    Win 10 Boot doesn't quite get to login prompt - Please help


    Hello! I'm desperately trying and continually failing to get through to the final bit of booting up one of my Windows 10 Pro installations, but while there are no error messages at all, and everything looks fine, it simply will not show the login prompt!

    The details of what I've tried can be found in my recent thread here: How can I force Windows 10 Startup Repair to fix a non-default OS?

    (I closed that thread and marked it "solved" because I was finally able to perform a boot repair on the system in question, but it definitely did NOT solve the main problem of not seeing the login prompt).

    I need some more help, kind persons!

    :)

    Windows Edge still doesn`t work correctly

    Hi,

    Thanks for your ideas. I tried exactly as you said but it made absolutely no difference.

    I still can`t download, still doesn`t remember login details although it still asks me if I want the details remembered.

    Do you or anybody else have any ideas to help. It`s too late now for me to go back to Win 8.1 so I`m stuck with an os that doesn`t work properly.

    Thank you.

    Installation media boots to command prompt


    I've just booted from known working install media to see exactly what it does when booting. The sequence of events is...

    • Windows logo on a black screen
    • circling dots appear beneath the logo
    • light blue 'Please wait' screen with circling dots
    • a command prompt window (very briefly)
    • the initial Setup page appears

    Do you see steps 1-3? If so, it appears you have stopped at step 4, suggesting that something on the disc cannot be read.

    Does the disc boot properly in another machine? If so, try cleaning the laptop's drive lens then try booting from the disc again.

    If not, make new install media with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, either as a bootable USB, on an ISO that you can burn to another disc. At Step 8 in Option One of this tutorial you can choose between making a USB or an ISO.
