Windows 10: Infinite Repair Loop
Infinite Repair Loop
I have an HP 14-ac151nr laptop. It attempts to diagnose and repair but loops. Cannot access safemode.
Have tried startup repair
bootrec.exe with /rebuildbcd & /fixmbr & /fixboot
I found this while searching the forum. Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery - Windows 7 Help Forums and tried it. on step 13 it said "The file sizes presented here are approximate estimations, and may vary depending on your system. If any one of them are 0 bytes, then you should stop what you're doing now and seek an alternative method of recovering your system, because Windows cannot function with a 0-byte size registry hive."
Of course everything was 0-byte.
I would assume its toast and I would need to do a clean install, or maybe a repair install or something else? Not sure what is the best action at this point. Need advice.
I decided to do a reset. This laptop is one of those that has a 32 GB eMMC hard drive so there was not any data to worry about. Seems to be OK now. I am however having some problems with updating but I'll get to the bottom of it.
Try grabbing and using the Windows Update MiniTool before you spend a lot of time troubleshooting Windows Update. I've found it to be a nearly perfect replacement for WU, and more capable besides.
Thanks Ed. Will take a look at it.
