    BSOD on Restart, Boots fine from cold power up

    If I am in Windows 10 and choose "Restart" or the OS reboots from a software install/update, I get a BSOD after post.

    The screen reads:
    Your PC/Device needs to be repaired
    The operating system couldn't be loaded because the kernel is missing or contains errors.
    File: /windows/system32/ntoskrnl.exe
    Error code: 0xc0000221

    If I power the system down or do a shut down, from a cold power off, it boots fine every time. Only a warm restart causes this error.

    For your post 2, I have done the in place upgrade repair just before I posted on this forum, actually did it twice till I realized a cold boot allowed me to get back into the system, so I have not done it again. I have my system backup up on a NAS, so did not need to do that. I did disable fast boot which had no affect as my issue occurs for soft restarts only, not for cold boot.

    This is a new system build, the only software that I could not find my license for was Adobe creative suite 6. During the November earthquake my workshop got thrashed and I still have boxes of crap that came out of bookshelves that I had to sort through to find my damn license. So I didn't uninstall anything for your post 4, but i removed the keygen and put my license in.
