    This error message looks like reference to your C: partition (or system reserved partiton, or both) is broken in the BCD registry hive. Either of these partitions have moved, now you have a dangling pointer, Windows loader is unable to find required files, and so your laptop no longer boots.

    You can use Emergency Boot Kit to repair references to your partitions in the Windows Registry and, in general, fix this kind of boot problems:

    Emergency Boot Kit: Fix boot problems and reassign drive letters

    Start Mount and Boot Center from the main menu, make sure that partition which is supposed to be your disk C: is really labeled as disk C:, also make sure that OS is [x]-linked to loader, and finally make sure that loader is called by BIOS.

    Essential part is on the first screenshot:

    "Failed to read from file L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM: Input/output error.
    Consider manual recovery from backup copy L:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SYSTEM"

    L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM is a special system file which contains Windows Registry hive HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM. This file contains a bad sector, hence it is not readable. Neither by Windows, nor by Emergency Boot Kit (Mount and Boot Center).

    There is a backup copy of this file, which is automatically updated on each Windows reboot. It is stored in the file L:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SYSTEM. You need to:

    1. Move L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM -> L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM_BAD
    2. Move L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM.LOG1 -> L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM_BAD.LOG1
    3. Move L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM.LOG2 -> L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM_BAD.LOG2
    4. Copy L:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SYSTEM -> L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM
    5. Copy L:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SYSTEM.LOG1 -> L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM.LOG1
    6. Copy L:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack\SYSTEM.LOG2 -> L:\Windows\System32\config\SYSTEM.LOG2

    Do not delete old SYSTEM hive because bad sector may be assigned to a new file, randomly. It's better to leave it allocated to unused file.

    You can copy and move these files in EmBootKit File Manager (requires paid version) or using third party tools.
    http://embootkit-v1.prime-expert.com...file_intro.pdf

    It's very likely that when you restore SYSTEM hive from backup, Windows will boot normally. Otherwise, continue with EmBootKit Mount and Boot Center.

    Do i type these symbols in ->.
    Just got this from easeus HDD manager

    do I use the CMD prompt in windows repair troubleshooting options ?

    is there a file manager maybe Linux LIVE CD, where I could move these files around easier, or is that not possible ? Not sure why the partition is 'L'


    One other question if the pc makes a backup of this registry file each restart, won't it have overwritten the good backup with a corrupt one, or doesn't it work that way ?


    thanks

    UPDATE
    It Worked !!!
    ran Linux Mint from a us pen, then performed all the actions you listed, now back to normal, you are my Hero....
    Is there anything I need to do now ? If I don't have access to the emergency boot kit, as the demo only lasts so long....how else could I identify the issue.....or is it usually the same reg file and same procedure.....

    thanks again, so so so very much

    OK, I'm glad to see that my advice helped you.

    Emergency Boot Kit demo is not time limited, so you can use it to identify similar boot problems in the future.

    In general, arrival of bad blocks in your SSD is not a good thing, it may be early indicator of failing device. If this SSD is properly air-cooled and power supply is not overloaded (I've noticed you have many disks), then you probably consider its replacement.

    Where did it say bad blocks on SSD ?
    its only a few months old and not used very much, sits in a bay.....cant do much about that really...have 6 fans, so cooling should be ok....check Sandisk software and reports it's ok !!.

    also, you said the registry backup files are recreated each boot, so wouldn't they et overwritten with bad files, on a failed boot...?

    thanks
