    Double boot to start Win 10

    Ever since upgrading to Win 10 I have had to double boot the computer to get Win 10 to start. When turning on the computer, it will boot to the screen with the small "Windows" icon on a black background and then stop processing. By turning off the computer and rebooting the computer will go through a full boot and become a useful computer. Is there a solution to this issue?

    How much time are you allowing before you power down and restart?

    What kind of hardware are you running?
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Thanks for your reply. HP stats.JPGHP stats.JPGOn some occasions I have allowed up to 1/2 hour before powering down and restart. I have noticed none of the activity lights are blinking but the cooling fan on the processor has gone to high speed.

    I have a HP desktop computer. Some of the specs are in the attachment to this message.

    From an elevated Command Prompt, run

    sfc /scannow

    Perhaps someone more familiar with DISM can help SalisburySenior. I'm at work and don't have time to dig through the various resources showing how to use DISM.

    Also, wasn't there a recent Windows Secrets column where an issue similar to this was discussed?

    Thanks.

    Try disabling fast startup. See How to Turn On or Off Fast Startup in Windows 10 for instructions.
