    I had made a copy of ISO file of Windows Media file on a USB drive.
    In my new MSDOS laptop, I inserted my pen drive and started installing Windows.
    After installation black screen appeared and it again asked me to install windows.
    I tried to install it again but while choosing the partition it showed me an error:
    There was an error installing Windows
    I pressed the power button and the laptop switched off.
    I turned it on but the same error persisted while installing the Windows.
    Somewhere I found the option for System Recovery and clicked on it.
    It showed an error something like:
    The installation media could not be found in the external disk.
    Contact your system administrator for a media file.
    Error code:0xc000000f
    The error was quite longer than this but the main points were these.
    And every time I am turning on my pc I find the above-given error.

    I think I had done some mistake choosing the partition while installing the Windows 10 for the first time.
    There were two partitions 1 and 2 and an unallocated space for more than 950GB.
    I chose the unallocated space.

    HP 15-BW096AU 2017 15.6-inch Laptop (A6-7310/4GB/1TB/DOS/Integrated Graphics)

    Help me, please

    Your reply lacks detail
    I post
    because you said
    but you make no comment as to if you had indeed downloaded the ISO and merely copied it to a usb pen

    Windows cannot be installed by booting from a flash drive or dvd by merely copying the ISO

    There is according to your post a possibility that you are leaving the flash drive in the computer after windows has installed
    If you have configured the boot device as the flash pen, in BIOS/UEFI firmware rather than merely a one time boot to the USB, and then windows having installed you leaved the flash pen in the drive it boots from it and again asks
    On a computer that has FreeDos installed you boot from the install media and choose the option delete for the drive
