    What a buggy little devil! 2 days in a row I booted up to that pesky looping BSOD again! Had to do a quick secure erase and restore. The only update I found that seemed to occur was a security update for internet explorer flash player (KB3105216), but when I reboot, I get to the desktop with no issue? I can uninstall this if I want, but its not an option in the show/hide utility to keep it from installing again. Whats the next test here or setting please? Thanks

    Do you perhaps have any dump files in {windows partition}\Windows\Minidump\ ?
    If so, please use the BSOD log collector tool again and upload the zip file.

    Well,, heres the thing, and it may be because I don't understand these things,,, but in order to get a dump file, wouldn't you have to be able to boot up to the desktop, even in safe mode at minimal? The BSOD I get just loops thru Diagnostics and Repair, I can get into a bot menu, one of the options is to boot up in safe mode, but it wont. no matter what option I select, it goes into that loop. I cant get to a point to retrieve a boot log. Unless I'm missing something I can try otherwise? Thanks,

    I want to make sure the partitions are as they should be, so no partition is missing.
    After the partitions are fine, the boot files, that they are how they should be, we'll recreate them to be sure.

    Please open a command prompt and enter the following commands
    Code:
    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk 0
    list partition
    Make a photo of the command prompt and post it.

    Please make sure your BIOS is set as it should be, wrong settings in the BIOS could cause this crash.
    Usually you only have to load the optimal default settings, but sometimes after loading the optimal settings there needs to be some tweaking in the BIOS for the system to function properly.

    Thanks, I will check this evening. BIOS settings looked good from what I can tell, the BIOS custom profile I have been using for several years is still in use. Time will tell

    My 2 cents...
    Boot from the Windows dvd/usb and restore back to a date before the update.
    Hope you get it sorted

    Thanks for your input, but I don't follow? If I secure erase the SSD, then do a restore to a previous date via the use of a boot up into Acronis CD, what difference would it make from booting up Windows DVD or USB? Besides, I don't have a Windows 10 DVD.

    You are missing EFI and recovery partitions.
    The unallocated space is likely due to these removed partitions.

    The EFI partition is used for booting your system.
    This is a great post from genet | Windows 8 Help Forums for creating it, but I am not 100% sure if it works.
