    Where did you perform this procedure? Was it during the Windows setup?

    1) Did you do a full disk image that can be restored before you started all of this?
    2) Did you do a free upgrade to Win10 first and confirm it was activated?
    3) Are you now trying to do a clean install and, if so, what media (ISO, bootable install USB or DVD) are you trying to use?

    For a clean install, you would do best by deleting all partitions in the front end of the clean install routine (selecting Custom Install) and let the Win10 install create the required partitions. There would be no need to format any partitions beforehand.

    Please answer above and provide any more details which will help us to pinpoint the problem and help you.

    If oem install was Win10 and was already activated and you are having problems doing the restore, you could download install media for your particular version of Win10 to run the clean install - that may have the advantage of doing away with any "extras" on recovery disk if that was supplied by manufacturer.

    See Brink's thorough tutorial on clean install here, paying particular attention to links out to other tutorials on obtaining media and other steps that may not be obvious to you: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/1...n-install.html

    Whether there's another problem causing your symptoms is hard to say depending on disk type and layout and BIOS interaction - whether its a legacy BIOS boot scheme or UEFI and whether disk is set up as MBR or GPT. Brink also covers these considerations either directly in the tutorial or in others the tutorial links out to.

    I would suggest you make a vanilla Windows 10 install DVD or USB using the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool (you'll have to use an operating computer, obviously, to make it):
    Windows 10

    Just make sure to select the exact same version of Windows 10 that was on the now blank computer before. Boot from the USB or DVD, select custom install, delete all the partitions on the hard drive, then install Windows 10 to the unallocated space. When it asks for a product key, click "skip" or "do this later". I'm betting your recovery disk(s) are bad.
