    Black Screen of Doom but Booted to login screen (no cursor just blank)


    Hey everyone.

    I did a bit of research and this seems to have been an issue for a while, or has been in the past. Was upgrading to windows 10, I first had to restart my pc cause it was initially stuck on that preparing to install problem with the green bar being stuck around 25%.

    It then got through that and began the installation process with the big circle and rebooting process. However around 91% when I last looked at it it was just black screen, this stayed this way for about 3-4 hours. I then decided to reboot the pc and it has now booted to the login screen. Is this a known bug or could there be a possible issue?

    The problem seems a bit different as some people I saw have had to fall back on PC restore points etc. So not sure if it installed or what could be the problem.

    Also side note, I upgraded my pc when windows 10 first publically released, but rolled back because I had about 5min shutdown times. So not sure what is going on and any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    I never had a problem upgrading like you've experienced but I experiencing Windows 10 upgrading process is the longest time taken ever compared to previous versions. It took me 1 hour+ to finished.

    Play around a little bit to get used to it then did a clean install. No problem arise, seems working fine.

    The point is, problems always happen after upgrading, to solve it just perform installation from scratch (clean install).

    Cool might have to pop onto their site and use the media creation tool then. How does it verify if you have a legitimate copy of windows 8?
