went through steps and is reseting pc
Email technician: Viet - Email Tech, Computer Support Specialist replied 1 year ago
Great. It takes about 30 to 60 minutes for the reset process to finish.- Once it is finished, go through the setup again. Then see if you can sign in your Microsoft account when prompted.- If it still does not work, then select the option "Skip this step", or something similar, and continue. If needed, please let me know the options there.Please let me know how it goes later; I will help further as needed. Thank you,
