My laptop won't boot past the Windows screen.  The black screen with the option to "Start Windows Normally" or "Start-Up Repair" is the one I'm getting.

 

If I go "Start Windows Normally" it doesn't boot and "Start-Up Repair" fails.

 

The error is: 0x45d.

 

Can anyone help?

Can you boot into the Advanced Boot Options?

 

After you press the power button immediately start tapping the F8 key until you see a screen similar to the image below or the attempt fails.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi

 

Please post the Model number and service tag of your Laptop.

 

If you recently installed any hardware or software post the details also.
