Have an hp laptop I bought just over 2years ago hp 15-ay039wm. It came with windows 10 but I forgot the pwd. Always used the pin. So I did the factory restore, got to the end and says error an additional reboot may cause CTO panic. Tried 15 or more times same thing.

trying to install win7 now. Zapped all partitions, just stuck saying setup was unable to create a new system partition, or locate existing partition, tried install 20+times

This solved it. Using dos commands it worked perfectly.
