    "PIN code no longer available" after a CHKDSK commannd


    Hi everyone! I'm posting here because after recover my dualboot installation, I tryed, because Windows was not working so fine, a CHKDSK command. This completly blocked my whole Windows installation (I also tryed to update before everything happens). I would like to be able to the DISM commands (like /cleanup-image and /restore-health), but the only acces to the command prompt that I have for now is from my USB stick, which doesn't allow at the most of DISM commands. From my login screen, the unique option I can see (except reboot and shutdown), is the one that asks me if I want to find an application on the Windows store. If I say yes, it just loads a moment, and nothing happens. I'm the only user of the Windows installation. I precise I also have access to the filesystem from my Linux installation, if any manipulation would be possible to resolve this. I also tryed from safe mode, but in my case it doesn't allow anything more than in the normal mode. I have a lot of software pretty complicated to install (like VSTs) on this installation so I don't want to have to do it once again, for this reason I would like to avoid a complete reinstall, moreover that this installation is a recent one. Thank you very much in advance for your help guys!

    :)

    Login-conflict: Use PIN-code - but PIN-code is not available...

    I have set up my brand new Lenovo today - scanning fingerprint and making a PIN-code.

    But now I can not login - the computer rejects my fingerprint, telling me to use my PIN-code. It then tells me that my PIN-code is no longer available due to a change of security setup on my unit. And that I can configure my PIN-code again through setup
    - which I can not login to...

    What to do?
