    PC Won't boot stuck on Recovery Manager


    For about a week my PC will not boot and will only launch to recovery manager, after some attempts to find something such as an error code to be able to find some sort of solution to the issue I had got this error code,0xc000014c, it doesn't happen in BCD like most of the ones I saw searching with the error code instead it's in \WINDOWS\system32\config\system and the "system registry file is missing or contains errors", nontheless it will not boot.

    :)

  2. Unable to boot the PC, stuck in recovery mode screen​

    Hi Joe,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are unable to boot the PC normally as it is stuck in recovery mode.



    1. Were there any recent updates installed on the PC?
    2. What is the exact make and model of the PC?


    I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if that helps.



    Method 1:



    Boot the PC into safe mode with networking and check if you are able to login. Refer the article to

    Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10
    , refer the section
    From a black or blank screen.



    Method 2:



    Perform a system restore to revert the PC back to the state when everything was working fine. Refer the article

    Recovery options in Windows 10
    , refer the section
    Use installation media to restore or reset your PC.



    Note:
    Do not reset the PC; resetting the PC will remove all the data and installed programs from the PC.



    We await your response.



    Regards,

    Volume Mute Light won´t change color

    Which steps did you perform? Was this from a clean boot?
    Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste this command: shutdown /r /o /f /t 00
    It will boot to the recovery options or windows advanced troubleshooting menu.
    Click troubleshooting and click reset this computer. You will be saving files. Applications and programs will be removed. Windows will be reinstalled.
    Enter your windows logon password.
    You will see getting things ready with rotating dots.
    Click resetting this PC.
    It will then display the HP logo with resetting this PC with rotating dots and a percentage.

    PC Won't boot stuck on Recovery Manager

    How does Windows boot to advanced recovery option e.g. command prompt?

    - that gives me a 454 'Unexpected error' This tells me that the BCD is partially corrupted.

    The commands: shutdown.exe /r /o /f /t 00
    or: %SystemRoot%\System32\Cmd.exe /c reagentc /boottore&shutdown /r /f /t 00
    should boot into Recovery if everything is configured correctly.
    FYI, If Windows is configured correctly:
    1. If Reagentc is disabled, you still can get into Recovery but with limited options.
    2. If Reagentc is enabled, you'll get all options.
    3. If you boot Windows using Recovery USB stick, You'll get into Recovery with couple of options missing.

    Here's my suggestion if you want to try:
    OPTION 1: Will save the trouble of re-install Windows.

    1. Download the image of my first 3 partitions (450MB Recovery, 100 MB EFI partition, and 16MB unformatted primary)
      EFI_Boot-00-00.7z - Google Drive
    2. Run Macrium and restore the image from step 1, overwriting your existing 1st three partitions, leaving C alone.
    3. Delete the 490MB Recovery partition.
    4. From Macrium, run fix boot problems.
    5. Reboot. Open Admin command prompt then run Reagentc /info to make sure that it is enabled. If not, enable it.
      if failed to enable, reboot and try again.
    OPTION 2: Assuming you've already had Windows backup with Macrium.

    1. Wipe out the first 5 parttiions. (450MB, 100MB, 16MB, C Drive, 480MB)
    2. Fresh install Windows 10
    3. Restore C drive from backup image, run fix boot problems
    4. repeat step 5 from OPTION 1 above.
