    Windows in a boot loop after changing to Insider


    Yesterday I decided to join and install windows 10 insider builds, when I changed it over it said it needed to restart, upon restarting it would show the windows logo then go to a black screen and sit there. If I move the mouse it shows up with a load circle on it but its flickering like it cant load something. I left it on while I slept because I was hoping it would eventually load or something, when I woke up it was still doing it. I attempted a system restore and got an error 0X8000FFFF, when I went back to system restore to see if I can restore to another point there were no more points and the one I just got through using was no longer there. I am currently on a windows 7 trial that I happened to have laying around so I could get on a forum and ask. I also just tried to go to command prompt and use the bootrec /fixmbr and the bootrec /fixboot commands, that didnt work. I tried to run it in safe mode as well and that didn't help either. I have also tried running a repair and it just says it cant be completed. Any help on this problem would be much appreciated, I asked a win10 help agent and they just sent me to the insider forums, I asked their hours ago and no one responded. I realize I may sound impatient but I really hate being on a trial windows and just want the nightmare to stop.

    If I don't reply right away please note that I recently started a job and have to go to orientation in an hour and it will last a couple of hours so that's why no response.

    W10 Insider + Linux

    Download latest version of windows, put it on a USB or DVD so is bootable. Boot from it and attempt the repair from there or just do full installation if repair fails. If your W10 was activated on that computer it will activate without entering registration. Make sure you are at same MSA.

    yea, I was trying to do it without having to do a reinstall, I already tried the repair.
