Hi,

 

I have just managed to get Windows 10 to install on my Dell T3500 with much tinkering.

 

I now have the issue of windows 10 will try and boot, Get past the first screen, the screen will then go black for a few seconds then i am presented with a CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT error.

 

I have the latest BIOS and have had Dell on the phone running diagnostics.

 

Do you have any suggestions about what i can do to make this work.

 

Thanks

 

AMGeorge

Hi, AMGeorge;

If the case was opened please reseat all hardware: CPU, HDD cabling, RAM. power to motherboard etc. Even if it wasn't opened; check it.

One may have to reinstall and take care when installing drivers.

One may also boot from external media and disable installed drivers and possible boot entries that may be offending (usually the last thing changed).

Hi,

 

I have reseated all of the hardware, it has made no difference to windows 10.

 

I have Windows 7 on one SSD in this system and then have installed Windows 10 on a HDD, Windows 7 works fine but windows 10 does not.

 

Thanks for the suggestions.

I have managed to get it to work.

 

It took a full window 10 reinstall, and then it crashed a few times during set-up so a reboot was needed each time.

 

It took it 3 attempts to get through set-up and i have had a few crashes since it has started "working" but nothing major just system freezes.

Let it update fully and then we'll try troubleshooting. Make sure time and date are set correctly and don't disable too much until it is stable.

All that lag on new installs is MS communicating with machine; a lot of disk read/write and networking going on (even if one is not connected data is gathered).

 

Edit: Please create a backup image of the setup as is: Especially since the Win7 OS is healthy. If 7 is disconnected or cable select; make an image anyway. lol

Just to confirm: Installed 10 TP on a virtual machine and it takes about an hour and a half to actually settle in (on decent hardware - if hardware is lacking; it will take longer). 100% CPU usage, serious read/write on hard drive and networking like a bleep.

 Ensure the temperatures are within standard and nothing's overheating. This stop code is a result of CPU became unresponsive and remains in a deadlock situation. One of the CPU core could be faulty or faulty device driver cause CPU unresponsive and lead to BSOD. Install latest device drivers for components attached to computer.

Hi,

 

This can be a problem of unstable overclock.Either lower the clock speed or raise the voltage.It is possible that it can be a temperature problem.Try monitoring your temps .
