    Something must be deeply wrong with your system since all those things didn't help

    I reckon that you should try Clean Boot and try to narrow down the list of suspects. Leave security software enabled.

    Worked perfectly for me.

    Brink, do you have anywhere instructions for adding WinRE to the menu?

    Hey mate,

    I currently only have a tutorial below on how to boot to WinRE for now.

    Hello everyone,

    I wish to report my experience with using the Option One of this tutorial that eventually lead to what I believe was corruption and Windows refusing to start.

    After applying the latest Win 10 1909 update KB44971665 and .NET Framework update KB4561600 followed by a shutdown of the system, upon startup Windows would not start. It would only get to the spinning circles and hang, never displaying the boot options set by Option One here in the tutorial.

    I reverted to a known good backup which brought the system back to life. That backup did not contain these updates so when they were applied again the same thing happened. Not yet having realized what the issue was This scenario was repeated yet again before I finally figured out the issue. So this problem was reproducible.

    Removing the boot option fixed the issue and the updates were then able to install successfully. So whether the updates themselves could not install correctly causing the problem or the boot option itself were somehow corrupted during the update process I am not sure but, in either case, my system got hosed by it.

    So users beware!

    Hello Railtech,

    It was most likely some issue with installing the update.

    Option 1 in this tutorial will only add an entry to the Windows Boot Manager to allow you to select to load either Windows 10 or Safe Mode at boot. By default, Windows 10 would remain the default OS that would load by default if no selection was made before the 30 seconds time out expired.

    Hi Brink,

    I understand what it does and how it works. I agree that the updates are likely to blame as well. The issue was/is that these updates failed to install correctly due to the Boot Manager modification. The PC would boot but would never display the Boot Manager Option screen. Before the updates were attempted to be applied all was well and I used the PC for many months with the Boot Manager screen displaying happily at each boot.

    So my reason for posting was simply to make users aware of this. I have not attempted to reapply Option One to my system as if Windows Updates can hose the boot manager with these modifications it seems pointless to have Option One applied, don't you agree?

    This is an odd issue, but I'm just not sure if the added boot entry would/could be the cause. Of course, posting all warnings and such is always welcomed.

    When the computer restarts after an update, it normally should continue to boot to Windows 10 (default OS) after the 30 seconds time out period if you don't click on Windows 10 to continue.
