Hey there.
I recently received a brand new RCA Cambio W101SA23T1, and it's not booting.

At first, it would turn on and say "Preparing automatic repair", then go to a screen where it gave me the error code 0xC0000185, and tell me "A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed."

It randomly went to "Diagnosing your PC" once, and I tried FIXMBR, however upon restart it would do the same thing as before and wouldn't let me back into advanced repair.

Now it won't even boot to UFEI or give me the "Preparing automatic repair" message.
It will turn on, tell me it's going to boot, then turn off.
Even if I press the button to open UFEI, it just shuts off.

Things I've already tried:
Making bootable x64 Win 10 USB (NTFS)
Making bootable x64 Win 10 USB (FAT32)
Making recovery USB from a working copy of Windows 10
Turning off safe boot
Turning on safe boot
Turning off fast boot
Turning on fast boot
Changing boot order
Using manual boot
Updating date through UFEI
FIXMBR

Currently I cannot access anything as it will not let me past the boot screen.
It will tell me "UFEI Version XXXX" then attempt to boot, but it just turns off. Trying to access UFEI results in the same thing happening.

"Brand new" - still in warranty - return it for repair.
Or make USB installation media, and try to reinstall / repair.
I already tried USB installation medias, both NTFS and FAT32, but it won't boot into them it seems. Tried changing the boot order and even removing the Windows boot loader from the list, but it wont work.

It's brand new in box, but I got it from a friend and the UFEI date is 2017.

Okay, it's booting into "Preparing automatic repair" again now, but it's still not booting into windows advanced repair or windows itself. I've already tried all the stuff I've said in the first post, but I haven't tried a x32 FAT32 USB yet, so I'll guess I'll try that. I'll upload a video of the problem I'm having soon.

Hello, I seemed to have managed to fix it.
Even though my friend said x64 the system is x32.
Using the Windows Media Creation Tool with the "Both" setting, I was able to boot into installation.
