Windows 10: Cant boot windows after install
Cant boot windows after install
So Iím doing a clean install on a new SSD I just bought. The Samsung 850 EVO. I have a USB flash drive that I use to try to install Win 10 and I cannot get it to work. I get to the install screen and when it says it need to reboot it wonít reboot back into the Windows installer. All I get is this when it reboots. (See attached picture) I have tried after the restart to boot into the SSD and the flash drive. I get the same message as mentioned before if I reboot into the SSD, and if I reboot into the Flash drive it just restarts the whole installation process. I also can see in the installation program that the OS has taken space up on the SSD even though I cannot boot from it. Any ideas?
Not sure about this but I had a similar problem with an older Sata II OCZ SSD drive I tried in a newer machine.
The problem was that the drive wasn't always recognized by the bios and even when it was it didn't last long enough for the installation of Windows to complete.
I take it from your comment that setup did not complete, correct ?
Hence a non-bootable drive and PXE trying to find a bootable network drive which isn't present.
That said, your particular problem may well be of a totally different nature so it's anyone's guess to what may cause it.
You could try the following; in bios set up disable "Secure boot", disable "fast boot" .
If bootsector protection against virus warning is enabled the machine should loop into bios but you can also try to disable that as well.
Should you have a spare drive you could try that and see if that works, if it doesn't then that would rule out the Samsung SDD as the culprit.
Sometimes Win 10 runs into trouble with a MBR drive while bios is set to UEFI and so on.
Well, here's the thing, I just tried re-installing win 10 on my old hard drive that came with the laptop. And it came up with the same error. Do you think it's something that's wrong with my bios since it doesn't work on my original drive?

You have good backups? Might want to consider a hard re-install. Blow away ALL partitions and let Windows install and create what it needs.
Yes, I suspect something's wrong with the bios settings. You could try loading the default settings ( F3 ? ) and try again.

I have the Windows 10 Pro ISO with a Windows 10 key. (from MSDN)
I want to install Windows 10 as dual boot with Windows 8.1. Both are x64.
Is it possible to install Windows 10 from the ISO? I know you can upgrade that way. But I...
I tried to update my Windows 8.1 installation on my Thinkpad T61p to Windows 10. It went smoothly until it finished copying the files (75% complete). It is now rebooting in an endless loop (reboot -> Windows logo with spinning circle -> black screen...
I tried to install Windows 10 Pro 32 using a DVD .. and, booting from the DVD.
When I got to the point where the Key was needed, it didn't accept the key.
(I used the Windows 7 Pro 32 key that the machine already had for lack of any other).
After several weeks of testing I'm ready to go full on Windows 10 and want to get rid of Windows 7 but I have some partitioning issues I want to clean up. I currently have Windows 7 on drive 0 (360 GB) and Windows 10 on drive 1 (500 GB). Both are...
So like a dispshit I did not read the dual boot directions because I really did not expect it to be this big of bitch to dual boot.. So how do I boot into windows 7 if I did not do the dual boot instructions?
