Hello All,

As in the title and on System 1 in my Specs.
This laptop is Win 11 compliant and running Win 10.
The USB stick was created on this system with the media creation tool.
It boots and does the usual ,language keyboard etc.
Then asks where to install and I give it an unallocated partition.
It goes ahead and reboots to the screen as pictured, saying "Getting Ready" and never stops.
Anyone with a solution?

Ciao, Han.

Have you tried removing the USB at the first restart? Any setup files should be already copied to the hard disk. I would also disable temporarily some devices in UEFI Firmware (BIOS) so Windows won't search for drivers and proceed to finish setup. You can then enable them and install the drivers.

This is usually a driver related issue. What I would try is to export all 3rd party drives from working W10 installation and inject them into install.wim on usb installation drive.

You would have to convert install.esd to install.wim as well.

Or you can disable all non-important devices in BIOS so Setup won't try to install drivers. After installation you can enable them again and install the drivers.
That does not always work and many bioses are very limited anyway and may not have such a feature.

By injecting 3rd party drivers from a working OS, you are making them available at install time, and this nearly always works. I have a batch file I run that does all the hard work in about 10 minutes.

WIN 10
Hi guys,

I tested with the same usb key on the same laptop's internal ssd after wiping all partitions with Gparted.
Turned Secure Boot back on and Win 11 installed rapidly as the only OS.
After a rewipe and then installing Win 10 fresh, and then Win 11 as Dual Boot, the message and the wheel came back.
Then I did a new Dual Boot install with everything disconnected and the laptop on battery.
The message and the wheel where there for exactly two and a half hours and low and behold the machine continued the win 11 install.
Something about the Win 10 install must be freaking it out.
After install was complete I had to feed it some drivers from my Win 10 driver backup as some where not on Windows update yet.

Thank you for your help, Han

I can't seem to figure out how to do a dual boot installation. I created a 100GB partition to install Windows 11 to try it out. I formatted to NTFS and assigned a drive letter to D: No matter what I try I never get the option to install on a different partition. I tried from a windows media USB and directly from the ISO. This is my first attempt at a dual boot installation so I must be missing something.....

Are you booting the computer from the USB flash drive?

I have tried that with no success. It just wants to override my Windows 10 installation and never gives me any options.

If you created a partition for Windows 11 and formatted it as NTFS, you select the custom install option. The next screen will give you a list of drives and partitions. On that screen just select the partition that you created for Windows 11 and click next.

That is the screen I never get. I am going to try recreating the USB installer from Microsoft and try again.

If you run the setup inside Windows, the first option is to upgrade. You must select the second option (custom, advanced) to give you the choice to install on another drive. The safest option is download the Windows 11 ISO, create a bootable DVD or USB and boot from there. The upgrade option will not be available, so you only can choose the second option.
