Hi everyone, as the title says I have two hard drives installed into my computer. After restarting the computer last night the bios load, then the ASUS logo appears in which nothing happens, it just hangs.

Every now and then it shows text saying "attempting repair" followed by "repair failed" and the windows install wont boot. If I launch my old windows install that is on my slow 1TB HDD the computer boots fine and I can see and access all my files on the SSD just fine so Im thinking something is wrong with the boot section from my SSD W10 install.

I tried system restore but that didnt help, booting into safe mode fails and I dont have access to a W10 disc to try to reinstall the OS.

Basically, how can I use the HDD Windows 10 to repair the booting process on my Windows 10 SSD install?

Not sure if it matters but specs are:

Motherboard: ASUS PRIME X370 Pro

PSU: Corsair HX 750

GPU: EVGA GTX 1070

CPU: Ryzen 7 1700

RAM: 32gb DDR4

HDD: 1TB

SSD: 500gb

If you have a Windows disk or USB with Windows 10 on it, you can boot to the Windows media (change the boot order in BIOS) and enter the Repair my computer then "troubleshooting" select command prompt. Type these commands in the command prompt box.  : 

bootrec.exe /fixmbr

bootrec.exe /fixboot

Bootrec /scanos

bootrec /rebuildbcd

 

I recommend unplugging your old mechanical drive, before trying this procedure. That way you won't make the mistake of selecting the wrong drive.

Hi Mason21, thanks for the fast reply! The first command entered sucessfully, the second said access denied, third scanned correctly, fourth asked for confirmation, when I said Y (yes) it failed but it seems the first command fixed it and I am up and running again! Thanks for the help, that fixed it!
