When I try and boot Windows 10, I receive the error "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE"
I was originally receiving the error "PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED"
I booted with an installation USB drive and tried startup repair.
I received this screen: https://i.imgur.com/L5O6bRi.jpg
I tried the command: sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\Windows
It returned the message: "There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again." The problem is Windows doesn't boot.
I then tried the command: dism.exe /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions
I received the message "The scratch directory might be insufficient to perform this operation. This can cause unexpected behavior. Use the /ScratchDir option to point to a folder with sufficient scratch space. The recommended size is at least 1024 MB." It then started the process and returned the error 14098.
Here's a picture of the command prompt: https://i.imgur.com/ZWJNyvk.jpg
I tried replacing the bootcat.cache file with one from a working Windows 10 installation and tried the commands again with the same results.
After replacing the bootcat.cache file I began receiving the error "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE".
Does anyone have any idea of how I can get Windows working again? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Edit: Log files are attached below:
dism.log 921.91KB 2 downloads
SrtTrail.txt 2.55KB 3 downloads
Something that might be worth noting is that the dism.log file was found in the windows.old directory, not windows.
