Windows 10: pre-installed Windows 10 can't be re-installed
I did the test and nothing came out. Then I tried to install Windows 10 using bootable UBS. Then during the first loading screen I always the same error BSOD screen PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.
I tried to test HDD from BIOS (Diagnostics) in the black screen picture. and next I got an error. Please look at the next pic.
As I said, I deleted all the partition and installed Ubuntu so there is no C or recovery drive anymore. How can I access command prompt then? Looking for your suggestions.

NavyLCDR suggested the above Bootable PE Rescue Disk since it contains AOEMI Partition Assistant Pro, and there is also the question whether Ubuntu may have taken over the MBR, and that is why Windows 10 is not finding the partition to which you want W10 installed.
We would appreciate your posting an update.
