Greetings, friends!


I bought a new HDD as my old one got corrupted and fixing it would be unrealistic. I installed the windows 10 installation kit and burned it to my flashdrive. I plugged it in my PC and it brought me to the installation screen. I chose all my configurations and partitions and it was 'copying files' for some reason. Then it rebooted and showed a windows 10 logo for a solid 15 minutes and brought me back to the installation page. This has been bootlooping everytime I try to install the OS. 


Any help is much appreciated!

I would wonder about the system itself if you have 2 problem hard drives.

I'd suggest this procedure:  http://www.carrona.org/strpdown.html


When the system is in it's most stripped down state - then try to install W10.

If the OS still doesn't install, then post back for further suggestions.


Good luck!
