Windows Insider First opportunity to update on the road. Attempted to roll back to previous build but don't remember my password, have been using PIN#. Though password of my MS account is same as network device (laptop), an assumption that has proved true before but may have just been my using the same password for both.
I have an endless green screen reboot, can't login, and can't get back to previous version. I would prefer not resetting my machine if possible.
Forgot to include this . . . Edition: Windows 10 Professional Version: 1709 OS Build: 10.0.17074.1002 Serial#: 6X9W832 Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-5005U CPU @ 2.00GHz Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500 System OS Type: 64-Bit X64 RAM: 8 GB
The rename of the file sounds like good advice. I remember now doing something similar in the past.
My problem now is being locked out of my system. Someone suggested resetting my password because my laptop isn't authenticating my access. Password worked for accessing Outlook and my MS Account, but I assumed the knew something I didn't.
Turns out the laptop has no way to see my new password because for some reason it is locked in [airplane mode] when I bootup in [Windows Safe Mode with Networking].
So I can't get into my system at all now because it can't authenticate my password and I don't have media necessary to reload from scratch. It came preloaded with Win Pro 7, I updated to 8.1, then took advantage of the free upgrade to Win 10 Pro 64-bit. I never have had media and can't find my USB or anywhere near I can walk to to get another one. I have to struggle through a meeting now without material because this happened before my regular backup.
I will check back for suggestions on a couple of hours.
