‘Go back’ button on windows 11 deleted windows OS

Copper Contributor

I’ve downloaded windows 11 and I hate everything about it. I tried reverting back but it way well past the 10 day period so I tried pressing the ‘go back’ button. 

it took me to a blue screen that only had the options troubleshoot and shutdown my pc. When I clicked troubleshoot, it had 6 options to repair my pc. None of them even started to work. I shut it down, same screen. When I did it again, now I’m seeing a black screen that says ‘windows failed to start, insert windows installation media’, and shuts down on its own. 

please help me get back to windows 10. My pc has been having so many issues since I made the mistake of downloading windows 11.

Do you have access to the Windows Installation Media?
Are you able to boot from the installation file and perform startup repair?
