    Windows 10 reset BSOD?

    So I'm on the latest Windows 10 build (RTM) 10240 and today I wanted to reset my PC since I was getting some pretty poor gaming performance. Anyway I ran the reset and after it finished resetting, it got constant BSODs of inaccessible_boot_device. Thankfully Windows undid all the changes and I'm back to my old system.

    Is there any way of doing a clean Windows 10 install without all this crap? Or if possible, can I go back to Windows 8.1 for now? I think doing the reset deleted all my previous Windows installs which kinda sucks. Is there any way to roll back to Windows 8?

    It would probably be best to clean install your previous OS at this point.

    I have the same problem with getting a bsod on reset. That being said, try manually updating your graphics drivers.

    This is a mess. Question is how can I go back to Windows 8.1 and just upgrade to RTM from there? I've tried mounting the Windows 8 ISO and installing it from there but it doesn't let me (due to some error of not being able to find versions or something like that). I'm guessing the only way to do a clean install of Windows 8 over 10 is through a bootable USB in this case?

    Hmm, I'm on the latest Nvidia drivers for Windows 10 - 353.62 or something. Are you suggesting reinstalling?
