    Windows 10 unable to boot from ANYTHING! Linux will boot tho


    Greetings all... I've been researching this problem for over a week now (in Feb/2019) to no avail. The main problem is that the machine will NOT boot into a windows environment from any medium whatsoever. The only thing I haven't tried is a Win10 DVD, which I don't have one. I've been trying to boot from several different USB drives and the same problem just remains persistent : after splash screen and then circling dots... nothing. When trying to boot from HDD the win10 does a funky reboot and then goes to "Preparing Automatic Repair" (sometimes with, sometimes without circling dots), after a few moments it goes completely blank black screen with no further response. Then I have to do a hard power off. My TOshiba laptop will boot into a Linux partition with no problem unless I try to boot with a win10 install USB, which then overwrites the grub boot info. Easily fixed with booting from a Linux install USB, which works btw, but doesn't help me much for trying to repair win10. NOTHING WORKS. I can't even reinstall win10 because I can't boot into any form of a windows environment. Pretty sucky Microsoft.

  2. dual booting Windows and Linux

    I was wondering if theres a way when dual booting Windows 7 and Linux Mint, to have it boot Windows by default and possibly not show the GRUB menu, and if I press a certain key, have it boot linux instead?

    Is this even possible?

    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.

    Unable to boot the computer.

    Hi Samid,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    Before we proceed, we would require more information to assist you further.


    • What is the make and model of your computer?

    I suggest you check if you are able to boot into Windows Recovery Environment using installation media. Follow the steps provided below and check.

      • Insert the installation USB and boot Windows 10 from it.
      • 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’.
    Check if you are able to boot to this window. If you are unable to boot to this window, I suggest you to contact the manufacturer and check.

    Hope this information is helpful. Reply us with this information to assist you further.

    Thank you.
