Solved Dell tablet reboot loop while factory resetting Windows 10

Dell Venue 8 pro tablet computer
January 5, 2016 at 13:24:06
Specs: Windows 10, 3.60GB of usable RAM
I have a real doozy here

My tablet - Dell Venue 8 Pro - was having a lot of issues and I was also running out of space so I decided to factory reset it (which I have done many times before). It got to 64% and it was stuck there for over 3 hours. I then made the foolish decision to hold the power button so it would turn off and then back on with the hope the install to get going (I realize that was not logical at all). It kept giving me a prompt saying it got interrupted. pressing either of the available buttons would cause the device to restart and show the prompt again and again. So I decided to hold the power button again. Now my device is in an infinite boot loop where it shows the Dell logo for about 10 seconds, then the dell logo shifts about a half inch downwards, then it flashes the windows 10 installation percentage screen (64%) and quickly turns off and repeats the process indefinitely.

I don't think there is a solution for this because I really got it screwed up. But if there is anything that I can try please tell me!

You probably need to contact Dell on this. Unlike a laptop or desktop, if the factory restore cannot be restarted, there is not much else you can do without Dell.
.... or wait for other opinions on this.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

The RAM that I put in is not correct by the way. I don't think that matters though

"The RAM that I put in is not correct by the way"

Do you mean the RAM you posted in your specs is incorrectly stated, or the RAM you put in your computer is the wrong RAM?
