So im having some trouble with startup. Once I startup my computer, the console message on normal startup comes up with different options for a few seconds then leaves. Normaly the windows logo pops up right after it and loads everything and then the login screen appears. However, the windows logo never pops up as well as the login screen. Its just a black screen as if windows isnt even on my computer.
I will say beforehand i was trying to reset my computer and just keep all the core files (mainly cause i was sick of all the clutter) each time i tried it would get to the start of the reset, go to about 20% then say that it was unable to complete the restart process. Did i somehow delete windows and only windows from my computer?

Not much experience with reset, I normally would do a clean install. That is the best way to ensure there are no remnants remaining. Just boot with the USB stick or DVD and select custom install.
