    2 x Windows 10 on Dual Boot - 1 OS will not Start/Repair/Reset etc

    Hi, I'm kind of at the end of my tether having tried various solutions over the web to try and fix this problem. I have 2 x Windows 10 on my PC, 1 OS works and one doesn't.

    The failing one will not repair, no restore points, Have tried SFC scannow, CHkdsk, DISM commands and fixmbr, fix boot commands etc, tried reparing the image from a downloaded iso in CMD and RE. Really at a loss now as what to do

    Nothing seems to work but from my other OS i can still access my files perfectly fine - Answers to the quesitons:

    OS - Windows 10 64 bit
    What was original installed OS on system - Windows 7
    Full retail version - Received from University on Microsoft Program (Cannot remember exact name of it now)
    Age of system Approx 5 years
    Age of OS installation - have you re-installed the OS - Yes, about 1 year ago ish?

    CPU - i7 980x
    Video Card - 2 x Radeon R290
    MotherBoard - Asus Rampage 3 Extreme
    Power Supply - XFX 1200W

    System Manufacturer - Custom Built Machine

    Laptop or Desktop? - Desktop#

    Thank you in advance for any help I receive

    Edit - Just to add when the problem first came up, it just came up with a Windows 10 Blue screen saying File missing windows\sdystem32\drivers\EHStoRtCGdRV with an error code of 0xc0000102 but since trying all said methoids above this screen does not come up anymore. When booting, it just goes into automatic startup repair mode and will always follow with a "Your system cannot be repaired" type box asking me to "Restart" or "Advanced options" - where you get restore, cmd prompt etc - Hope this helps

    Same issue with me for the most part, I am also unable to boot into safe mode, unable to auto repair. I CAN enter command prompt and use "DOS" to see all the directories and associated files.

    A quick possible solution, download a Win10PE from this post, and use the fix boot option in Macrium which you may find in 'restore' tab.

    Apologies to waste your time but I have reformatted as I lost my patience with the machine - Appreciate the time you've given
