    Windows 10 upgrade install crashing at first login screen

    After installing Windows 10 - on the first login screen, when I enter my password pc is freezing up, after a few seconds it fades to black and then restarts. Cannot get past this part, anyone else have this issue?

    The PC I'm upgrading is a Dell Inspiron laptop upgrading from Win7.

    I'm having the same exact issue on a custom built system. No idea what to do and getting more frustrated as time passes.

    Well, oddly I pressed enter and managed to get through it after unplugging my wifi adapter and am now sitting at the desktop. For some reason mouse input completely locked my system up.

    Thank you so much. I have been wrestling with the exact same issue all day. I finally stumble across this post and have removed my wifi adapter and its moved on.

    Ugh... seems my issue got worse.

    I ended up downloading the Win10 usb install option to see if I could repair installation, did not work - now it boots into the blue screen error BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO

    Anyone had a similar issue?
    Is there a work-around I can do via the CMD?
    Hard drive is okay from what I can tell since I can boot into Ubuntu and see all my windows files...
    Also crashes when I boot into safe mode.

    Thank you for this! Removing my wifi adapter worked! I made this account just to say that.
