HP Pavilion HPE h8-1230z will not boot windows 10

HP Pavilion HPE h8-1230z
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

When the PC is powered on, it will boot to the screen with the windows 10 logo and stop there. When the Power button is held to force a reboot the PC boots up all of the way. This happens consistantly.

Is there a BIOS setting that needs to be chnage for windos 10?

the PC orginally had windows 7.

Welcome to the HP Forums 🙂 

I would like to take a moment and thank you for using this forum, it is a great place to find answers. 


As I understand the PC isn't booting into windows 10,

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, however, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details: 

Did the issue occur after changing the OS?


If yes, here's what you need to know:


I looked up your product specifications and found the OS supplied by HP was: Windows 7 and upgrading to windows 10 isn't possible unless you've made use of a retail version of the windows and I'm afraid that is not supported by HP. 


Unfortunately, I can only help you once you’re back on OEM, 

If you need assistance obtaining a recovery media, please Click here for the details.

Good Luck.
