Windows 10: Clean Install on 1-month old Surface Laptop

    Clean Install on 1-month old Surface Laptop


    Another one-month new issue Clean Install on 1-month old Surface Laptop

    Santa gave me a new i7 Surface Laptop that I immediately upgraded to W10 Pro. Well, I seem to have a weekly BSD, and many suggestions online say to try a clean OS install. I do nothing on this machine that my lower spec'd Lenovo and MBP can't handle without blinking.

    I'm running the media creation tool now. Any suggestions before I move forward? Or any detractors who think I should take a different approach? Thanks.

    Hi pseudoware

    I assume a BSD is a BSOD. You could submit the necessary info to the BSOD team and see what they identify as cause.

    I agree with that recommendation. When you go thru the MCT, there is a selection to include system files or uncheck that option. Either way I suspect it isn't a good idea to do so not knowing what the basic problem is.

    Yes, BSOD, lol. Thanks for the replies, that's a useful resource. Oh well, I've done the clean install. Not too bad. It's more of a pain getting the system set up the same way, just how I like it. So far, so good (knock on wood). Hope it stays that way, but I'll make use of that tool should the need arise.
