    tried to factory reset, failed half way through and now i can't boot into windows

    A few days ago i decided to factory reset my asus t100ta it got about half way through the reset and then it failed for an unknown reason.

    Now everytime i boot windows automatic repair tries to fix the problem and i get this error message "Automatic repair couldn't repair your PC" with the path to this log file: C:\Windows\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt

    I don't really care about getting into windows i just want to either put linux or some form of android on it but with the windows 8 secure boot i don't know how and i can't get into windows to disable the secure boot.

    So really my question is: What should i do now? is there anyway i can disable the secure boot without getting into windows or will i need to find a way to get back into windows first?

    Welcome to the forum

    AFAIK - and I don't own a Windows machine - you can turn on the ability to boot from external media from within the BIOS. From that point you should be able to wipe the drive an install anything you like.

    PLEASE Search for existing threads before posting a new one. Thanks.

    Your opinion matters. But should you disagree - please try not to be disagreeable

    Hi, allow us to apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused and we will be happy to assist you. You are able to Disable secure boot by doing the following:

    1. Enter the BIOS setup menu by pressing and holding F2 key when powering on.
    2. Switch to "Boot" and set “Launch CSM” to Enabled.
    3. Switch to "Security" and set "Secure Boot Control" to Disabled.
    4. Press F10 to save and exit.
    5. Press and hold ESC key to lunch boot menu when the notebook restarts.
