    Wins 7 machine that updated and failed to boot afterwards

    Seems to be 3 Windows.old directories

    I have a wins 10 recovery disk and tried to go back to previous version - but fails

    Booting just stops after BIOS - no windows logo

    No bad sectors on the drive

    Done chkdsk /r

    Thanks

    I am confused about your posting. You say you upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10. And then it doesn't boot. How then did you find out there are 3 Windows.old folders if you can't boot the machine to look inside the drive?

    Removed the drive and plugged it into a USB caddy to read it on another machine obviously....

    Well, as I have not been able to find a solution, I have copied the docs from that installation and did a fresh install of Wins10 and copied the docs back to the relevant folders

    Sometimes there isn't an answer.....
