    Win 10 Pro (1703)

    Hi, no doubt given your extensive experience you
    - will be aware of the risks of updating to an OS if the manufacturer has not verified the particular PC is compatible with it.
    - will have maintained disk images for the devices and updated the disk image before upgrading
    - will be aware of the potential risk of the major change involved in upgrading the OS
    - will be aware of the possibility of programs not being compatible with a particular OS build

    You will know you can freely download Win 10 installation media, and that if you boot from that, Advanced Startup options offer
    Go back to previous build
    System Image Recovery
    UEFI F/W settings
    command prompt
    System Restore
    Startup Repair

    Of these, the first might help you.

    I'm running Win 10 Pro Workstation on my Lenovo P71 workstation laptop and regular Win 10 Pro on my ThinkPad T470s and Dell Latitude E7470 and have no problems on any of them.

    Clean installations with the latest BIOS'.
