BSOD after upgrading 7/8/10 to Windows 10 V1607 => 0xc000021a

    BSOD after upgrading 7/8/10 to Windows 10 V1607 => 0xc000021a

    I am upgrading some machines, most go without a hitch but some have a mysterious BSOD.

    I attached the dumps of a Windows 8 machine, i use MDT to upgrade to Windows 10 v1607 + do windows updates. BSOD happens after the first real boot (which means upgrade + updates have been done)

    Attachment 111266

    Already tried swapping the disk in a very simular machine (same model, different bios) but the problem follows the disk.

    Anyone who can help me or point me in the right direction?

    EDIT: Something i forgot, these systems still boot in Safe mode! Tried cleanboot but no luck.

    Hello and welcome to TenForums :)

    The error seems to be related to a problem with the session manager initialisation.

    The Winlogon process terminated unexpectedly.
    Arg1: ffffde8e0026d0b0, String that identifies the problem.
    Arg2: 00000000c0000022, Error Code.
    2: kd> da ffffde8e0026d0b0
    ffffde8e`0026d0b0  "Session Manager Initialization"
    If you can boot into safe mode please try to run the system file checker and repair the system files. It might also be worth running a disk check with repair as well.

    Are there any differences in the BIOS settings for the laptops and PC which end up not booting? I am thinking of things like legacy versus UEFI boot or possibly the way the disk mode is set (AHCI or IDE).
