look in the downloads and see if its listed still. if so, delete it. could install edge/chrome if you cant get it working.That doesn't work and clearing Firefox browser cache doesn't help. It says click 64 bit version button. Then little dialog box says it's beginning, but nothing happens.
If you visit the ISO download page/USB creation tool page in Chrome and set your User Agent to iPhone (using dev tools), you will be given a direct ISO download link.
If it's an ISO, just dd it to your usb drive and it'll probably work.But you still can't run the official media creation tool...
The problem I've found with third party bootable media creation tools under Linux (and MacOS/Windows) is they try to burn media using FAT32 and the Windows ISO is now too big for FAT32 - So your bootable media works fine under a normal legacy BIOS, but isn't recognized under certain UEFI's. However, I know there are workarounds that involve a GPT as a FAT32 partition and install the ISO under an NTFS partition on the same thumb drive.
Etcher copies images to drives byte by byte, without doing any transformation to the final device, which means images that require special treatment to be made bootable, like Windows images, will not work out of the box.
IIRC Rufus creates a bootable image which is why it's not so good to use with linux ISO:s as it messes up things. It's also possible to make the image bootable when using dd but that requires changing a flag using command line...
It works without a key only for a few days, then starts nagging for one. If you're comfortable with a nag text and black background, you never need a key.Some people say that for some time, they just download windows 10, install, pass the validation number part and it just works. Doesn't need to be paid or validated.
Not sure, but you already sold your soul for W10 so maybe they don't ask you anything more.
I kind of feel fooled. I just paid a month ago full licence fee for a brand new Windows 10 I downoaded from M$ shop.

Well, so I'm about 150 euros poorer for no reason.
I only used Windows 10 3 days for e-learning. I may use it probably in March for the same reason for another 3 days and probably in june or july exactly the same.
Quite sure I won't have the vaccine until then. It's kind of crazy that in France, governement is inventing and maintaining a dispute that nobody cares about who's going to have the vaccine, how and when, debating while all the vaccines, hundred of thousand have been delivered by Germany long ago. I'm quite sure some vaccines will become obsolete while those crazy guys will still be debating and still giving vaccines at the pace of 500 per week (yes believe it or not this is how fast it's going in France). In the mean time, I'm kind of stuck. Very difficult to have meetings and all the projets are still artificially down in lockdown. Also it's impossible to meet people in the administrations. It's kind of continuous vacation for them. All my business is down, but still I have taxes and social charges that didn't disappear, and an expensive professionnal insurance to pay etc etc. All my savings will vanish around mid 2021 at this pace. Also professionnal training is still mandatory. Win 10 PC may serve another couple of times. Just hate Win 10 so much. I'm still on Win 7 with all the professional software around it and for some time in the future.
It's perfectly legal to use Win 10 without a key, you just lose some features and get a watermark.Jandor- those who dont have to activate like that most likely are installing on an OEM system like dell/hp etc. otherwise there is no legal way to just not enter a key and use windows 10.
Or maybe they're just saying. I didn't have time to test. However, I don't think I'll be using any other Win 10 since I don't have any use apart for e-learning and the software that needs to be used then. So I own one Win 10 and it's okay. I own another on Bootcamp on a Macbook but I blocked the updates since it trashes my legal software and I have to ask for new validations or my be even render the software incompatible, which works great now.Jandor- those who dont have to activate like that most likely are installing on an OEM system like dell/hp etc. otherwise there is no legal way to just not enter a key and use windows 10.
I suppose for my small use it would have been acceptble. However I'm not sure Microsoft Teams would have allowed it. It's actuelly using my M$ account based on my email.It's perfectly legal to use Win 10 without a key, you just lose some features and get a watermark.
