    Windows 10 endless loop reboot

    Hi,

    • Have you checked if the hard disk is set as first boot device in the BIOS?
    • Which version of Windows is installed on the computer?
    • What did the HP supported suggested you to fix the issue?

    I suggest you to follow the steps provided in the following article and check if it helps.

  3. Cannot change from windows 10 microsoft to local account. Endless loop

    Running windows 10 home on an asus T100 TAF tablet which is dedicated just for playing music and films in my camper van through a surround system. So I dont want to have to log in and out of the thing everytime it powers down. Yet I cant remove the login and exhausted all the available online guides, which must amount in total to many hours of frustration. and only made it worse by adding a password option to the PIN option.

    My tablet ended up on Microsoft account after I got through its setup. First thing the remove login guides say is to go back to local account. But I dont have my local password, because it got lost during all the confusion over there being two accounts on the tablet. Local and online !

    So without the local password I cant do anything. I cant change it in the old control panel user accounts or netplwiz, because being on microsoft account took away the change password options, referring me back to the newer settings interface. Which then wont allow me to remove the microsoft account without having the local password !

    How do I break out this endless loop ?

    Windows 10 - Endless login loop with Microsoft account

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    As you may already know, Windows 10 (as well as Windows 8) allow you to log in with a valid Microsoft account, instead of creating a local account that only works on your machine. However, you may prefer to keep a local account for privacy reasons. If you do, though, some Windows 10 features—like Cortana—may not work. Despite the default behavior, the Windows 10 Store is not one of them. You can still log in to your Microsoft account for just the Store without switching to a full Microsoft account. The process, however, is not terribly obvious. To do so, follow these steps:

    • Launch the Store from your Start menu.
    • Click the user icon next to the search box.
    • Click “Sign-in” from the menu that appears.
    • Choose “Microsoft account” and log in like normal.
    • When the “Make it yours” box appears do not enter your password. Instead, click “Sign in to just this app instead.”
