  1. How To Run MSI From Command Prompt on Broken Win10 ?


    I have a broken win10 install and it seems to be missing the BCD.


    I ran across boyans.net utility visualbcdeditor and downloaded it to see if it could help me.


    It is an msi file.


    I am looking at the sick OS via a Repair Install USB I made. Tried all the repair options and all I've got left is the command prompt and whatever I can do with it and then it has to be a whole repair install.


    I'd like to fix this simple BCD thing if I can. So I went to the command prompt.


    From the command prompt I find the msi file on c: drive of the broken machine.


    And try to run it.


    I'm told it has no app associated with it and so it can't be run.


    It doesn't understand msiexec either.


    Any help?

    :)

    command prompt will not open in safe mode with command prompt

    Would I just follow the same steps within safe mode after hooking up to the other system?

    commands in command prompt


    Many of the commands one can use in Command Prompt go back to the days of DOS/Disk Operating System. An example of how to use switches in chkdsk can be seen by typing chkdsk /? at the command prompt. There's a number of Web pages about the commands found by a Search:

    How To Run MSI From Command Prompt on Broken Win10 ?

    Installation media boots to command prompt

    I've just booted from known working install media to see exactly what it does when booting. The sequence of events is...

    1. Windows logo on a black screen
    2. circling dots appear beneath the logo
    3. light blue 'Please wait' screen with circling dots
    4. a command prompt window (very briefly)
    5. the initial Setup page appears

    Do you see steps 1-3? If so, it appears you have stopped at step 4, suggesting that something on the disc cannot be read.

    Does the disc boot properly in another machine? If so, try cleaning the laptop's drive lens then try booting from the disc again.

    If not, make new install media with Microsoft's Media Creation Tool, either as a bootable USB, on an ISO that you can burn to another disc. At Step 8 in Option One of this tutorial you can choose between making a USB or an ISO.
