Windows 10: Automatic repair loop

    Automatic repair loop


    I upgraded from windows 7 to 10 when it was released and have had no problems with it until now. However when I started up my pc this morning it showed the windows logo and below that said "preparing automatic repair repair" the text then changed to "diagnosing your pc". Then it says "Your pic did not start correctly, press restart to restart your pc, which can sometimes fix the problem. You can also press advanced options to try other options to repair your pc." I tried restarting but that resulted in me being taken through the exact same thing. I went to advanced settings and pressed continue which resulted in me being sent to the same ting again. Resetting my pc failed. I then loaded my windows 7 install disc and ran startup repair from there. It said startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically. I'm not quite sure what to do next any help would be appreciated.

    you should have created a Windows 10 repair disk (see BACKUP)
    there should be an error code when the system halts
    this error code might be very helpful in sourcing solutions

    Try to locate the error code and either google it or post it

    Good luck

    Where should I look for the error code. When running startup repair from windows 7 disk or when trying to start pc normally?

    I started having the exact same issue last night. I see no error code on boot up. I have attempted to turn off fast boot in the hopes of seeing an error code.
    I also went into cmd mode to check my C drives directory. When it gets really weird pc thinks c drive is empty? Or reserved but it does not show any windows files or default security or Sam files containing any bytes
