My friend's laptop is unfortunately stuck in the automatic repair loop. We've tried using command prompt lines bootrec and chkdsk on C drive, but so far no luck.
It displays a message saying it couldn't repair the system and mentions this path: C:\windows\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt
His laptop has an SSD, an considering the chkdsk command did not find any bad files in the C drive, maybe there could be an issue with the SSD?
Currently, he doesn't have any back-up of his files or a recovery drive, so that's why I'm hoping to find an alternative way to make the laptop bootable again.
Edit: We figured out System32 was installed on drive X, but when trying to run checkdisk, it gives a message saying: 'Windows cannot run disk check on this volume because it is write protected' or something similar. Any way to get around this?
Hopefully someone can help!
