Hello everyone,

I recently went and reset windows 10 on my laptop; however, after doing so I am met with two errors:

  1. something about unattended parcel and when I click ok it leads to this second error
  2. windows could not finish install restart to finish
My laptop was plugged in the whole time and was in no way interrupted during the reset. I've seen solutions that tell me to press shift + f10 but it doesn't work for me.

If I had known I wouldn't have reset. My laptop was running slow and wanted it to perform better for school work/ dad usage.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I would be inclined to do a completely clean reinstall, presuming you were doing either a Reset with "keep nothing" or have a backup of your user data files you can restore.

Doing a completely clean reinstall (options a & b are downloadable PDF files):
a) Completely Clean Win10 (Re)install Using MCT to Download Win10 ISO File
b) Completely Clean Win10 (Re)install Using MCT to Create a Bootable USB Drive
c) How to do a CLEAN Installation of Windows 10 (Tom’s Hardware Forums, with screen shots)

I would do a clean install as suggested but if there is anything on laptop you want to rescue, try this:

boot from installer
on screen after languages, choose repair this pc, not install.
choose troubleshoot
choose advanced
choose command prompt
type notepad and press enter
in notepad, select file>open
Use file explorer to copy any files you need to save to USB or hdd
