    Hello Friends!

    This is really stupid but I just want your opinion.

    Step 1. I boot and log into antiX.

    Step 2. I log into Windows 7 32-bit via virtualbox.

    Step 3. Inside that virtual Windows, I create a Windows 10 64-bit live USB using rufus.

    Do you think it would have any problems?

    I’ve actually tried it and the live USB creation was successful.

    However the installation of Windows 10 onto the physical hard drive (by booting the live USB) was NOT successful. I think it hanged.

    I was wondering if anyone has ever tried that. Or maybe I have a defective flash drive?

    Thank you for your time.

    I naively believe your approach should work.

    Did you try to create live USB of e.g. Linux and install it?

    Win 10 installation hangs – is it possible to extract more information, the reason for failure, is the target HW supported etc.?

    I know that updating/upgrading Win 10 between the release cycles (e.g. 19.03 to 19.10) can be a pain in the a$$.
    As a result, I assume that the same applies to installing.

    Create live USB of Linux inside a virtual operating system? Nope. Never tried it.

    As to your second question, I don’t think I can extract more information.

    Anyway I’ll try it again anyway.

    Thank you for your response!
