When I attempted to start up a new laptop to install genuine Windows 10, (downloaded from Microsoft website), via USB I received the error message,

"Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We'll restart for you".

Error message also said ... "Attempted write to read only memory (WimFsf.sys)".

The laptop attempted to start several times but the same message was seen.

The new laptop is an ASUS X554LJ-XX025D, free dos.

Please help as this is my sons Christmas present.

Many thanks

Retry the download and creation of the Media Creation Tool

It could be that the first try was corrupted.
Be sure that you're using a reliable internet connection and decent quality media for the drive.
