Turn off "Fast Startup" in Win10 or enjoy discovering "Welcome to Emergency Mode"

Postby UgotME » Mon Nov 20, 2017 4:37 am

While this may seem unrelated to Linux, a Windows shutdown is no longer a hard shutdown and is in reality a (sort-of) hibernation mode. Leaving it checked won't always cause problems, but it will on occasion keep drives or partitions you share between Win10 & Mint occupied and cause mounting problems with Mint -- sending you into "Welcome to Emergency Mode"

Yes. The Win 8.x/10 Fast Startup feature copies the Standby feature used on mobile smartphones which gives a fast startup.
... M$ even extended this mobile Standby/Fast Startup feature to their Surface 2-in-1 touchscreen tablets with the Connected Standby feature which abolishes the backwards-compatible Legacy BIOS mode. Connected Standby = forever readily-connected to the Internet, eg to retrieve emails and chat messages.

Seems, Win 8.x/10 have morphed into a mobile OS, like Android and iOS, eg Settings replacing the Control Panel.

Notice that you mostly cannot DIY reinstall the OS on smartphones and tablets, except with an OS backup from the Cloud, eg iCloud and Google Cloud. So, it's likely that one day, Win 10 users will also not be able to DIY a clean reinstall of Win 10 or install Linux on your OEM desktop/laptop/tablet, just like for mobile smartphones = you will be buying new computers as often as you buy new smartphones, ie about every 2 to 3 years.

yep - it's true that the win-10 system is getting "more locked down"

ie: tried to install an older printer on v1703 & it wouldn't let me do that,
as the printer software was not in the M$ Store . . .
- so, I'd 'hacked / cracked' the v1703 with a CLI command trick, that then bypassed the v1703 security,
and bingo - there was the newly installed Printer.

me thinks, that it is all to do with the HardWare Manufacturers, who are the ones pushing those hardware upgrades.
