    Pc won't boot up after windows update froze


    So,I have a Lenovo Windows 10 PC,and today I booted it up to play some minecraft,and there was a windows update stuck at 2% for more than an hour,so i decided to restart my pc. But upon restarting the loading screen kept repeating infinitely,so I went to check why this happens and I restarted my pc with the diagnosis tool,soon after i'm greeted with a blue screen of death with code: 0xc0000135 and a "SrtTrail.txt is missing" thing. So i went onto youtube and searched for a solution. I did all they said but when I typed in
    "Bootrec /fixboot" it said "Acces Denied"
    "attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s" It said the path was not found.
    I tried changing volumes and partitions of disk 0 but I don't know which ones to choose. I cant reset my pc because I have alot of important stuff in there. Please help.

    Let's start with the following commands:

    diskpart
    select disk 0
    list partition

    What is the result?

    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>diskpart
    
    Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.19041.1
    
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.
    On computer: JOHN-LAPTOP
    
    DISKPART> select disk 0
    
    Disk 0 is now the selected disk.
    
    DISKPART> list partition
    
      Partition ###  Type              Size     Offset
      -------------  ----------------  -------  -------
      Partition 1    System             100 MB  1024 KB
      Partition 2    Reserved            16 MB   101 MB
      Partition 3    Primary            412 GB   117 MB
      Partition 4    Primary             64 GB   412 GB

    I should have also had you do list volume:

    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>diskpart
    
    Microsoft DiskPart version 10.0.17763.1
    
    Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation.
    On computer: JOHN-DESKTOP
    
    DISKPART> list volume
    
      Volume ###  Ltr  Label        Fs     Type        Size     Status     Info
      ----------  ---  -----------  -----  ----------  -------  ---------  --------
      Volume 0     E                       DVD-ROM         0 B  No Media
      Volume 1     G   Games        NTFS   Partition    433 GB  Healthy
      Volume 2     R   RECOVERY     FAT32  Partition     13 GB  Healthy
      Volume 3     D   Data         NTFS   Partition    931 GB  Healthy
      Volume 4     S   Storage      NTFS   Partition    931 GB  Healthy
      Volume 5     C                NTFS   Partition    173 GB  Healthy    Boot
      Volume 6     Z   Hyper-V      NTFS   Partition     64 GB  Healthy
      Volume 7                      FAT32  Partition    100 MB  Healthy    System
    
    DISKPART>
    But we will assume that your Windows is on C: drive in the command prompt so, what you will want to do to delete the existing system partition and create a new one is:

    Code:
    diskpart
    select disk 0
    select partition 1
    delete partition override
    create partition EFI
    format fs=fat32 quick
    assign letter=s
    exit
    bcdboot C:\Windows /s S: /f UEFI
    exit
    Now when you reboot you might have to go into your UEFI firmaware (BIOS) settings and make the new "Windows Boot Manager" the highest boot priority again. Many UEFI systems will detect the new EFI system partition as completely new and put it down to the bottom of the boot priority list.

    If the above does not work, there are a few possibilities:
    1. Windows is not on C: drive in that command prompt. The list volume command will tell us that.
    2. Your Windows installation is corrupt and you will need to either restore from a backup image or copy out what data you can from that partition and re-install Windows.
    3. Your drive has gone bad.
    4. Your drive may have gotten marked as readonly. The commands to determine readonly status are:
    Code:
    diskpart
    select disk 0
    detail disk

    And now this error pops up:

    Recovery
    Your pc/device needs to be repaired.
    The boot configuration data file doesn't contain valid information for an operating sistem

    File: \BCD
    Error code: 0xc0000098

    I cant access to the troubleshoot,because now I have a new BSOD. Code 0xc0000098,neither F12 or F2 with a recovery usb file works,the only thing that works is the UEFI BIOS. What do I do?

    You'll have to boot the computer from a Windows 10 USB flash drive:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/soft...load/windows10

    It's sound more likely you will have to copy your files from you C: drive partition and re-install Windows.

    I, too, suffered the same issue when Windows Update installed KB4524244, which prevented users' to reset their PCs. It is sad that Microsoft laid off their support & development team around this time in 2017. It is always very important to do a full system backup onto an external hard drive. Continue to work w/NavyLCDR as you can learn a lot from him.
    Also, you might find this article helpful.
    I hope you get back up and running ASAP. There's nothing more frustrating than a unresponsive computer.
