    Must use system restore when reboot


    Latest Asus Bios update, Version 1709 (OS Build 16299.192.
    Users files are located on my D: drive.

    When the computer is shut down the message "Getting Windows Ready. Don't turn off your computer" is displayed.
    When rebooting the process stops at the lockscreen and USB ports are not recognized.

    When booting into the UEFI of the Asus Z170-Deluxe, the USB ports are operational.

    I can use System Restore, to restore to exactly the same state as before shutdown of the computer. The computer will reboot and USB ports are operational and I can login to Windows.

    Can this be a motherboard related problem even though the USB ports work fine in the UEFI?Must use system restore when reboot-winver.pngMust use system restore when reboot-device-manager-usb-controllers.png

    Hi.
    Not sure about this - have never seen it before, but, do you have Fast Startup turned on in Windows? If so, turn it off and give it a couple full shutdowns/restarts (not reboots), and see if that doesn't make a difference.

    Hi simrick,

    Fast startup was off, however when UEFI setting Fast Boot -> [Disabled], Fast startup became enabled.
    In UEFI Native ASPM -> [Enabled] to allow OS control of ASPM. And I loaded system defaults from UEFI and also cleared CMOS.
    (then Fast Boot -> [Disabled] and Native ASPM -> [Enabled] set in BIOS again).

    In Device Manager all USB devices cannot be turned off to save power.
    fast startup and sleep are not checked.
    And in Accounts, use my sign in to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart is disabled.

    An USB drives are plugged into some of the USB ports, to cause those port to be read during start up.

    The computer can be shut down or restarted and the USB ports are being recognized.

    However, it will take another day or so of normal use of the computer to see if this problem is resolved.

    Thank you for your suggestion.

    After I restored a backup from early November, ran sfc /scannow and DISM /Onlin /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth, and installed new drivers using Driver Genius, the USB ports are being recognized and Win10 is able to boot consistently. Before deciding to restore a backup from November, RealBench max CPU temp was 100 C. Now the CPU max temperature is 80C.

    The most recent BIOS updated the CPU microcode to protect against Spectre.

    Even though I have the most recent Windows Updates (Semi-Annual Channel), the utility program InSpectre ( https://grc.com/inspectre.htm ) shows a Vulnerability to Meltdown and Spectre.

    That's good news.

    Yes, I don't think the manufacturers have got this whole thing quite figured out yet....

    Windows update kb4073290 took care of the Spectre and Meltdown vulnerablility. See Sticky in Win 10 News.

    Windows Client Guidance against speculative execution vulnerabilities - Page 31 - Windows 10 Forums

    HP and Dell now recommending users uninstall the new bios and replace it with older bios until new update available due to serious reboot/stability issues.
    So, it's still a bit of a mess.
