Not so good clue
I cant download ccleaner when i cant ACCESS the computer.
If it's dead then we fix that first.
The 100% drive would be unplugged since that can lead to this and other errors. Worst case is a fresh OS install along with sorting out the hardware.
I still find you gave good clues but when it comes to hardware we have to unplug what we can (the "make it smaller" approach) and swap parts that we suspect.
I'd like to avoid an OS reload.
Yeah i have unplugged the 100% HDD as written, but do you mean that i can unplugg all not important stuff like pc mouse headset usb bluetooth and stuff like that or?
Ive also tried installing windows both trough usb and original win 8 cd/dvd. but when i try to boot with them my pc desices to just skip and try to start (goes to windows loading screen and repeats the driver pnp watchdog error/stop.
Yes ill check into that in a sec Just wait
I think i enabled it a while ago yeah, hold on a little bit
Shell EFI startup?
Now i came to a black screen, many numbers and characters, yellow and white. It says "press esc in 1 secound to skip strtup.nsh, any other key to continue"
Ok so fast boot was not enabled
There was a option to use window 8 futuring i enabled it thinking id go back to win 8, but it enabled fast boot, so i disabled win 8 futuring. so im back at the 10min win 10 loading screen and the bluescreen with the DRIVER PNP WATCHDOG stopcode...):
Funny how that last link I mentioned
Has someone writing about the W8 feature and troubles.
So fast boot is not enabled so unless there is hardware issues, I install a blank HDD and boot up my W10 USB install and repair stick. I do encounter folk that bring in their sticks and DVDs that won't boot on shop PCs so we always have our own.
At the very least we should be able to boot W8 or W10 install media if we unplug all drives.
BE SURE that nothing extra is plugged in. I've tracked boot failures to innocuous(?) items like printers.
Mouse, keyboard, mice and Hdmi is connected.
Sould i unplug the other hdd's and the one ssd that i dont want my os on? sould i unplug the graphics card and use the motherboard motherboard as hdmi output? sould i unplug one of my ramsticks? (i have two)
Name of the program
EFI Shell version 2.31 [4.654] it says that at the top of this cmd looking program
That's on almost all UEFI BIOS PCs now.
The version numbers usually change but yup, it's on 99.99% of new PC systems.
READ THIS NOW.
It appears you ran the reset to factory "restore my pc, back to factory settings."
This is where I see a lot of PCs blow up. I have to get out my good W10 install and repair stick and mind you this is after we talk about if there are any files to be saved.
Most of the time we slip in a blank HDD then pull out all the owner's drives so they will be untouched by a clean install.
The blank HDD goes on the lowest numbered SATA port and the BIOS defaults taken. Now we boot and install W10. No need to hunt for CDKEYs if the machine has run W10 before.

What do you mean?
So yes my pc has both runned win10 and 8, but it was updated to win 10.
do you mean i should swap disk SATA ports?
It means the factory restore is most likely bum. This is why I start as if the machine is to be reinstalled from scratch. Some folk can't use the Windows tools to blank out the drive so we just do that elsewhere the drive goes on the lowest number SATA port to avoid a long discussion later. I won't type in all that there is to know about that.
Alright how do i find the Lowest SATA port?
The MSI Z87-G43's manual.
Let's find it. On google I'm typing MSI Z87-G43 manual. First hit looks OK. Then I see Manual, click that, download it. It's a Zip file but inside is the PDF.
Page 1-22 of the English manual.
i have the manual on book i am pretty sure
I can't assure you
That it's on page 1-22 so I shared how I located it online.
FOUND THIS ON WINDOWS ANSWERS.
"Anytime you have a Driver PnP watchdog error it is related to a hardware issue, or a driver issue. If you are unable to boot into windows when this happens, this is generally an issue with Windows not being able to properly identify the device. Your first stop should be in BIOS. Reset bios to default settings, and run a diagnostic and make sure that the motherboard can see all of your installed components. If it can't, then ask some questions. Is my HDD really old? If so then you might try checking the SATA controller settings. If they are set to AHCI, try setting them to IDE. if that doesn't correct your issue, then the next question is what can we remove to simplify the problem. You will want to remove any hardware that isn't crucial to the machine starting up. Video cards, DVD drives, extra HDD, wifi card, or anything else installed in a auxiliary slot. Then try and start up the system again. If this time, it starts to boot back up, you can add one part at a time until you find the one that is causing the problem. Try replacing updating the driver, if you can load into windows, or you may have to replace that part. If after removing everything it still doesn't boot back up, then you may have a faulty disk drive or a faulty motherboard"
IM GOING TO TRY THIS WHEN I GET HOME.

It did not work, now im stuck in a windows installing loop, when i boot with the usb that has media win 10 it goes in to it yes but after i have selected the disk and the installation is done, it just reboots and it goes right back to selecting languages and countries... what to do now...
This sounds like.
This says to me the HDD has issue or is missing. Since we are doing a clean install I'd go get DBAN to do a single wipe or the attached HDD. Again, I never heard if you made sure the HDD (or SSD) was on the lowest numbered SATA port. Also, we want BIOS defaults.
ANY DRIVE YOU DON'T WANT WIPED MUST NOT BE ATTACHED DURING THIS STEP.
I'll do the lowest SATA outlet tomorrow
I have used DBAN wiped all of my disks exept for the 100% one, but its out of my pc so it does not matter. but that didnt work either. tomorrow ill try the SATA stuff, and ill switch out my motherboard to my old one with another cpu in it and si if the same problem happens. if it does, i really dont know what to do, if it works to install win 10 on the disks ill try to swap the "new" motherboard again.
