    Windows startup repair loop BSOD


    I have Acer Nitro 5 AN515-52 laptop running 64 bit windows 10 version 21H1 (OS Build 19043.1110). My windows and drivers are all up to date.Here are my detailed system specs.

    Since 15 July, almost everyday, I have been getting a blue screen issue. This happens usually in the morning when I turn on my laptop. I keep my laptop on hibernate at night. The system gets into loops of Windows 10 Automatic Repair. I keep getting the message that "windows couldn't repair the startup", and then I return to the blue screen menu of advanced options.



    I realized that BIOS keeps resetting my boot priority to windows boot manager which results in this BSOD. I change my boot priority to my SSD and the laptop boots up just fine.

    Copy pasting "C:\Recovery\WindowsRE\winre.wim\System32\LogFiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt" in the box that appears after the run command (while my laptop is running normal) also results in nothing. I keep hitting enter key and nothing happens.

    What should I do to fix this issue?
    I am enclosing the latest CBS log file too.

    Here's the v2 log collector data.

    I'm NOT a BSOD tech, but it looks like you have two boot managers on two different drives.
    Maybe, post a screenshot of Disk Management, next time you manage to get into Windows.

    I would suggest that you delete the smallest 3 partitions on the hard drive, they'll be mostly related to the boot manager stuff. If I'm guessing it right, that should fix your boot loop issues. You might need to reconfigure the BIOS boot order once more.

    You can do this from within the disk management when you're in Windows, that's the easiest option.

    Also, please do not bump your thread. We have a special thread for when you're waiting -> Waiting for a response? (At least 24 hours) Post here.

    We do not want you to bump your thread, because if you bump your thread multiple times it looks as if you're getting help already and I for one don't always check all threads that have presumably responses so I can spend more time on others. This time I was curious though, because I'm always curious what others (non BSOD Team members) say when they post in the BSOD forum.

    Hello. The issue has automatically stopped coming. I didn't face it in this week. I do not have any partition. I have one nvme SSD (231GB) and one SATA HDD (1TB, eventually becoming 931GB) in my laptop.

    All the other partitions that you see in the disk management were automatically created and are invisible in the windows explorer.

    Okay. I'll keep this in mind.

    Careful what you're saying, you're contradicting yourself.

    Partitions don't become visible in Windows Explorer unless you assign them a letter, like how it's done with the Acer partition. Don't do that though, don't touch those partitions if you're not sure what you're doing as you could mess up the booting process.

    Oops, sorry. Yes. Those are system created partitions that I never touched.

    The issue came back again yesterday and today. What should I do to get this issue resolved permanently?

    Delete all but the biggest partition on the HDD, if that doesn't help I need you to rerun the V2 log collector and upload a new zip file.

    These are the partitions I have. How do I delete the small partitions on the HDD? They are system created partitions which are invisible in explorer but visible in disk management.
