SORRY FOR THE WORD WALL, BUT YOU NEED CONTEXT
So I did a system restore because of some program problems. (from 12/28 back to 12/22)
It booted properly and I updated all of my drivers, software, games, and Windows.
Then I installed VirtualBox for some development testing and powered off my PC to enable Virtualization in my BIOS.
I couldn't find that option, so I powered on my PC and it gave me this error "The User Profile Service Failed the Logon". Remember, I didn't actually change any BIOS options.
So, thinking it was just a boot error, I restarted my PC and it then said "INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE" on a BSOD.
I then tried resetting BIOS to default, but that didn't change anything.
So here's the situation. I have tried startup repair and window's default diagnostics. Both failed.
I've checked for BIOS options that would cause this, there are none.
I have an Ubuntu thumbdrive, and it can read and write to the Windows HDD perfectly. (I deleted VirtualBox using this, as I thought it may be a software issue.)
I cannot boot into safemode. It gives me the same BSOD.
When I run chkdsk /f /r /x (or any combination of those) I get "The type of file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive. Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected."
When I run diskpart, it lists all of my drives and partitions with their correct sizes and names. Nothing out of the ordinary.
When I list volumes, it has:
Vol 0 | DVD-ROM
Vol 1 | C | System Rese(t?) | NTFS | 350MB
Vol 2 | D | NTFS | 697 GB
Vol 3 | E | NTFS | 450MB
They're all healthy, I just don't know if C is supposed to say System Reset. I assume C is the boot partition.. since I boot to it lol.
I feel like either VirtualBox drivers messed me up (apparently this can happen), or the system restore corrupted itself. Though system restore appeared to be working perfectly.
I do a lot of development and graphics design work. And I have no backup drive, so I'm kind of screwed if I lose my data. I know it's still on the HDD so I can just back it up, but I feel like I can somehow repair Windows.
