I have an Intel Compute Stick model STK1A32WFC that had previously had Windows 10 installed on it. It was a full install so the Windows 8.1 with Bing restore partition is gone. It was time for a reimage because it was old, so I also updated the BIOS to the current version.
But now I am unable to complete a fresh reinstall of Windows 10, always hanging on the attached "media driver" error.
I have tried these with no success:

That's all I can think of right now. Any ideas for getting past this error?
Thanks for any help!
Thank you for the assistance.
There are tutorials on net, how to create Windows 10 Installation Media on SD card, however I didn't do this yet. I suggest that you insert the USB HUB to the USB port on the Power Supply brick and the USB with the Windows Installation Media in the port on the Compute Stick. If Windows 10 was installed and activated previously on this device, you don't need the product key. Click on "I don't have product key" and continue with the installation process. The Windows will be reactivated again.
"I do not get prompted to enter my product key, installation doesn't get to that point." are you installing the correct Windows 10 option? 32 bit rather than 64 bit. You must chose also the correct edition Home or Pro (same as was you upgrade from 8.1 to 10 ). Are following the tutorial ?
You see only one boot option, because probably your Bios is n UEFI bios. I can't verify this.
You might want to try it with a powered USB hub, I have seen installations fail because there was not enough power supplied by the USB port alone to read the USB drive reliably.
