To update what I've done.
To get to repair/recovery mode I had to interrupt the restart several times using the Power Button on my laptop.
# I tried Start Up Repair but it could not repair.
# Did a reset keeping my files/apps but after 36% got a "windows encountered a problem" message.
# tried to revert to previous build but it could not be done.
# did a reset/reinstall losing all my files/apps and got the "windows encountered a problem" message. On restart I got a black screen with the message that No OS found. restarted several times with same result. Fortunately I have my win8.1 installation CD and installed it. From File History, which is on an external drive I got most important files back by manually copying them.
I would like to try out win10 again as it was great while it worked but it is a bit scary. Though now is a good time before I start reinstalling my lost apps.
Any advice or thoughts on what I may have done wrong would be appreciated.
