    Win 10 won't boot after screen goes grey.


    Hi,

    I started the game today that lunch in window mode. When I tried to change it to full screen, everything went grey and after I reset the pc it won't boot properly. First I get "Prepering Automatic repair" then "Diagnosing your PC" and after that "Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC"
    Here is my SrtTrail screenshot

    There are troubleshooting options that may take substantial time.
    Would a reset save files equivalent be a viable fix? (reinstall drivers and applications)

    Find three flash drives that you can format ( > or = 8 GB):

    a) Kyhi boot rescue flash drive
    b) Ubuntu bootable flash drive
    c) Bootable Windows 10 iso flash drive

    Backup all important files using either Kyhi boot rescue or Ubuntu:

    I would rather perform clean install if the only solution would be reinstalling drivers and application. I hoped I could avoid this. Was looking for some Command Prompt "tricks".
    But thanks for suggestion.

    There are windows RE command prompt commands that can be tried.

    Create a bootable Windows 10 iso.

    The same iso can be used for a clean install.

    Post images of these commands and results:

    bcdedit /enum
    bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    diskpart
    list disk
    list volume
    select disk 0
    detail disk
    list partition
    detail partition
    select partition 1
    detail partition
    select partition 2
    detail partition
    select partition 3
    detail partition
    select partition 4
    detail partition
    select partition 5
    detail partition
    select disk 1
    detail disk
    list partition
    select partition 1
    detail partition
    select partition 2
    detail partition
    exit


    chkdsk /r /v S:
    change the letter S: to the partition drive letter displayed in bcdedit find "osdevice"
    This step may take several hours and typically displays ETA.
    Reboot as needed to run the command.
    Reboot after the command has completed to check the boot.


    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /scanos
    bootrec /rebuildbcd

    Please use a camera or smartphone camera to pictures of the commands and results and post images into the thread.

    I did almost everything like you wrote, except

    select partition 3
    detail partition
    select partition 4
    detail partition
    select partition 5
    detail partition

    I only got two partitions so I thougth this was not nescesery. I hope I was correct.

    Here are the results:

    Then I rebooted, but the result was the same as in first post.

    And here are the results for the last four commands:

    Again, reboot and same thing.

    BTW, I booted from USB stick with the Win 10 that I have used to instal that version of Windows. All the commants in command prompt was done int the command prompt from USB stick. Was this ok, or I should have use command prompt from installed OS?

    There are two Windows advanced troubleshooting menus: computer and iso
    The computer has more options such as safe mode, reset, etc.

    Often in boot failure the computer's windows advanced troubleshooting menu is unavailable.
    Sometimes using the hardware method there may be access:
    a) power on the computer and as soon as you see the Microsoft icon power off
    b) immediately repeat the same step with power on and power off on the Microsoft icon
    c) on the third power on allow the computer time to see whether it can advance to opening the menu

    Using the Windows 10 iso on the flash drive:
    type these commands and post images of the results into the thread (comments are in parenthesis)

    bcdedit /export c:bcdbackup
    attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s
    ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
    bootrec /rebuildbcd
    (if it displays total identified windows installations 1 it should prompt : add installation to boot list?
    (type: Y)
    (reboot)

    I can access Troubleshoot / Advanced options from computer without the problem from the beginning. Should I type all the comments in computer boot in this case instead of ISO boot ?

    That's what I get:

    The images displayed 14393.
    This is Windows 1607.
    What is the current windows build?

    If you can boot the computer to the computer's windows advanced troubleshooting menu see if you can boot to startup settings > disable driver signature enforcement > reboot> see if you can open safe mode or safe mode with command prompt

    The current version is 17134.1

    If I choose "disable driver signature enforcement" or any safe mode option I get the same results.
    This is how it looks:

    Please post the newest srttrail.txt

    Make sure that the only drive that is attached to the computer is the windows drive.

    Open command prompt and type:

    bootsect /nt60 all


    (reboot)


    Using the iso type:

    sfc /scannow /offwindir=c:\windows /offbootdir=c:\
