I bought a new SSD drive and used EaseUS Todo Backup to clone my system to it.
Being so happy and trusty I've formated the partition on the old drive. Swapped the drives and...
That caused a lot of problems.
At first the system did not even try to start.
So I've searched a bit and used:
bootrec /fixmbr
However, both the commands:
bootrec /RebuildBcd
bootrec /fixboot
Element not found.
So I typed:
bcdboot.exe D:\Windows /s C:
That helped a bit because the system began to start. However, with each trial it crashed to a Blue Sreen with this message:
A problem detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to zour computer.
Technical information:
Stop: 0x00000024 (and several other adresses of that type)
So I made an automatic repair from the Recovery Console from my Install DVD.
That helped a bit because now system starts... to the Black Screen with a movable mouse pointer.
So I've tried to fix it with this command:
sfc /scannow
Unfortunately the system returns, a problem here which is a pending operation:
There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete.
Restart Windows and run sfc again.
So after another several minutes of searching the web I've found this command and typed it:
DISM /Image:C:\ /ScratchDir:C:\Scratch /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions
It says that the command has been successful but after a reboot the
sfc /scannow
returns the same “operation pending" problem.
I'm stuck.
I don't know what to do now.
I have no problem with putting some dos-like commands. I was breed on that. But I don't know why the "RevertPendingActions" does not work.
The Black Screen of Death I have is one of the worst: I can't show a sticky keys popup. crtl+alt+del obviously does not work. Safe mode stops in the same black screen.
Please help!

A STOP 24 error...may reflect a problem with a given file...the file structure itself...or the hard drive itself.


STOP 0x00000024: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM Usual causes: Disk corruption, insufficient physical memory, Device driver, Indexing, Resident antivirus, backup, defrag programs, Disk/Drive failing/failure.
