    BSOD Clock watchdog timeout Windows 10

    Found my fix:

    1. Downloaded a current (April 2018) ISO of Windows 10 64-bit from Microsoft

    1. Downgraded product from "Enterprise" to "Pro"
    2. HIGHLY LIKELY issue with UPDATES for Spectre and Meltdown

    Windows now works!! those new updates are not installed yet (unless they are part of the new ISO i used.)

    Number of different BSODs - Can't figure for the problem

    The bugcheck was synthetic watchdog timeout: 1CA

    Were you able to run V2 or check for a memory dump?
    Upload V2 after any BSOD.

    Update the progress with the steps in post #17.
