I just installed a new hard drive on my second laptop, so it has no OS yet. I use the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool to prepare a Lexar 16GB drive for installing Windows 10 x64 on my ASUS ZenBook UX32VD (Intel® Core™ i7 3517U Processor), but although the system BIOS correctly begins the boot procedure from the Lexar USB drive (I've chosen the options in the BIOS settings so it will use the UEFI enabled Lexar drive in accord with this helpful post in the ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Forum), it stops and the screen goes blank after a brief period of hard drive activity following the Windows 10 logo being shown on screen.
The Lexar drive LED shows that it's being read, the Windows 10 logo shows on the screen, then the spinning loading graphic appears underneath the Windows 10 logo, the screen goes blank while the hard drive is active, then no progress (the screen remains blank).
I've used Seagate's SeaTools application to verify that my hard drive is in fact working correctly, and the hard drive passes all test.
I've also used the Rufus USB tool in each of the three possible partition schemes without success (same result).
My system is running the latest BIOS available for the motherboard and it was running Windows 10 x64 prior to the hard drive swap. I am not sure how to proceed from here, so I am reaching out to the community for assistance. Thank you for any help!
