Question

start windows stops

After updating from w7 to w10 (on AMD4core 64), both fresh on ssd, windows stops soon after bios - w10 shows some circle-dots and then these are freezing. After pushing the reset button the startprocess follows correctly, and i can work. Why this extra step, and how to solve this?

A little too little detail.

You may want to wipe the broken install and try again. Since you successfully upgraded and it failed after that you wipe, do a fresh install and then the usual drivers and restore your files and apps. Just like we do when Windows gets blown.

Unlike prior Windows, 10 updates then is good to go without a CDKEY like days of old.

Your post is light on detail. For example a friend had a 32GB SSD. That hung later and we had to do over.

more details

I installed a clean w7 (from disk) on a new SSD (Sandisk 240MB) and updated then there to w10.
Do you mean i have to do again a clean install of w7 on that SSD (wiping it of course by doing that) - and a w10update after that?

I'll keep it short.

There are now many articles about how it works. But in short once you upgrade from 7/8 to 10 and it connects your PC is marked "OK for 10" and no need to install 7 then upgrade again. Just install 10.
