No operating system

I have an M17 3 that came with Windows 10 and just does not work right so I backed up the system as per Alien Respon then tried to redo system with the recovery portion of the drive. That failed miserable so thinking I had the back up I tried to use the recovery drive I had created  and same result. Now I have a very large paper-wait with no operating system do recover drive and it comes with no back up disc does not have a disk drive anyway any help out here

RE: No operating system

Do you have access to another computer? If so, you should be able to create a USB boot disk. Basically, you can download the media creation tool for windows 10 on another computer with a USB drive. I think it has to be at least 4gigs. You can then use that to install windows 10.

Here is the link:

RE: No operating system

Did you do a clean install by booting from the USB drive?

RE: No operating system

You may need to clean all of the partitions off of the drive in advanced setup. At the very least remove the  windows install partition.
