    Removing Boot prompts/Unwanted actions


    After some changes to HDD partitions I'm getting two prompts on bootup. (See Images)

    I eventually removed the first one by following these instructions

    Use the search option in the taskbar and enter secpol. msc then click on it in the search results. Under Local Policies, Security Options navigate to User Account Control Admin Approval Mode for the Built-in Administrator account click on it to open the properties. Set the policy to Enabled and click Apply.

    Now I get Edge opening when I bootup. However the machine is not on the internet and what happens is the Router (Fritzbox) opens saying access is (correctly) blocked.
    I can't see what address it's trying to reach. Can I find out and/or stop it trying to connect. I can't see anything in Startup that would be causing this, and it didn't so it until some changes to HDD yesterday.

    :)

    Installation media boots to command prompt

    I've just booted from known working install media to see exactly what it does when booting. The sequence of events is...

    1. Windows logo on a black screen
    2. circling dots appear beneath the logo
    3. light blue 'Please wait' screen with circling dots
    4. a command prompt window (very briefly)
    5. the initial Setup page appears

    Do you see steps 1-3? If so, it appears you have stopped at step 4, suggesting that something on the disc cannot be read.

    Does the disc boot properly in another machine? If so, try cleaning the laptop's drive lens then try booting from the disc again.

    If not, make new install media with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, either as a bootable USB, on an ISO that you can burn to another disc. At Step 8 in Option One of this tutorial you can choose between making a USB or an ISO.

    command prompt will not open in safe mode with command prompt

    Would I just follow the same steps within safe mode after hooking up to the other system?
