    I used dban to wipe the hdd as i bought the tower used. it had windows 10 32bit on it previously. I added a gpu and some ram and it worked fine and recognized the ram and gpu. The processor supports 64 bit so Im attempting to put windows 10 on it. The bios recognizes the usb when i put it in and I changed the boot order but i just get three dots and nothing. The only thing that i was able to get it to load up from usb is the DBAN.

    Hello shadow64, and welcome to TSG.

    You don't specifically state it in your post, but am I safe to assume that you are attempting to install Windows 10 from a USB flash drive?

    If so, exactly how did you put the Windows 10 installation files on the flash drive? It sounds like the flash drive was not configured properly to be bootable.

    Thanks for your reply, fortunately, I have gotten it figured out. I booted using the dvd drive and was able to get Windows 10 finally.
