    Multiple clean installs, New SSD, still going to auto repair loop


    x2 SSDs
    16gb RAM
    Windows 10 Pro (digital license) 20H2 from MS's Media Creation Tool
    Motherboard: ECS H61H2-MV

    After multiple (like 10+) clean installs on two different SSDs (one brand new), Windows 10 keeps going into an auto repair loop and is unable to be fixed by any bcdboot or bcdedit commands. Trying to restore the bcdstore is not going to work. I've tried so many things that it's dizzying. Going through the auto repair process will occasionally work, but when it does, it goes into chkdsk, repairs, then allows me back into Windows; except, when I get there, everything is mangled -- all the programs are messed up, even Edge is broken. So throughout all my attempts at fixing this, I've simply stopped going that route. But when it does inevitably begin to get stuck in the auto-repair loop, I've taken TONS of measures in the cmd prompt environment and nothing's worked. I've even tried installing in IDE mode and AHCI mode to see if it'd behave differently, and it did not; the same thing happens.


    I'm suspecting some hardware might somehow be broken. I've run extensive tests on the memory; all come back clean. When this first started, I thought it was the SSD and got a new one, and it still does messes up. I'm suspecting it could also be EUFI-related? So my next try is going to consist of switching to full legacy bios and reinstalling Windows for the umpteenth time.


    Can a power supply cause such a thing? It causes it in the same manner each time though, which is why I've been thinking it may not be power supply, but maybe it is??? Also, I thought that installing Adobe programs was causing it, but I haven't installed it this time. This time, it started the repair loop upon restarting even without installing anything by Adobe, so it's clearly not that either. I also suspected Windows updates, but this time, I hadn't installed updates -- still doing it.


    Any ideas? Do you think not using EUFI and going legacy could be the way to go? And yes, I've tried Windows installations during which I left the system/recovery partitions in place and installations during which I didn't. Nothing at all seems to work so far.

    :)

  2. Stuck in auto repair loop

    Hi Alex,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    If the screen is stuck for a long time on auto repair, I suggest you to restart the computer using power button and check. If the issue still persist, I suggest you to check if you are able to boot the computer into Safe Mode environment and check.

    To use a Safe Boot option, follow these steps:


    • Restart your computer and start pressing the F8 key on your keyboard. On a computer that is configured for booting to multiple operating systems, you can press the F8 key when the Boot Menu appears.

    • Select an option to “Safe mode with networking” using the arrow keys on the keyboard when the Windows Advanced Options menu
      appears, and then press ENTER.


    Hope this information is helpful. Do let us know if your issue is resolved. For any further query, feel free to contact us.

    Thank you.

    Automatic Repair Loop

    I'm having the same problem. I'm running the latest version of Win 10. It started looping in Auto Repair a couple of weeks ago not long after an update. It always can't repair it. I tried Start up
    Repair, Reset, it always starts looping again as soon as I reboot. Today I installed a clean drive, and installed a new download of Win 10 to the new drive and set it as the boot drive in the Bios. Immediately back to Auto Repair loop.

    Help!

    Multiple clean installs, New SSD, still going to auto repair loop

    SSD with windows comes up with auto repair loop but the disk is good

    Hi;
    I posted yesterday about a Windows automatic repair loop but didn't receive any answers so went ahead and reinstalled windows. I could not find a fix, even trying the reg edit and making a windows repair disk didn't help. Everything just went back to the automatic repair loop.
    The new install works fine. I then connected the SSD that has the automatic repair problem and all my info and files are there and accessible. I the tried to boot from the original install and surprise, surprise still auto repair loop.

    My first question is, can I save that windows install and use it again?
    Second question is does anyone know why the disk is fine but the windows install is cactus?

    Windows version 10.0 10240

    Cheers
