I am trying to use the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool to create a bootable USB flash drive but am getting an error message. It seems download the files successfully but fails part way through transferring the files to the USB drive.
The error message code I get is "Something went wrong ... 0x80070456 - 0xA0019"
The steps I take are
I am running Windows 10 Professional. The USB drive is 64Gb.
The real problem is the the USB device's formatting type . You need a FAT32 USB not an NTFS one. Indeed all the USB greater than 32GB NEED an NTFS system and is quite normal that the procedure doesn't work with them. You have to change in any case the system format of the USB in FAT32. ;)
The answer for me was to use a smaller USB drive. It worked successfully on an 8Gb USB flash drive.
I had searched for answers on the internet and it seems like everyone who was having similar problems were using USB drives greater than 32Gb.
Hope this helps someone.
