    Hi guys,
    Just installed some windows 10 inside preview update (not a new build as I'm already on the latest build) this morning and something went wrong during the installation. I keep getting the BSOD and automatic repair just keeps asking me to restart or try advanced options. Both of these still don't help.
    Any ideas what I should do? Thanks

    Advanced Boot....Safe boot and see if it will let you in

    Thanks for your always prompt response Jeff. Choosing advanced option kept bring up a blue screen. This last time I've got to the reset your PC window, but it's such again

    Apparently something bad got out in the updates.
    Mine was hosed, too.

    Choose Advanced, then Exit to Windows 10. The updates will be rejected for now.
    I hope Microsoft corrects their error.

    Thanks Sharp. To late I chose to reset the pc and its already at 8%. Do you think I can abort the reset at this point without consequences? Being such at 8% for sometime now.

    I think you can abort that process.

    Yep confirmed, latest update cause a BSOD with the code PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED
    The only way to get out of this is either disabling Safe Boot or restoring to before the update.

    Greatest problem with resetting in windows 10 is the apps reinstallation. Takes forever.

    Uggg my restore point won't work, and Exit to Windows 10 isn't working either. What the heck did they release? Was it pulled already?
