    Hi there


    I have an ASUS Notebook T100TA with Windows 10 x86. I was having issues with the audio & mic not working & decided to reset my PC doing a complete reinstall via the reset menu install from my PC.


    The computer appeared to complete the "preparing" and "restoring" steps, and then after rebooting the screen flashed and the computer switched itself off. It did this over and over again, so I decided to try and reinstall the OS via a flash drive using the Media Creation tool. I managed to get into the BIOS and changed the boot sequence to boot up the USB flash drive containing the OS. The USB started flashing, I got a circle on the screen and the word "preparing", and then the error message "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error", and instructions to restart the computer and run the installation again. I clicked OK, the computer restarted, but again the same error message appeared.


    The computer doesn't seem to be booting correctly from the USB drive... perhaps it is searching for the installation files created during the reset process and has got stuck in a loop.


    Is there any way to fix this? I need to bypass this error message and try to install Windows from the USB flash drive.


    Thanks

    :)

    Error: "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed" on Windows 10

    error message comes up saying : the computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.

    Needless to say, does not work and I am traveling so have no utilities or re-install materials. Suggestions?
