    0x80004005-0x1000A The installation failed in the DOWNLEVEL phase with an error during PREPARE_FIRST_BOOT operation.

    I have tried everything. The latest error is

    0x80004005-0x1000A The installation failed in the DOWNLEVEL phase with an error during PREPARE_FIRST_BOOT operation.

    I have dropboxs links.

    Windows update log; Dropbox - File Deleted

    setupact.log link; Dropbox - File Deleted

    setuperr.log link; Dropbox - File Deleted

    I don't understand these but I have been having this problem for a long time now and could never install 1809 so I thought 1903 would maybe work but it don't.

    I tried Windows 10 ISO and that didn't work. I did the Update Assistant 3 times and that got me the closest. I have deleted all the files they said to delete and retry and nothing works. I have been working on this for months.

    Also I am obviously not a computer tech so I need the steps explained.
