    I left it on over night and the majority of yesterday and nothing changed.
    Before reinstalling Windows, I recommend booting into Safe Mode.
    1. Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete a few times during the blue Windows logo with the spinning dots (the logo may be the manufacturer's). (Not the motherboard screen)
    2. Keep doing that until you get a "starting Startup Repair" message.
    3. Wait for startup repair to finish scanning. It may or may not detect problems. If it detects and fixes problems, great, but I would recommend continuing anyway to make sure that everything has been fixed.
    4. Choose Advanced Options on the screen after startup repair.
    5. Choose Troubleshooting.
    6. Choose Startup Options,
    7. Click the "Reboot" button.
    8. You'll get a screen of options that says to press the corresponding number of the startup mode that you want on the keyboard. Press the number for safe mode (I think this is 5)
    9. If it boots into safe mode, great. If it can't, and freezes or something, you can just hold the power button on the front of the computer for a few seconds and it will shut off.
    10. If it does boot, sign in, and open Device Manager.
    11. In Device Manager, at the top, click Actions, and select Scan for Hardware Changes.
    12. Any drivers you need for the hardware on the new computer will be installed (the old drivers most likely carried over).

    Then choose Restart under Power in the start menu.

    If that fails, boot into Safe Mode and right click and click remove on all of the devices in Device Manager and reboot, but if that also does not fix the problem, an install directly on that computer with a CD/USB would be your best bet.

    When I tried to boot into safe mode the same screen would appear. I booted the Windows iso off of my usb and tried to do a startup repair and it couldn't diagnose the problem. I then tried to reset my PC and it says "The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again." I went into command prompt and saw that the drives were online, but I don't know how to unlock them. This shows why Windows wasn't booting correctly on my main drive.

    Hi, I got the same problem since yesterday (over night, no changes I know of). The PC doesn't boot anymore, it stops with the screen and the spinning dots (after the windows logo, just a unicolor screen with the spinning dots). Ctrl-Alt-Delete didn't do anything. Interestingly enough, I could log on via remote desktop from my android phone (the PC screen didn't change while I was doing that. Any ideas? I have tried to restart several times and waited for ten hours, the spinning dots stayed...

    Infinite Loading Bug


    What I did is changed the SSD mode from ACHI to IDE from my bios. I then wiped my drives using the Windows creation media tool. After that everything worked good as new after I backed up my PC! If you don't have a back up, then you will not have many options, you may either lose your information, or contact a professional
