I am helping a friend that had real problems with her Windows 10 Acer Laptop.

 

It had so many problems that  we decided to return to factory specifications.  The hard is only 23 gigs.

 

All went well and after the installation the computer is going back to 64% with installing features and

drivers showing in blue which I take to mean it is complete.  Configuring settings goes to 89% than it 

restarts.  It is a continuous loop back to the 64%.

 

I am not sure what else I can do.  I do know they say you need to be patient and wait.  I would sure appreciate any and all suggestions.

 

Thanks so much.

Is this a reset from within Windows or a complete clean reinstall using the Media Creation Tool? If a reset from withing Windows I would download the Media Creation Tool for Windows 10 and do a clean install.

23GB for a hard drive is really pushing it for Windows 10. As you can see 20GB is the absolute minimum for 64bit and 32bit is even 16GB.

 

Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit Hard disk space: 16 GB for 32-bit OS 20 GB for 64-bit OS

Processor:

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC

Is that single-core? So Windows 10 needs atleast 1Ghz single-core CPU and 2GB of RAM in order to run comfortably?

There are dual core processors at 1GHz

I wouldn't want to run Windows 10 on a 1GHz CPU.
