If I am on line at 6:30am my time that is 2:30pm your time
I can stay for 2:00 hours before I have a job to do.

Don't forget to take into account how my luck runs! (Grin) Don't stress yourself, it's not that important.

Is there any thing to indicate it is working?

Choice let it go and see what happens or pull plug.
Either way if it does not work
Try the esc and see if usb is an option.
If not go back into the bios and double check that legacy mode is now enabled and secure boot is off

Details from post #185 if you need them
You don't have to do this right now

Installing windows now!! YEA!!
Hit a snag.
"Where do you want to install Windows"

Name Total Size Free Space Type
Drive 0 Partition 1: WINRE 650.0 MB 380.0MB Recovery
" " " 2 260.0 133.0 System
3 128. MB 128. MB MSR (Reserved)

I clicked on #4, got:
"The partitions on the disk selected for installation are not in the recommended order."
"For additional information about installing to GPT disk go to Microsoft website and search for GPT"

Do you want to proceed with installation?

Went back and watched video on "How to install windows 10 from USB flash drive"
It didn't help. I'm tempted to click "OK" and proceed with the install. but remembering a wise man's rule #2 "If In Doubt Do Nothing." I'll do nothing instead, and wait for him.
