Windows 10: System boot stuck before login screen.

    System boot stuck before login screen.


    I don't know if this is the right thread because I don't get any BSOD but it's really close to one.

    The problem:
    System boot stuck before login screen.

    The backstory:
    Messed around with ProgramData's ownership because the Indexer/Search didn't work. (read it in this forum that changing the ownership of that folder might help)
    Restarted the PC and got stuck at the spinning circles. (if I press the ctrl+alt+del and click furiously it gives me the login screen without any input field, just the turn off, ease of acees and lan buttons)

    I tried many things to fix this problem but with no success so far:
    - run in safe mode with lan
    - turn on the local administrator account and try to reset the ownership of the folder
    (no permission to do that??)
    - run sfc /scannow (told me that some errors couldn't be repaired)
    - run DISM
    - run system restore with keeping my personal files

    What seemed to fix the problem:
    - run system restore with deleting all files (now I can login without any problem, but the search problem remained)

    What I found so far:
    - CBS contains many similar lines to this
    "2015-11-24 22:37:22, Info CSI 00000b04 Warning - Overlap: Duplicate ownership for directory [l:92{46}]"\??\C:\ProgramData\" in component Microsoft-Windows-Branding-Base-Professional, Version = 10.0.10240.16384, pA = amd64, nonSxS, PublicKeyToken"
    - ntblog contains a bunch of "BOOTLOG_NOT_LOADED @hal.inf,%acpi_amd64.devicedesc%;ACPI x64-based PC" and many similar (driver related?) lines

    Any thoughts on this?
