I had some issues with my computer today so i did a system restore only it got stuck on shutting down for a good hour so i had to shut down manually, when it restarted it stalled on windows starting screen and i could not get past it. I've tried to use a usb with a copy of windows on it to reformat but yet again it loads the windows files then gets stuck on the windows starting screen. The usb is working as i formatted a friends computer with it last week.
When i disconnect the hdd and restart it loads the windows files from the usb and brings me to the setup page however when i reconnect the hdd while in setup it shows no hdd available to format and install on.
I beleive my issue is all down to the failed system restore creating a restore point however i have no clue how to fix it, ive also tried windows recovery with the same issue, any help would be appreciated.
