Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I was planning to upgrade my laptop and bought an 8GB stick from Crucial (same specs as the original one) and a SATA SSD to replace the old HDD installed, after installing memory and SSD, when I try to boot using the Windows USB boot disk, it goes to boot loop, replaced the original memory and hard drive, now I got a repair screen no matter what I do. Is there any catch to install Windows on it?

 

Laptop Specs:

HP 15-bw008ca - E2 9000e / 1.5 GHz

4 GB RAM

500 GB HDD

15.6" 1366 x 768 (HD) - Radeon R2

Win 10 Home 64-bit

 

Regards.

 I installed a new firmware available on the product's support page and it did work, now it recognizes the thumb drive with Windows and installs it.

Sorry, what are you trying to do now ? 8GB to replace the old HDD won't work.

My note has 4GB and I upgraded to 8GB RAM, the HDD I'm trying to swap for an SSD, but after inserting the USB boot disk and starting the laptop it starts in a boot loop.
