Windows 10 won't Factory Reset

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I tried factory resetting my PC last night since I'm replacing my AMD gpu to an NVIDIA gpu. It then gave me the error of "There was a problem resetting your PC". Ive watched couple of youtube videos, did some research also and none of them worked. I was thinking of removing any partitions on my drive and boot off a USB for a fresh install of Windows 10. If anyone knows how to fix this issue without me having to do a fresh install of a USB, please help me out! Thank you very much!

You don't need to reinstall windows for that, you can just use DDU.

 

If you NEED to reinstall windows, use a bootable installer

Oh well I wanted to factory reset anyways so its fresh again. I might just go with the bootable installed (USB) which would make it easier for me instead of me wasting my time trying to resolve it

Quick question, would I need to get my activation key from my current Windows 10 for later or do I just select I dont have a product key during the installation process and Windows Servers would recognize the hardware and activate itself

So I just click "I dont have a product key" during the Installation process right? @NinJake

As long as you don't try and say you have a pro/enterprise version when you only have the home variant.
