After some reading and research I decided to ask you for help, because I can't ger trough this problem by myself.
I have a V3-772g laptop and I have used it with windows 8.1 since and not a single problem what so ever.
A few days earlier I have bought a brand new 240GB SSD and I decided to try how it would be with windows 10.
The problem that I am experiencing is that I can't boot windows 10 x64 fron USB or DVD.
I have switched the bios to legacy boot, have made the USB hdd first boot device and after that the DVD/CD drive but every time when it try to boot the instalation screen of the windows 10 I see for a second the logo of the windows, after that black screen with a flashing "-" in the upper left corner and after not more that 10 seconds I get a orange screen with some kind of vertical stripers. After some research I find out that this is a BitLocker screen and because there are some fonts problems in some computers it does not displays it correctly and you are seeing this orange think...but how can I get such a screen when I haven't activated it and moreover I am trying to intall windows 10 on a brand new SDD drive. With windows 8.1 x64 I can make a clean copy without any problems and I can boot it from usb/dvd and I am pretty sure that if I make a bootable SD card and put it the card reader I could boot even from there if the boot device options recognized it.
I have the latest bios for the laptop (Ver 1.15)...Have tried with 3 different USB drives and in every USB port just to be sure...I have made the USBs bootable with Rufus and with the Windows tool...and I haven't found someone with a similar problem like mine...
Just one more think to include...when I am on that "orange" screen with stripes...the computer is not "dead" ...it is responsive and when I hit enter for example I see a black screen for a less then a second and after that again the orange screen.
Thanks in advance for everyone's suggestions and clues that I am about to receive in order to understand and get over this strange problem.
P.S. - These days I will try to make a UEFI boot of windows 10 to see if this will solve the case...I really don't know the difference and did not see the need to educate myself because till now I have always used Legacy boot options and etc.
