Can't boot after update

New Contributor

I have been running Windows 10 Preview fast on my trustworthy Asus U500V since it was released.


14 days ago my machine would not boot. There was nothing, only black screen. I tried every kind of repair. The systemfiles were still there but nothing got my machine up and running again and I ended up wiping the disk and doing a fresh install.


Today it happend again. I have reinstalled and I'm currently downloading Preview 17112.1 - again. Everything running smoothly so far.


I have double checked the SSD disks - there is two in an array, split in 2 partitions. System on one and data on the other. There are no errors on any of the disks.


Seems like something strange happened with the time though. I decided to save the old Windows installation. There are 2 old installations: windows.old and windows.old.000. windows.old.000 has a modified timestamp of 3/4/2018 2:32 PM, whereas the windows folder has a modified timestamp of 3/4/2018 5:50 AM and windows.old has a timestamp of 3/4/2018 6:00 AM. Now it's actually 3/4/2018 7:52 AM.


Has anyone experienced anything similar?
