    Thank you. You are very welcome. Likes are always appreciated. Did you get it working on both computers. What remote desktop software are you using? I don’t know why it would not work on Win 8.1. I use Teamviewer for all my remote desktop use and its a great program. Its free for all personal use. Check it out below if interested. Let us know if you need anything else.

    Also please mark the thread Solved if you don’t need anything else.

    hey thanks for your help

    i thought 7 was extended support till January 14, 2020

    i dont like team viewer as even under one account i have noticed a lot of adverts and disconnects due to licensing

    but look i will take your advice, there are lots of products
    teamviewer logmein gotomypc etc might be more secure than rdp?

    so yes please help me install 8 again...thanks again for the help

    You are right it is supported until then I was mistaken. Yes, there are lots of rdp options if you don’t like Teamviewer. I have never experienced those issues and have always used the free version with many computers over the years.

    Lets start by doing the following and paste the output.

    Type diskpart
    list disk

    Please pay attention and check the following in the link below. Let me know if you still have issues

    https://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/15458-uefi-bootable-usb-flash-drive-create-windows.html

    • Set the boot mode to use UEFI and not CSM (Compatibility Support Module) in your UEFI firmware settings.
    • Temporarily disable Secure Boot in your UEFI firmware settings. Some motherboards will not boot from a USB unless you do this first. When the Windows installation is finished, you can enable secure boot if you like.
    • If you have fast boot or ultra-fast boot enabled in your UEFI firmware (if supported), then you may need to temporarily disable it until Windows has finished installing to be able to boot from a USB flash drive at boot.
