    Pc resetting at 10% and freezes


    I had to do a pc reset on a diffrent pc. Everything went ok and pc reset froze at 10 % for ages.So i turned off pc and restarted it hoping this should be ok.Pc restarted ok but a box appears stating windows installation encountered an unexpected error click ok and restart pc to continue installation.I follow the step but all i see is at bottom of screen with Delete and F2 BIOS setup and same message appears.ie my pc gets into a loop.

    How do i get my pc working again..or is pc useless now ?

    Thank you

    Hi.
    You would need to get to a working computer and download either the Media Creation Tool for W10, or the current ISO from MSTechBench and reinstall Windows 10. You can use RUFUS to create a bootable flash drive, and then install W10 that way, if you can't use a disk.

    Hope that helps.

    Thank you for reply

    I will try your advice. I have downloaded Rufus.exe and Window 10 iso from MSTechBench.I assume i have to purchase a 4gb flash drive and put Windows 10 ISO on this and boot my other pc with this using advanced boot menu

    Yes, you'll need a flash drive (4GB will do it, but you might want a little larger one - they're cheap enough these days.) Following the instructions for Rufus will make it bootable. Yes, then boot to the flash drive, and install W10 fresh.

    Good luck!
