How to fix this error

I have a notebook with Windows 8.1. I have formatted a partition and I am trying to install Windows 10 by booting from a DVD with Windows 10 ISO image. Before I had tried to install windows 10 from a usb. Unfortunately an error appears after formatting (error code: 0x0000098, file:/windows/System32/drivers/UsbHub3.sys) and does not allow me to access any recovery tool to configure properly.

Why not

wipe out the new partition and start over anew ?

I tried but

That is already done, and I had to do it because when installing windows this error appears: "You cannot install windows on this disk. The selected disk has an MBR partition table. On EFI windows systems can only be installed on GPT disks".
Unfortunately now it shows me that screen and it doesn't give me any option to fix the error since all the options direct me to the same screen.

This sounds like

You formatted the HDD prior to install. That does result in the errors above. Try again but with a BLANK unformatted HDD. I've used DBAN to clean off such drives.

Answer
Use different computer

download all the driver files for your computer model or motherboard to a flashdrive. That way after you install the windows 10, you can then update the drivers and the USB should work. If you have a LIVE DVD of some Linux distro, but no other computer, then can boot to that and access the internet to download the files needed.
