    I got an endless loop of automatic repair after a power trip


    Long story short, it was storming and the power trip, luckily nothing got fried but the OS seems to have been corrupted from an improper shutdown.

    What's happening:
    • Bios splash screen loop (probably from trying to load up the os, which then disappeared)
    • Automatic Repair loop
    I've tried the following but it keeps coming back to the repair screen
    • Normally continuing to Windows 10 startup
    • Booting into safe mode (with networking, with elevated cmd prompt)
    • Restoring a previous restore point (most recent May 16th, failed too)
    • Restoring to a previous version of Windows (failed)
    • Resetting the PC (both keeping files & without files)

    So far all of these options that I've tried have failed and instead brought me back to the repair options
    I'm already downloading a linux USB installer to grab my files and a fresh Windows 10 installer to start again but I was very much hoping to save it to not go through a fresh install

    Any recommendations will be highly appreciated, thanks!

    :)
     

  2. Stopcode automatic repair endless loop.

    I am unable to start up in safe mode. I go through the process to either by the automatic repair or even by dos prompt and it will reboot but then say "my PC ran into an unexpected problem and has to restart" it will then reboot and go straight to the
    automatic repair. Hence the endless loop

  3. 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.
