    Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10 Performance Maintenance Tutorials

    Hi, you can only get into Safe Mode by default having booted at least to a login screen.
    You can't do that from a boot disk.

    One useful way (there are several) is SHIFT + left click Restart. Your PC will restart and you have to follow through the prompts.

    If you wish to add other ways to access Safe Mode, please search the Tutorial Section (which you're free to browse and search) for
    Safe Mode
    Windows 10 Tutorial Index Tutorials

    F8 is deprecated in Win 10 (no longer available).

    It is possible for chkdsk to take a very long time. However that can be indicative of other problems.

    As you say you cannot now boot to Windows at all, let's try a simple diagnostic:
    Please download and create Kyhi's boot disk (DVD or USB disk) from the top of the Software and Apps section here.

    Boot from that, (it's a form of Win 10 as you can see from the picture), then run HD Tune and post a screenshot like this:

    - showing the health of your disk(s).
    To post a screenshot please use the Insert Image icon above your post to the left of the video icon. Thanks.

    Also please fill in your computer specs (see mine for comparison - click My computer at the bottom of my post)

    Cancelling the chkdsk scan:
    This may be possible once you can boot from the above disk, if you are familiar with using the command prompt.
    Boot from that disk, open a command prompt, and noting that the drive letters will be different (windows will no longer be C: ) identify your system disk, and follow from section 3. here:

    Please boot your computer with Windows Setup Media and from Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt.

    Please type below command into Command Prompt and press Enter key.

    Following command will fixes errors on the disk and locates bad sectors and recovers readable information.

    Chkdsk D: /r

    Please replace partition letter D: with Windows installed partition letter. When computer boots into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) environment the drive letter assign to Windows partition may not be C: drive letter because Windows 7, 8 , 8.1 and 10 creates a separate system partition when it's installed from scratch. The system partition contains boot files WinRE assigns the system partition the C: drive letter and the Windows installed partition will be assign any other drive letter usually D: drive letter is assign to Windows installed partition. The Bcdedit /enum | find "osdevice" command can be use to find out the drive letter of the Windows installed partition the output of the Bcdedit command is similar to this osdevice partition=D:. The drive letter after partition= is the drive letter of the Windows partition.

    @FreeBooter: disha87 only needs one boot disk - chkdsk can be run booting from Kyhi's disk, which is a lot more comprehensive.

    And before fixing things, we need to see if the disk is any good. That's the first priority.

    I would use HirensBootCD it has HDD diagnostic tools from many HDD manufacturers.

    Please, let's not confuse things. Kyhi's disk is based on Win 10 and includes diagnostic tools, quite enough for this.
