    Bummer! It seems to be updating the c:\windows, not the windows on the other partition!
    I do know that in previous versions it would allow you to choose, but I DONT see that here!
    Is there a way to point it to the other partition, or if I boot to the OS flash drive, could I then install on my messed up partition?
    (MBR seems fine as it will post and then go into the autorepair etc) It seems to be something with the WINDOWS is messed up.

    Well, that ain't encouraging!

    Any suggestions?
    (as a side note:I did backup that partition with Macrium Reflect, but since that does not boot, the new one wont either.)

    Why have two disks in place, both with Windows on them?

    If you are trying to fix the one, simplify. Remove the other.

    If you boot to the windows 10 iso and then navigated through it to the windows advanced troubleshooting menu you can perform a startup repair. That may fix the automatic repairing and diagnosing messages.
    If the startup repair fails then you could perform the in place upgrade repair.

    I found the log files in \\windows\system32\logfiles\srt and srttrails.txt has:
    Root cause found: ---------------------------Boot critical file d:\windows\system32\drivers\avgboota.sys is corrupt.Repair action: File repairResult: Failed. Error code = 0x2Time taken = 3125 msRepair action: System files integrity check and repairResult: Failed. Error code = 0x490Time taken = 542282 ms


    I reached out to AVG, and they had me rename all of the avg*.sys files (avgboota.sys was not one I found...) and still have the same issue.
    If I try to boot to safemode, and select option F8 (skip advanced antivirus or something) I get an inaccessible boot device.

    Macriums did not resolve the issue. Everything looked like it rain fine, but still getting the critical failiure on the AVGBOOTA.SYS (I did find a site that had this file, and I dl and copied the file to \windows\system32\drivers\ but did not help)

    At this time what happens when you power on?
    Were you ever able to get to the computer's Windows advanced troubleshooting options?
    Were you able to use a F key to choose the boot device or change the bios boot order and boot to a windows 10 iso?

    The missing .sys file symptom has occurred in other threads, relatively recently, although I think it was a different AV product.

    Needs research.

    I am now getting (somehow this changed, not sure if from the Macriums, running the bcdedit or at what point)
    "Recovery
    Your PC coundn't start properly
    After Multiple tries, the operation sysmte on your PC failed to start, so it needs to be repaired.
    Error codde 0xc00000001
    Youll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you dont have any installation media (like a disk or USB device) contact your system administrator or PC manufacture.
    Press Enter to try again
    Press F8 for Startup Settings
    Press F9 to use a different Operating System

    This is a Lenovo t510 and recovery media is Windows 7 Professional.
    I press f8 and I get the safemode start menu. but all options bring me to inaccessible boot.-

    HOLD THE PRESSES! I just got into SAFEMODE!!!! (F4)
    I need to get back to you to advise what I can do!!
    YIPEE!!!
