So I posted this about 2 weeks ago but I've been working a lot so I lost the thread.

Basically what happened is my computer updated and I woke up and it was stuck at 100% configured so I was forced to do a forced shutdown and then now my PC is just boot looping it goes to where it says Acer than black screens and just does it again im really not too sure what to do cause I'm not the best eith computers but if someone could walk me through it it would be appreciated

You can download the Windows 10 Media Creation Tool on another computer and create a DVD or USB flash drive. 

 

Please read the post by BC member jenae. It will describe copying your Registry Hives from the Regback folder to config. This will only work if the dates on the hives in Regback are before the loop problem. They also cannot be zero bytes.

 

I would advise you read it over twice before proceeding. This is for inaccessible boot device but the procedure is also used for a looping problem on an update.

Edit: This can also be done with a Hirens PE disk based on Windows 10. You can burn the iso to a DVD by right clicking and selecting Burn Disk Image. Once booted to the desktop browse to the following directory. C:\Windows\System32\config.  In that folder are 5 registry Hives 

 

Software

System

Default

Sam

Security

 

Rename then all with a .bak extension

 

After Renaming browse to C:\Windows\System32\config\Regback. Copy the five hives in the Regback folder to the config folder. 

 

Using Hirens PE disk may be easier for you than using the command line. Note. The Regback dates have to be before the problem and not zero byte files. 

 

It may be required for you to disable SecureBoot in order to Boot Hirens PE disk.
