A recovery process can fail if it is interrupted by pressing the keys, or turning off the power before the recovery is complete. The recovery process will pause for several minutes when it finishes reinstalling the operating system. If any action is performed, or if the power is turned off, the recovery may fail. If you touch any keys it will stop the process and crash the setup of the original software programs. The recovery process is not complete until a prompt is displayed to log on to the computer.
I didn't press any key nor turned the power off.
By permanent do you mean it can't be fixed at all?
AlienRespawn is not supported on Windows-10.
So, if you in-place upgraded from Windows-7 or Windows-8 ... you were suppose to just uninstall AlienRespawn and never use it again.
The exception might be a self-bootable AlienRespawn flash drive you created years ago (when you first got the machine). That might work if you didn't change the machine's HDD/SSD in any way over the years.
