    Let me repeat:

    I changed HDD. HDD get used a lot and die. Everything was working until most recent update. That means I had no issues running the OS until something in this update did something like refuse to run on certain hardware possibly.

    I upgraded from Windows 7. I now have a retail copy as the OEM did not work when I tried to upgrade during free upgrade period.

    I cannot boot into desktop. It is is impossible after third restart. No way is booting in OS a thing on third restart.

    You mentioned Linux.
    Were you dual booting? Using two partitions on one drive?
    Can you boot now installing Ubuntu or booting to Ubuntu on a flash drive?
    If so see if you can perform one of these SMART tests on the HD:

    CrystalDiskInfo - Software - Crystal Dew World: CrystalDiskMark - Software - Crystal Dew World

    Software - Crystal Dew World

    HD Tune: http://www.hdtune.com/

    Hard Disk Sentinel - HDD health and temperature monitoring: Hard Disk Sentinel - HDD health and temperature monitoring

    When the SMART test has completed make images and post into the thread.


    Hard Disk Sentinel - Free Linux version
    Also please perform memtest86+ testing on the RAM /MB: ram - How do I run memtest86+? - Ask Ubuntu
    Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

    We may overrun with our questions, but could you tell us what hardware tests you ran?

    I used a boot USB which has multiple tests for testing hardware. It is something someone made for me when I was in the IT trade in early 2000. It is extremely reliable. Never ran into an issue. Everything looks healthy. I even ran stress tests and okay. No crashes.

    I tried running just Linux and everything ran. There were no hiccups. I obviously need Windows for some things.

    The temperature is not in thermal throttle zone.

    My guess is that no one can help. Oh well. Might as well dump this PC if Windows will not run on it.

    We can help you, but not knowing what tests have been run we don't know what exactly has been tested. Many tests approach hardware testing differently, the results, as such, may differ from other tests.

    That there are tests performed for the drives, ram, cpu and other parts is good to know, but it does not answer the question what tests were performed or by what program.

    I tested the hardware and it is all healthy. The fact that I can edit photos on Linux and reboot without issue means my hardware is not busted.

    I cannot get past the BSOD after a third restart. This is my issue. I want help overcoming this. All I want is a solution to an issue which I have given far more information than needed.

    When you next clean install windows make sure you immediately add an option to the boot menu to boot into safe mode. This should help when you come to the third restart and give you a work around to get into safe mode.

    Add Safe Mode to Boot Options in Windows 10
