    All SIX Win 10 systems fail booting at login prompt! How and why??


    I have a main SSD Pro 64-bit Windows 10 installation and FIVE cloned backups on the same machine. But now NONE of them ever boot all the way to show the login prompt! They all look like they're about to boot perfectly, but fail to reach that final step.

    This seems extremely improbable! It would not be surprising if some boot virus or other malware spread to all the boot partitions, but I've scanned the living shit out of them all -- OFFLINE (i.e., connected to a different computer) -- with Avira Pro and MBAM, but they report NO viruses or malware of any kind. Also, there ARE two bootable partitions that DO boot perfectly: My main Windows 7 Pro 64-bit system and it's backup clone.

    Windows 10 boot repair accomplishes nothing, as always -- it's the most worthless piece of crapware I've ever seen, because it tries to be "smart" and always fails miserably by making stupid decisions.

    I'm all ready to install Win 10 from scratch, except that I utterly refuse to lose all 85 of my installed applications! I just won't waste weeks and months worth of effort in installing them all and adjusting their settings the way I want them. Fortunately, there is an application that can save and transfer all my installed applications, settings, and files: EaseUS Todo PCTrans. Hooray!

    BUT it can only work when run in a properly booted Windows 10 installation, which, as I've been saying, I cannot do!

    Please help me force my way into any of my six Win 10 systems by hook or by crook. PCTrans might even work in Safe Mode, which I also cannot get into.

    Little help, please? THANKS!

    Just a suggestion


    Can your system get to the Windows 10 recovery environment? If so you might select the command prompt option and run the "bootrec" command explained here https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/927392/use-bootrec-exe-in-the-windows-re-to-troubleshoot-startup-issues

    Sadly, that didn't solve the problem. But I'm always grateful for all replies! Thanks, Cookie!

    If you have access to another working PC then create a Macrium Reflect repair disk, boot to it and choose the option Fix Windows Boot Options - see https://knowledgebase.macrium.com/di...+boot+problems

    There must be a problem with the original system image you backed up.
