Where do you get the idea it thinks it's running from a USB drive? You didn't elaborate on that?

As for the error message, I assume it's during the "checking your PC" compatibility check?

AFAIK there was no change to W10 requirements with the Creators Update from a high level anyway.... 1GHz CPU, 2GB RAM, DX9 and 20GB HDD space.
