I get the Blue Screen of Death when update installs and restarts then it goes back to desktop. So far I have tried to install  the build 4 times it still will not get past blue screen can anyone help?

Update error windows 162881 Nr. 0x80240034

My Surface will no longer boot! I had to run recovery/reinstall, reupdated to the latest fast ring build and did it again!!! This built renders your drive unable to boot!
The same is happening with Build 16288 and 16362. I manage to boot with recovery tools and roll back to previous Build. Now I'm on slow ring.

I have problems with the colors of the screen.
they come out as spots

My Surface Pro 3 no longer boots after restarting. Automatic Recovery does not start either. Things were going very stable. @Brian Kirkland ... did you lose files/applications with recovery/reinstall? Was that with a recovery USB?

I ended up having to go into a Microsoft store and getting a clean install done of Windows 10 by an associate.  Then, I brought it home, and downloaded the latest ISO Fast Insider build to a USB stick, because as soon as I let Windows update me back to the the fast ring update, it happened again.  Thus proving that it's the Insider update.  Slow ring didn't help.  The slow ring updated to a version with similar behaviors.  They should, AT LEAST, test to see if your PC reboots before they release new builds.  On restart, it works fine.  On shut down, I need to use that USB recovery drive every time!

Hi there, having the same. How can I boot with recovery tools and roll back to previous?
Thank you
