    I'm looking to install Windows on my custom pc build but I tried to put it on a usb drive and it tells me to format every time. I then format and redownload and the same thing happens. I'm now willing to out windows on a spare disc, but I don't know how to clear current burnt files from it. Is there anyway to make a completely blank disc from this disc which already has files on it?

    If anybody could walk me though getting Windows on a usb that'd be a big help too.

    It has to be a DVD±RW rewritable disc to erase the files on it. Depending where you are, new writeable disks are available at drugstores, family -Dollar, Walmart in the USA.
