How odd... I posted a reply (it would have been the first here) giving a few links to how to boot not safe-mode; and also a general reference to a disk - which JohnW would likely suggest if/when he dropped in...

Seems to have disappeared - even though it "was" here immediately after I posted it.

Hi trvlr, maybe it went in the wrong post.

It "was" in this post; as I checked it to see if per chance "you" (and/or Derek had dropped across it whilst I was "composing"... As both of you refer to the Lazersoft disk on occasion.

Have to say it's not the first time I've noted a reply disappear shortly (if not almost immediately - and usually after another reply from whomever have been posted).

I've had it happen to me too at odd times. I've always assumed it was finger trouble such as not hitting the Submit button or something - still could be I guess.

At Windows 10 login screen, hold down the Shift key, click the Power icon and select Restart. Next go to Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Startup Settings > Restart > press F4.

Thank you all for all you replies. I tried to boot system in Safe Mode with all your suggestions but could not boot.

It did not allow me to run into any diagnostics mode, seemed the OS was faulty.
Thank god, I had my data backed on One Drive.

I have re-installed my previous version of OS and now it’s working good.
Rigorously waiting for precise Windows 10 OS.

Thank you all again.

Yes the safeguard data routine first cannot be over emphasised...

Anything that's really important - duplicate to a second hard drive too; or at least DVDR?

Have you run any form of compliance check on your computer to see if it is actually OK for win-10?

Yes, there might be some upgrade changes before you next try which will sort things. Clean install is always best but for Win 10 you have to take the upgrade path first to get the freebie. Thanks for the feedback.

I was of the understanding that one could download a full version ISO for win-10?

You can get the ISO but I think you have to do the upgrade first so that your setup is authenticated. After that you can use the ISO any time.

However the rules keep changing so a bit more digging might be in order.

EDIT:
Yes, it looks as if you can now do it with your previous OS key:

Although I would probably do the upgrade first to be on the safe side, then the clean install (belt and braces).

I think I'd be inclined to agree...
