OK. Please do the following:Access the insydelH20 Setup utility again and then press the F9 key. You should be asked to confirm, so press Y. That will load default settings. After that, press the F10 key and press Y to save the changes and exit the Setup utility.Let me know if Windows will then boot properly.

Setting boot back to default but it did not work for me two hours ago that is why I contacted just answer
Expert:  IT Miro replied 1 year ago.
That's an unusual problem.
Since I don't have any other suggestion, I will opt-out and open this question to other computer Experts.
Once another Expert takes over this question, you will be notified.
I am sorry I couldn't help you more!
