    BSOD after system reset, then stuck in boot loop, now freezes.


    Hey all,

    I recently upgraded to Windows 10 without a problem, but after a while I thought; why not do a clean install?
    I went ahead and tried to perform a clean install from the windows 10 settings, and chose all drives, and a quick reset.

    It then started the process, after which it crashed with a BSOD telling me something went wrong and that it would restart. After that it kept restarting, sometimes with a BSOD, sometimes just freezing on the windows 10 logo. There were different BSOD errors each time it would crash, I can't remember all of them.
    Some of them were along the lines of a driver stack overrun, some were telling me system32/winload didn't exist.

    I had someone knowledgeable come over to try and fix it, but to no avail. We tried a system restore from USB, but there was no difference. We tried going into the BIOS menu, sometimes it worked, sometimes it froze, and we made sure that the USB would be the first the PC would boot from. Still no difference.
    At this point the PC just froze on the windows logo, still trying to initialize the system reset I think. I unplugged the drives and plugged them into my laptop to check what was wrong, and both drives were wiped, with nothing left, no hidden files.

    Only with both drives unplugged, the PC would give me something different, an error saying that there is no operating system, which is obvious, so I don't think it's the PC, but windows that is generating this problem.
    I tried booting from USB multiple times, with a system restore on it, a windows 10 installation on it, and a windows 8.1 installation on it, since that is what my PC started with.

    So yeah.. PC now just freezes on startup, sometimes on the windows logo, sometimes on the screen that allows you to enter the BIOS menu.

    Does anyone here have the faintest idea of what's going on?

    Regards,

    Bryan

    Hi Skyward Demise,

    I'm very sorry for the delay, there aren't many people in this section.
    Are you still requiring help?

    Please create a new thread for your problem and give details about your problem as I understand you cannot boot in Windows.
