Hi all,

I recently had to wipe my SSD so I created a recovery partition on my other HD and reinstalled windows 10 on there. That worked fine; however, now I want to reinstall windows on my SSD but when booting from the recovery partition (with the windows 10 ISO on it) I get the following message:

'Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1: Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2: Choose your language settings, then click "next".
3. Click "Repair your computer".

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

Status: 0xc000000f

Info: A required device isn't connected or can't be accessed.'

I currently do not have a DVD player connected, and I don't want to make a clone because I want to wipe my other HD too.

Is there any way around this to get Windows 10 back on my SSD?

From some working system, you create a USB install for this.
Boot from that and install on the SSD.


You can't 'recover' from what exists on the HDD.
