  1. Computer won’t boot after “Restart to fix drive errors”


    I started up my computer after plugging in a new monitor and after a couple mins of it running fine it started to slow and the notification said “Restart to fix drive errors”


    The computer started to restart and it said it was fixing the errors. When it finished fixing them, it started a loading screen with 5 dots near the bottom of the screen. It sat like this for about a half hour before i tried to turn it off and on again. This did nothing and the same situation happened.

    Error Message when updating from Win-7 to Won-10

    Bree
    I followed your suggestions (2nd Aug 19) for installing Win-10. Made the bootable flash drive successfully through the media creation tool. But when I attempted to upgrade and activate to Win-10 (64 bit) from within Win-7 (Pro-32 bit), I got the following error message:

    Error # OxC1900101-Ox20017. " The installation failed in the SAFE_OS phase with an error during BOOT operation"

    I read the diagnostics under this error number and carried out the proposed fixes, i.e. update Win-7, uninstall Malwarebyte antivirus, disconnect all external hardware, e.g. printer, scanner, external hard drives. I then tried to repeat the steps to do the upgrade through the Win-10 bootable flash drive as before. Got the same error message.
    Appreciate any further comments and suggestions as to (a) what does a failure in the SAFE_OS during boot operation mean, (b) what can I do to solve it. Is this anything to do with the hardware in my computer? I listed these in my first posting above.
    Thanks for any help

    Hard Drive "Read Disk Error Ctrl-Alt-Del to Restart" on Startup

    I had the same problem, turned out to be a bad memory stick.

    This is what I found on the net, don't remember the site now, but for what's it worth:

    Computer won’t boot after “Restart to fix drive errors”

    PC Won't Boot After Install and Restart

    I was able to clear CMOS by taking out the battery and then putting it in after 5 min. That helped and i was able to boot, i got some kind of a checksum error and was given a choice to restore to last known good configuration or to default, i chose option number 1 and was able to boot into Windows, however after i restarted the PC i was back to square 1 where system wouldn't boot as before.

    What do i do now? Clear CMOS again and attempt to boot into Windows do a system restore and uninstall that program that may have been the cause of this problem? Any suggestions?
