Windows 10
Windows installation
So recently I was trying to reset my Windows 8.1 pro PC.I had USB with Windows 8.1 in my pc if it needed any of the filles.While it was resetting my PC at like 60 % it stopped the reset and I was left with a half reset PC with a non functioning windows 8.1.After that I got Windows 10 on a USB and after wipeing clean my SSD and my HDD I tried installing Windows 10.While Windows is installing I get windows cannot install required files error code 0x80070015.I have tried downloading Windows again and used different USB prots on my pc.I have tried removeing ram as well if there was a problem with that.I tryed installing Windows on both my ssd and HDD but both got the same error.Used CMD to clean my drives as well before install.I have reset my mother board bios as well.

Software/Hardware used:
I have 2 sticks of 8 gb ram and a 128gb SSD and 1 tb hdd

    Before installing, have you fully formatted (not quick) your HDD/ SSD ? What happened before resetting Windows 8.1 ?

    It could be a number of things. Is this a full version of Win 10 or the special anniversary edition? Some of the early versions had expiration dates when they came out. This site explains it and has a few suggestions to fix the problem.

    This error code generally caused for Windows Defender error. However, sometimes it can be caused in one way or another by misconfigured system files of Windows OS. To overcome this issue, you may check all of these possibilities.
