    Hello,
    I want to thank you in advance for you attention.

    I installed the W10TP in my main machine yesterday, but got some weird issues in the way.

    First I tried to boot from the pen USB to install and was not recognized.

    I forced the boot on the USB in my BIOS, by putting the pen in first bootable device and accepting for boot other devices, from there I completed the installation.

    But after started the weird issues I got back to the BIOS to put my settings, SSD booting first and disabling booting other devices.

    The Windows simply don't boot with this change of setting or removing the installation pen, to boot the Windows I need to go back to the setting when I installed the W10TP for the first time.

    Thank you for your time one more time.

    What type of BIOS - Legacy or UEFI?

    Just a guess but it sounds like your boot files (Boot Loader and BCD) are on your flash drive. If you post a screenshot of diskpart - list disk, list part, list vol & bcdedit most power users on this board would be able to help you. Or you could try "fix boot" from Windows Recovery.

    Thank you ByrdieMan for the reply.

    The BIOS is Legacy in a EVGA x58 Classified.

    I made the pen with Rufus latest version.

    From what I can tell, it just needs to be the active partition for a legacy boot.
    Usually rufus handles this.
    Have you made sure it was mbr partitioned for BIOS boot?

    Thank you Murphy for the reply.

    Your AIO's are really amazing.

    Yes I think I choose the best option in Rufus [MBR Partition Scheme for BIOS or UEFI Computers] it is the 1st one and is default on Rufus 1.4.10.514
