Linx 7 stuck on linx logo after Windows 10 install

Stuck on linx logo after update to Windows 10

I have a linx 7 and have attempted update from 8.1 to 10 twice through the windows 10 accessibility update (assistive technology). On both occasions (2nd time after resetting back to 8.1) the update completes but the tablet hangs after reboot and just displays the linx logo. Have left it both time for about an hour and the logo is still there.

So on both occasions I've had to use the reset image from the forum to reset back to 8.1 (which didn't come without its own issues).

From what I have gathered Windows 10 delete the boot option from the tablet and the tablet gets stuck in an endless loop.

I'd like to update to Windows 10 but obviously the last 2 setbacks have put me off. Is there any other way to use the update file from the accessibility update to update Windows 10 as I know you now have to pay for update.

Regards

Think I can get the Iso from Microsoft but surely if I do fresh install then I'll need a key. As I bought from eBay I don't have the key for win 8.1.

The key will be encoded to the bios. So aslong as the correct Windows 8.1 version is installed, it will automatically activate.

Can my 8.1 key still be used upon upgrade to W10

Yes, it should. Aslong as you do upgrade to 10, login to live then your set. You can then do clean installs and it will activate automatically.

Doubt it now as M$ has stopped free upgrade to Windows 10, you can upgrade but would proberly need to buy a key.

Shouldnt the key be imbedded in the tablet? The OS seems to install but on first reboot it hangs so switch it off then it rolls back to win 8.1 which still works but throws me an error about data migration. It was working perfect 2 weeks ago on 10 but some win 10 update ate my hard drive space and i tried to restore it to a restore point :-(

If you had 10 installed before, then key is not a problem.
Your talking about anniversary upate, its a complete upgrade. Mine fails in exactly same way, something I have installed it doesn't like so constantly rolls back. Which is annoying considering it takes around an hour to get to that point.
Im working on a custom ISO for mine, so I can do a complete clean install from latest version of windows (including latest updates). Thanksfully I install steam to another drive, so I dont have to reinstall all my games, :).
