I am trying to reinstall windows 10 pro on my Asus R558U Laptop and am facing trouble. I have done the following:
- I created a win10 bootable USB using windows media creation tool.
- Then I restarted my laptop and entered the boot menu and chose the USB option. Then I followed this video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=q9b6VqwA7vk
- I followed the wizard instructions and clicked I dont have a product key.
- Then I deleted all my partitions.
I now have 931.5GB of unallocated space on drive 0. The wizard gets stuck
when I create a new partition (of any size)
when I just click Next after selecting the unallocated space
When it was stuck, I turned off my laptop and restarted it, I found this, a partition of size 529.0MB is created and remaining is unallocated space. Now when I select this unallocated space or try to create a new partition, the wizard gets stuck again.
I also tried to create a new partition of 200GB and left the wizard on stuck mode overnight. In the morning I saw that there were two partitions of 529mb and 14mb and rest unallocated space. Amy further steps got the wizard stuck again.
I also tried using DISKPART tool. Everything works well till I attempt to clean the disk 0. check out Diskpart screen the error message is: 'DiskPart has encountered an error: The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error'
After this when I try to list drives, the entire of 931GB is missing. Although, it is visible again after a restart.
System Restore also doesn't work as I dont have any partitions.
I have also tried to create a bootable USB by downloading from Microsoft mirror and using Rufus, only to see similar results.
Kindly advise what I can do.
