A recent update (KB3105208) is causing hundreds of users to see the dreaded ‘Blue Screen of Death’ (BSOD) on their PCs running the Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10565. The issues appears to be affecting those users running this latest Insider Preview build and have Secure Boot/UEFI enabled.

Microsoft’s Support Engineer Jesinta Rozario suggested a fix for users, stating that:

After checking your log its clear that automatic repair will throw this error and system restore may not work.

I would suggest you click on Advanced Options and see what options do you have their. If you see an option as UEFI Firmware Settings I would suggest you follow the steps.

Step 1: Click on UEFI Firmware Settings and then click on Restart.

Step 2: You will be redirected to BIOS Settings, expand Secure Boot.

Step 3: Click on Secure Boot Enable.

Step 4: Click on Disabled.

Step 5: Click Yes when the prompt appears and then click on Apply.

If you do not see UEFI Firmware Settings in Advanced Option, then restart your system and at the Manufacturer’s logo display click on Del key (it may be either F2 or F1 keys as well but may even vary depending on the Manufacturer). Once you are able to enter BIOS Settings, follow from Step 2.

Disclaimer: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

Microsoft has since pulled the KB3105208 update until the issues are resolved.
