Intel Compute Stick STK1AW32SC stuck in "Undoing changes made to your computer..."

Hi,

My intel compute stick STK1AW32SC recently got updated to the latest Win 10 (as the previous version mentioned it will be out of support). However, the update was not successful and now it is looping continuously in "undoing changes made to your computer..." screen. It keeps rebooting every 10-15 mins and goes to this screen.

I tried to go to the windows recovery mode but cannot reset the installation. Tried to make a usb install media for Win10 32 bit in USB, and when boot to the USB, it is only showing blue screen and after around 5 mins, the stick shut down itself.

Any suggestions on how to remedy this?

I suspect there is inadequate space for Windows to perform the rollback.

Whatever the case, this is a windows issue (as it would be with any limited storage device).  Probably the best path is to do a clean install.  You did have a backup, correct?

Please insert Micro SD card into card slot and only then power ON your Compute Stick. This will add storage space and you should be able to continue with the update/recovery process.

I don't have backup, so don't have a restore point. I have tried build a USB stick with Win 10 32 bit installation, but whenever tried to boot to the USB drive, shows only blue screen and then it shut down itself after 5 minutes. Probably corrupt on the USB disk?

I used USB external drive when installed the update as it was requested to have additional space. So probably a micro SD card will work better?

Backups are backups, and restore points are restore points, and do not have much to do with each other.  You can make a backup of your data by copying your files to a stick, or sd card, or net location.  I am guessing you did not do this.

For you install media on usb, how did you create it?  Did you use this microsoft page?

I'm not sure that the Micros SD card will work better than USB stick, however I would try.

Thanks for the input to LWAKSMAN and AlHill, I managed to get it works again.

Eventually I recreate the Win10 32-bit USB installer disk again using a different USB stick, and insert 16GB MicroSD. The installer works now (guess the previous one I created was corrupt). Managed to finish the installer and now running the 2004 version of Win 10.
