Recently, some customers reported that his Hystou Mini PC could not normally enter the desktop, when booting up, it shows blue screen. After analysis, it was mostly caused by system faults and driver programs. As it is too cumbersome to remake the system startup disk, here we suggest a simpler system restore method to solve the related problems encountered in the process of using the mini pc. (Note: this method is only applicable to the blue screen caused by system failure, not work for hardware failure.)
Now let’s learn WinRE first before introducing the method of restoring the system through Microsoft’s own restore system “WinRE”. Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) is a recovery environment that can repair common causes of unbootable operating systems. WinRE is based on Windows Preinstallation Environment (Windows PE), and can be customized with additional drivers, languages, Windows PE Optional Components, and other troubleshooting and diagnostic tools. By default, WinRE is preloaded into the Windows 10 and Windows 11 for desktop editions (Home, Pro, Enterprise, and Education) and Windows Server 2016, and later, installations. Picture 3
Way enter WinRE (apply only when system cannot be logged in):
Step 1. Press and hold the Mini PC’s power button for 10 seconds to turn off the PC.
Step 2. Press the power button again to turn on the PC.
Step 4. Press the power button again to turn on the Mini PC.
Step 5. When Windows restarts, press and hold the power button for 10 seconds to turn off your PC or directly unplug the power adapter connector from the PC.
Step 6. Press the power button again to turn on the device. (repeatedly shut down twice within 2 minutes, and the third time PC will automatically enter winer mode)
After the restore operation is completed, the system will restart several times. You don’t need to do anything. The restore takes about 20 minutes. Below is pictures shows during the several times’ auto restarting.
