So my Windows 10 laptop is fairly new and was in great condition but after a security update, it had asked me to reboot the system, not a big deal. But during the boot, the laptop just shut down (the battery was not dead, was plugged in) and now the laptop will not leave system recovery. I have downloaded a Windows image to a USB and tried to boot from it, and the laptop lets me go into BIOS and select the USB to boot from, but then I get a black screen. I have tried a portable CD/DVD drive with a Windows installer disk but nothing has worked. I need this laptop for work and schooling, so if you have any suggestions, I am all ears. I would have done a system restore, but previously the laptop had been a school computer and had system restore disabled. And startup repair does nothing but reboot and fail every time.
