    Can't boot windows 10


    Ok so my pc got disconnected from its power source and when I turned it back on it would boot to the part where I type in my password, lock up, and restart again. After the second or third restart it pulls up the BSOD with the options for repair, etc. I can only boot into safe mode (no networking), access the command prompt m, and a few other options. I've tried just about everything google has suggested.

    Edit: doesn't even show the login/password anymore, just my asus logo -> recovery options

    Hi, as a preliminary, check your disk, given the sudden power down.

    Download Kyhi's boot disk (top of the Software and Apps section here) and boot from that.
    As you can see from the above, a number of utilities are included. Try HDTune.
    If you wish you could also try Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) - portable- download it and run it.

    Please post the outcome. Thanks.

    Not sure why this was moved to the BSOD section - the OP is describing the blue Advanced Start up page that appears after three failed boot attempts.

    Ok so I downloaded the boot disk to a USB, it now gives me the option on the advanced options screen to use the device. I click on it, it tries to boot a few times, then I'm back to the blue recovery screen again.

    Do you mean you simply copied the iso to a USB drive? If so, that doesn't make your USB drive anything more than a drive storing a file. Certainly not a bootable USB drive.

    USB drive: see Option 2 here but use Kyhi's iso.

    Or- with thanks to @NavyLCDR
    To reliably make a bootable USB flash drive from an ISO file, insert it with Windows running, open a Command Prompt (Admin) and run:

    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk # <replace # with the disk number of the flash drive. Make sure to use the correct disk number!
    clean <this will erase the flash drive, that's why you need to have correct number selected above!
    create part pri
    format fs=fat32 quick
    active
    exit
    exit

    Then mount the ISO file and copy all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file to the flash drive.
    A really easy option - if your PC has a DVD drive- is to burn the ISO to a DVD.

    What sort of PC is it? No details in your system spec.
