moderated Re: Operating System unassisted install
Learned something new regarding usb drives...toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I purchased a usb flash drive and my computer, the one I am now using, could see the drive without a problem. The computer attempting to install the operating system could not. A neighbor that heads the computer department for a large local school district stopped by and let me borrow his "bootable usb drive". I had no idea there was such but the computer recognized this drive, the install went well and all in all, everything ended successfully.
Another thing regarding Dell laptops/computers. Talking to Dell, I told them I wanted to upgrade my ram/memory from 8 to 16 Gb. They told me my XPS 15Z laptop only could accept the 8 Gb as maximum. I read others being able to up their ram and I purchased the 16gb memory, 2x8Gb, and it recognized the memory and is working without a problem.
Thanks for all your comments/assistance...

There should not be a need to do anything special regarding the USB drive's bootability. The Microsoft Media Creation Tool handles that just fine.
