So I've been trying to reinstall windows 10 on a mini computer and it's been killing me for hours now.
So I've got a copy of Windows 10 64-bit on my 64GB Kingston USB and I've got it plugged in the computer.
At first it couldn't detect it, then I went into the bios and found out I have almost no options other than "boot overdrive" where my usb was not found by the BIOS. Short story: After struggling for a while I noticed it had to be on UEFI because I did not have any options to disable secure boot, fast boot or enable legacy mode anywhere so it would only detect UEFI. So I re-did it, this time making it a UEFI type. Now sure, it finds my USB, but it when i try to boot from it, a quick black screen appears and I'm kicked right back into the BIOS.
I've tried Windows boot manager, but there's only a Windows 10 option and that just runs windows 10.
I've tried going into Advanced Startup and running it from there, but it only restarts and puts me in the windows boot manager.
I've tried the boot menu, but it also just runs my Windows 10 (And yes I did select my usb).
This computer is from China, I do not remember it's name but if that's important I'll try to find it.
I'd like to know why there are so little BIOS options, and why it won't just run the installation.
Only specs I could find are
Intel® Atom CPU Z3735F 1.33GHz
2GB DDR3 RAM.
BIOS is American Megatrends 2.16.1242
Don't know what else to add. Also sorry if this kinda isn't the right place to put this topic.
