Windows 10: Recovery Message Popping up during Install
Recovery Message Popping up during Install
Greetings, I picked up an HP laptop for super cheap (free) because it wasn't working. I used partitioning program to format the hard drive and then attempted to install Windows 10. Now it's been 10 years or so since I've installed an OS from a *.iso. The logo pops up and then I get this message:
Your PC/Device needs to be repaired
This operating system uses the Physical Address Extension feature to support systems with more than 4GB of Ram. You'll need to use a PC with a compatible processor to run the operating system.
Error code: 0xc0000260
You'll need to use recovery tools. If you don't have any installation media, contact your PC administrator or PC/Device manufacturer."
There are two options at the bottom, press Enter to try again and Press F8 for Startup Settings. I've attempted both and neither do anything.
I'll be honest I have no idea what I'm doing but I'll fake it till I make it.
Thanks for any help!
That is STATUS_INVALID_HW_PROFILE; means 'The specified hardware profile configuration is invalid'.
It says to you .....
Make it sure that the processor of the laptop is at least of 1GHz; and it has at least 2 GB RAM.
If the hardware is actually compatible, then you can install Windows 10 on it.

I really tried to like Win 10, but the mail not syncing, the virtual keyboard resetting all the time, not having Cortana or offline map in my region, oh and of course all the various BSODs made me give up after a month. It has...
