    Windows 8.1 -> 10 upgrade BSOD(CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT)


    When upgrading to windows 10 my PC BSODs at around ~11% of the upgrade (copying files) with a CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT. I cannot manage to get the dump because it blue screens whilst updating and doesn't show up on BlueScreenView. If anyone could help with this problem it would be greatly appreciated as I would like to upgrade.I have not overclocked at all. Thanks for reading.

    EDIT: Attachment 64351 files required. Dump is not saved/doesnt show up when running the program, but the dxdiag and stuff is there.

    Without dump files we won't be able to help you
    Though I hoped the tool would get some dump files.
