    My Windows laptop was crushed and need a fresh reinstall. I was advised to use Microsoft USB/DVD Download Tool but it failed all the time. Says error around 50% percent.

    It could be a problem with your USB stick or with the ISO you are trying to convert. Make sure you have a good quality 4GB+ USB stick & confirm the md5 value matches what is published for your ISO (to confirm it is not corrupted).

    Note: you would need software, like md5free (freeware), to calculate the md5 value of the ISO
