  1. Preparing automatic repair on Windows 10 S


    I hadn’t updated this laptop Lenovo cloudbook - Windows 10 S: since the 14th of October 2020.

    Therefore, I updated it this morning there were 4 or 5 Windows 10 updates and this was done within 30 / 45 minutes.

    I must say that this LENOVO laptop has a bad flickering screen where I am in Estonia, anyway as it seemed to work much better when I was in Laos at the end of 2019 ..

    Usually after a certain length of time which can be very variable, this flickering screen gets to a near normal state. So, I left it on restarting now and then for 90 / 120 minutes.

    I restarted a last time before going out and the screen was not flickering a single bit. So I already was happy and I thought that I would leave it on while I would be away during the following 45 minutes to see if it would stay that way.

    When I came back, the screen was off! I tried to switch the computer on several time but all I was getting was the LENOVO logo .... and for 1 or 2 seconds only, the wording: “Preparing automatic repair” before the laptop switched itself off.

    Please note that in no way I am getting the blue screen with instructions to be followed as one gets with the normal Windows 10.

    Please let me know what is happening and how I can bring back to life this 1-year-old laptop bought from Amazon in September 2019.

    And obviously, it would be lovely to know how to only start it and to get to the desktop, or do I have to refresh it with the push button to reinstall most programs.

    Note that I am not into computer myself and that every move that has to be made must be mentioned.

    I thank you all in advance for your needed cooperation.

  3. Windows 10 random automatic repair after changing boot priority.

    Hello. So i have an Windows 10 Pro. Sometimes when i am changing in bios boot order from USB to HDD ( SDD ) windows starts booting with AUTOMATIC REPAIR and then restarting. Is this something with BIOS \ Windows 10 bug related? Tested on pc and on laptop , and sometimes it doing the same.

    Situation on PC first,listen:

    Few days ago after i change boot in UEFI BIOS from USB to SSD.
    Then Windows 10 showed at 1 boot Automatic Repair.
    When starting Windows 10 boot loader starts by "preparing automatic repair" and diagnosing pc.
    Interesting is that if I restart Windows (after procedure mentioned earlier) it will boot normally. This startup problem was occured only when starting system again after shutdown or restarted pc from windows.So i was needed 2 boots to boot properly to windows.
    But on pc, format was needed to remove completely issue and after format is fine.

    Pc :
    2x8gb Kingston Hyperx 1600mhz DDR3
    SSD samsung Evo 250 gb
    4790k stock
    Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark 2 with UEFI BIOS

    Now laptop with old standard bios:
    On laptop i made the same operation, change boot from USB to HDD and on first boot Windows 10 shows Automatic Repair. But it happened once and i cant reproduce. No format was needed.

    laptop is very old with 2gb ram

    Why on pc format was needed when on laptop not?

    Thanks for suggestions.
