Can't install any version of Windows on ASUS K550JX


Aug 19, 2016
As the title says, every time I try to install Windows on my brand new laptop I get the same error that happens during installing updates. Error says that installation files are corrupt but I've tried with several legit DVDs and none works so it must be something with laptop. I haven't tried installing Linux or something because I want Windows.

Is there anything I can do to fix it or should I just return it?

UPDATE: I've succesfully installed Ubuntu. Any ideas how to get Windows up and running?

Yeah, after I installed Ubuntu I tried again with Windows. It worked! I don't know why I had to do all of that but I'm glad it did.
