Windows 10: 15007 works fine until I restart
15007 works fine until I restart
This has happened to me in a few builds, Windows works fine, or at least fairly well, until I reboot or shut down my computer. When it restarts or I turn it back on, it won't boot into Windows. 15007 is one of those builds.
The last time this happened I was able to reset my computer and keep my files. This time when I choose to reset, it tells me it is unable to reset.
My BIOS will POST and then I get the dots circling and that's it. Windows won't boot. So I hit my reset button on my computer a few times and the Windows troubleshooting menu will come up. I've tried the different options, it won't repair, can't boot into safe mode (goes to Automatic repair instead which doesn't work), so like last time, I had to resort to resetting. Except this time when I try to reset it says "There was a problem resetting your PC. No changes were made".
So, I downloaded the ISO. Went into the BIOS and booted from my USB stick (downloaded and created a bootable USB stick on my laptop). It gives me the following message: "It looks like you started an upgrade and booted from installation media. If you want to continue with the upgrade, remove the media from your PC and click Yes. If you want to perform a clean installation instead, click No."
If I remove the USB stick and click yes, it restarts and goes back to the circling dots. If I click no, it goes to the Windows install screen (select Language, Time and currency, and Keyboard). Here I can choose Install or Repair my computer. Choosing Repair, it takes me back to the 'Choose an option' troubleshooting page.
So I click Install and it gives me the option to Upgrade (keep files) or Install Windows. I try to Upgrade and I get a Compatibility Report that says "The upgrade option isn't available if you start your computer using Windows installation media." Additionally, "If a copy of Windows is already installed on this computer and you want to upgrade, remove the installation media and restart your computer. After Windows has started normally, insert the installation media and run Windows Setup."
I'm guessing my only option at this point is a clean install and then I can do a backup from my server. Open to suggestions.
