    Win 10 upgrade now refuses to boot.


    I have a Win 7 HTPC with a ASUS F1A75 M-PRO mobo and a AMD cpu which I just upgraded to Win 10.

    Launched the process from Windows update applet, not the taskbar icon. All went well and the process completed without difficulty.

    Set up my libraries and joined my homegroup. I was having trouble with the taskbar not reappearing from auto-hide and the mouse cursor “getting lost” or seeming to go off screen. One notice that I received was that AMD Catalyst Center needed attention. Was introduced to a number of options I was unfamiliar with so I made no changes there. Before I could navigate to update this app/driver, the screen went black and has since refused to boot.

    Power on and I cannot bring up a screen with any recovery/restore options using F2, F8, F10 or delete. Win 10 upgrade on USB or DVD will not launch nor will a Win 7 rescue disc.

    How do I recover from this? I was intrigued by Win 10 but I now regret the attempted changes. I like to resolve technical challenges but this leaves me not knowing where to start. Win 7 or 10 – I just want my media player back. Any suggestions are most welcome and appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    As per the description, I understand that you are facing some issues using Windows 10.

    This might have occurred due to some third party application conflicts.

    Try the methods.

    Method 1: Start computer in safe mode and then perform clean boot.

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode

    a. When you hit the power button in Windows 8.1 (through Charms Bar), hold down the
    Shift key when clicking the Restart button.

    b. The next screen will present you with three options. Click
    Troubleshoot.


    c. Next, hit Advanced options followed by Windows Startup Settings from the next screen.

    d. Your PC will now be rebooted to enable the advanced parameters, which include Safe Mode as well. Once it restarts, you’ll get nine options whereby the following commands apply:

    F4 for Safe Mode

    F5 for Safe Mode with Networking

    F6 for Safe Mode with Command Prompt

    For more information you may refer to the article mentioned below.

    Windows Startup Settings (including
    safe mode)


    Step 2: Perform clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict.

    To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Putting your system in Clean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    How to perform a clean boot in Windows

    Note: Refer "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.

    Method 2:

    Run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe)

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. It will scan your system files and to repair missing or corrupted system files in Windows. To run the SFC scan,
    refer to the Microsoft article below.

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

    Method 3:

    I would suggest you to temporarily disable the antivirus security software program installed on your computer and check if that helps.

    Disclaimer: Antivirus software helps protecting your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable it to install other software
    and\or troubleshoot any pertinent issue, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you are connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to malware attacks.

    Hope this information helps. Please let us know if you need any other assistance with Windows in future. We will be happy to assist you.
