  1. Windows 10 boots to black screen


    Every time I power on my computer I get a black screen with a cursor.

    - I tried logging in blind, thinking the computer thought there was a second display, but it didn't work

    - I booted into a Windows 10 installation USB drive and selected "Repair Your Computer" I tried to go into Troubleshooting>Advanced Options>Startup Settings, but Startup Settings isn't an option. Instead there is UEFI Firmware Settings.

    I am currently unable to use my computer, and have been googling this for hours, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    Windows 10 boots to a black screen

    Hello, Many users are having the same/similar problems & if you can log in either normally or via safe mode the solution is to turn off use sign-in info to auto finish setting up device after update or restart in Windows 10.

    For Windows 10 (Version 1709), select the Start button, select Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, then make sure Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart is turned off.

    For previous versions of Windows 10, select the Start button, select Settings > Update & security > Window Update > Advanced options, then select the check box next to Use my sign in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update.

    Another potential solution is to remove any USB devices (wireless mouse, keyboard, external hard drive/s) & wait to see if boot continues, if not then to restart with devices still disconnected (if possible).

    Please fill in your System Specs.

    Also please confirm your BIOS mode. Is it UEFI or Legacy? This is one key information to deal with this issue. If you are not sure, you can take the help of Partition Wizard Boot CD to do it.
     
  5. I filled in System Specs.
    According to bios, boot mode is "Legacy+UEFI"

    That is why the confirmation is more required.

    Legacy uses a different partition structures and booting method than UEFI. The required steps will be different based on this little information.

    Please do the step #2?

    Windows 10 boots to black screen

    So it is Legacy mode. System reserved is marked as active but not having the boot flag.
    Windows 10 boots to black screen [​IMG]
    The C drive should be labelled and it should have the system flag. That is missing, too.

    What made the flags and labels vanished? Let us make it sure that it is not a virus. Scan your entire computer with Kaspersky Rescue Disk at first. If it finds any infection, kill them all.

    Which one is the C partition? It must not be the media drive and the FAT32 disk. Is it the 449 MB partition of the disk 2? It is too small for C. The other one, on the other hand, is too large.
    Please label the appropriate drive/partition as C. Then ....
    Set the disk 2 as your first boot device in the BIOS. Also in the boot tab of the BIOS, enable CSM. Disable Fast Boot.

    Rebuild MBR on disk 2. How to Rebuild MBR | MiniTool Partition Wizard Tutorial
    Then try to boot normally.

    If it does not work, Run startup repair for at least 3 times with restarts in between every single run.
    Then try to boot the computer normally.

    Let us know the result.

    Well, it is Windows 10 in Legacy mode, and here the 449MB partition should be active, not the 100 MB. Actually the 100 MB partition should not there for your case. I think it is a carried forwarded one form the previous windows installation.

    See how it goes. Let us know.
     
  10. The demo version won't let me do anything other than look at it. I can't perform any operations

  11. I downloaded the server version and I don't think I was supposed to. I'm gonna try the other one.

  12. The 449 Mb partition is incorrect. When I try to boot it says an operating system wasn't found. Before I made it active the windows 10 logo showed up before going to a black screen.

    I can't figure out how to enable CSM or disable fast boot in the bios settings either.

    Did you run Startup repair for 3 times after marking that partition as active?
