When the system displays this error code 0x8007025D Windows 10 or 8, this means that there are several issues with your system. This error code is common when booting from bios to USB when installing Windows 10. The error can also arise when you do a clean install of Windows 10. So, this explains as to why it didn’t go through.
In this case, what I can highly suggest is to utilize all the recovery image you can download one at a time to check if one the recovery image would be able to let you make your Surface device operable again. Please follow the instructions below to be guided.
