Hi, I recently have needed to reinstall windows 10. I tried using the media creation tool from Microsoft. Doing this led to me getting stuck in an automatic repair loop which eventually I managed to get out of. I still now need to reinstall windows but I don't want to use this method again in case the same problem occurs. What other ways can I reinstall windows without data loss that are unlikely to result in me having the same automatic repair loop problem?
Thanks

To guarantee no data loss? Removing the drive with the data, getting an entirely new or currently unused different storage drive, and installing Windows on that.

A Windows install should never put any data at risk if the PC is being maintained properly by its owner. A backup regimen is a basic part of responsible PC ownership.
