Hola @djmystique305 and :wpcm:


Are you saying that if/when you try to do a restart, it hangs at the Windows logo animation, but if you fully shut down, then power on, it doesn't?

If the issue is linked to 'Restart' and not a full shutdown it could point to a myriad of things!!. First look up the difference between the 2 power off options as they run completely differently the main one being that 'Shutdown' writes the Kernel settings to memory to allow 'Fast Start' to run where as 'restart' kills all services and also shuts the windows kernel down without saving settings so when it reboots it's fully clean start. 

This might help you narrow down the issue as it could be Kernel related or one of the other services kept awake by shutdown.
