Windows 10 is gradually becoming a huge problem in our tech space. Either every day, one or two persons must complain of the same issue and it seems to me that they are little or no solutions to what people are complaining about. I mean, sometimes ago, I got a new Notebook which after using it for 5 days, the Start Menu button wasn’t working anymore. I was deeply furious and wanted to place a return order on my merchant website.
But hey, I decided to hold on since I contacted HP and they told me I shouldn’t worry there’s no problem with my PC only the Operating system that needed to be fixed.
Quickly, I contacted Microsoft to fix this for me, behold, they told me I could virtually fix this alone at my end. I was skeptical about what to say since I wasn’t computer savvy then. My long search for solution got me thinking if there was any customers service at all at Microsoft that could fix issues genuinely in a timely manner.
Just as I expected, I had a live chat with Anthony who was very supportive until I achieved a result at the end. Anthony who I gave remote access to my PC and he did some settings which never worked. I was stuck and over 3 days, I could not use my laptop which got me angry and decided to seek a professional.
Installing Windows 10 Stuck at 64% How I fixed it 100%
On a good day, I tried to install windows 10 on my laptop to replace the former installation downtime I got. While trying to install windows, I found out that my system went off which caused a big crash on my hard drive. I had to do a full clean install of Windows 10.
To my greatest surprise, my PC has been left on counting to 64% and It has been like this for 2 days so it got me worried, I never wanted to continue in the long wait. I got to read an article on a blog where I was made to understand by a fellow who faced the same issue that she also faced this and the 64% was over after 3 days plus.
I was profoundly worried while I look for other alternatives to fixing my Laptop. So I got to see this very topic created over and over again on Microsoft Forum and no one could get a solution as all reports were negative. I quickly contacted someone and explained to them what I was facing.
Good news, he gave me steps to which worked for me and am going to be sharing these same steps right here for everyone. So you could get your system back.
But I’m afraid, you may lose all your data and files at the moment because your Hard Drive has been affected already by your previous actions to reinstall windows. In most cases, it may be that you are only trying to reset windows and got this challenge level. No Problem.
Step 1: Create an Installation Media from Microsoft Windows Site
This option is very important. You need to create an installation media using windows 10 media tool from Microsoft website or Click here to start downloading. Use either a flash drive or DVD to create the ISOs file. This step might take up to 30 minutes or more depending on your internet speed and processor. However, you can continue using your PC for another purpose while it completes settings.
Note: Any device you are using to create Recovery Media must be empty else, any file inside will automatically be deleted. Therefore, format the drive before using it.
Step 2: Restart your PC and Boot from CD/DVD/USD
It is mostly different depending on the manufacturer’s PC you are using. In my own case, am using Notebook and I used F10 to boot BIOS then boot from a Flash Drive.
Step 3: Select the Language, keyboard type and time and hit next to continue the next step
Step 4: Select Your Architecture and Windows Edition.
In my own case, I selected English and then Windows 10 Home then 64-bit Operating system

Step 6: Select a partition in your Hard Drive and Click Next on the next windows, click Install Now
Wait for windows to complete installation which might take up to 10-30 minutes depending on your PC processor. After installation, download Drivers Pack from the respective store and update drivers so your functionalities will start working.
