Windows 7: upgrade to windows 10 results in repeating stopcode screens

upgrade to windows 10 results in repeating stopcode screens

At first after the upgrade to my existing Win7 the PC was usable for maybe half an hour before i left the room. Returning a few minutes later it showed a blue stopcode "system error" screen. Rebooting, the desktop only lasted about 20 seconds before another stopcode, then another reboot. More of the same. I've now reverted to my Win7, stable as can be. I have two guesses.
  1. the OS waited for inactivity before trying to download/install some update, then failed
  2. the OS doesn't "like" my dual-boot with Linux
I guess it could be some mix of the two, or something else. Btw, I'd be happy to erase the Linux from the system, just not sure how. This is what my C drive looks like:

Gene,

I assume that you are getting the (in)famous Blue screen of Death BSOD when you mention a Stop Screen ?

If this is so we have a specific sub forum for assistance https://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/ there are also some requirements for information that will aid the specialists in these issues to diagnose and hopefully correct the issues these instructions are here ... Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

If you can follow the instructions and post the data in a thread in the BSOD forum a specialist should be along to look at your data and hopefully help you with a cure

Thanks, I saw that there was a BSOD sub-forum, but thought this was different. I'll go have a look at the link.

Please post a Disk Manage (or Mini tool) image of the whole screen. Expand the columns so we can read them.
Previously to the Win 10 upgrade, was it entering Grub (Linux boot loader)?

Yes, the Grub boot loader screen was there on my Win7. It STILL is now that I restored my Win7 image. I don't remember now if it was there when Win10 was installed. I'm attaching my full-screen grab of Minitool.

This is what I would do.
- Make a disk image of Disk 1 and save the image to one of the other disks.
- Detach (SATA or power cable) all the other disks (2, 3 & 4)
- Boot into windows and with Mini Tool, delete the partitions after the C: partition. It will create an unallocated space after C: partition.
- Reboot
- If it doesn't boot into Win 7, insert the Win 7 installation disk and do a Boot repair.
- Once you're able to boot into win 7, "downgrade" to Win 10. Insert the Win 10 installation disk and run setup or extract all files and folders from Win 10 iso to a folder and run setup

Megahertz07 I already have a good W7 image I made 3 days ago, saved twice to 2 other discs, a good working DVD drive and a bootable Win10 ISO. Thanks for your process suggestion. Would you still do these steps if like me you had a fractured spine, a big heavy tower in a nook, and difficult access to the door and rear IO lines? Assuming I did the steps, my concern is if everything goes as outlined what about after I reconnect my other 2 internal drives? Would Win10 automatically mount and access them?

Megahertz07. Sorry, I didn't mean to be snide by asking "Would you still do these steps". What I meant was do you have a different suggestion that doesn't involve my spinal injury? And I''m still waiting for an opinion on what happens after I re-install the 2 extra HDs.

Gene, sad to say but your disk is a mess. It has Win 7, Linux and a recovery partition from Win 10.
So backup the drive and detach all other disks (SATA or power cable)
The right thing to do is to get rid of Linux and a recovery partition from Win 10 and then try a downgrade to Win 10.
And when installing Win 10 ALWAYS have only the target disk or you may end with the boot loader in one disk and the OS in another.

The instructions are on my previous post.

OK Megahertz07, the next time my system goes bad enough (last time was a CPU fan & paste) for me to have my tech friend over here I'll get him to do this, following your directions. Thanks!
