    Hi chuckf42,

    According to the logs, your system is running Windows 7.
    As you revert back, nothing of a crash is recorded because the data is erased.
    Do you perhaps know the error code that was displayed?
    If not, we need to make sure your system is fine BEFORE another attempt to Windows 10 will be made.
    This means that the hardware components needs to be verified that they are fine as with the system files.
    After the tests and the results are fine, you can try again but in case a BSOD occurs again please make sure automatically restart is disabled

    Please follow instructions below.

    Diagnostics Test

     System File Check

    Please try following:
    • Open an admin command prompt
    • Copy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
    • When it finished reboot your system
    • Open again an admin command prompt
    • Enter sfc/scannow again

    If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation" after the second SFC, please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
    System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.

    Diagnostics check ok. The bsod error message is System thread exception not handled. Drivers and bios have been updated. Ran update with restart on fail turned off and it still restarted after failure. I also now have a second Dell Optiplex 390 doing exactly the same thing.
