    Win10 Vol4


    Win10 Vol4?
    Recently finished upgrade install from 8.1 pro to win10; all seemed normal but I did not turn system protection on, ergo no win 10 restore point but do have win 8.1 restore point.

    Installed VS community 2015 (free version) which required a restart.

    At startup, 2 versions of win10 showed up

    Default was…win10 vol4; this started OK and I could run program including the VS community 2015
    Option was…win10; starts to load but stops at blue screen which is displaying the following:

    Recovery
    Your pc needs to be repaired. The app or OS couldn’t be loaded because a req’d file is missing or has errors.

    File:\windows\system32\winload.exe
    Error code: 0xc000000e
    You’ll need to use recovery tools. If no install media contact pc admin etc.

    Press enter to try again (did, no response)
    press F8 for startup options (again no response)
    press F9 to use diff OS (this restarted the system)
    end of message

    In disk management: all looks normal
    In file explr win10 vol4 c: drive shows
    $windows.~BT
    $windows.~WS
    My files
    Windows
    Windows.old
    Posting to get some help on best approach to T/S this problem.

    Sounds like an extra boot file got loaded on to the boot loader.

    A temporary fix would be to go into the working operating system. Click on cortana, type, msconfig, open msconfig, go to boot tab, and set the vol4 as the default OS. Click apply and reboot.

    Only apply the default OS to the working Windows 10.

    You may need to back up your files and do a reinstall, but maybe someone else may be of better assistance

    That is odd that happened.

    thanks for reply. I'm hoping to get more inputs before I take any action but I will explore your suggestion.

    Then after you are sure the default OS is booting fine, just go back into MSCONFIG and delete the extra entry for the non-default, non-functioning entry and you have a permanent solution. No need for a re-install.

    moree complete info


    Restart
    boot screen shows next to the buttons

    win10
    on vol 4

    win10

    I click on button 1, the "on vol 4" button

    Once running, run msconfig and on the general tab
    it has selected "selective startup"
    checks on load systems services and load start up items
    Use original boot configuration is grayed out.

    boot tab shows

    Windows 10 (C:\windows):current OS;Default OS
    Windows10 (\windows)

    I tried to change the general tab to normal startup and use the "original boot configuration" but after a restart
    msconfig had returned to the "selective startup"

    suggestions needed

    It does that. After they moved the startup tab to Task manager in Windows 8, that has been a little buggy. Windows 10 is the same way, although MS released a fix on Windows 8.1 to fix that issue, but it only affected new installs that was a clean install. Current installed systems were not affected by the update.

    I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 8, and that was a constant problem with msconfig. Also upgraded from Windows 8 to 8.1, and things only got worse from there as nothing worked correctly. I couldn't even create a system image due to the functionality being broken.

    The only thing that fixed everything was when I install a clean Windows 8.1 PRO with Update 1 included. Everything worked well.

    Msconfig has worked for me on clean installs only, but there may be others who's have worked correctly after upgrade.

    Some have found workarounds but I prefer not to do that.

    apparent that not many want to fool with the MBR. But I found this one
    http://www.thewindowsclub.com/repair...rd-mbr-windows

    But I am inclined to just live with this as long as thee are no further complications. If there are, well then, clean install.

    LtCmdr; that did help o;n the boot but msconfig is still not going to normal boot. beginning to think Imaneke is right, that msconfig is having problems with boot. I am most likely to do a clean install and if it gives me a stable result I'll let you know. I did try the corrections in the link I posted but, as with this solution, msconfig is only good until the second restart. Odd; seems like it's a switch.

    I think you're correct; a clean install is best solution.
    But the Commander's deletion idea does eliminate the start option. It goes right into the working install.
