    BSOD loop, stop code: critical_process_died

    Computer Model: Lenova Yoga 720

    Sorry I can't provide much information because I am locked out of my computer. A few days back, I attempted to do a clean installation of Windows 10 on my laptop through a system reset. The system reset failed and it keeps taking me through this BSOD loop everytime I attempt to restart my computer, reset it, or shut it down and turn it back on. The stop code is CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED. I've tried the safe mode boot already. I'm not really good with computers and i'm refraining from taking my computer to a technician. Any way I can fix this?

    Thank you.

    2) How old is the computer?
    3) Are all of the hardware components the original components?
    4) What is the history of the drive? Have there been any drive problems such as chkdsk on boot, paging errors, bad blocks, etc.?
    5) When was the last time the drive was checked using SMART, short or long generic testing?

    6) Create a bootable windows 10 iso:
    Download Windows 10

    7) Boot to the Windows 10 iso repetitively clicking the applicable keyboard key:

    8) Click external USB hard drive
    9) When you view the Windows icon wait approximately 5 - 10 minutes for the iso to load
    10) Click language, time, currency, keyboard
    11) Do not click install as this is to perform a clean install deleting partitions, formatting, making an unallocated drive and installing Windows 10 version 1709.
    12) In the left lower corner click repair your computer
    13) Open the windows 10 iso advanced troubleshooting menu
