    I have done that. It brings up a Windows Setup window with an option to Install now, or to repair my computer.
    That is what you want. Click on repair my computer. A few screens later it will ask you what you want to keep. Click on personal files and apps.

    After clicking repair my computer, it shows 3 options: continue, Troubleshoot, and Turn off my PC. Is this what I'm supposed to see?

    Might be a good idea to run chkdsk from the Win 10 boot disk first ... just reread the first post where Plasmawario said using and image ot recover his system failed.. I'm wondering why?

    Would I use cmd? Or some other method?

    Sorry it took awhile to get back to you. This is what Dalchina is talking about. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html. From repair your computer>Troubleshoot>advanced options>command prompt. the command is chkdsk /f. Not sure how much this will help, but if you are having hard disk problems this will find them and attempt to repair them. After this runs and it might take awhile try to reinstall following this. Reinstall Windows 10 with this media. Something is hanging up, maybe this will get it working.

    I have tried chkdsk, and it had found problems. But when I use chkdsk /f it cannot fix because the volume is write protected

    Since you can't repair install or reinstall maybe you could use a Linux environment to recover your files before doing a clean install. Sorry I couldn't help. Good luck.

    I may have a solution
    Choose Troubleshoot - Advanced Options - Startup settings
    After rebooting press F1 (start windows with kernel debug)
    This allowed me to enter the desktop , however in the next reboot , automatic repair popped up again .
    So I used EasyBCD (ver.2.3) to edit the boot settings .
    Start the program - go to Advanced settings - choose tab Developer - check the option "start windows with kernel debug" - save your settings . This made the effect permanent .
    I don't know why this problem showed up . My system (a 10 upgrade over a win 7 x64 installation) was working fine and still does .
    Hope this helps .
