Windows 10: Windows 10 Hangs at Spinning wheel after running chkdsk at boot
Windows 10 Hangs at Spinning wheel after running chkdsk at boot
If I run chkdsk at a command prompt, and set it to run at boot, Windows 10 gets hung with a spinning wheel after completing the chkdsk. It does this for any disk, not just C:
at boot, it runs the chkdsk to completion but then hands at spinning wheel after.
screen says, with spinning wheel:

it won't respond to ctrl-alt-del or even the power switch. I can press the reset button or power off and then it boots ok.
Windows will restart otherwise, no problems, but if I run chkdsk at boot, then it will hang every time.
within Windows, the Chkdsk from the command prompt, force dismount, will run to completion. Also can use the tool, scan disk, and not problems found for any of the disks. So I don't think it is a disk issue.
It seems to be an issue with the boot, after completing the chkdsk.
I too have seen this issue as far back as when the preview versions were first available. I also have no solution to the issue. Maybe somebody else can chime in here and shed some light.
Do you use Powershell instead on Cmd prompt? It is only thing I changed before it started acting up. I ran the chkdsk within powershell the first time before it acted up. I changed back to cmd but it didn't fix it.
No I have always used the Cmd Prompt. But I do believe it has something to do UEFI based systems. I have 2 W10 systems, and it only fails on the UEFI system. The legacy boot system seems to be ok.
That doesn't recommend any fix. Its only instructions on how to repair W10.

Installed Windows 10 and seemed to be a good install as OS worked immediately after installed. Shut down and now all I get is a blue screen and those little balls that spin.
Update stuck on spinning wheel following download of drivers etc and after copying files. Black screen with blue logo and continuos spinning wheel.
Hello! I recently set my Windows 10 computer to run chkdsk at the next reboot. Well, I just rebooted, and chkdsk is failing. It pops up the standard "Checking drive C:" message for a split second then I get a BSOD with the error...
