    Boot Loop after the Windows 10 Creators Update

    Hi, greetings all from Argentina. I upgraded my laptop to the new Windows build, and now I can't boot to Windows, it keeps restarting when the Windows logo is displayed. I tried to repair the boot from the USB recovery prompt with bootrec /fixboot and bcdboot c:\Windows /l en-us /s v: /f ALL options, but they didn't work. And the System Restore option doesn't work either, just show the message ""To use System Restore, you must specify which Windows installation to restore.
    Restart this computer, select an operating system, and then select System Restore"" How can I "restart" if I can't boot?

    Can anybody tell me what can I try before I perform a clean install?

    Thanks in advance

    On another pc, install Macrium Reflect Free.

    Create a USB Rescue Drive.

    Boot from it on your pc.

    Select Restore tab and click on link 'fix windows boot problems'.

    It should list Windows 10. If so click next, finish. With luck, pc will now be able to boot.

    Thank you for your suggestion. I forgot to mention that I already did a Automatic repair from the USB recovery, but it couldn't fix it either.

    I guess I have a bigger problem now. When my laptop powers on, it doesn't show the Windows logo, now it just display a message in a black background that says "No bootable devices". However, my SSD is displayed in the BIOS.

    I will try your suggestion, Macrium.

    When you were in the windows 10 troubleshooting menu you tried system restore. Did you try reset with save files or startup options then safe mode with command prompt?
    Can you navigate to safe mode with command prompt and run sfc /scannow?
    If you cannot perform any steps in the windows troubleshooting menu you usually can often interrupt a boot loop by booting to a USB flash drive. Then you can attempt repair using the windows troubleshooting menu on the bootable windows 10 iso.

    Obtain a flash drive and create a bootable windows 10 iso:

    Download Windows 10

    Each computer manufacture has a F key to choose the boot device. Clicking the F key will then allow you to choose the USB flash drive. If it is a custom computer you will likely need to change the boot order.

    Then perform an in place upgrade so that you can save files.

    If files are backed up or you want a new operating system then perform a clean install deleting partitions, formatting, making an unallocated drive. Then install the new os via the bootable windows 10 iso.

    I tried resetting, but I come up with the drive is locked message. I tried all of that from a USB with Windows 10, using F12 from my DELL laptop to access the boot selection. But now I can't try the safe mode since I'm unable to boot at all, since now I have no logo, just a message that says "no bootable devices"

    I will try to use macrium and then I will perform a clean install. Luckily that will solve it. I have had upgraded from Windows 7, and I have had problems with the video card when updated the anniversary edition, so my guess is that could be the problem.

    After multiple tries, the operating system on your PC failed to start,

    I managed to boot again. Apparently I had changed the Boot Mode Settings, so I changed back toLEGACY; secure boot: OFF

    I created the USB recovery with Macrium, booted and fixed the boot problems (the System Reserved partition was selected to boot, so I changed to the one with the Windows folder) and then I restarted the laptop.

    After it started to boot, it did a scan of the disk, then an automatic repair with no luck.
    Then I did an sfc, the outcome was:
    "verification 100% completewindows resource protection could not perform the requested operation"

    After that I tried once again the repair, and now a new message appeared (Is the new BSOD?):

    Your pc ran into a problem and needs to restart ...Stop Code BAD SYSTEM CONFIG INFO

    Then a new screen popped up
    RecoveryYour PC couldn't start properly
    After multiple tries, the operating system on your PC failed to start, so it needs to be repaired. (Really?)Error code: 0xc0000001You'll need to use recovery tools....(Isn't that what I'm doing?)

    From there I can go to the startup settings, so I tried safe mode, disable driver signature enforcement, etc. with no luck.

    I guess I should start with the clean install...Anyway, thank you for your help.
