Windows 10: freeze after system reset

    freeze after system reset

    I was having major issues on my HP DV7 laptop with win 10 so tried resetting to win 7 and now for 5+ hours has been stuck on "resetting this PC 99%". can I power it off and restart or should I just let it keep going? there was nothing worth saving so not worried about losing anything.

    Hi dollhoobs,

    Your question is not related to a BSOD, but it could be when you turn your power off and try to restart.
    Breaking the command to return to windows 7 will break your system, but most import is that you could damage your hard drive with bad luck.

    I recommend you to wait until the reset is finished.
