How do I make a USB boot stick? (Win 10)
I recently upgraded to the Creators Edition of Windows 10 (Win 10 Pro 64, legacy mode, hard disks MBR formatted), but I'm not happy with it and want to go back.
Luckily I made a backup of my hard disks with AOMEI Backupper 3.2 before on an external USB harddrive.
My problem: How do I make a USB boot stick? (My PC has no CD/DVD drives)
- I tried AOMEI Backupper > Utilities > Create Bootable Media > Linux, and I was able to boot my PC with it, but it doesn't recognize my external USB harddisk where my backups are located. It only shows the USB boot stick, my internal harddrives C: and and some LAN thingy. But my external USB HD "E:" isn't there.
- Then I tried AOMEI Backupper > Utilities > Create Bootable Media > Windows PE.
I downloaded the 1.7GB KB3AIK_EN.iso, extracted it to a folder and ran StartCD.exe.
I installed the Windows AIK successfully, but AOMEI Backupper doesn't recognize it. It says "Windows AIK is not installed".
Afterwards I updated AOMEI Backupper to the latest version (4.0.3), but the problems persist:
- the Linux USB boot stick doesn't see my external USB harddrive
- I can't make the Windows PE boot stick because it says "Windows AIK is missing".
What should I do?
