This is my second Envy X2 detachable. The last one was upgraded to Windows Pro and after an update from Windowt was unusable. It would boot very slowly to the Hello screen, not recognize me and after I entered my password the screen was black and the start menu would not open. I tried ctrl-alt-del to bring up the task manager and there were no applications running. I was able to get to the Control Panel to uninstall some of the updates but it didn't help. There were no programs associated with any programs. I wwould like to use 10 pro but is there a way to avoid turning the machine into a paperweight?
