  1. Windows factory reset stuck


    Hi. I have decided to fully clear my system and reinstall windows using the refresh function. I started the process 20 hours ago, and it has been stuck at 32% for the last 10 hours. I have a quite powerful gaming laptop so it really surprised me how long it is taking.


    I have a 7th gen i7, GTX 1060, 16 GB RAM, a 256 GB SSD with the system on it and a 1tb HDD, which was nearly full.


    How long could this go on? Should I stop waiting? I'm aware of what to do if I should stop, so don't link other posts here please. Just some honest input if it is worth to wait more.


    Thank you!

    :)

    Windows 10 computer Factory reset stuck at 64%

    Hello,

    I have this exact issue at the moment. The factory reset is stuck at 64% and no, the answer given wasn't very helpful AT ALL. The screen is still stuck at 64%, what's the next step i should take? Should i manually force the PC to shut down and start it back
    up? Urgent, thanks.

    Windows 8.1 & windows 10 : fail to factory reset and stuck in restart


    Ztruker's post will get you to Win10, but if I understand the issue you wanted to fix a non-working Asus Win8.1 Factory Reset by upgrading to Win10.

    My question is what OS do you want on your system, Win8.1 or Win10.
    There might be a way to access the Asus recovery partition and do a reset from there - I think that can be done, but I would have to research the exact process to provide step-by-step instructions.

    If you want to get to Win10 - then I mis-interpreted your post.

    There seems to be an underlying issue on your system as far as the Asus Win8.1 Factory Reset issue is concerned.

    The question might be moot if you've already started the Win10 Clean install.
    Getting to Win10 is easy, getting back to Win8.1 after a Clean install requires a bit more work (windows.old and possibly the Asus Recovery partition are no longer available).
