Computer will not boot into Windows 10 - getting to repair screen, go to logfile and see the following:

 

Test Performed:

-------------------------

Name: Check for installed LCU

Result: Complete successfully Error code = 0x1160

Time taken = 1375 ms

 

I have tried various fixes that I found on several websites, such as System Restore (no restore points available), tried bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd from command prompt (result of running says successful, but says no identified Windows installations) and the follow up commands bootrec.exe /fixmbr and bootrec.exe /fixboot with no success. Have tried all possible choices of boot (safe mode, safe mode with network, etc, etc). 

 

Any ideas what might be causing this and how I can fix? I'd like to avoid a reset if possible.

 

Any other info needed? Happy to provide.

 

TIA

Hi, sorry to hear of the problems you have been experiencing.

 

This is a notoriously difficulty issue... unfortunately that has affected many folks...

 

It is sometimes a lot quicker to take a root and branch approach rather than spending a lot of time on individual potential "fixes" that often do not work!

 

I know from your post that you would prefer not to reset, but this is probably a decent option for you to re-consider..... make sure that your back up strategy has worked faultlessly and that everything that is important to you on your machine is safely copied to external media, verified and with several copies (with at least one copy kept safely offsite.)

 

Rather than a reset if you have made a good disc image (using something like Macrium Reflect Free or one of the other disc utilities) then reimaging should have you up and running again in less time than it takes to walk the dog!

 

If by any chance then your haven't got a decent back up or even a disc image then it will soon be time for New Year Resolutions to be made and these two  ought really to figure towards the top of your list.

 

In the meantime if you need to copy off anything important that is not already safely backed up then you could boot from a live linux distro ( LInux Puppy is good and a relatively small download) and once your data is secured you could experiment a little to find the troublesome missing files (its often missing startup files that cause these sorts of issues), or just reformat your hard disc and reinstall Windows from scratch.

Good luck

Regards
