    Windows 10

    1. Go find a computer ( device like your mobile phone )
    2. Search for windows 10 PE download tool etc.
    3. Search for rufus or whatever "ISO to USB" . I am sure there are some for android and maybe even iOS ( ha ).
    4. Make a bootable Windows 10PE USB
    5. Look up some Youtube videos about Windows error correcting mode. Usually found by Pressing F8 before the OS boot-logo.
    6. First try use the error correcting console ( AKA command-line ) or use an option to restore to an earlier point, or restore files needed to boot windows.
    7. If that does not work then try going in via Safe-mode.
    8. If that does not work then restart and hit F12 ( or whatever brings up the boot options when you start the machine ).
    6. Choose the USB and boot into Windows 10PE.
    7. As with browsing Youtube and internet browsing. Figure out what you need to do to correct the problem from WIN10PE.
    8. If that fails or your just lazy. Go find a copy of Windows 10. Like Ameliorated Windows 10 for instance or whatever floats your boat.
    9. Based on what version of Windows 10 you have it may or may not give you the option to repair the system and attempt to boot into the system.
    10. If all else fails reinstall Windows 10 from the ground up. The only problem is that a reinstall will not wipe your programs but if your programs are registered then it might not be usable.

    11. If your choose to go the Ameliorated path. You need to have a "portable file explorer" on hand and possible trigger the GUi via the task-manager.


    The problem that your having is that Windows needs a specific set of files to load and something is not right in that process.

    Windows 10 Pro for the Bro

    Okay. So I did a little skim-through of the first post. Apologizes if any of the following info has been mentioned already:

    I have a little Windows Installation Notes text file, right? And at the end of it, I have a simplified version of what could possibly be done, if Windows starts messing up or something. I did a copy/paste. But I'm sure you can go into the recovery environment and use the following info to attempt to try to repair Windows:

    Hope the best of luck to get Windows up and running again.

    Win 10 Pro (22H2) (2nd PC is 22H2)

    Basic info that might help:
    a. As prompted when you wrote your first post: your full Windows build number.
    b. A screenshot of your partitions using a 3rd party tool such as Minitool Partition Wizard.

    As your PC won't boot you'd need to create a live boot disk and boot your PC from that, or use a partition manager boot disk.

    You say programs are installed on another disk.
    How many disks are there in your laptop?
    If your programs are installed there (and not portable) then your Windows partition includes significant parts of those programs- files, folders and registry keys.

    What I would like A working win 10 installation that retains my programs (most of which are on a separate disk and partition) and data.
    The routine way to achieve this is to:
    a. Create a disk image of your Windows partition (and your programs disk/partition).
    b. Clean install Win 10
    c. Use e.g. Laplink PCMover to transfer your accounts and programs to the new installation using the disk image of 'C:' as source.

    Complication: that you have chosen to install programs to another disk.

    Note: to protect your installation and give you a chance to recover in many situations- even if your system disk e.g. fails- members here endlessly recommend the routine and regualr use of 3rd party disk imaging - so you can usually get back to previous good state by restoring an image created before the problem occurred

    You didn't answer my questions from post #2.

    Use the Windows 10 recovery environment that came pre installed with win10 to run a check disk.

    Open a CMD window as administrator and type:
    list vol (take note of the Windows partition letter. It may not be C:)
    chkdsk X: /f (replace X with the Windows partition letter fond above)

    Pay attention on the results, specially bad blocks, bad clusters, bad sectors etc

    If you can boot your computer into Safe Mode and execute verifier /reset command.

    If you can system restore, Windows 10 from recovery environment.

    You can also execute following commands one at a time from recovery environment.

    At the Command Prompt type the command below you want to use and hit enter. Reboot the PC for the changes to take effect.
