fix it. Considering that you might be new to this, i suggest you start from the youtube tutorial, because the steps you might need to take on BIOS can be very confusing Also, remember that the laptop will try to boot from the first option it finds, so even if you did set up the booting device propperly but didn't changed booting priority in bios, the laptop might find the old OS on disk first and not even try to boot from pendrive.

ibb.co/X4RXdzp this is what a tutorial said if i wanna make it both uefi and bios bootable (i am not sure what that means but i did it anyway) i did install OS many times but from an already bootable device. This is the first time i am trying to make one soooooo idk what exactly do i need to do

Creating for both means that It SHOULD work on both types, but i've never seen it work like that.. if you get it wrong, you will most likely get an error message like this filestore.community.support.microsoft.co.. Please note that ONE of the three suggestions works, usually, the first one. As to HOW change this setting, you will need to refer to a youtube tutorial. You can try to enter BIOS by yourself and look for Secure boot or any config related, but messing with BIOS is very risky if you don't know what you're doing. Now, if you're not even reaching this message, this might mean that your BIOS is not even trying to boot from pendrive and the issue should most likely be the booting priority (order)

yeah your laptop should definitely be reading NTFS but uh your flash drive obviously needs to have enough space to actually hold the windows10 installation

either way if you're on windows already, rufus should make it pretty easy
2021-01-14 17:41
After installation make sure you delete the system32 folder, windows often comes with this notorious virus.
