Im having problems installing windows 10 on my compaq 8200 elite. No matter the drive, or anything i do i cant seem to get it installed. As a "techy person" this is really stumping me. I hvae tried next to all of the internets fixes, but nothing seems to work. What should i actually do?
Thanks in advance, Aatu.

Have you tried downloading the W10 ISO file instead of the Microsoft tool automatically making the bootable USB flash drive, and using the free Rufus utility to create the bootable media?
I have two 8200 Elite CMT's both running W11 currently, and I used Rufus to create a bootable USB flash drive from a W10 ISO file.
I have installed both ways, Legacy and EFI.
Never had an issue when installing W10.
For an EFI installation, select the GPT partition scheme in Rufus and for a Legacy installation, select the MBR partition scheme in Rufus.
