    Boot up hit and miss!


    Over the last couple of weeks my boot up has been very hit and miss, when it misses I get the message, 'Reboot and select proper boot device', I switch off and after a couple of tries all works fine.

    When I look in the Boot Option, 1st Boot Device is 'Windows Boot Manager'.

    I have reinstalled Windows 10 yesterday but still get the same problem!

    Any ideas as how to solve this?

    Thanks.

    Hi, please post a screenshot of Disk Management.

    Assuming you have a HDD (no details given) please run Crystal Diskinfo (free) or similar and post the one picture result (not the whole report) showing Good/Caution/Bad based on your SMART parameters.

    Check cabling and seating of drives.

    You could try removing drives you don't need for your PC to boot for test purposes and try booting.

    Crystal Disk Info below.

    Removed Extra Drive and tried rebooting seemed to work but due to the inconsistancy it is difficult to say if this is a cure, I doubt it some how.

    One thing I do know is the system is very slow when running and booting up takes an age.

    Thanks for your time and help.

    Please post a screenshot of Disk Management.
    Windows key + X, click Disk Management

    (How do you post a screenshot? - once you have your image e.g. jpg, png- use the icon above your post to the left of the video icon - its mouseover tooltip = Insert Image).

    There are articles on this that should help:
    BEST FIX: Operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect - Appuals.com article gives plenty of suggestions. Unfortunately the English is somewhat deficient.

    That looks ok (no need to use docx attachments).
    The documents I've posted should be of interest.
