  2. Roll Back To Windows 10 version 1609 - Previous Version

    Dear Community,

    Two weeks ago my Windows 10 OS updated to Win 10 version 1709. There are many bugs in this version and it degraded my graphics with the latest graphics driver. I even rolled back the driver to my previous version, it still does not work properly.

    Can anyone please provide instructions to roll back to my previous version of Win 10 OS? I cannot find a roll back option in Settings.

    Thank You,

    Paul

  3. reverting to previous build/version

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I would appreciate if you could answer few questions to narrow down the issue.


    • When the computer did froze? Is it when you tried to roll back?
    • Did you receive any error message?
    I suggest you to remove all the external devices plugged in to the computer and check if it helps to resolve the issue. If the issue persists, please restart the computer and check whether it rolled back or not. If it loads Windows 10,
    I suggest you to download the latest ISO of Windows 10 and perform automatic repair.

    http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

    Steps to perform repair:

    a) Insert the installation DVD or USB
    and boot Windows 8 from it.

    b) In the ‘Windows setup’ page select the language to install’, ‘Time and currency format’ and the ‘keyboard or input method’ and click on ‘next’.

    c) Click on ‘Repair your computer’ and select ‘Troubleshoot’.

    d) Click on ‘Advanced options’ and select ‘Automatic Repair’ and select the operating system.


    If you really would like to rollback, I suggest you to refer the below article on How to go back to the previous operating system (Windows 7/8.1) from Windows 10.

    Windows 10 stuck on reboot - While working to previous version of Windows

    Thanks for the reply, but the information in the links do not provide an answer to my problem. I know how to upgrade to windows 10 and how you're supposed to roll back to the previous version. I followed these steps.

    The problem is that after following the steps to roll back, that Windows 10 is now stuck in a reboot loop WHILE restoring to a previous version of Windows (7). I've no idea what to do about it.

    Edit: I fully understand you want to inject Windows 10 into the world asap, so helping out someone who wants to roll back to an older version is definitely not on your priority list, but even if there's a solution to save my files that requires/demands me
    to 'fix' Windows 10 on my PC, I'd be more than happy to accept that 'deal'.
