Rasbian Install Problems

Hi everyone, I am attempting to set up a RPi 3 B+. I have downloaded the software from NOOB onto a SD card and have started the install process. However, each time it gets to 100%, then goes to the screen with the raspberry and the text "hold for recovery and the shift bar picture" and then goes to a black screen with code and errors from failed systems. Help please

Hmm. Is your SD card genuine and working ok? Can you test with another card?

In the meantime, is there anything else I could try?

Well you can try installing Raspbian instead of Noobs.
Noobs has a complicated partition and booting scheme. Raspbian is just one OS, on 2 partitions, very simple.

If Raspbian fails to boot or the Pi boots but does not restart (one of the “first boot” actions on Raspbian is to auto-resize to the SD size and reboot):
Something is wrong with the SD.
Or the PSU is too weak (eg not the official one but a random mobile phone charger).
Or the Pi indeed has a problem.

There is a few possible causes/combinations but user error, inadequate PSU and broken SD are the most frequent ones I would say.
