    Infinite Reboot Loop


    Had Windows 7 installed, upgraded to Windows 10.

    Worked well & following a Microsoft update it went into an infinite reboot loop.

    Tried to re-install 10 but no joy so wiped & tried Windows 7. I still have the infinite reboot loop.

    When I do a clean install it goes through & works but then starts with the loop.

    I tried to use repair but no joy.

    I can boot using Safe Mode in 7.

    I deleted some of the partitions before doing a clean install.

    Any thoughts and help much appreciated.

    You really haven't provided enough information. For example, is it a laptop or desktop? Win 7 OEM or Retail? So, lacking all that information, I would suggest "deleting all partitions" when doing a clean install of Win 7 to make it a true clean install.

    It's an Oem version of 7 that was updated through Microsoft to 10.
    Desktop PC.
    I deleted all partitions that it would allow.
    Windows is installed on a 1TB HDD & I also have a 3TB HDD that I retain all my photos/docs on.

    Any help appreciated.

    During a clean install, you should be able to delete all partitions. That would take your drive down to a 100% unallocated state; however, this would nullify any OEM key or recovery functionality that was present before the clean install. See here for more information:

    With having everything I need saved on the 3TB HDD I'm happy if I can start fresh & just fix it some how.
