Currently i dont have any OS installed in my laptop and when i am trying to install windows in it then it is showing the following error just after finishing Installing Updates option:

Windows could not prepare the computer to boot into the next phase of installation. To install windows, restart the installation

Even after trying 5-10 times reinstalling with formatting my C drive i couldn't install it. I tried all both Windows 8.1 and 10 during last week but both have same error.

I install by making my pen drive bootable

Here is how my error looks like:

Error During Windows Installation

  • I tried to install Windows 10 and got this error. It seems that in Windows 10 installation this error appears, if it does, at the start of the process, just after the target storage device is selected. Much better than waiting until the end of installation. – mightyiam Oct 13 '16 at 17:36

Disconnect/disable all storage devices that are EFI bootable. That did it for me.
