Windows 10 Windows Upgrade Issue

#41
I have just managed to get the screen to show up on a different TV again and I got into the BIOS so I have set it so it boots from a removable device first and I will get back to you in a bit @kemical
 


#42
I can now see my screen, but I am stuck on a reboot loop still @kemical

Ok.. Did you try booting from the USB stick and running the repair as discussed?

@kemical i click on repair and choose to do it With USB and then it sort of restarts and takes me straight to setting up windows 10

Isn't there an option for start up repair?

Also when you bought the computer did you get a disk to return to factory conditions?
 


#47
I am not too sure I have had the pc for a while and I don't have the box anymore @kemical

You want the 'Troubleshoot my PC'. From there you can try to either repair it or reset if your stuck send in a screenshot.

I did that before but it just kept restarting me:( @kemical

This has just popped up, do I have to take my hard drive out to back everything up? @kemical

Hi Joel,
well if that gets you back to a working machine then maybe it's for the best. I wonder why your machine acted so when trying Windows 10? Anyway if we can help again at any time please post back.

Well I don't think that has been much help either, it has been saying 'restarting' for the past 35 minutes, but I will leave it for as long as it needs and if I have any issues I will post again. But thank you so much for the help so far
 


#55
@kemical I really don't think that it wants to work, it has been trying to go back to 8.1 for over 4 hours and there has been no change at all

Hi Joel,
when you first bought the machine did you get supplied any disks or a way to return the machine to factory defaults? I'm hoping you have a partition somewhere which has Windows 8.1 on it. All you need to do is find a way of accessing it and enabling it.
 


#59
Honestly I am not sure, but even if I did it would be no use because I don't have the box any more. And after every update I have had a 'Windows.old' folder, which can apparently be used as a restore point to go back to an older software version, which is what i am doing now @kemical

Hmm... I still think your going to need a disk but see how you go. Let me know how you get on.
