Hello @jessknight

 

Welcome to the HP Support forum.

 

I will try to help you fix this.

 

It got stuck at certain % because of software issue (e.g. the recovery drive/software there is corrupted and failed to complete the process) OR because of some hardware issue (very unusual but possible issue with the disk drive).

 

In order to provide with you concrete steps how to fix the issue and what would be the best solution, please, let me know:

- your HP product model and product number >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00033108

- did the PC originally come with Windows 10 or it was with Win 8 and was later upgraded to Win 10 ?  If it was upgraded to 10, do you prefer Windows 10 or you prefer your previous Windows version ?

 

 

Please, perform some basic hardware checks

 

1. Please, shutdown the computer using the power button

2. Power it on.

2.1 As soon as you press the power-on button, immediately begin hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap).

This should open a HP Startup Menu which may look similar to this one

 

3. Choose F2 to open System Diagnostics. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform System Test >> Quick test.

This will check major hardware componets for issue (do it just in case) . Here is more info >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259#AbT1

 

If there are no system checks/no quick tests, perform HDD and RAM check.

 

 

Looking forward to your reply
