    Windows 10 Issues


    So im working on a friends computer and im getting the boot/bcd error... It's very annoying, im tech savvy and I have rebuilt the BCD multiple times. Usually after I do Bootrec /fixMBR
    bootrec /fixBoot
    bootrec /rebuildBCD

    It works, then next time I shutdown and start up again I get the same error!?!?!
    I tested with the cd/dvd burner unplugged to see if that was causing the issues. I have also tried with all pherierals removed exept the vga cable going to the display. Could a failing hard drive cause this? I have already gone ahead and backed up my friends data incase something goes wrong. I have an extra hard drive laying around.. Should I pop it in, and install windows 10 on it and see what happens?

    P.S. This system originally had windows 7 on it but was upgraded to windows 10 but they have been using 10 succesfully for awhile. So im assuming this is NOT related.

    Thanks for any help!

    I would definitely check that disk for bad sectors etc.

    So I actually ran the windows 10 automatic start up repair, and I think it fixed some disk errors. Im currently attempting to clone the drive and try the new drive out on the system to see if the issue stays with a different drive. Im almost wondering if it's just a bug, and a reinstall would fix it.

    There are two copies of MBR/BOOT sectors but if there is an error on first one it generally can make problems during BOOT. Best would be to eliminate doubt in disk being error free. Every make of disks has utilities for checking and validating their HDDs.

    Is this a UEFI boot PC since the repair procedure is different? See my recent post for tips https://www.tenforums.com/installatio...x80004005.html

    If it's windows 10 im assuming its uefi. I honestly think the drive just has some bad sectors. I tried chkdsk a few times but it was taking forever on 0 percent, so I stopped it. Now im just going to run chkdsk for awhile and see what happens...

    Think I harmed anything by shutting the pc off in the middle of a chkdsk?

    Checkdisk is looking only for file integrity, what you need is test program from disks manufacturer !!

    So figure out the disk brand and do a google search?
