    Gateway SX2370-UB30P Desktop. Quad core. 4 gig of ram. 1 GB sata died. Trying to install Windows 10 on new WD 1TB hard drive using jump drive in USB port. Ran setup, says setup is starting. I checked 'I do not have a product key' because this machine had Windows 10 on it before crashing. Checked to accept license. Chose Custom Install because this is not an upgrade install. When Windows set up the partitions it said I needed to format partition4 because it had an unconventional NTFS file system. I clicked format on partition 4. Clicked next and, it says Installing Windows and within a few seconds a BSOD and I it says :'driver overran stack buffer'. I get that every time I try. I could sure use some help please.

    Try to start the Setup again, and in Custom Install, just delete all Partitions, after that choose the size for the "C" Partition in MB's like 150000 for 150GB and select that Partition for to install Windows 10. The Setup would then create the other may needed partitions on its own and leave the "Rest" unpartitioned. That normally should be work with no problems., if you had deleted all existing partitions on that drive up front. If you have more then one HDD/Drive, disconnect that drives before installing Windows 10 and reconnect them after the install was done!
