    Windows 10 is hard locking within 1 minute of boot (even login screen)

    I just put an old drive back onto system (Main hard drive won't boot at all currently see-

    The old drive had worked fine until Windows 10 did an update this AM. Now, it freezes. If I don't login right away, it even will freeze the LOGIN screen! I have NEVER seen that!
    I have about 1 minute or so before it locks up.
    Safemode seems to work fine.


    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    I got my OTHER hard drive working, so I am not requiring any assistance on this one. Thanks for your time reading!

    Glad you solved your problem.

    The hard drive would have been the first thing I would have recommended to check..
