      - try the same USB flash drive on a different PC/laptop to see if it's working there- try to make the USB flash drive bootable again ► ru-clip.net/video/ydDCw-a2_bg/video.html
      - try to use another USB flash drive
      - temporarily remove even the USB keyboard/mouse

    Seems not to be fixed :( ... I followed what you did in the video, I also have Wireless Mouse USB, removed it but nothing... This error actually never happened to me, and now everyone can fix it, but I can't. I'm so mad now... Is there any solution except going to service? Thanks.

    hey man im trying to clean install windows 10 and after i press any key it keeps showing that windows in the middle and nothing happens i wonder if it's stuck or it really takes alot till shows up the installing process?

    • furulevi
      furulevi  Year ago

      It requires some time, but it also might have some difficulties... Are you starting the installation from a scratched DVD, or from a slower USB 2.0 drive or from the hard drive?

      Test the flash drive under Windows using VirtualBox, see if there it can boot from it. Or try to make it bootable once again.

    Hey buddy, i got a new HDD 1 TB, I inserted the flash drive, it booted and then setup for Windows 7 was also done. Now after the setup was done, i get the error "A disk read error occurred". I only have the USB receiver of the mouse inserted. Plus, i have also tried without any other device in any usb port. Still the same issue, any help?

    • Rahul Singh
      Rahul Singh 2 years ago +1

      Finally, enabling everything USB related in BIOS and a new ISO for windows worked. Thank you for your help buddy!

    • furulevi
      furulevi  2 years ago

      - enable everything USB related in the BIOS
      - make sure motherboard drivers are installed under Windows
      - try to download and install a newer Windows also (keep the existing one) and try it under that one
      - temporarily unplug some devices inside and outside the PC, for example another hard drive, or cd/dvd drive, or even the mouse
