  1. Good morning Maurice, I trust you are keeping well. I am not sure if you are able to follow through on my support journey but let me explain where I ended up and hopefully you can provide guidance on whether or not i need to reverse the command prompts i.e the 2nd & 3rd commands meant to insure there is an enhanced advanced boot options available. So I created a USB W10 installation media as advised but also decided to install the W10 OS on a new Samsung SSD for contingency (i will come back to this backup solution later as I do have a working system and the Samsung SSD is n
  2. Thank you Maurice. It is the last sequence of images which illustrates the troubleshooting option that is simply just taking round and round in circles and irrespective of safe mode or other choices it just reverts to Automatic Repair and then back to the first screen. that has been my dilemma, how to exit this loop ??? as for the Bios screen would it allow me to boot from USB if inserted first and then would I be able to access advanced start up which is what we trying to achieve yesterday?.
  3. Hope all is well with you Maurice, I imagine we are facing a rebuild which I really want to avoid. in the meantime I have progressed a little but please advise if you think it helps with the way forward. i removed and reinserted the cmos battery from the motherboard and have now got a new start up screen. I did not have the USB or any other peripherals attached when I powered up. Do you think w3 can work with this screen ?
  4. Have followed your guidance diligently including removing the usb. black screen with W10 allows me time to key F8 and the options listed are attached below. tried safe mode with networking several times and other options and regardless the PC loops back to Preparing automatic repair/ diagnosing your PC and then the same blue screen telling me it has failed. I am stuck in the same loop.
  5. Ok I have just selected Reply to this thread ... didn’t use the quote ? Have followed all the instructions for my PC as stated and inserted the USB. On boot up the only option is Windows 10, I assume it is not seeing the USB as bootable yet. pressed F8 and selected f5 which is The safe mode with networking. The PC goes through the same loop again and ends up with Automatic Repair, Your PC said not start correctly. am I missing something? Maybe the USB needs to be in a different slot ?
  6. Ok understood will do. I now have the usb so should be able to report back this afternoon. The restore Point date was 6/16/20 at 1:30 am
  7. Next step Run rstrui.exe was OK it found my restore point 6/16/2020 and recovered my system to that RP. see images below: After the restore appeared to complete successfully the Restart repeated the same original problem and I have tried all troubleshooting options and I cannot escape the automatic repair / failed to start loop. Back to square 1 ?
  8. Ok thank you, Here are the results so far, not successful atm
  9. Thanks Maurice, really appreciate your support, Yes I will try that again in the morning (12pm here). For clarification are the previous commands in lines 2 and 3 a prerequisite for the recovery procedure. i.e can I shut my PC down and start out fresh 2moro ?
  10. Ok can I catch up 2moro, getting late here and I need my bed ! will leave command prompt window open.
  11. Yes 2nd & 3rd commands re meant to insure there is a enhanced advanced boot options available worked, 4th line failed. i am nervous about restoring from a previous backup because many recent backups reported failure and I never investigated why ! is there a next step from the command prompt ?
  12. Umm quite strange, I get the same response.... no instances available
  13. Response: after first command No Instance(s) Available And then back to the command prompt X:\windows\system32> Should I change directory first ?
