    I was doing a reset on my pc and half-way through I got a black screen. So I went into bios and tried to find a way to wipe the drives thinking it would start back to factory setting and I had my usb with windows 10 on it, to boot windows up when all else failed. So I went online and found a command prompt where you type in "diskpart" or "view all disk" and I cleaned all the disk I had which was 0,1,2. While my usb was in the pc. So when I reset my pc to boot up windows through my usb it just says "reboot and select proper boot device or insert proper boot media in selected boot device and press key" and it says this when ever I try to boot it up anything. I'm kinda new to this and I just need help

    Was your bootable Windows USB flash drive plugged in when you cleaned drives 1, 2, and 3? If so, and it was one of those three drives, you have wiped it as well ... which means it can no longer boot because there is nothing on it.

    Yep. It sounds like you wiped out both your computer's hard drive and USB thumb drive. :(

    Assuming your computer is a factory-brand one and not a self-built one, what is its brand name and model name and model number and serial number?

    Can you try the Usb stick on another computer ? That will show if it's empty or not.
    If it's not empty you may need to change the Bios setting to make it the first drive in the boot order before it will work.
    Also you can download Windows 10 if you need to and make a new Usb stick.

    Thanks for the reply, I'm not concerned about saving the data, I wiped the usb and put windows 10 back on it and made it the first to boot, the message about "rebooting and selecting proper boot device still pops up" and looking back on it I'm not 100% sure if the diskclean had something to do with it

    I'm guessing you have an ASUS Essentio CM6730 desktop which has an Intel Core i3-2120 processor and which originally came with Windows 7 or Windows 8 64-bit.

    You will probably have better success doing a clean install of Windows 10 64-bit in it if you create and use a bootable DVD.
    You can obtain what you need from HERE.
