Windows 10 not booting after factory reset free. Windows 10 basics: how to reset your system
Posted 04 April – PM. My wife’s laptop was in dire need of a fresh reset, so she backed up her files, went into recovery options, and reset the PC back to it’s original settings. You’ll need to use recovery tools. I booted from USB and got it to load, but neither option to install or repair worked. A required drive partition is missing.
I don’t care about the data, as it was already backed up, but I’ afraid of not being able to do a fresh install of Windows without a recovery disc or installation disc. It was running a x64 version of Windows 10 and it came with Windows 8 pre-installed from the factory. If any other information is needed, please let me know. Turn on your computer, when Windows starts to load click the power button to shut it off.
Do this twice and it should boot into the advanced options menu. From there from there you should get an option to perform a System Restore to an earlier Restore Point. If that doesn’t work you can try a system repair. If that also fails please follow the guidelines for posting here that are included in the stickies. This is the link. Posted 06 April – PM. I copied the pci. I then tried copying and running the Sysnative App, but I get a message “The subsystem needed to support the image type is not present.
Any input as to which ones I could run? Save yourself a lot of headaches and do a clean install using the below guide. Because the computer was pre-installed with Windows 8 you definitely have a GPT disk. I would also zero out the drive by substituting clean all for clean. It is finished when you see the diskpart command prompt again. Edit: Because Windows 10 was already activated then it will activate automatically once online. If this computer was upgraded to Windows 10 from a different OS then you should definitely do the clean install vs the reset.
Edit Edit: Your partition structure is a mess. Do a clean install. When you get to the Upgrade or Customize window select Custom then next. Windows will automatically partition and format your drive. Posted 08 April – PM. Thank you so much John!

Please log in to reply. Posted 04 April – PM Hi everybody! Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks, Luis. Posted 04 April – PM Turn on your computer, when Windows starts to load click the power button to shut it off. Perhaps they were deleted when restoring to factory? System Repair also doesn’t work. I read the sticky you linked to already, but there isn’t anything I could run without being able to get into Windows, right?
At least that’s what I thought. I’m finally able to boot into a command prompt screen as no other boot options work.
