I'm trying to create a USB to reinstall windows 10, but at the end of running the windows 10 set up tool, it gives me an error. It says error code: 0x80042405 - 0xA001A

I'm trying to reinstall windows for a customer of mine on their laptop. Is there a better way to go about this? The built in recovery/reset in the troubleshooting menu is not working.

Try this, Download the Media Creation Tool directly to the USB drive that you want to use a bootable device. In simple terms, download the Tool into the same USB which you want to use as an installation media.
