Reinstall insider


I just installed an ssd in my desktop. So I’m trying to install the latest insider on it.

using a bootable flash drive. I boot to the flash drive, it is stick on the Windows logo.

I downloaded the image first using the media creation tool, that was giving me the same thing.

so then I downloaded the latest iso by itself and used refus o make a usb bootable.

still stuck on the off square windows logo.

what am I doing wrong?

I don’t remember the first time I install it last year taking this long to load.

    If the system uses UEFI, make sure your USB stick uses GPT and not MBR, or set your firmware to boot in legacy/compatibility mode. That's one point where issues can occur.

      nevermind, I just had to wait, and after about 15 minutes. It went past that screen. And another 15 minutes to finish setting up.

      That's utterly bizarre! At least it fixed itself!
