    This is the solution suggested which is accepted as a solution

    I don't know how can I run it though.

    Since installation seems to work using UEFI, you have to convert MBR to GPT so when booting from the iso and seeing partition window, do the following :

    you click at the same time on "Shift + F10" then copy these command lines :

    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk x (x is the disk you're using)
    clean
    convert gpt
    exit

    then go back to the partition window to create your partition for win10 and continue the installation and see what happens.

    Thanks for the tip but I can't convert it to GPT disk because I have data on it so much that I can't backup plus I don't want to have GPT disk for compatibility reasons. Unless I can find a resolution for MBR Im gonna stick with 8.1

    Thanks again.

    go into the bios make sure your boot order is set to UEFI only not both legacy and UEFI.

    I don't want to go that way. Thanks for the reaction though.

    change the setting and see if it boots up once the installation is done go back into the bios and change that to legacy/UEFI whats so complicated about that?

    in some Laptops/Notebooks that issue happens when BIOS is not updated.

    When I try to update the BIOS, it warns me that, being in the legacy mode, it might not be able to update all the required files. I'll try to do it though.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    That could be tried, yes, I'll wait to see of others have any solutions. Then I'll go this route. I'm sorry I didn't understand you the first time around.

    Windows driver catalog serves a newer, incompatible driver with many old/legacy AMD switchable graphics.
    I had my fair share of issues with such laptops. Going UEFI mode actually improved stability.
    Still had random reboots and graphics issues on some of them and I could only achieve rock-solid stability on LTSB 2015 or LTSB 2016.
    Worth trying those first.

    Tried with the updated wim but still the same issue.

    Does anyone know how to file a bug report at Microsoft. They are aware of the issue but they haven't fixed it.

    what is the model number of your sister's Toshiba laptop, ceo54?

    edit - I see that you have "HP Laptop 15-bs0xx" listed in your report. be a little more specific with this HP model. is there a sticker on the bottom of the HP laptop? get the exact model number from there. ALL HP laptops should have some sort of sticker that lists both the model number and product number.
