Hi, I have a problem. Recently my desktop pc was broken so I purchased a new laptop pc ( notebook ) HP255 G5 W4M80EA HD 500GB 4GB 15,6" FREEDOS to save money ( I have Windows 10 pro ISO and valid product key ). I am not an expert at all but I tried to study through various video on YouTube in order to learn how to install Windows OS on this FREEDOS pc and I could succeed in it upto 95% but I made one mistake at the final stage and it brought me to panic. This way I putted myself in a situation I cannot understand anymore with my very superficial knowledge and continued to made further mistakes and now my pc shows the following :
Recovery Your PC/Device needs to be repaired. The application or operating system couldn't be loaded because required file is missing or contains errors.
I repeat. I am not an expert at all in this field so I would be very grateful if somebody could help me explaining to me in as easy words/phrases as possible about how to proceed to resolve this problem.
Many thanks !!

This should not be so hard. You have a lot of verbiage here and I have to admit I did not read every word, but am I understanding you have only used one USB drive in all your install attempts? Is it maybe possible you have a corrupt install image or a bad usb drive? I bet at this point you are thinking that $150 you saved cost you way more. Seriously the Windows 10 install is designed to be doable by someone with modest tech skills and if it is not working the problem is something other than your technique.
