I tried to update Windows 10 but I didn't have enough storage so it made me use a flash drive to complete the update. I restarted the computer when it was done, and now it's stuck on a "Please insert external storage media and press OK" error message. I press OK over and over again but nothing happens and the message doesn't go away. I can't get to the desktop. Anyone know how I can fix this?? It happened in the middle of a big project I've been working on =(. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

enter the bios, change the start up order to read the USB media before than the primary disk, save and restart.

Hi, you can repair the Windows by using the USB media or inserting a Windows installation disk. Also, was the installation really completed because I doubt it would ask for the Windows files if the Windows was fully installed at the first place.
