You can’t install Windows on a USB flash drive using Setup

Q: “You can’t install Windows on a USB flash drive using Setup.”

When trying to install Windows 10 from Windows Update the install fails and I get a screen that tells me:

“You can’t install Windows on a USB flash drive using Setup.”

I’m not trying to install it on a USB and i’m just trying to install it onto my computer which runs Windows 8.1 currently.

A:

Had the same problem and found this from google.

The second method is what fixed it for me.

2] The other fix few users reported as being helpful, was to change a registry value. Please be careful while working in the registry. Make sure you create a backup of Registry before you proceed.

  • From the Desktop screen press Win + R
  • Type in Regedit
  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
  • Change the value PortableOperatingSystem to “0” from 1.

Once you change the registry value please reboot the system and try to update again from Windows Store.
