Computer Will Not Boot After Windows 10 Install


Im having trouble with my Windows 10 clean install. Once it installs it says it is resetting tocomplete installation, after it resets it will not load to the windows screen.It just loads BIOS and hangs with a prompt flashing on a black screen. I thenused DISKPART to clean the disks and tried a new install in MBR and again inGPT formats, still the same result. What am I doing wrong? Are the RAID drivescausing the problem? The machine was running fine before. I had a free upgradefrom 7 and did the process of upgrading to 10 first before the clean install toactivate the product. That went fine. I ran the hardware diagnostics from theBIOS and it failed the boot test with error code BIOHD3. Warning: No activepartitions.

The machine is a HP with a
