Hey guys there was a topic I read before i signed in about a windows 10 repair loop and I have a similar problem... Avast screwed me over when I tried to uninstall it and corrupted my computer to the point that I have to reinstall Windows 10 to fix it... Problem is it stops before entering the last phase. I tried fixing the problem through access to command prompt from the windows 10 installation media (USB) but the problems reappear after every reboot... Can anyone help me please?

Hi Renegeek,

 

Because you have failed installation issue then we need to troubleshot this issue, am i correct to assume that you are asking for assistance for Windows installation problem?

Did the notebook originally ship with Windows 8.1 and has since been upgraded to Windows 10.

 

I am... I think the errors are part of the cause 

 

 

What errors and what exactly is happening.

You cannot execute Dism command because there is no operating system installed there was one but it is deleted when try to clean install Windows 10.

 

Do you have a Windows 10 installation DVD or USB flash drive?

 

If you have one then how did you obtain the Windows installation media?

8.1 info acknowledged, if all else fails you may be able to use the recovery partition to reinstall 8.1 then do a clean install of Windows 10.

 

You are using a USB device for the install of Windows 10, have you disabled secure boot and from where did you get the Windows 10 media that is on the USB device.

No worries Emre, rather than me getting in the way I can leave you with it.

 

I'll try to reinstall now with secure boot 

 

 

You did mean secure boot disabled didn`t you Renegeek.
