Pressing Enter or F8 return me to this same screen.  My computer does not have a CD drive, my biggest flash drive is 1 GB, but I do have a 1 TB external hard drive.  How can I resolve this issue?  Thanks

Please confirm your operating system is Windows 7.
Everything I found regarding your issue pertains to Windows 10 preview releases.

I too only found references to Windows 10 regarding this error.

 

Look in the BIOS and see if the date and time is accurate.  If it isn't, reset them and press F10 to save these changes and exit the BIOS.

The image that you posted is of Windows 8.1.  The error in Windows 7 is like the image below.

Do you have the installation disc for this operating system?
