I try to install Windows 10 on a rather old system.
- Mainboard is a Intel Atom Desktop board (D525MW) with a BIOS rev. from 2013.
- CPU is Intel Atom D525. Intel spec sheet If I read that correctly it's a 64bit architecture.
- USB Stick containing the image is a PNY 64 GiB (USB 3.0) stick
- Win 10 image is: Win10_1809Oct_German_x64.iso directly downloaded from MS (latest 64bit ISO in German)
- I wrote the stick by doing
dd bs=4M if=Win10_1809Oct_German_x64.iso of=/dev/sdc
- I also tried partitioning the USB stick and writing to the first primary partition
- I also tried using a 32bit Image
- bios option „boot from USB“ was enabled
The outcome is, my BIOS won't boot from the USB stick claiming „No boot device has been detected, please press any key to reboot!" The operation light of the stick flickers at power on, so the USB-port might be working, but it shows no activity, when the time comes where I assume the boot device must be selected.
(I have built in the any key, very cumbersome, took me a week or more, so I can reboot at least)
What could be the hindrace to boot from the USB stick? Do I have to assume, that the stick is too big/new to boot from? Is my BIOS/Board broken? Are there additional settings in BIOS setup which I have to take care of?
