    Has anyone experienced a BSOD causing the upgrade to Windows 10 install to revert back to Windows 8.1? I tried a few times and just after everything is complete and into its first boot to Windows 10 I get the BSOD. It tries twice then reverts back to 8.1. Does anyone have any thoughts? Nothing out of ordinary with my setup. Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    There must be 50 ways to get a BOSD. I think that is a song :)

    Without knowing which one was referenced in the message any comment would be beyond a complete wild guess. You might have a better chance of winning the lottery.

    I'm in the Surface Pro 3 forum, so my SP3...is that you meant? Thanks for any suggestions. There also isn't enough time to view the error code otherwise I would have written it down.

    How were you installing? In place upgrade or clean install? What was attached at the time of the install? If doing an in place upgrade what are you using for Antivirus?

    HI Jeff, I was doing an upgrade and am using Avast Internet Security 2015. I did not have my SP3 in its docking station and had run "setup.exe" from a usb stick connected to my computer. The install went perfectly. The BSOD's happen only after doing it's final boot into Windows 10. It tried twice and then uninstalls Windows 10 and reverts back to Windows 8.1, which is good!

    Two things, put the stick in the Surface to run setup locally and turn off AV.

    My thoughts exactly, I would in fact uninstall Avast and remove it from the dock....

    Followed both of your advice, uninstalled Avast and made sure my SP3 wasn't in the docking station. All is good!

    Thank you for the advice!
