Windows 10 black screen stop

I upgraded Win 8.1 Pro 64bit to Win 10 Pro 64bit through the app process.

I am periodically ( 2-3 times a day) getting a black stop screen with 'Error 1962: No Operating system found'

I have a Lenovo IdeaCentre 12 GB ram, I7 quad, huge C: with 1,5tb left on it.

ctrl+alt+delete reboots it so I can logon again.

Does anyone have an idea about that?

Another MS OS bug because of releasing the OS before it has been tested thoroughly ... MS do this with every OS.
That is why MS have so many updates and service packs ...And why Apple is gaining more and more popularity...

You may have the problem resolved by MS with a soon to be released update / patch / service pack.

Could be a problem with your HD or SSD if you are using an SSD. For an SSD install it's diagnostic utility, and particularly check whether it's firmware is up-to-date, if not upgrade it.

If it is a conventional HD, boot the PC using the UBCD and run the manufacturer's diagnostic utility on it:

Michael-best, the video is for the wrong problem.

Rindi, I made a UBCD about 8 years ago so I assume it has been updated. Do you have a link for making the bootable cd or usb with the UBCD iso?

The black screen has one line of white lettering with the error as described above. If I hit enter it produces the same line again.

ctrl+alt+del does do the reboot.

Event viewer shows an abnormal stop without shutdown but no more than that.

It seems to happen when the computer is left alone for a while, like the old sleep issue with previous Windows. I changed the power options to never and never so we will see how that works. It is a desktop not a laptop.
The link I posted above is for the newest UBCD download iso. If you extract it's contents, there is a directly (I think tools or something like that), within which there is a utility that you can use to create a bootable USB stick from it. Otherwise just burn the iso to a CD.

You called it rindi, the more it happened the more it became clear that i was having a hardware issue.
I looked up the drive (Seagate ST2000DM001-9YN164) and there are quite a few failures with this drive. Reports of running diagnostics seem to show a good drive and then it fails.
I am going to clone it and move this questionable drive to some non-critical duty.
