I have brought a new pc that had it hard drive completely wiped so I downloaded windows 10 on to it then I run through setup but it keeps coming up with OBE errors like OOBEREGION, OOBKEYBOARD,OOBNETWORKLOSSSAVERVERSIONV2, OOBELOCAL, OOBESETTINGSMULTIPAGE.

Any help would be amazing.

  • How exactly are you trying to install Windows? That shouldn't been happening - and it doesn't happen - in a proper installation done from a properly made installation USB.

You can try the following: (source)

(change "newusername" and "newuserpassword" in the commands below to your own)

[when OOBE error occurs], bring up the cmd prompt with Shift+F10 and type:

net user administrator /active:yes
net user /add newusername newuserpassword
net localgroup administrators newusername /add
cd %windir%\system32\oobe

[wait 15 or 20 mins to see if it continues; power off using switch if not] [if it continues and gets you to the Administrator desktop] log off, and log into the "newusername"

run lusrmgr.msc and disable the Administrator account;

[delete any other user account(s) (i.e. not called newusername) that were created or orphaned during the failed setup due to the oobe errors].

  • This is a brand new pc with no operating system so I cannot acess the admin settings.

  • OOBE is windows setup "out of box experience."
