    Boot Error 0xc0000001

    core i7, 16 GB, 120GB SSD, 2TB HD, radeon graphic, MSI mobo Win 10 up from 8.1.

    Rather perplexing boot problem. I use my computer fine, turn it off. Next day I can't boot. You get the screen that takes you to the screen with the 8 options (safe mode, safe mode w networking, boot logging, etc) but no matter which option you choose, you wind up back at the same screen - can't boot.

    I said to myself, no problem. I had cloned my SSD with the OS earlier when it was working fine just for these situations. I put the clone in, access the boot option, and boot from the clone and FUDGE! still doesn't boot.

    I put in my 8.1 OS disk, (since I upgraded there is no win 10 disk) get to advanced options, rolled back to a sys restore date when it was working fine. No go - still can't boot. What good is it to have this stupid feature if it doesn't work ?!!!!

    So I go to advanced options again, and try the command line. Ran bootrec with various options to rebuild the boot record and MBR, etc. They all say completed successfully, still no go - can't boot.

    I've run that dism command, but it just aborts with errors.

    previously, I'd run separate disk utilities to check my SSD that has the OS on it, and it showed no errors.

    I'd also periodically ran anti-virus (avira) and MB anti-malware. They either never found anything, or they just found mildly annoying things, but no serious problems.

    At this point, I'm thinking some kind of hardware failure - if a restore point doesn't work, and a cloned disk can't boot, and OS repairs don't work, what else could it be?

    However, I tried running Ubuntu from a disk and it boots fine. BIOS shows the full 16GB ram available. I can access the internet, and all my hard disks show up, and I can access files and even open them, which tells me my keyboard, mouse, display, CPU, ram and hard disk and network connections, are all working fine.

    I will say that prior to this boot problem, I think windows was continually trying to update the OS, but was unable to. Frequently when I tried to turn the computer off, it would run forever trying to update. I would never turn it off, but in the morning, the computer was off - either from the original shutdown command or from power management. A company that can't update it's own OS, is just -------. They take all control of the update away from us, so there is not much we can do except trust them HA!

    Anyway, obviously I'm in dire straits until I can get this stinking piece of software up and running again. Any help would be appreciated. BTW, my bios setting for the sata drives only have 3 options, one is disable, one is IDE. I forget the third, but since disabled and IDE are clearly not correct for a SATA drive, the third option is the only possible one to use.

    Just FYI, when I say run Ubuntu from a disk, I mean from a DVD - so I wasn't trying to install Ubuntu anywhere on the computer.
