    I was fresh reinstalling my windows 10 onto my HDD as I encountered an error preventing me from booting the computer up, in the end I found it was my new GPU causing this error (a dead GPU?). So now my computer shows an error message: "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an error during installation of windows". I looked this error up and it told me to press shift f10 to open a console and to type regedit in and to find status on local machine, changing the number from 1 to 3. I did this supposed fix, however, now my computer is in a infinite restart loop, displaying the windows 10 installation at 64% and then restarting again...?

    Please help me solve this issue

    Why not just start over? Boot with your win10 install usb or dvd. Delete ALL partitions on the disk and have setup create partitions and install. Done.

    Before doing the above, go to the support site for your hardware ie motherboard, video card, etc. Download whatever drivers you need. In addition, download whatever utilities you normally use ie ccleaner, irfanview, your AV software, etc, etc. Place all of these on a flash drive or usb type external. Having all of the drivers, utilities, etc in one place makes an install go much easier.

    Do understand that deleting partitions on the disk will destroy ALL data. If there is something you need on the disk, make sure you make a backup.

    A clean install of Windows 10 may stall from time to time, so you need to be patient and let it do its thing.

    Make sure no optional devices(printer, external hard drive, etc.) are connected to the computer during the install process.
