    Stuck at sign-in circular loading animation after reboot

    I upgraded to windows 10 from 8.1 through Microsoft's updater.
    I used Windows 10 for web browsing and then after my use, I shut the computer down.
    After my first reboot, OS crashed several times and sent me to the recovery page.

    Steps I took:
    1. Reset system (keep files)
    -> Failed
    2. Restore
    -> Failed

    System reboots with a black screen and a mouse pointer.
    Few minutes later, I see a blue screen with a circular loading animation icon.
    I gave it few hours before force shutdown (I also left the system running overnight. No progress).
    Every single recovery option did not work, and I could not find any solutions online.

    What I do have:
    Linux Mint (as dual boot).
    Can access Windows 10 drive from Mint.

    It seems like the only solution I see is to clean install Windows 10 after backing up my files... but I want to know if there is a solution without having to wipe my drive.

    Instead of doing a clean install, I would try to run the upgrade tool again.
