  1. Update automatically installed and now Windows will not boot and all known repair methods fail


    My wife's HP Elitebook laptop automatically installed a Windows 10 update today and now the computer is inoperable.


    It goes to recovery screen but none of the options work.


    The "Uninstall Updates" section works for Quality updates but fails for feature updates

    Startup Repair does not work at all

    System Restore sees no restore points at all


    All attempts at using command prompts produce no positive results. E.G. the bootrec tools work until fixboot, which will not work at all


    Similarly attempted the DISM methodologies and some worked but some would not


    Three times have tried "Reset" which takes a long time and then says "Missing some components" at about 85% and aborts.


    Then tried to reinstall Windows but it asks for a product key I cannot find - tried using the "wmic path softwarelicensingservice..." and that would not work


    Am at wits end. A Microsoft automatic software update has killed her laptop and made it inoperable and unrecoverable.


    PLEASE HELP


    I HAVE SPENT ENTIRE DAY TRYING TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE WITH INCREASING COMPLEX SOLUTIONS NONE OF WHICH WORK

    :)

  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.
