    you should totally try to install it using a usb stick or a micro sd if you have a 4GB one (or more), it is much easier to set up this way

    by the way, are you trying to install it on a computer with UEFI based bios or an older computer?

    What is your boot order? If boot from HDD is first, it won't boot from DVD or USB until you change boot order in BIOS or UEFI.

    i still suggest you to use an usb pen set up with "windows dvd/usb download tool" or an sd card, you should be able to install it but you might have problems afterwards. i recently tried to revive an old amilo pro with an athlon processor and ati graphics with win8.1 and it was slow as hell, not to mention that there's an 80% chance you won't be able to find a working graphics driver

    Same problem here with my old Toshiba laptop running XP. Stuck on the Win 10 logo screen.

    I've downloaded the 32 bit Win 10 Preview on a DVD and it works on another old computer running Win 7, and I don't think that one has UEFI.

    Bummer. Was really hoping to keep this laptop useful with Win 10.

    Any advice?

    Thanks!

    Same problem with an old Toshiba Equium L10. It came with XP pre-installed and has given yeoman service. I added the max RAM (total 2 Gb) and upgraded to Win 7 Home, which has run beautifully. But Windows 10 has refused to install by any of the methods (update, media tool, DVD .ISO). In every case it gets stuck at the Win 10 logo and goes no further. I have successfully upgraded to Win 10 on a range of (5) other PCs and laptops, including a PC with only 2GB RAM. I have tried most or all of the numerous ideas being propounded online - disconnecting peripherals, updating drivers, checking memory, changing language settings, clean boot etc. etc. but without success. Any brainspiration would be most welcome. Thank you.

    I've got this problem as well. I needed to upgrade my video card, and the newer card is not compatible with Windows XP, so I ended up buying a Windows 10 DVD. I have a clean hard drive to install it on, but cannot get it to boot, it just hangs at the Windows 10 splash screen. Its a pretty old system - AMD Quad core CPU from 2009, decent Gigabyte UD-3 motherboard, 4 GB of DDR-2 RAM, 500 GB hard drive, and new Radeon R9 series graphics card. Can't return it so I would really like to get this installed otherwise I'm out 100 bucks.

    Anyone got any ideas here?

    Well, I feel silly now. Someone else mentioned it took a long time before the first setup screen comes up, so I just sat and waited, and sure enough after about 10 minutes, the screen turned dark blue and the first set-up screen appeared. Windows 10 is now installed alongside my XP installation as a dual boot. Had to get a new USB wireless adapter since the old one was not compatible, but that was only 15 bucks. Posting from Windows 10 right now!

    The laptop should have a recovery partition. Google "Dell Laptop <model number> Recovery"
