This is the case for one user who the following message on Reddit:

Cannot boot Windows 10 after formatting and installing through USB drive. Gets stuck in the “Getting everything ready for you” window… What can I do? Switch to Linux? (1st time with this kind of issues, at every new release I format and reinstall everything without any issue… with this build no luck this time)

The OP didn’t offer any further details about the type of the computer used or what solutions he tried to solve the issue.
