Windows 10 Installer was created by sergiopt04
So, I recently bought a Pentium 4 system, It has 2GB of RAM, a GTX 275, but it didn't come with a hard drive, so I got one and I wanted to install Windows 10 on it, it's a 250GB Western Digital Blue...
The problem is when I try to put in the thumb drive, it loads and shows the Windows 10 logo and turns off and repeats the proccess! It's frustrating! I've tried a different HDD, USB drive, everything! I did make sure to download the correct version (x86) but it keeps on that boot loop! I can't even access the settings!
If anyone knows how to fix this I would be very gratefull!
Sorry for bad english :/ I'm from Portugal...

Hi Sergio,
Welcome to the forums.
Have you tried changing the SATA from IDE to AHCI and then back again in the bios?

Try both settings as older machines didn't like AHCI sometimes and IDE worked and sometimes just swapping AHCI to IDE and rebooting and then changing it back also works and you also have USB boot enabled as the USB installers are UEFI and can have issues being read correctly even although it boots as we have found in the past.

Welcome to the Forum Sergiopt04.
Don't worry about your English its fantastic (and certainly 10x better than my Portuguese! :cheer: )

Its an odd one that you are getting as far as the windows boot screen (meaning the machine is detecting the flash drive and beginning to boot to it)

I would first try using a Linux Live USB (more info here: www.linuxliveusb.com/) to try booting into a lightweight Linux environment just to rule out that the machine is 100% working ok and its not a PSU, Motherboard or possibly memory issue.

a google search also came across this....

Well, Windows 10 request the eXecute Dispable bit, or NX bit and the first NX bit capable CPU's were AMD Opteron's that shipped in mid-2003. So any hardware older than this won't run Windows 10 for sure.

The first Pentium's to support this were Pentium 4's in late 2004. These were the so-called "J" processors because they had J's after their model number.

The Linux USB Works! I have Ubuntu installed, but Windows just doens't want to install! It detects the USB in the bios but then shows " Error 0x00000000A" and re-boots! I have tried changing the boot drive order, I've tried another flash drive, I swapped out the HDD, nothing! Just won't boot into installler!
As far as compatibility goes, it's a 2006 Pentium 4 HT with 2GB of RAM and a 250GB S-ATA hard drive from Samsung, the Motherboard is a OEM ASUS, LGA 775, and a LG Lightscribe DVD Reader/Writer.
I can't change IDE to AHCI because the BIOS doesn't have those options! It's a BIOS from 2007, nothing works.

I know it is a long way round but you could try installing W7 then upgrading from there to W10

So, I downloaded the Media Creation Tool (.exe) on a 16GB flash drive and then another 16GB flash drive.
Windows 7 doesn't want to install either, which is weird considering it had Win 7 installed.

The new hard drive* The original system came with no HDD, so I had a Samsung 250GB with 7, but I wanted to install 10. I first installed Ubuntu, it worked, then I tried to install 10 and this happened.

I would try and get the latest bios for the board incase its a boot from usb bug that has been sorted (I know you said its an ASUS OEM board so maybe not possible.

Also worth trying to install from DVD as a last resort, as it would appear the machine is running fine once installed
