During last several days I try to do clean installation of Windows 10 on my laptop. My laptop is Asus K70AB. When I try to boot from USB drive which has installation distributive I get different errors. I tried Media Creation Tool, Rufus, Windows 7 USB DVD Download Tool, nothing works. I tried several USB drives and tried to boot via every USB port of laptop. I did tens of successful clean installations of Windows on different computers(including this laptop), but now I faced with this problem. All my USB drives are 100% ok, because even now I can boot from every from them on other computers. I formated HDD of this laptop via my other PC, but it doesn't help. I have 210 version of BIOS, when I try to update to 211 I get an error.

Maybe someone knows how to solve this problem?

Hey looks like a very unusual problem to me. In doubt got an equal error with my old laptop .
Solved this by installing windows on another device on a blank ssd and then put it into old laptop to be able to boot.

Which message do you get when you disable quiet boot, Oboard Lan Boot Rom ?
Maybe change also Sata Type to AHCI and check UEFI Settings.
Or use rufus to generate exact uefi/legacy boot stick.. maybe your stick itself isnt bootable.

The same like they are enabled.

This laptop doesn't support UEFI.

You can see my screenshots, I did it yet.

You can read my first post. I have a lot of USB drives. And 4 days ago I booted from each of them via another PC.

The USB drive you've been trying to boot from.

See if that drive works on another computer, and try a different drive if you have one available.
Bro, I am sure you didn't read my first post completely, only partly. Because there is this important information.

I tried several USB drives and tried to boot via every USB port of laptop.
And this
All my USB drives are 100% ok, because even now I can boot from every of them on other computers.

I was mainly responding to this:

But my mistake.

If every one of your drives is able to boot on other PCs but not this laptop, you have the common denominator - the laptop. It sounds to me like a broken/buggy BIOS, especially given that attempting to update the BIOS results in an error.

Have you tried clearing CMOS/NVRAM? This may be difficult seeing as it's a laptop; removing the CMOS battery in my Alienware 17 requires complete disassembly as it's not accessible unless the mainboard is removed from the chassis. However, many OEMs provide some means of clearing CMOS/NVRAM by a key combo.

Can I reflash BIOS of this laptop?
I don't know. You'd have to check the Asus website to see if they still have your current BIOS version, although updating it would generally be better.
No. But I reseted BIOS settings to default of manufacture. Should I buy a new CMOS or just to plug out and plug in it?
No, the CMOS is usually soldered to the board. CMOS = Complimentary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor...which in contemporary terms means almost every integrated circuit and chip.

Resetting BIOS through the setup isn't quite the same as clearing all values. If you're able to access the BIOS battery (most likely by removing the bottom of the laptop) you can remove it and short the terminals for about 60 seconds. I searched for some information on your laptop and unfortunately the user manual wasn't any help.

Nah, I'm way too good looking to be related to you :D
