I have an ASUS ROG GL551JW-DS71 and had issues with it blue screening after only 5-10 minutes. I forget the name of the error but I remember it saying it could be a wide array of things but likely ram or drive issues. After a while I decided to reinstall Windows but it took a long time to do as the normal way in the windows repair screen wouldn't work. Now that I have reinstalled windows it is stuck at "windows is getting ready" screen. If I reinstall Windows again it just gets stuck at the same point. Any help or comments would be much appreciated, thanks!

I think it is a hard drive issue as I ran into a similar issue when re-installing windows that took at least 6hrs to install just for itself so ran a diagnostic on the drive & failed the test.
