Windows 10: How to fix 0xc000021a, BSOD?
Sorry for leading in wrong direction but I myself added drive letter in disk management to show the files to you. I did this because this drive would be available during windows 10 recovery options command prompt. So I got suspicious. Now I was running seatools for dos. When long test was running at about 11% I went have lunch. When I had just returned after about 10 minutes The PC have a continuous sound[Like UPS gives during overload] and everything on screen was messed up. The previously top appearance was missing, selected drive information dragged till top end having only repeated DST is supported or not or something. And screen had sorts of glitch[as if certain pins in monitor's plug had broken] having short lines of 0s and junk. Unfortunately I was too scared to take a pic and rebooted directly[Pressed CPU button once]. PC rebooted and loaded seatools for dos again . Now again I am running long test. This time it is at 40% now. Longer time than last time has passed.
Update: Passed so I think its irrelevent.
Also can lack of free space cause it?[Storage pic in earlier post]
Thx again for info.

SeaTools for DOS Long tests
I will do next test tonight or tommorow.
How long will it take for
Chkdsk could take several hours, and it may look like it hangs but it isn't hanging, just wait and let it finish.
I have a problem. No mention of wininit in event viewer(chkdsk too old).
So I used powershell command which initially failed to find path.Then I removed "/Desktop" from path which resulted in CHKDSKResults.txt file which is blank. What do I do?
Note: I ran command for C: partition(Windows 10).
If wininit isn't present and chkdsk is too old, then the question is if chkdsk finished properly?
I don't know(Sorry).
It was stuck 31%(normal I found out) so I left it alone and the next time I saw it the usual BSOD , automatic system repair failed screen was there.
Also the link that was given says procedure is for OS till Windows 8 only. Is there a different method to check chkdsk log in Windows 10?
Also the PC rebooted once or twice after due to BSOD. Do you think chkdsk log got deleted because of this?
Thx again for quick replies.
You can export the event in eventviewer directly.
The log won't ever get deleted, unless you tell a program to delete it (like in Ccleaner).
If no log exists, chkdsk could not finish properly and didn't write a log.
Heres the whole Application set(compressed txt). I know its not useful. Maybe someone can salvage something.
And I didn't use any cleaner. What should I do now?

All I can currently suggest is to run chkdsk again in command prompt with the /r switch.
on C partition(OS partition)-100GB from recovery options command prompt. It took about 2 hours. Also one weird thing about my cmd is that it doesn't ask for login details which I saw in many online videos(I wonder why?). Please respond.
Also I can't keep PC on for longer than 5 hours continuous now(Not technical but personal(EXAMS and Electricity bill)reason).
Hopefully I can resolve this... I've tried everything to sort this out but nothing so far has yielded any positive results.
I cannot boot my Win 10 Pro at all. All efforts result in the error C00021a. We can go into what I've done...
I have a friends PC (C2D 8400, Intel x38MB, nvidia 660gtx, 8GB ddr3, 2xhdd in raid 0) with Win10
Everything worked fine half year until few days ago, updates installed fine and after few restarts BSOD 0xc000021a
I kept my computer on over night and I accidentally hit the print screen button. I have a special program called 'Greenshot' so it overlays the screen with a grid region selector and lets you drag and save. I didn't drag and save so I left it like...
I upgraded from W7 x64 pro to W10 x64 pro. Everything transferred the machine was up and running. I usually leave it running and let the power settings put it to sleep and turn it off. I noticed it was on and went to go look and see BSOD. Tried...
