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?

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.

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.
