    Fixed: Windows 10 can't connect to the Internet. Stuck in Setup

    Hello there! I am in desperate need of help in solving my rather unique problem: My beloved MSI GP 2PE Leopard (Intel i7, 16GB RAM) is stuck in Windows 10 setup due to the fact that it cannot connect to my router.

    Upon turning on my PC, a page comes up that tells me to connect to a network "to finish setting up this device". I click on my network, and after a minute of trying it says "We can't connect to the Internet right now. Please try again." Well I did try again. Again and again. Same results. Every other device in my house can connect to the WiFi, and I had no problem until I installed Windows 10.

    All other cases I've found online are from people who at least got out of Setup Mode...l don't even have access to my desktop.

    I'm in dire straits and I want my baby back so if anyone could help it would be seriously appreciated. <3

    If you're doing a clean installation of windows 10. You need to download all the drivers for every component parts that is inside your computer otherwise it CANNOT communicate with all the parts inside. Only way to get the drivers is with another computer that has networking capability for you to get online. And download all the drivers onto a flash drive. Then you plug that USB drive onto the computer that you did the windows 10 installation on and you extract the files of the driver and run it in administrative mode to avoid any complication during the installation. My advice is to installed the network driver first as your priority to get your networking going. Once you get that networking working, you should be able to get online and download the rest of the drivers.

    Thank you! I've downloaded the necessary drivers onto a flash drive. The only problem is I still can't bypass the Windows Setup in order to even access the flash drive through my laptop. Does anyone know how to bypass this?
    If I could post a picture of the screen to show you it would help me convey this, but I open to a blue screen that says "Welcome to Windows 10!" There is no clear way for me to access my desktop from this screen. Does anyone know how they could help me here?

    Edit: Nvm, a new button has popped up that says "Skip this step" and it appears to be moving forward now. I swear I've never seen that button there before, but then again I'm pretty spacey. Well thank you for your help! I will be sure to install the correct drivers now! =)
