FIX: Windows installation encountered an unexpected error

Windows installation encountered an unexpected error is one of the common problems when you’re trying to install your Windows software. Here are some solutions to that error to make your life easier and finally enabling you to install your Windows successfully!

1. Make sure you meet the system requirements

System compatibility is the first most essential thing to install any Windows software. So make sure that your system is compatible with the Windows you want to install. I’ve mentioned below the system requirements for Windows 10:

  • CPU: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster processor or SoC
  • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
  • HDD Space: 16 GB for 32-bit OS 20 GB for 64-bit OS
  • GPU: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
  • Display: 800×600

2. Do check your Ram and HDD

  1. Before opening the command prompt, click on ‘Repair your computer.’
  2. Then go to Advanced options and click on the command prompt.
  3. After the command prompt opens, type in the following command:
    Diskpart [Press Enter] List Disk [Press Enter] Select Disk X [Press Enter] 
    Where X is your Hard Disk number
  4. Clean [Press Enter] Create Primary Partition [Press Enter] Active [Press Enter]
