You need to read the comment section of the shell script:

# *************** NOTE - EXECUTION POLICY*********************
# If you haven't set the execution policy, you may need to:
#---Run PowerShell
# *********************************************************

Edit: I know this because the same thing happened to me until I read the comment section

And I don't have a clue why you have the value that you do for hardware reserved - so I'll not speak to that. I await the wisdom of others. BTW, my hardware reserve is 0MB, but that is in a VM with no real hardware.
