So today i started my pc and i saw a error code saying 0xc0000098. So i tried to reinstall the windows by making a bootable usb. After doing so i installed windows 10 again but when the installation is complete and it proceeds to restart it comes back to 0xc0000098. Its getting annoying as hell.send help

Likely meaning of the error 0xc0000098 is:
The volume for a file has been externally altered such that the opened file is no longer valid.
What program did you use to make bootable USB and from which site did you download windows?

Surely you have a friend or someone who has Windows, ask him to let you download ISO file.
You can then create bootable USB in linux as well.

Otherwise you might end up installing Windows with a backdoor, which is btw. one of the main reasons why Microsoft shares this download link.

Because you are installing fake Windows.
I'm sorry but we don't assist with such issues.

I have seen issues where people create the USB stick from a non-windows machine, so it's possible that the issue is due to that. Does linux have Rufus? If so, that may help.

I had another look at this and it seems to be an issue with the boot record.

What machine do you have? Make/Model/Serial. I think we can get this fixed by a couple of ways.

Zeb, we prefer not to accuse people of such without some evidence of same or admission on their part. It's best to give users the benefit of the doubt unless and until proven otherwise. Thanks for understanding. :)
