129. 00:07:38:28 / 00:07:43:12 - have all these extra things we're using
130. 00:07:40:75 / 00:07:46:30 - a virtual machine so we can make this
131. 00:07:43:12 / 00:07:50:52 - video for you so here we get but this is
132. 00:07:46:30 / 00:07:52:62 - it the efi USB device that is roughly
133. 00:07:50:52 / 00:07:54:93 - what you're looking for okay make sure
134. 00:07:52:62 / 00:07:57:52 - no other USB devices are plugged in
135. 00:07:54:93 / 00:08:03:45 - except that flash drive that has the
136. 00:07:57:51 / 00:08:07:18 - windows 10 on it click that ok and when
137. 00:08:03:45 / 00:08:10:16 - it boots up it'll give almost the window
138. 00:08:07:18 / 00:08:12:66 - what it is the windows installed screen
139. 00:08:10:16 / 00:08:14:28 - but we're not clicking install we're
140. 00:08:12:66 / 00:08:16:74 - going down this little bit over here
141. 00:08:14:28 / 00:08:22:99 - where it says repair your computer
142. 00:08:16:74 / 00:08:27:25 - troubleshoot command prompt and now that
143. 00:08:22:99 / 00:08:29:65 - one file that one folder etc that was
144. 00:08:27:25 / 00:08:32:74 - causing us problems make sure that you
145. 00:08:29:64 / 00:08:35:43 - actually find your drives now the way
146. 00:08:32:74 / 00:08:40:12 - you do it is you type a drive letter and
147. 00:08:35:44 / 00:08:47:11 - a colon now in this case it is C ok but
148. 00:08:40:12 / 00:08:50:72 - sometimes the the USB when it boots up
149. 00:08:47:11 / 00:08:53:72 - it changes drive letters
150. 00:08:50:72 / 00:08:57:41 - you might want to go like E and then
151. 00:08:53:72 / 00:09:01:67 - type dir just to make sure it doesn't
152. 00:08:57:40 / 00:09:03:27 - have what was before if you're looking
153. 00:09:01:66 / 00:09:07:63 - for roughly something that has Windows
154. 00:09:03:27 / 00:09:09:76 - users Program Files profiles 86 etc like
155. 00:09:07:63 / 00:09:12:87 - that over here you can see setup so it's
156. 00:09:09:76 / 00:09:18:94 - obviously not our II drive F Drive
157. 00:09:12:87 / 00:09:20:75 - doesn't have an F Drive okay and so we
158. 00:09:18:94 / 00:09:24:62 - know it's our C Drive
159. 00:09:20:75 / 00:09:29:62 - generally it is C sometimes not okay
160. 00:09:24:62 / 00:09:31:73 - dir you can see we're here and I
161. 00:09:29:62 / 00:09:36:68 - actually don't want that folder as well
162. 00:09:31:73 / 00:09:41:08 - I can delete that if I want to delete
163. 00:09:36:67 / 00:09:43:78 - that as well okay but we'll do for now
164. 00:09:41:08 / 00:09:48:63 - what we were initially trying to get rid
165. 00:09:43:78 / 00:09:52:92 - of so CD change directory into Windows
166. 00:09:48:63 / 00:09:59:08 - which is where it was then backslash
167. 00:09:52:92 / 00:10:07:66 - system32 okay so now we're in that
168. 00:09:59:08 / 00:10:10:32 - folder okay and we have our test folder
169. 00:10:07:66 / 00:10:14:68 - that is causing us problems okay because
170. 00:10:10:32 / 00:10:17:87 - of all those issues as you can see over
171. 00:10:14:68 / 00:10:21:64 - here just just trying to go into that
172. 00:10:17:87 / 00:10:22:75 - test folder for some reason it's gone
173. 00:10:21:64 / 00:10:28:14 - all funny
174. 00:10:22:75 / 00:10:38:41 - okay remove directory forward slash

179. 00:10:47:63 / 00:10:56:99 - once within Windows is now solvable
180. 00:10:53:71 / 00:11:02:00 - outside of Windows but still using the
181. 00:10:56:99 / 00:11:05:39 - Windows system let's try and go into our
182. 00:11:02:00 / 00:11:10:58 - test drive test folder again as you can
