I'm not that experienced with Windows 10 installation. I created a USB to install on an old tower that was running 10 with lots of blue screens of death with a myriad of errors. It crashed on the user and she attempted to fix it before passing the buck to me. I have tried installing on every hard drive that is listed as well as trying to roll back Windows and there is no saved image on any of the drives. It also will not allow me to format any of the drives.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you very much for your quick response.

I was able to install it FINALLY after deleting all the listed drives (except the 2 that were just storage - thankfully those files are intact).

I did use Rufus to create the USB installer and it actually worked. I'm ecstatic!

Did you do this install with only ONE drive physically connected?

No. The other 2 are internal drives.
Then you need to redo it.

If you look, your boot partition resides on one of the other drives.
C (Windows) on one drive, System Reserved on another.
Yes, it does that.
