I have attempted on my own to no avail try to fix this issue with my laptop I'm trying to do a factory reset and it has gone through to about 64% and is now stuck in a continuous loop of loading up getting to the installation portion and then resetting again.

For whatever reason I can't figure out how to get it to restart the installation

I have no way to get any outside boot method IE disk or USB

I have also tried power cycling the laptop to no avail.

What can I do to fix this issue.

Try this...

1. Turn off the laptop.
2. Turn off your WiFi, or take the laptop to an area where there isn't any WiFi. (If connected via Ethernet, unplug it.)
3. Turn on the laptop.
4. Once it fully loads, then turn on your WiFi again.

It should work now. Sometimes (especially in 10) updates, including those that come after a reset, can get the computer stuck. It happens when an update fails, for whatever reason, and the device continually tries to get it to install over and over. Leaving you 'stuck'. Until you take away its ability to continue trying the update, hence the no WiFi, then it should load.
