Remove all USB devices from your system.
Because of a conflict with a USB device, your computer may not boot up after installing Windows 10 updates. Unplug all USB devices (and any other unnecessary peripherals) and restart the computer to fix the problem.
If your computer continues to display the same loading screen, unplugging all USB devices may help. You may need to restart the machine on other occasions.

From the Windows Recovery Menu, select Safe Mode.

The Windows splash screen freezes on some unbootable devices.
You can force the machine into Safe Mode by interrupting the boot process three times in a row, which will start Windows Recovery automatically. When the Windows Recovery menu displays, perform these steps:

  1. Choose Troubleshoot, then Advanced Options, and finally Startup Settings from the Choose an option recovery window.
  2. You can reset the machine into Safe mode from Startup Settings, with or without internet access.
