    At what stage is it failing? Have you checked the HDD/SSD for errors/bad sectors?

    Usually I use either “chkdsk (drive letter): /r” from the command prompt or the hdd manufacturers utility for a hdd.

    For an ssd I usually just use the ssd manufacturers utility, but I’ve never needed to test outside of windows.

    I would also try a different usb drive to install from just in case an use a different usb port as well, likely the quickest option to test first.

    I would also check where you got the Windows image from for the USB. A bad image or a bad USB drive is bound to run into issues.

    Then I would also check if you’re installing the correct version of Windows (although I think you would get different errors if this is the case). Specifically, if you’re installing legacy Windows onto a MBR formatted drive, or UEFI Windows onto a GPT formatted drive (and if the USB was formatted correctly for this).

    1. Test the flash drive with h2testw. Format it before running the test.
    2. Test the hard drive with Crystal Disk Info or any HDD testing utility that lets you run an extended S.M.A.R.T. test. A format is NOT needed before running the test, but be safe and back up your data anyway.
    3. Test the RAM with Memtest86+

    I would run all three of these tests before doing anything else.

    I had a laptop that wouldn't install ANY version of windows due to the SATA AHCI drivers being non-existent, so I took the drive out, slaved it to my PC, and installed the OS to the drive with Rufus as a Windows To Go installation. Then it booted up just fine and finished the installation. Hope this helps.

    Ah, the Acer laptops. Later versions of Windows has problems installing on dual channel DDR3 mobile RAM. Try removing one stick of RAM if you have two sticks.
