Hello Kortni, and welcome to Ten Forums.
That is definitely a lot longer that normal. However, it can depend on your system specs and how many issues your PC had before starting.
As long as you have hard drive activity, then it's usually best to let it sit until finished though.
I have Windows 10 (upgraded from 7) on my HP.. I tried to reset pc from settings and recovery, and even thru advanced startup, however when I hit reset, the laptop reboots and HP recovery manager starts up with the options of system restore, system recovery and minimized image recovery.. Why is that and what would you suggest? Thank you.
Hello Nanam, and welcome to Ten Forums.
If you like, you could create a custom reset recovery image using a Windows 10 ISO file. This way when you reset, it'll use it instead of the HP recovery image.
Oh ok thanks! And one more thing, if I do a true clean install from a USB, will it guarantee that my windows 10 will stay activated or is resetting pc a safer option?
You could use either option and still have Windows 10 activated afterwards.
I wanted to reset my Windows 10 and clean all the data from my hard-drive. I did everything for it as it is written above. However, when it reached 100%, the laptop restarted itself...and "blue screen". It restarted again, and " blue screen" again appeared. And it was several times, and every time all the time the same with "blue screen". I don't know what to do. Please, help me with it.
I updated from Windows 8 into 8.1. And that month I updated to 10. It is Ukrainian and licensed.
Hello Majkl, and welcome to Ten Forums.
Since you are wanting a full clean install, you might go ahead and do a clean install instead of reset if you like.

Back in March 16, the Windows team of MSFT revealed that Windows 10 won't use a separate "Recovery" image for "Refresh" and 'Reset" feature. Later MSDN page on "Reset" is updated with some more info about this new change.
Hi, I had found this on a different site and saved it as "fix update.bat" and I run it when I have problems. It seems to help without breaking anything so I thought I'd post it. I'm not entirely sure what it does though
