    Hello Mathew, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    You can select the "Remove everything" option to reset Windows 10.

    In that case, check at the manufacturer's website for the laptop and its model number to see if they may have a download available for factory recovery. If so, then you could use it to do a factory reset with instead.

    If they don't, then you could use OPTION ONE below to create Windows 10 installation media to use to do a reset with.

    Next, you would connect the Windows 10 installation USB, and try resetting Windows 10 again. It should use the USB to reset with now.

    Other than to sign in to your user account that you setup during the reset, no.
