Ok, If I missed any threads on this, bare with me.
I see many on internet with same dead PC's after trying "free" install of Win. 10
What I didn't know after contacting Fujitsu, they are not recommending Windows 10 on their machines.
I Downloaded win 10 dvd and started the upgrade two days ago. Sometime later I had a non-responsive
hunk of glass and plastic.....It seems to be stuck somewhere between Win 7 and 10, after it messed with the partitions. All I get are either the win7 or win10 repair windows.
My E752 laptop refuses to boot from DVD drive, with correct Bio setting or with the F12 button. Ran; diskpart
scannow, and checkdisk for volume C and D from Win. 10 repair screen. I get a choice on boot of win 7 or win 10 but only get repair and utility function. If shows D , does not contain a recognized file system, RAW,.. C said could not perform the requested operation.
Appears if I will have to remove the SSD drive, put in USB enclosure and recover it from my other laptop's DVD drive. Waiting for recovery disks from Fujisu ( $60) they didn't come with new machine???? One sata enclosure I have for HDD, not sure if it would work with SSD, manufacturer, Apricorn did not know because it's 10 yrs. old.... and new enclosures that say will work with SSD look to be inexpensive.
What I don't know is if the windows recovery disks from Fujitsu, can be directed to another drive or will they only detect one mounted on machine? Anyone know?
Only files the damaged machine will boot are Fujitsu's Recovery and Utilites, or Win 10 repair screens, all of which say drive partitions are scrambled. I've got graphics and pointer working on this recovery screen so somethings are still working.
Got to Cmd.exe on recovery page and did diskpart, it shows D drive re-formatted to RAW and an E partition showed, up which I never had. C is almost empty. Diagnostic cannot read DVD drive.. Tried to boot from Linux DVD and it started, then showed errors in finding graphics items it needed..But, now, will not even start to boot. Put a Windows 7 Home OEM, ( Pro was on dead machine), disk in and it keeps making ratcheting noises as if looking for something.. but diagnostic for DVD drive still throws 2206 code. "Suspected troubled part", Laptop in service since 1/5/16 and no trouble with DVD player before this..
Any help or insight on this nightmare,welcome.
