    What are the status of the important computer files:
    a) files backed up to another drive or the cloud
    b) backed up images saved to another drive or the cloud
    c) no backed up files or images > files need to be saved
    d) no backed up files or images > files do not need to be saved


    Sometimes there is registry corruption causing automatic repair loops.


    Boot the windows 10 iso > click in the left lower corner to repair > troubleshoot > command prompt > type:
    Code:
    bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled No

    reboot


    There may be problems with the reboot > take pictures > post error messages and codes

    Additional steps pending the error messages and codes.

    System Restore is disabled by default in Windows 10, at least on every Windows 10 system I've setup.

    To enable it,

    Right click on This PC and select Properties.
    Click Advanced system settings at left.
    Click the System protection tab.
    Select the boot drive then click the Configure button.
    Select Turn on system protection and click OK.
    Click Create to make your first restore point.
    Others should be created as needed.
    Okay, thanks for the help. The problem is that Windows doesn't start up and is stuck in an "attempting repair" loop, so I can't enable them (that's why I wanted to use a restore point in the first place)

    Okay if no restore points try uninstalling the last update(s).

    If he can't boot into Windows, how can he uninstall the last update(s)? Would be cool if that can be done but I don't see how.

    Tried uninstalling the last updates (both features update and quality update) and it says there was a problem and it wasn't possible to uninstall them... should I try with Startup Repair?

    The important files are backed up in another computer (I think most of them are at least). If I could solve this without losing all the files that'd be much better, but if there isn't any other solution then I guess they can be lost.

    I'm going to try with that command, that disables the automatic startup repair right? I'll post the results when I have them.

    Ran the comand and after rebooting got this message (in Spanish):

    Windows stuck in "Attempting repair" boot up screen-img_20200724_131323.jpg

    Translation:
    "Recovery
    The system needs recovery
    The operating system couldn't be loaded because it can't find a critical system driver or it's damaged.
    File: \Windows\system32\drivers\ndis.sys
    Error code: 0xc0000102
    Choose one of the following options to adress this issue:

    Press ESC for recovery
    Press ENTER to try again
    Press F8 for startup configuration"

    What should I do now?

    1) Click ESC

    2) Boot to the windows 10 iso > repair > troubleshoot > command prompt

    3) type: notepad
    (this should open notepad)
    4) type: notepad
    (this should open a second notepad)

    (plan to copy and paste command prompt commands and results > save to a flash drive > move the flash drive to a working computer > upload results into this thread)

    5) Type these commands:

    Code:
    bcdedit /enum all
    bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    diskpart
    lis dis
    lis vol
    sel dis 0
    det dis
    lis par
    sel par 1
    det par
    sel par 2
    det par
    sel par 3
    det par
    sel par 4
    det par
    sel par 5
    det par
    sel par 6
    det par
    sel dis 1
    det dis
    lis par
    sel par 1
    det par
    sel par 2
    det par
    exit

    6) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into notepad > save to the flash drive > move the flash drive to a working computer > upload into this thread

    7) On notepad click file > open > search for:
    c:\windows.new\system32\logfiles\srtsrttrail.txt
    c:\windows\system32\logfiles\srtsrttrail.txt
    %windir%\System32\LogFiles\Srt\Srttrail.txt
    srttrail.txt
    (save to the flash drive > upload into this thread)
    (if not found advance to the next step)

    8) type: bcdedit | find "osdevice"

    9) type: dism /image:M:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions (change M to the applicable drive letter for the partition drive letter seen in the earlier steps: partition=?) ( There is a space between \ / )

    10) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into notepad > save to flash drive > move the flash drive to a working computer > upload into this thread

    11) reboot and reopen command prompt if it does not boot to desktop


    12) type: sfc /scannow /offbootdir=M:\ /offwindir=M:\windows (change the drive letter M to the partition drive letter seen in the find osdevice command

    13) type: chkdsk /r /v M: (change the drive letter M to the partition drive letter from the osdevice command)

    (This may take time to complete. If the command is able to proceed it typically will display an estimated time.)
    (Plan to run overnight)

    14) reboot and reopen command prompt if it does not boot to desktop

    Thank you, I'm going to try this and will update with the results. Just to make sure, "boot to the Windows 10 iso" means booting from the USB? Or from the hard drive? I can access the advanced startup options (and the command window) from both now
