Upon startup on my Asus Laptop it boots into repair mode with the following:
Application or operating system couldn t be loaded because a required file is missing or contains erros.
Error code: 0xc0000185
You ll need to use recovery tools on your installation media. If you don t have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.
Enter to try again
F8 for Startup Settings
Esc for UEFI Firmware Settings
Pressing enter gives me the same results, F8 causes the laptop to restart bringing me to the same screen, and ESC brings me to the bios.
After doing a bit of research on the winload.efi I disabled Secure Boot in Bios which did nothing.
Under boot options there is Windows Boot Manager and that just brings me back to System Repair.
I tried to boot the Laptop from a Windows 10 Disc, upon doing so it starts running the Windows Logo, loads a bit then a black screen appears and it sits there, it sat there for about 30 minutes before i restarted it.
Quite lost on this one and have no idea what to do, any help would be appreciated.
