    Computer Will Not Boot After Windows 10 Installation


    Im having trouble with my Windows 10 clean install. Once it installs it says it is resetting to complete installation, after it resets it will not load to the windows screen. It just loads bios and hangs with a prompt flashing on a black screen. I then used DISKPART to clean the disks and tried a new install in MBR and again in GPT formats, still the same result. What am I doing wrong? Are the RAID drives causing the problem? The machine was running fine before. I had a free upgrade from 7 and did the process of upgrading to 10 first before the clean install to activate the product. That went fine. I ran the hardware diagnostics from the BIOS and it failed the boot test with error code BIOHD3. Warning: No active partitions.

    The machine is a HP with a

    9GB DDR3-1333MHz SDRAM [3 DIMMs]

    I don't have a solution, but some thoughts on the problem:

    - Windows 10 must have been activated at least once after the upgrade. If that has been the case, it's fine. If not, your Windows 10 will not activate.
    - RAID 0 basically only is an array of two independant discs. I don't know in how far that can cause problems.
    - The information that you are missing an active partition matches what you say you see on bootup: Nothing happens as no drive is used.

    I am no experts in fixing such bootup problems, but I would now check, if it helped to mark one of the primary partitions as active. If so, I would try doing that with the right partition and see, if it helps.
