    hi all

    I install windows 10 Anniversary Update on my surface pro 3 all went well

    When it started up next day came up with the login screen I entered my PIN and it came up with the message.

    "This device has been locked for security reason."

    It suggested that I leave it for a minimum of two hours and kept the machine plugged in

    which it did then boot back in and the same thing

    so ok thought do a clean reinstall got to the bit to do pin and it told me there was a problem with pin (any pin) so I skip it then went in to settings to add it that way but no luck will not add pin can, still use password ok but no pin

    any help would be good

    Try to check for more cummulative updates at Windows update to see if something comes up.
