    Win 10 Recovery Mode Loop - Need Help

    Hello peeps.

    Im new here and relativly new to windows 10 and have come seeking some help in regards to my windows 10 PC

    After installing KODI and downloading a repository for YODA from GitHub. My pc Crashed and went into recovery mode.

    I tried all the usual options available and they didn't work.

    I then on my laptop started to watch some youtube videos and reading other forums and threads about the same problem.

    from the youtube videos i tried most of the available solutions but none worked.

    I also tried one of the command console fixes.

    One fix was the CD regback command console solution.
    But i got 2 empty DIR . And no other folders to work with so this did not work.

    After trying everything i could i decided it would be best to install a fresh windows 10 using a USB

    Unfortunately my usb at the time was only a small 6gb so i couldn't do it that way, so i burned a cd. went into bios and changed the boot sequence to the dvd. All i got was a blank screen with a cursor in top corner flashing forever.

    I have now got a 16gb USB flash-drive and i am going to install the windows media creation tool and try this route.

    If this fails what are my options.

    How do i format my harddrive in install windows 10 again.

    Can i even buy a windows 10 CD.

    Im at a loss and don't know what to do.

    I keep watching videos on the laptop, but im a little worried that if i try everything i see on youtube i may end up in a worse condition than i am in now.

    Im here on this forum seeking any Foolproof methods to get out of the recovery loop.

    Any advice is welcomed and highly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time.

  2. Cannot go into recovery mode in several ways


    Cannot login into normal mode or safe mode or access anything other than Boot settings.

    • Do not get usual login screen.
    • Seeing Automatic repair and then BSOD with code 0xc000014c
    • That loop continues.
    Troubleshooting Steps taken:

    • Tried 3 times reset when in "Preparing Automatic Repair" to boot into recovery mode - Failed.
    • Created bootable WIndows 10 USB flash drive to go into repair mode - Getting another BSOD with code "Driver pnp watchdog"
    • Some times, after "Preparing automatic repair" screen, i get "Your pc needs to be repaired" recovery screen where it shows F8 to go into Startup settings. When i press F8, i get the same screen again in a loop.

    Please answer these question to assist you better.

    Are you able to Windows recovery environment?

    I suggest you to create a Windows 10 installation media and perform a Startup Repair on the device and check if it helps to resolve the issue.
    This is an alternate way to boot the device and run recovery tools when something goes wrong with the Operating system.

    Please follow the steps below to do Startup repair:


            • Insert the installation USB drive
              and boot Windows 10 from it.

              If you don't have one, you can Create an installation Media.

            • In the ‘Windows setup’ page select the ‘language to install’, ‘Time and currency format’
              and the ‘keyboard or input method’ and click on ‘next’.

            • Click on ‘Repair your computer’ and select ‘Troubleshoot’.

            • Click on ‘Advanced options’ and select ‘Startup Repair’
              and select the operating system.

    Do let us know if you are able to boot to desktop. Thank you.
