I start the PC it shows "Preparing Automatic Repair" it runs for a few seconds before it stops and goes to the blue screen.

can you post what the error/stop command is on the blue screen and also can you get to a cmd line and use the diskpart command to show us what partitions are there on that drive.

 

:popcorn:

 

no error/command visible on blue screen, and Im not sure how to get the other info your asking for :headscratch:

Hi BHowett, :)

On the Choose an option screen, choose Troubleshoot. On the Advanced Options screen, choose Command Prompt. In the cmd prompt type diskpart. From there:

list disk = Displays a list of disks and information about them, such as their size, amount of available free space

list partition = Displays the partitions listed in the partition table of the current disk.

You want to type in list partition. :)
