    Automatic Repair Loop, Your PC did not start correctly


    Hello! I've ran into a bit of an issue, I can't seem to boot into windows.

    My system is uefi, windows x64 1903 build and I am stuck in automatic repair loop and can't even boot into safe mode, automatic repair starts immediately after trying to boot into safe mode.

    I followed the steps from this thread: Unable to boot; 0xc000000f error on start, chkdsk found no errors, sfc /scannow reported no issues as well. However, I can't seem to use bootrec /fixboot, I get "access is denied" no matter what I do, /rebuildbcd and /scanos doesn't work, it detects 0 windows intalls, but when I rename v:\efi\microsoft\boot\bcd to bcd.old and use /rebuildbcd, it detects my windows as D:\windows (even though my windows was installed using the c: letter), but after rebooting I am still getting preparing automatic repair message and /rebuildbcd no longer works.

    Following further instructions on the previously mentioned thread, trying to backup registry, I noticed that my d:\windows\system32\config\regback folder is completely empty (however, files bbi, bcd-template, components, default, drivers, elam, sam, security, software, and system, are in the d:\windows\system32\config\ folder) missing default, sam, security, software, etc.

    I am lost here, I have no idea what to try next, I even tried using "Reset this PC" via troubleshoot, but that too gave me an error: "There was a problem resetting your PC. No changes were made." I even installed Kubuntu on a separate partition (now the default is windows boot manager), all my files are ok and seem to work, I just can't seem to boot into windows.

    What could be my next steps? I don't want to lose all my files. Any help is appreciated!

    :)

  2. Automatic Repair Loop

    Hi Charlene,

    Your concern regarding the device going into an Automatic Repair Loop can be caused by change on its settings/configuration or broken system files. To effectively assist you with your concern, can confirm if you've made any changes on your device prior to
    your concern?

    As an initial step to get back into the normal Windows screen, we suggest that you perform a
    Startup repair. The repair will attempt to fix any broken components/files which may prevent your device from booting properly. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • On theAutomatic Repair screen, select Advanced options.
    • Select Troubleshoot.
    • Select Advanced options.
    • Select Startup Repair.

    We'll appreciate if you can send us an update.

    Windows 10 automatic repair loop


    I was working on my PC last week and received the notification that updates where available to install, along with a countdown of an automatic restart. So I shut down the computer.
    1-Restarting the computer resulted in a blue loading screen with the message: Attempting "Automatic Repair".
    2-The Windows 10 blue screen loaded with the following message: "“Your PC did not start correctly. Press “Restart to restart your PC, which can sometimes fix the problem. You can also press “Advanced options to try other options to repair your PC”".
    3-Restarting the PC resulted in steps 1-2 repeating.

    I have seen other PC users complain about this automatic repair loop problem but no solutions. Anyone have one yet?

    FYI: If I boot with a USB drive, I can access the files on the Win10 disk with the File Explorer.
