    Thank you so much jds63!!.
    Last things: Can you tell me or direct me to a guide on how to make a system image for windows 10. Also probably more important How do you do a clean install of windows 10 as I am coming from the windows 7 upgrade to windows 10.
    Thank you so much again for you quick responses and help
    You already read my mind
    Your Welcome ! Plenty of tutorials here to look at when you get a chance, as ones i sent you. In some cases clean install done from a disc ISO or USB will solve certain issues, but up to person if want to go through reinstalling all other software back on. Does seem to run much better this way. Reading minds here is because you deal with many issues and ones similar to yours.

    So as my luck would have it, or lack of, when I came back home after buying a external hard drive to back up my data I found that my PC is now in auto repair loop. I've been searching the forums and I found this

    ^not sure if this will work for windows 10
    I just need to get to a point where I can back up my data then its a clean install from there

    What did you do before you left the PC nothing yet when it started this? Still at the point of before when you posted this thread ?

    I just left it on didn't touch any setting, but when I came back it was going through the start up repair. Now its just stuck in this start up repair loop.

    Happen to make a windows 10 disc or USB yet, following some of tutorials mentioned requires you to get back to startup repiar and try to then get to the command prompt, as has something to do with the boot record i think, seen many of this but not many easy solutions. Sometimes hard reset pulling plug. Due to windows update that was either causing the issues or one you have not received that fixes this issue. Have another PC i would get the ISO make a disc or a USB bootable flash drive, disc would be easier if have burning software. Can then also boot from this to try same method.

    tried this method after leaving my PC unplugged for 10 min. didn't work sadly.

    I can do it with windows 10? I don't need Ubuntu. If I can use windows 10 I would rather that method than the 2nd link that I posted as I am not familiar with Linux .

    Did not have to leave it unplugged for long, mean not ideal for HDD to shutdown this way but because of the repair loop it has been tried before for it. Unless your power button it set to shutdown the PC.

    Where does Ubuntu fall in here, did have a dual boot with it ? Second link meaning this one ?

    We were trying to save your files on PC before you tried a clean install is why i wanted you to make a Windows 10 disc if you are then not concerned over loss of those files we can try redoing a clean install. As i wanted to possibly get to a command prompt through the disc if possible. Wishing you read about the upgrade here before you proceeded in the beginning would of saved you the troubles from not backing up files before hand.This should be a regular practice all the time with backups as to what if the Hard Drive goes bad all of a sudden, just some FYI.

    Just recalled something, do you know if your BIOS is UEFI ? Best if when posting here you try to fill in all your system specs for us to see that way we can know what we are dealing with and provide better assistance. As can not boot to advanced options without UEFI BIOS. What i was talking about before clean install https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html

    I decided to use Linux Mint. After mounting it to my Usb I am now copying all my data, making the back up I should have done before hand. But I guess hindsight is 20/20. Anyways I thought I ask is there an easy way of putting back my data, instead of manually placing it back. Like some magical program where if I press a restore button everything will be back where it was before. One can dream right?
