  1. Surface Laptop 3 freezes after installing Windows 10 20H2


    Hello,


    I tried to reinstall Windows 10 20H2 on my Surface 3 laptop, and after Windows was done setting up, its frozen. Its frozen at the screen to configure Windows. Touch screen doesn't work, neither does the keyboard and mouse. Tried to go back to Windows 1909, but the same thing happens.


    Any help would be appreciated.


    Thank you,

    Charles Woodard

    :)

    Boot Surface Laptop to USB - no Volume button

    Hello Jimmy, Surface Laptop 3 freezes after installing Windows 10 20H2 :)

    This doesn't list the "Surface Laptop", but you might give it a try to see.

    *Arrow Boot Microsoft Surface from a USB device

    Otherwise, you should be able to use OPTION ONE below to boot from the USB from advanced startup.

    Surface 3 Clean Install


    Hi Everyone

    I have recently upgraded my Surface 3 to Windows 10 and I wish to do a clean install, to install a fresh copy of windows without having all the old data from Windows 8.1. Would I be fine following, "How to do a clean install" tutorial via Ten Forums or would there be a different process for doing this for a Surface?

    I am guessing since its basically a mini laptop I would just follow the same steps? I have made a boot-able USB for this. Also would my Surface automatically activate or should I note down the product key just in case it doesn't?

    Thanks
