  1. Intermittent Freeze at Blue Logo during Boot


    Within the last few weeks, my PC started having an issue where it intermittently hangs at the blue windows logo during boot. About 50% of the time, it boots normally without hanging. The other 50% is a mixed bag. Sometimes it will boot fine after 1 or 2 hard resets. Other times it takes a trip or two through the "Automatic Repair." Whenever it goes into automatic repair, I always get the "could not repair your PC" message. Once the computer finally boots into Windows, it works perfect. No errors or issues. It is rock solid.

    To date, here is everything I have done:

    1. Scanned HDD for errors using CHKDSK. No Problems detected
    2. Tested HDD with SeaTools. Passes with no issues
    3. Tested RAM with both Windows Memory Diagnostic & MEMTEST. No Issues
    4. Ensured that all device drivers are up to date.
    5. Updated to the latest BIOS revision for my MB
    6. Scanned for malware - nothing found
    7. Ran SFC \Scannow
    8. Ran Dism Restorehealth
    9. Disabled fast startup in Windows
    10. Disable AppXSvc in the registry

    My PC was originally a Win7 machine but was upgraded to Win10 during the free upgrade period. It never had any of these issues until recently. Not sure if it could be related to a windows update or not. I haven't installed any new hardware recently. It is the same exact hardware from the day I built it.

    I haven't tried re-installing Windows yet. I don't want to go through all of that work unless I am confident it will solve the problem. Any suggestions on what else to try?

    :)

  3. Installation Hangs at Blue Windows Logo, Error Code C1900101-20017


    The BIOS update suggestion posted above by @Jegler helped me, @guhanath. I was on version 1.10 and updated to 1.90. The steps I took after that were just doing the official Windows 10 upgrade procedure.

    Then the Windows 10 installation went without a hitch, and I'm no longer on Windows 7. I'm going to consider this solved, thank you @Jelger for the suggestion to update the BIOS!

  4. Intermittent Freeze at Blue Logo during Boot

    Freezes at Blue Windows logo (no dots)

    I've got what appears to be a common problem where my computer occasionally freezes at the blue windows logo upon startup, without any spinning dots. If I power down and reboot it loads fine. I've turned off the fast startup, and unplugged any external USB
    drives that would have a backup, which seem to be the two most common suggestions.

    Let me know if you need any specific information regarding my PC. Thanks.
