Okay, I'll just run down what went down before the problem arose.
I am running Windows 10 with the Creators Update and I ran into a weird problem. This morning, when I was booting up my laptop (it's an ASUS X556UF) and I came across what looks like a black screen with the loading circle (the white spinning dots) and at first I thought it was just normal until after an hour and I knew something was up. The cursor is visible and when I pressed ENTER and hovered my mouse in some places I noticed it was detecting a text field (which is the password input for the user login). So I blindly typed in my password (the screen was still showing the loading black screen) and it was sucessful. I was in my desktop but all I can see is the black screen with the spinning dots. Now, the way I confirmed that the desktop loaded was I double-clicked on the area where I had some music files and hey, it actually played with audio. (Did the same with some games I had and the game loaded although the screen didn't change). When all this was happening, none of the explorer.exe elements showed up ( CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't even show anything but it's there since the cursor can detect the options by turning into the hand with the pointer finger sticking out).
Thankfully, I can access Safe boot (by using the power button of my laptop to put the laptop in the WinRE) but I still can't pinpoint the culprit. I've spent all day tracing back all the changes I made when it was still operational but to no avail.
Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Graphics Driver (NVIDIA 930M), ran SFC and the file integrity wasn't compromised, tried disabling non-Windows services on startup through msconfig, and I can't even do a Reset since it always says "There was a problem resetting your PC. No changes were made."
Any help would be appreciated, being stuck in Safe boot for all eternity is not how I want to go with using my laptop from now on.
It keeps repeating, this is the fourth time already from 100% it goes back to 0%
Is this normal or it means it has a problem?
I purchased a NUC for our home / i7 / 16GB RAM. Wife is a Professor at a local University so purchased Win 10 Education through the school. Created ISO, installed and it hung twice at black screen with mouse cursor. Did a hard re-boot and got to Windows signon screen both times but there is only a Guest account an no local account.
Tried signing in with my O365 account - but get the We are unable to connect right now. Please check your network and try again later". "despite having LAN and/Or Wireless connectivity.
I'm wondering if this is related to the Guest account issue and caused because the Education version doesn't allow a local or O365 user.
Tried fresh install again but never getting the create local account screens. System appears installed but cannot access as can't sign on.
I have a customized Windows 10 image built using audit mode (using the copyprofile true option in the sysprep file). The image deploys as expected, and every user has the same default profile that I configured on the image. My question is this: How, post deployment, can I now create a local account that can be used to update the default profile on the fly. In other words, if I want to make a change to the default account and have it propagate to all users who log in afterwards, how do I do it?
To give some context here, I have been able to do this on my Windows 7 images (created using the same method), by doing the following:
1. I create a local user. e.g. pcadmin
2. I login as that user to create the home folder/registry settings etc
3. I can then open the registry and go to HKLM\software\microsoft\windows nt\current version\profile list
4. I find the key for my new local account and then update the path to c:\users\default
5. I restart, and when I login as the new local account, I am mapped to c:\users\default. From that point forward, any changes I make in this account (desktop icons, browsers, shortcuts etc), are made to the default account, so every user who logs in afterwards will reap the results of my changes.
Obviously I have tried the above method in Windows 10, but it doesn't seem to work for me despite many attempts. Upon changing the path in the registry, any login attempt automatically signs out immediately. Is there another way to achieve what I want in Windows 10 Professional? Or can anyone verify that this should work?
Thanks for any help you can give!
