I don't have any files that i want to save on this laptop. Thus want to wipe everything away.

yes i deleted all those partitions.

And i all i see on this screen now is


disk 0 parititon 1 100mb total 86mb free
disk 0 partition 2 232.8gb total 232.gb free


No all the reinstalls i did ever was with my old laptops. I never got it right. Also i had ppl that did reinstall of window for me previously. However... none of them ever did it right either so thats why i ask this.

Sounds like you're not booted into installer. Did you boot the installer from Asus boot key which is normally F8 key at boot to choose the Kingston Stick. Your model may be different so check the Manual.


Do you have the Drive Options tools shown in Steps 7 and 8?

Did you Delete all partitions to create New, to format and install to partition 2?

I pressed f2 i believe and then clicked on the kingston usb 2.0 when screen with many options poped up. So yes im sure i did it right as oppose to earlier when i made the mistake of just clicking it directly.

When i highlight partition 2... they all greyed out. Its just refresh and load driver that isn't greyed.

When i highlight parititon 1... i could click on everything except new. I did click on format earlier but that didnt do anything as is still show 100mb total and 86mb free.

I clicked next. What im bit confused is why it shows 100mb total and 86mb free in parition 1 and 232.8gb total and 232.2gb free in partition 2. Shouldn't it be 100mb and 100mb and 232.8gb and 232.2gb? The dell xps 8100 was like that so not sure why this isn't.

Could that be sign of virus? im pretty sure my usb have viruses which is why i formatted both of them before i did this. Also this asus laptop is very slow and im position it has viruses and it has lot of malware as well so im a bit skeptital why the 100mb and 232.8gb isn't the same for free space as total space.

Windows cannot install required file Make sure all files required for insallation are available and restart the installation


error code 0x80070015


Im thinking this has to do with me stupidly cancellating the install earlier.

F2 would only get you into BIOS setup where you can choose the device to boot first. WHile you can choose the Kingston stick there to set it first to boot, its better to keep the hard drive set first to boot and then use the Asus boot key which is normally F8 key at boot to choose the Kingston Stick. Your model may be different so check the Manual.

This is because if you set the Kingston Stick first to boot in F2 BIOS setup you will need to unplug it when it reboots during the middle of the install or else it will start all over again.

So reboot and keep tapping the F8 key vigorously before you even see the first boot screen to get the Asus boot menu. If that doesn't work reboot into F2 to set the stick first to boot. But you have to save the setting and exit then watch for prompt to boot stick when it starts up.
