Windows 10 Shows Orange Screen with White Vertical Lines on boot

Posted on

Problem :

Orange Screen (See picture below) appears on boot after Dell loading screen.

  • Dell Inspiron 580 w dual monitors
  • Dell Bios is latest version (A07)
  • Nvidia GeForce 310 (Driver version 341.95 – latest)
  • BitLocker enabled with no TPM
  • Hyper-V enabled

Surprisingly, I can key in my BitLocker password at this orange screen and startup Windows… (O_o)

If I suspend BitLocker this screen does not appear; but after I enabled it, the orange screen comes back again.

I found these messages in Event Log, maybe they will be helpful:

  • (Warning) The driver DriverWudfRd failed to load for the device ROOTWPD000.

  • (Error) The required GPU resources could not be accessed. This server cannot run as a RemoteFX host without a GPU. Verify that the GPU is correctly installed.

Orange Screen of Death?!?

Aug 2016 Win 10 Anniversary Update Solved My Problem

This update fixed my orange screen on BitLocker boot screen.

Beware: Updating took a few restarts and about 2-3 hours on my machine.

Had the same problem and am posting for posterity. I  was especially perplexed since I don’t use bitlocker (Veracrpyt instead, open source, no one including MSFT will be able to crack the encryption).

Creating a boot from Media Creation Tool to a USB thumb drive and attempting to reinstall gave me this orange white striped screen.

It’s not until I used a third party USB boot creator (Rufus in my case, but probably others will do) that everything worked as it should AND I WAS NEVER ASKED FOR A BITLOCKER PASSWORD EXPLICITLY OR INDIRECTLY (orange screen).

I used windows media tool to create an .iso file, then Rufus to create a bootable drive on my USB thumb drive. Be careful which partition scheme you use.

Without thinking about it I chose MBR, which leads to having a non-UEFI legacy boot mode, which later caused an annoyance with Veracrypt.

But if you don’t care then MBR will work fine.

I had to convert my MBR partition to GPT to be able to use Veracrypt with a USB rescue drive.
