    How to Enable or Disable Automatic Repair in Windows 10


    If you PC crashes 2 times consecutively or fails to boot, Windows 10 will run Automatic Repair by default during the next startup in an attempt to diagnose and fix your PC. This basically involves automatically running a startup repair.

    If you prefer to manually repair you PC, you can disable the automatic repair feature. Disabling the automatic repair feature can also be helpful if you should get stuck in an infinite "preparing automatic repair" loop.

    This tutorial will show you how to enable or disable the automatic repair feature at boot in Windows 10.

    You must be an administrator to enable or disable automatic repair.


     CONTENTS:

    • Option One: Enable or Disable Automatic Repair in Command Prompt at Boot
    • Option Two: Enable or Disable Automatic Repair in Command Prompt in Windows 10


    EXAMPLE: Startup Issue when Automatic Repair is Disabled

    OPTION ONE

    Enable or Disable Automatic Repair in Command Prompt at Boot


    1. Open a command prompt at boot.

    2. Type bcdedit into the command prompt at boot, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

    A) Look under the Windows Boot Loader section for your Windows 10 (description), and make note of its identifier (ex: "{default}").

    B) In this same section, make note if recoveryenabled is currently set to Yes (enabled) or No (disabled).

    3. Enter the command below you want to use into the command prompt at boot, and press Enter. (see screenshot above)

    (Enable automatic repair - DEFAULT)
    bcdedit /set {identifier} recoveryenabled Yes

    OR

    (Disable automatic repair)
    bcdedit /set {identifier} recoveryenabled No

    Substitute identifier in the command above with the actual identifier (ex: "{default}") from step 2 above for Windows 10.

    For example: bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled No

    4. When finished, close the command prompt at boot.

    5. Click/tap on Continue to exit recovery and start Windows 10. (see screenshot below)

    OPTION TWO

    Enable or Disable Automatic Repair in Command Prompt in Windows 10


    1. Open an elevated command prompt.

    2. Type bcdedit into the elevated command prompt, and press Enter. (see screenshot below)

    3. Look under the Windows Boot Loader section for your Windows 10 (description), and make note of its identifier (ex: "{current}").

    4. In this same section, make note if recoveryenabled is currently set to Yes (enabled) or No (disabled).

    5. Enter the command below you want to use into the elevated command prompt, and press Enter. (see screenshot above)

    (Enable automatic repair - DEFAULT)
    bcdedit /set {identifier} recoveryenabled Yes

    OR

    (Disable automatic repair)
    bcdedit /set {identifier} recoveryenabled No

    Substitute identifier in the command above with the actual identifier (ex: "{current}") from step 3 above for Windows 10.

    For example: bcdedit /set {current} recoveryenabled No

    6. When finished, you can close the elevated command prompt.

    Hello @TechZ,

    It looks like you will need to open an elevated PowerShell instead.

    Hello Taif, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Does clicking on the Advanced Options button and click on Continue to Windows button allow you to boot to Windows 10?
