Make sure you are following ALL of the instructions as outlined here (Including during the creation of the installation media):


Yes, I'd wait longer. Maybe as long at ten minutes, just to be safe. Sometimes it really does take a while for some operations to complete in the background when using Windows 10 with older hardware.

I agree. While I haven't specifically seen this happen, creating new media and making sure to choose the "for use on a different computer" and unchecking the box next to "use the recommended options for THIS PC" and then making sure that next to architecture on that screens options you specifically have 64 bit selected. If 64 bit IS selected, and the rest of the grayed out options there are correct, then there is probably no need to uncheck that box or mess with those options. Only if the current system you are creating the media on is a 32 bit system and 32 bit is what is seen on those options would manually changing it to 64 bit be likely to have any effect.

I'd still probably try creating new installation media and try a different thumb drive as well.
