    Win 10 Pro Dell T3600 Won't Boot to Desktop, Goes To Advanced Recovery


    Computer was running fine. Thought I would run a scan on my SSD drive. So I made the mistake of right clicking on my SSD drive with the Win 10 Pro OS, selecting properties, and then Scan. It immediately went into a scan and repair loop always ending at Automatic Repair screen.

    I tried the normal tricks like bcdedit /set GUID recoveryenabled No but it stayed Yes anyways and wouldn't work on reboot. I eventually removed the right RAM module top break out of it and it now goes straight to Automatic Repair screen.

    I did a chkdsk /r and after five hours it finished successfully, no problems found on disk. Did a sfc /scannow and it verified 100% finding no problems.

    System Restore failed. So I ran a copy e:\windows\system32\config\RegBack\* e:\windows\system32\config as my Windows directory is on the e: drive. Copied find but on reboot straight back to Automatic Repair screen.

    Ran bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd
    "Successfully scanned Windows installations. Total identified Windows installations: 0 The operation completed successfully."

    Ran bootrec.exe /fixmbr
    "The operation completed successfully."

    Ran bootrec.exe /fixboot
    "Access is denied."

    I'd like to do an inplace upgrade but can't boot into Win 10 to run it. Any ideas?

    :)

    Win 10 Pro Dell T3600 Won't Boot to Desktop, Goes To Advanced Recovery

    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.
