After having a Windows update about 2 weeks ago my computer has had problems starting, sometimes I had a little circle on the screen going around and around, so I had to turn it off sometimes more than once to get it to boot up.
Now, unfortunately, all I get is a blue screen with the words.
Your PC needs to be repaired the application or operating system could not be loaded because a required file is missing or contains an error
You will need to use recovery tools if you don't have a recovery media like a disk or USB device.
I do have a recovery tool that I downloaded to a USB and that gets me to an option to do a System restore, do a clean install or install windows without my programs and files that did not come loaded when I first purchased the computer.
I tried to do a System restore but it says that I have no restore points available? so I wondered if I could do a new Windows install and then use a Aomie clone of my computer that I have on a remote hard drive which I did only a couple of weeks ago, unfortunately, I do not have the bootable disk that I tried to make because every time I tried to burn a disk it got to 99% and refused to finish it off, I have just had a go with it to boot up but with no luck.
Would that be possible to use the Clone after installing a new copy of Windows and then be possible to reinstall the clone without losing any of my programs.
Any help would be much appreciated
