    Total failure of Windows Ten.

    Hi, I'm , I live in Holland and am new to this forum and have a huge, unoverseeable problem with the ACER laptop I bought a year ago with Windows 10 pre-installed on it. A huge problem.

    Let me give you some examples:
    1 - When I click on the little window up on the taskbar, nothing happens.
    2 - I can not use WIFI because I don't get a list of nearby providers.
    3 - Most of the 'settings' pages don't appear.
    4 - When I try to update Windows, the update gets downloaded but are not being implemented in any way
    5 - When I try to restore to the factory settings W10 crashes.
    6 - When I try to download W10 in order to completelely re-install it, it gets downloaded, the install procedure starts up and gives the all-clear, my computer crashes at 92% and after rebooting it says that all the changes made will be undone so I'm back at square one.
    7 - W10 third-party software does not at all or hardly works. (Canon Utilities for instance) Not even when it is specifically written for W10/64-bit.
    8 - The problem solver has never been able to identify any problem, let alone solve it.

    This is just a small part of my usual frustrations because I can not use my laptop due to its constant failure. And the daily rage it produces is killing me, my friends and family on a daily base. I even can not get rid of W10 because it's somehow interwoven with the BIOS so (according to the selling company) I can not re-partition or even re-format the main drive in order to freshly install Windows 7.
    In fact, I can't install any alternative for W10, so I'm stuck with an expensive, yet totally corrupted and failing laptop.
    I would like to show some screenshots but I can't because this feature also doesn't work.
    Any suggestions, apart from buying a big ax to satisfactorily reduce my laptop to a pile of very small parts?

    Thank you, also on behalf of my (ex-) friends and loved ones,
    Frank Heuvelman, the Netherlands.

    Additional info:
    Operating system: Windows Ten, Home Edition.
    Version: 10.0.18362 Build 18362.
    Computer: Acer Asphire A315-51
    BIOS Version: 3.0 /UEFI modus.

    Total Failure to Install Windows 10

    I had this same issue trying to upgrade an 8.1 installation, and reading this post (good stuff Andre Da Costa, others, thanks) along with other browsing, due to the various suggestions I took the following steps:

    • ensured the CPU/BIOS had PAE, NX, SSE2 enabled
    • system updates, non-essential apps removed, run CCleaner again
    • closed all open apps and disabled them from starting on reboot
    • disabled all non-MS automatic-start services
    • expanded the hidden/private system reserved partition - I bet this is essential, I couldn't get out of the install without doing this the first time (expanded from 297 to 350). For future attempts I expanded it to almost 1 GB and it used >400, so this tweak
      seems essential for any chance at success
    • disconnected from the internet
    • disconnected peripherals except USB mouse and keyboard (and not via a USB hub, instead plugged directly into PC)
    • cleared out Windows\Prefetch and {user}\appdata\local\temp folders
    None of that worked. The same thing would happen ('first phase, data migration' #fail).

    Steps suggested that I did not try:

    • disabling .NET 3.5
    • disconnecting the internal D:\ drive
    I ultimately ended up creating a new partition and installing to there and it worked. I should have done that in the first place but I didn't want to reinstall everything else etc. The clean install yielded its own problems but I wanted to report back here
    what I tried so the next person has the info. Thanks!
