    You probably should have started a new thread.

    I'm not much of a troubleshooter, but your error message looks more like a Windows problem than anything BIOS related.

    A possible fix: Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade
    Thank you for the help, I cannot get into windows though, so this doesnít help unfortunately.

    You can check your firmware rev in Device Manager, Firmware, System Firmware. Look at the Device ID.

    I have never done a firmware update that failed and reverted to the previous version, but I don't know that never happens.
    The firmware version listed in device manager is not that accurate. It should be checked with System Information instead. For example, my laptop:

    Oops, sorry. I know better than that.

    Maybe startup repair? Run Startup Repair in Windows 10

    All they are going to do is charge you lots of $$$ to do a clean install of Windows that you can do for free.

    I've never personally tried Geek Squad, but I have read that is precisely what they do.

    Also, they make no attempt at data preservation. Expect to lose everything on the drive.

    I wouldnít mind that since I canít even install a clean windows myself and it will depend on what ďlotsĒ is exactly. I have a backup of all my data as well so not too worried if they canít recover.

    Why can't you do a clean install?

    When attempting to do it, my USB with ISO is in USB 2.0, however it says missing media.

    I can get to step 8 in the link you provided, but after clicking install, thatís when it says missing media.

    If that is literally true, that isn't what you need. You need a USB drive with the contents of the ISO copied onto it.

    For a non-UEFI PC, you'd also have to prepare the USB as bootable.
