Hi, I'm kind of at the end of my tether having tried various solutions over the web to try and fix this problem. I have 2 x Windows 10 on my PC, 1 OS works and one doesn't.

 

The failing one will not repair, no restore points, Have tried SFC scannow, CHkdsk, DISM commands and fixmbr, fix boot commands etc.

 

Nothing seems to work but from my other OS i can still access my files perfectly fine - Answers to the quesitons:

 

· OS - Windoiws 10 64 bit
· What was original installed OS on system - Windows 7
· Full retail version - Received from University on Microsoft Program (Cannot remember exact name of it now)
· Age of system Approx 5 years
· Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS - Yes, about 1 year ago ish?

· CPU - i7 980x
· Video Card - 2 x Radeon R290
· MotherBoard - Asus Rampage 3 Extreme
· Power Supply - XFX 1200W

· System Manufacturer - Custom Built Machine

· Laptop or Desktop? - Desktop#

 

Thank you in advance for any help I receive

 

Edit - Just to add when the problem first came up, it just came up with a Windows 10 Blue screen saying File missing windows\sdystem32\drivers\EHStoRtCGdRV  with an error code of 0xc0000102 but since trying all said methoids above this screen does not come up anymore. When booting, it just goes into automatic startup repair mode and will always follow with a "Your system cannot be repaired" type box asking me to "Restart" or "Advanced options" - where you get restore, cmd prompt etc - Hope this helps

Since this is a dual-boot machine, my best guess is something in the BCD got messed up big time... have you tried this? :)

Hi thanks for your reply, Yes I have tried it. I tried it again in recovery just for arguments sake to make sure. after restarting it goes straight into automatic repair still and then "Diagnosing Problem" and then "Your pc did not start correctly" and gives the advanced options menu stating that sometimes "Restarting can sometimes fix the problem" - If Only! :)

Try disabling Driver Signature Enforcement and see whether if it helps. That will not be a permanent fix either. BTW, is your other copy of Windows 10 on a separate drive?

Apologies to waste your time but I have reformatted as I lost my patience with the machine - Appreciate the time you've given

No problem at all. :) If that were my own computer, I'd do that as well. :thumbup2:
