    Windows 10 not booting - install log location?


    My Windows 10 laptop suddenly stopped booting, following my iphone.
    It booted up normally at first, with all the autostart(mostly win32) apps launched working ok, however Forza Horizon (a modern app) wouldn’t start (splash screen and crash to desktop). I restarted, and wasn’t able to get it to boot since.

    All of the options in WinPE (apart from the reinstall) were tried. Update rollback didn’t work. sfc found no issues, DISM didn't work in PE. Start up repair didn’t work. Safe mode won't boot either. Couldn’t find the ntbtlog after enabling boot logging, so presume that didn't work either. System restore didn’t work (0x80070026, failed to extract directory - renaming WindowsApps did not fix).

    I’ve recently installed iTunes 11 (win32) instead of the one from MS Store, as well as libusb and a minor update to a driver checker. System Restore also shows an update (25.0->26.0) for an update (KB4023057) - not sure if it affects anything.
    Could anyone advise what other ways there are to check the boot/install log from WinPE so I can try to diagnose what's the cause?
    Did I miss any options (apart from a reinstall) in my process to fix booting?
    If I reset (keeping personal files), can I re-import Windows.old (Appdata, Prog Files etc) and a registry backup to restore previously installed software?

    :)

  2. Windows 10 USB boot

    Hi there, am not a windows 10 expert. I have a pc in the bedroom on windows 10, I messed up the bootloader trying to fix the xp on that system.

    System wont boot, trying to repair via win 10 usb installer.

    Downloaded the media creation tool to install windows 10 installer on usb stick. Not compatible with a host of usb sticks I have. Tried the usb sticks that others use, but I think they use rufus; as the media creation tool by win 10 does not detect the usb stick.

    So quick question, the win10 machine i am trying to repair the bootloader is a win7 upgraded to win10.
    If i were to use the usb win10 installer to "repair installation" does the version of the iso downloaded via the media creation tool matter?

    There is three options:
    Windows 10
    Windows 10 Home
    Windows 10 N

    Also is there a step by step instead of using rufus as I want to try an alternative method of creating a usb win 10 installer. Preferably with more compatibility.

    System is a asus sabertooth 990 (r2?) with AMD phenom X 6.

    Also is there any other software I can load onto the usb that can repair the bootloader easily?
    That would be the ideal alternative. Thanks

    windows 10 slow boot

    I was having a slow boot issue on my Windows 7 install a little while back. It would take about 30 - 40 extra seconds to boot up for whatever reason.

    I would try following these steps, while this didn't solve my issue, it did increase Read/Write to where it should be.

    Looks to be similar to this: https://www.back2gaming.com/focus-story/ssd-optimization-for-windows-10-windows-8-and-8-1/


    In the end, I had to reinstall my Windows 7 entirely to fix the booting issue. It was taking around 35 seconds to boot, and after the fresh install it takes about 7 seconds to boot.
