  1. Windows not booting


    Everytime I try to boot into Windows, I instead get booted into the BIOS utility. I have tried to do automatic startup repair but with no results. I have an installation media USB. Going into diskpart from the command prompt from the installation USB shows 2 disks, disk 0 (the internal HDD) and disk 1 (the installation media). Disk 0 shows 4 partitions:

    • Partition 1: System, size 260MB
    • Partition 2: Reserved, size 16MB
    • Partition 3: Primary, size 930GB
    • Partition 4: Recovery, size 800MB

    If I try to run chkdsk :c, command prompt returns with:

    "The type of the file system is RAW.

    CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives."


    chkdsk /f yields:

    "The type of the file system is NTFS

    Cannot lock current drive.

    Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected."


    bootrec /fixmbr yields:

    "A device which does not exist was specified"


    bootrec /fixboot yields:

    "A device which does not exist was specified"


    bootrec /scanos yields:

    "Please wait, since this may take a while...


    Successfully scanned Windows installatons.

    Total identified Windows installations: 0

    The operation completed successfully."


    bootrec /rebuildbcd yields:

    "Please wait, since this may take a while...


    Successfully scanned Windows installatons.

    Total identified Windows installations: 0

    The operation completed successfully."


    Please note that all of the above commands were executed in the command prompt on the installation media USB.


    If I don't have the USB installation media plugged in, I get booted into the winRE. I have tried every single option to no avail. I am looking to get my computer running without having to reset or refresh my PC. I just want to fix my PC and keep all my files. Oh and also trying to get into the C: drive by opening Notepad > Open does not work. It seems like the installation media can't see the Windows installation on my internal HDD at all.

    :)
