    C:\boot missing


    HP Pavilion running Windows 10 Home
    I started a HP update which never finished, that is an issue for HP. Anyway after I finally powered down my laptop. Upon turning it back on it will not boot. I get the spinning dots and they never go away.
    I happen to be on a trip so I never had a chance to diagnosis the problem until now. I really do not want to have to reinstall windows as then I will need to reinstall all my programs and data. I started thinking maybe my MBR got screwed up by the HP update so I found some instructions on rebuilding it. In doing the second command Bootrec /fixBoot I get "Access is denied". I am using the Administrator account so I do not understand why I do not have access to this command.
    How do I rebuild my c:\boot directory as it is missing and get my PC to reboot.
    Any and all help is appreciated.
    I am going to keep looking for a solution and if I find one I will post it here for others.
    Thank you in advance.

    :)

  2. Why did the startup window get cleared?

    I didn't missed any step, the list was gone and gone , even after using lot of programs the programs were not listed in that list.

    C:\boot missing

    (cC:\boot missing :) (MIssing)


    Press the Win key+X and choose Disk Management and post a screen shot of that. Please select the (C) (Missing) Drive and select the button to configure the settings for this drive in the System Protection tab. Select the Radio Button to Disable System Protection for this (spurious) drive.
    The (C) (Missing) item on the list of drives will then disappear.
