You'll need one to do the Win 10 OS install, and one to store your personal data.


And when using the MediaCreation tool, don't select 'upgrade'
You need to 'create media for a different PC".
This will put all the needed stuff to doa clean install of Win 10 on that USB.

When ready, you then boot from that USB and do the install.
This WILL wipe out everything on your current drive.
Win 8.1 OS, applications, personal data...everything.

Clean install is what you need to do.
For whatever reason, your current OS cannot be simply 'upgraded' in place.

Save all your personal files elsewhere.
Wipe and reinstall the new OS.
