    Auto repair loop and unable to reinstall


    I have a windows 10 tower that I left on over night, i sometimes do that, and the next morning I woke up to it giving me the auto repair loop. Nothing in the menu under "troubleshoot". I put all the DVD files onto flash drives (no DVD drive on my computer) and then gave up and tried to reinstall windows.

    When I try to do so I get this message: "The computer started using the windows installation media. Remove the installation media and restart your computer so that windows starts normally. Then, insert the installation media and restart the upgrade."

    I have no idea what this means apparently. I did as it said, to remove the media. Whenever I try to restart in any way I get the warning "closing this window will cancel the installation" or I just shut it down by going through the "repair" option and by the hard shut down (holding the power button). None of these options allow me to reinstall.

    Someone please save my sanity.

    Ps. I took IT in collage and I get the lingo or can look up what I don't know, and understand it. Throw your best at me. I'm ready to torch my hard drive.

    :)

  2. Stuck in auto repair loop

    Hi Alex,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    If the screen is stuck for a long time on auto repair, I suggest you to restart the computer using power button and check. If the issue still persist, I suggest you to check if you are able to boot the computer into Safe Mode environment and check.

    To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:


    • Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.

    • Select an option to “Safe mode with networking” using the arrow keys on the keyboard when the Windows Advanced Options menu
      appears, and then press ENTER.


    Hope this information is helpful. Do let us know if your issue is resolved. For any further query, feel free to contact us.

    Thank you.
