Hi

Can we go step by logical step please.

W10 is available from Microsoft if needed.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

So the USB you have inserted, does it already have W10 or some other bootable Operating System ON/Installed?

To access your hard drive you need a bootable device, and then a second separate device to copy onto.

 

please give some more details of the USB in use.

Hi

 

I doubt that.

Does it have this kind of Directory?

D:\>dir
 Volume in drive D is Recovery
29/10/2018  23:48               128 autorun.inf
29/10/2018  23:48           408,074 bootmgr
29/10/2018  23:48         1,452,856 bootmgr.efi
20/03/2017  04:15    <DIR>          efi

13/08/2017  12:42    <DIR>          sources
22/11/2018  10:25    <DIR>          support

But for me it's ESC and then F9

 

Then..

Use Command Prompt and use the XCOPY command.

xcopy C:\Users\*.* E:\Users /s
