    Boot is stuck on "Repairing Disk Errors"


    Sorry if this is the wrong subforum.., it wasn't obvious to me that any of the others were more appropriate

    in another thread i referred to a laptop that will not boot - but here, i am hoping i can find a way to get it to boot without reformatting the SSD and reinstalling the OS.

    The laptop is a Dell Latitude E7470 i7 running Windows 10 Pro - just out of warranty...

    The history of the problem is this:

    some time ago, i started it up and got a "no bootable media" message. without trying anything else, i unplugged the SSD and plugged it back in. the machine booted fine, and has run fine for the last 10 months or so.

    then, a few days ago, i got the same error message: no bootable media, but that fix did not work this time.

    then, i started getting a different error message - something about looking to boot over a network.

    The SSD is fine - i can read it with a USB adapter on another computer.

    next, after googling a bit.., i got into the bios and switched the boot mode from Legacy to UEFI

    now, when i restart, i go into basically an endless "repairing disk errors" loop.

    i can get to the restore from backup option, but it says i don't have any backups.

    Is there anything I can do to get this working again?

    Thanks

    :)

    Perform the Startup Repair:

    • When your computer starts, wait for the manufacturer logo to check the option for boot menu, it will usually be

    • Restart the computer, when the manufacturer's logo is displayed, keep pressing the
      Boot menu option key to enter the boot menu and change the boot option to
      CD\DVD ROM.
    • After you boot your computer using previous operating system disc, a black screen appears with gray text "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD". Press any key.
    • Select the correct time and Keyboard type.
