    Insert your windows installation or recovery media to cont


    I am at the same spot with my laptop - it crashed so I tried refreshing the PC. However, it is showing me the screen "Insert your windows installation or recovery media to continue" but I don't have either of those. What should I do??? Thank you!!!
