“After upgrading to Windows 10, I tried to restart my computer, but it kept rebooting. I have even shut off my PC by holding the Power button and restarting it. But, still, the problem exists. What can I do now?”

Even if you are stuck in a similar situation where your Windows 10 keeps restarting, no worries; this is a prevalent situation faced by many Windows 10 users after upgrading. Hence, here I will show you easy fixes that will help you eliminate the endless reboot loops.

Note- Before trying any of the methods below, restore your data from a Windows 10 computer using Remo Hard Drive Recovery software. Just remove the hard drive from the computer which has the problem and attach it to the working computer. Download the software on a working computer and recover all your data from Windows computer. The software can also be used to restore deleted pictures from Windows 10 with ease.

Workaround #1: General Method

  • While restarting your computer, press F8 until you get the Windows logo on the screen.
  • Once the boot menu appears on the screen, release F8 and select Safe Mode
  • Now, boot into Windows from Safe Mode
  • When Windows boots up, go to the Search box and type sysdm.cpl
  • Open sysdm.cpl from search results
  • Now, navigate to Advanced and select Settings under Startup and Recovery
  • And, uncheck Automatically restart check box
  • Click OK and again restart your computer

This is the first method you must try whenever you are stuck in a reboot loop. If this process won’t help you solve the issue, try the second method.

Workaround #2: Remove Bad Registry

  • Open the Run window and type regedit to open Registry Editor.
  • Then, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList;
  • It is better to back up your registry key to avoid any kind of disaster. To backup,, go to File and click on Export button. Please assign a name to backup and save it in a safe location.
  • Next, scan through the ProfileList IDs and remove any with ProfileImagePath found in it.
  • Exit Registry Editor

Now, reboot your computer. It might fix the endless booting problem. If not, reinstall the Windows 10 operating system.

I hope that the above-mentioned methods will help you stop endless rebooting issues on Windows 10. You can try this method even in other versions of Windows OS if you face continued rebooting issues on them.
