    Windows 8.1 back clean install works not - help me please


    I'm desperate. After upgrade of my Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 it failed in process of installing software in new clean Windows 10. So, I deleted upgraded Windows 10 partition for clean install of Windows 8.1. And problems began:
    I used all usable removable media except ZIP, so DVD, USB, SD and CF cards and each medium looks like error in data. It's mysterious - I can't have each USB port, card reader and 4 used DVD drives broken, also media incorrectly written. When I begin install of 8.1 it fails with report that cannot find license terms, other media fails and reboot at install boot, in all cases = not possible install <any> OS - I tried also Linux Mint 10 (Commodore OS Vision) - each try failed. What did Windows 10 with my PC? I can boot only live DVD @ctive Boot Disk, not more - it's near week of trying - I used 3 USBs, each port, 4 microSD cards, 1 CF card, 5 DVD disks with same copies, 4 DVD drives - Windows 10 destroyed my PC? If, I hate it, if not I try to use first on virtual machine - final upgrade with all changes like real PC - but only if I will have any chance to install <any> OS.
    Can anybody explain me my situation?
    Thank you very much.

    Hi Samuria!
    BIOS of my MB (Asus P5Q-SE) has no option secure boot, few boot settings, boot order, not more.
    I tried also disable floppy 'cause when it was searching for license terms first was checked FDD

    There's no UEFI or anything like that in that MB.
    It's likely that some HW malfunction prevented you from installing W10 properly in first place, no OS can ruin hardware. It maybe your BIOS or maybe HDD.
    Did you try resetting BIOS to default settings ? Change CMOS battery? Time and date set in BIOS properly ?

    Disk where I want to install is MBR.
    HDDs are in AHCI mode, I can try to restore defaults, but it will mean that disks will be configured as IDE.
    Or?

    HDDs don't benefit from AHCI mode, SSDs yes.

    Hi!
    So, I did some things:
    I changed mode of HDDs to Enhanced IDE = this allowed to correctly come to install options where to install Windows - which HDD...
    Problem: always returned error that can't install to that place err. 0x80300024 - this was not first time in my life, so I disconnected all HDDs except install HDD, then it reported no error, so I began installing.
    When I saw 40% of copied files I was happy - but too early.
    New problem: Windows is installed from DVD and never reported error, now: Windows cannot install required files, may be corrupted or missing, error: 0x80070570.
    Here I am, what that f**ked Windows 10 did with my PC?
    For correction: yesterday I bought SATA DVDRW... Windows 10 had never to born - is here like a king but does nothing good.
    I go to create ISO image from install DVD and will see if is readable.
    Please if anyone knows this problem and can solve unwanted disconnecting HDDs, please help me.

    Thank you all very much!
