  1. Windows 10 Install Bug verified

    It seems if your motherboard BIOS AMD or Intel allows you to set a date of 1-19-3001 or beyond, Windows 10 1909 will not finish installing, but locks up during the second reboot during the installation process.

    Furthermore, if the BIOS date is changed, and you restart the computer in an attempt to complete the install of Windows 10, guess what happens next? Windows 10 freezes again and when you check your BIOS date, you’ll find Windows 10 reset back to the date you started the install. If you change the motherboard, then attempt to restart from the failed install, the install will once again set the incorrect installation date back into the new motherboards BIOS!

    So, after you’ve replaced every single piece of hardware even a new motherboard!, your BIOS date will go back to the install date if you keep reattempting to boot off the SSD/HDD.

    You must FIX the BIOS date FIRST, then restart the computer from the Win10 install media, clear ALL the partitions on the drive you want to install Win10 on, then start the installation process over from scratch. So long is the BIOS date is set at 1-18-3001 or earlier, Win10 Pro 1909 will install without issues.

    I made a video about it here. Verified on Intel and AMD motherboards both from Gigabyte, both using latest BIOS version. Some motherboard manufacturers do not allow the BIOS date to go beyond 2099. And for those people, they will never experience this issue.

    This all started when a customer decided to build their own computer using parts I recommend. They decided to save some money buy purchasing an openbox H370 HD3 motherboard from Amazon. They built the computer correctly. They made no errors. They tried to install Windows 10 and it kept locking up. The customer replaced the motherboard, the RAM and the CPU and PSU and SSD. After hundreds of dollars, many hours of frustration, they called me.

    Because the BIOS date on the openbox motherboard was set to 3029, Windows 10 locked up during installation. When the customer bought a brand new gigabyte H370 HD3 motherboard and disassembled and re-assembled his system, he tried to boot off the SSD with the failed Win10 install, which then set the new motherboards BIOS date back to 3029!!!!! Also verified on Gigabyte x570 Aorus Elite.

    Video demo here:

    Seems like three lines of code of Win10 could check the system date against the windows install file creation date to issue a warning to the user that could have prevented this nightmare!

  3. New install Windows 10 (issue solved)

    It's good that you're not experiencing any issues. Unfortunately many folks are, a quick Google search will show the same info im offering the OP.

    Heres a couple examples:



    It's basically what I mentioned above, small issues here and there ,but nothing to end your day.. for the most part.

    I know it's anecdotal, but for my experience 95% of the time it's perfectly fine. The issues I've run into wouldn't be enough for me to roll back , but they would be enough (had I not installed it yet) ,to avoid it for another couple weeks which is why I'm suggesting it to the OP
