I had installed Windows 10 and Debian 8.8 (with LXDE) in dual boot
(UEFI) and everything was working. I wanted to reinstall Debian, so I
installed Debian again by deleting the debian partitions (I think
correctly) using the Debian installer partitioner and choosing the
Guided use largest continuous space option, this time I installed with
the Gnome desktop environment. I am getting a Oh No, Something has gone
wrong message, the system cannot recover' message after booting into
Debian. Should I have deleted the prior Debian entry in the EFI

No. The new installation deleted it automatically.

does this have anything to do with this error?


Check the UUIDs of the system (ls -lh /dev/disk/by-UUID)

This is just a Gnome error, mostly due to lack of required features in the graphics subsystem. LXDE worked fine because it has fewer requirements than Gnome. Sometimes you just need to install non-free firmwares (often with a Radeon GPU). Sometimes you need to install newer kernel or Xorg drivers. Felix's answer instructs how to gather useful information.
