Hello all,


So recently i've run into a rather confusing issue. I run a windows 10 partition on my Imac pro and have been regularly using it for around a year now. It was acting up around a day ago (the game I was playing was very laggy & my internet connection was fine) so I restarted my computer. Windows started preforming an automatic repair and when it finished brought me to a blue screen that said "choose an option". I didn't think much of it and chose "return to windows 10" and booted back up into the windows hard drive, however it just loaded me into a screen where it said "preparing automatic repair" and then back to the "choose an option" screen. From there I tried everything. Both reset and restore options won't work. The repair startup/boot won't work. I went into the command bar and used various commands such as bootrec /rebuildbcd which did something however the commands bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot say "cannot find the specified file". I also ran a chkdsk command which did something for about an hour but when I restarted the same thing happened. I'm fairly uneducated with this stuff as I have been a long time mac user. But i'd appreciate any help I can get!

Have you just received the 1803 update for your version of Win 10 ?  And is it possible that the blue screen you saw looked something like the screen at the top of this link ?




This screen is only one of about five or six that come up in a  series when you install the 1803 update, it just happens to be the only one I could find an image of quickly. If it was the first in the series then you have to click one option or another and then click 'Accept'. It is the way MS have chosen to make sure users are aware of the privacy options.
