I installed a legit DVD copy of Win-10 on an AMD machine that had been running for years on Win-7, but eventually succumbed to graphics-driver hell. Win-10 works OK (including graphics), but in the year or so I've had it, it has auto-updated itself into unbootableness 4-5 times. (It auto-updates early in the morning, and I find it unresponsive or boot-looping when I wake up.)
I did a complete reinstall once, but the last two times I just rolled back one restore point. However, it looks like MS forces the update on me again after a few days, and wrecks my machine again. (Fortunately, the rollback doesn't seem to rollback user files, so it's not as bad as it could be.)
Unfortunately, I don't know how to troubleshoot the failure-to-boot problem (it's not anything that can be fixed by
CHKDSK), so for the moment, I'm stuck rolling the system back a couple of weeks, every week or two.
- Is this a common problem that other Win-10 users are experiencing?
- Is there some way to figure out what the actual problem is, so I can fix it?
