    Was 7 then 10 - now stuck somewhere inbetween

    Windows 10 back to 7 stuck

    I have tried to go back to 7 after the first Windows 10 update caused havoc with my internet connection... final straw was DPC watchdog violation...

    Anyway my machine (a desktop) is stuck on "restoring your previous version of Windows" loop...

    Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

    Well I have the same problem. Tried to upgrade my Microsoft tablet from 8.1 to 10 but the install went sour and it tried to restore my previous version of Windows. However the restore just does and endless loop after the startup fails and tries to restore again and again and ....................................... So what now. I have no USB ports and no DVD and no keyboard. I had a funny feeling this might happen. Windows 10 is not ready for prime time.

    Any suggestions... Please.

    Windows 10 is not ready for prime time.
    Truer words were never spoken!
    Save me a lot of typing by just reading my Signature Line!
    I won't dream of ever doing anything, with such a chance of disaster, as allowing a new OS to overwrite my Main OS.
    It's called, "Better Safe than Sorry".

    My own solution to your problem, if it were mine, would be to get out the last Backup I made of my OS and just restore it.
    Game over, , , problem solved.

    Good Luck!
