    Win10 Updated, Now Freezes, Can't Roll Back to Previous Build

    SOLVED: I 'reset' my PC. Seems to have fixed the problem.
    Last night my Windows 10 Pro PC updated to a newer version. The OS Build is currently at 10586.589. Immediately after updating, the PC starts to completely lock up within two mins of it booting up. It happens every time I boot up the system.

    I tried to go back to a previous build but I am not able to. There is no such option in Settings > Update & Security > Recovery, and I can't also roll back from the special troubleshooting menu (Shift + Restart). It simply says "We ran into a problem rolling back, etc etc."
    I have no idea what to do. It works perfectly fine in Safe Mode (which is where I am writing from) but on a normal boot up, it hangs within two mins. The only option I see is 'resetting' my PC, but I am hoping there is a workaround this. I will appreciate any help provided.
    Edit: Unfortunately, I don't have a system recovery as well. I have no idea why Windows never created one even though I specifically never touched that setting due to previous experience.
