    Upgraded Windows 8.1 to 10 .But it always goes into recovery mode


    Hi

    I upgraded from Win8.1 to Win10 on my Lenovo Laptop and every thing was fine .Then i went and installed the Nvidia driver for my graphics card and restarted .
    On doing the restart i was getting a blank black screen. So then i went into safe mode and installed the Intel graphics drivers that came with my laptop and restarted .

    On doing the restart I am always going into recovery mode now . Even if i try to boot in safe mode it goes into recovery mode. I tried even to do the windows repair via the recovery mode but it does not work.

    The only thing that i have is the command prompt in recovery mode .
    Can I install the latest driver via command prompt in recovery mode ? or how should i fix this issue ?

    Please can anyone help . Thanks

    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    seems to me you should be try to remove the offending driver installation..
    as it appears the driver installation is what caused the problem in the first place..

    pnputil -e > c:\drivers.txt

    open drivers.txt with notepad and check which one you want to uninstall. It will be oemnn.inf where nn is a 2 digit number of type Display Adapter.

    pnputil -d oemnn.inf to uninstall it.

    It could be done by booting your system with WinPE
    And then use DISM to find the driver and remove the driver..

    WinPE can be found in my sig below

    You'll want to add a Nvidea driver eventually. You could add it with add-windowsdriver command (if you already have the driver) but it would be easier to add it through device manager once you've got into windows.

    Until then it will use the Microsoft Basic Display adapter which will be fine.

    Thanks everyone for the help .But finally i had to restore my laptop back to 8.1 and again do the 10 upgrade. Now I installed the latest drivers for my Nvidia graphics card. So far every thing works fine.
