    Hi, if it's not going to be a huge problem, the quickest solution now will be to reinstall.
    If you added the SSD later, make sure your BIOS is set to use AHCI for best SSD performance before installing.

    I've tried all the steps. It's all right. A month ago I made the image of win10, installed a ssd and installed win10 on this new hd.It worked perfectly, until about 10 days ago, when these described phenomena began.I think of doing a new, clean reinstallation.In my old hd, 1T, I have installed the programs I use, all of them.
    Since the system worked fine and suddenly started causing problems, I think one option is that this was caused by some update.Is there a way to uninstall any of them, or can you only get those that Microsoft "allows"?

    Please post a screenshot of Disk Management, and advise if your PC is UEFI enabled or not.

    You can uninstall updates if you wish. However, I don't think it will have been an update that caused this.

    Hi, there's a problem there.

    I will show you the typical partition structure for two different configurations.

    Can't repair my installation-snap-2017-04-15-21.15.07.jpg
    1. BIOS/MBR-based hard drive partitions

    2. UEFI/GPT-based hard drive partitions

    You should research your MBR/BIOS of the motherboard you bought and find out if you have legacy BOS only, or UEFI as well.

    Of the above configurations, as viewed by Disk Management, the System partition (16Mb) is not shown.
    You are lacking a recovery partition. That's about 450 -500Mb.

    So, however you created your current installation, it seems it wasn't a normal Windows installation.

    Here's my UEFI partition set as viewed by Easeus Partition Manager.

    I think I know who is the guilty: ME! When I made the image (with Macrium) I must have made an incomplete copy, which later was restored on the SSD.

    Sounds about right.
    Now, if you originally had a HDD and you swapped to a SSD, at that point you need to have ensured you had AHCI enabled in your BIOS for best performance. There are tutorials for that procedure.

    Macrium has an option for Windows Backup, which backs up by default all partitions associated with the OS.

    You could follow this approximate process:
    1. Create a disk image of your 'C:' partition
    2. Wipe your SSD and make sure AHCI is enabled
    3. Reinstall Windows and make sure the partition size for 'C:' is big enough for your existing 'C:'
    4. Restore your disk image in place of the new Windows partition.
    5. Run startup repair.

    One more question: is it notoriously important have image done for C: and E: (see mydisk management, please), is not? Or not?
