Bsod on startup, impossible to boot.

Q: Bsod on startup, impossible to boot.

When I boot into windows 7 I see this:
STOP:0x0000007b (0x80786b50,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000) and safe modes do not work.
I do not have a disk drive but I do have f3 recovery (don't know if you need the disk of recovery) and I do have access to another pc.
I can only go to startup repair options (because startup repair could not find the problem) I have access to cmd but not system restore because I turned off system restore.
I posted this a few days ago with a different title and all I got was a link that did not help me at all.

Preferred Solution: Bsod on startup, impossible to boot.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

It all started when I tripped on my laptop (Thinkpad T60p) power cord a few days ago (it fell 2 the floor). My computer is still functioning, but hangs constantly and a HDD diagnostic test revealed that I have many bad sectors (so much for HDD airbag technology). So what I really want to do is mirror my HDD to a new drive but I need to repair/delete files that were corrupted as a result of the drop.

I tried various methods to get ChkDsk to run, ranging from right-clicking C: Drive and choosing "yes" to run chkdsk at startup. I also set the dirty flag manually via command line. I even added a line for chkdsk to the BootExec registry key:
chkdsk c: /f /r
autocheck autochk *
pgdfgsvc C 1

Note that pagedefrag (pgdfgsvc) runs successfully, but chkdsk does not (i don't see any messages at all about chkdsk before pagedefrag runs.)

Finally, I added the Windows Recovery Console to my startup menu because I know I can run ChkDsk from there. Unfortunately, when I select the console from the menu at startup, it starts to load (the status bar get to 100%) and then I get a BSOD!

Any ideas?

A:Impossible to get ChkDsk to run at Startup (tried everything)

What is the BSOD message? Can you run the recovery console from a Windows XP CD?

Hello,
 
Last night, my Windows 7 64bit laptop suddenly began shutting down by itself and I caught a glimpse of a Microsoft Security Essentials alert message about a certain .exe file in my system. Now every time I try to boot my PC, I get a BSOD at the Windows logo animation. I tried using the Startup repair and did a System Restore, but none of them were able to solve the problem.
 
I also did the following things:
chkdsk, didn't find any errors.
sfc /scannow, which apparently found certain corrupted files that it couldn't fix.
ran Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, but it couldn't find any infected files.
I'm still able to access to my computer through Safe Mode.
 
Is there anything else I could try to solve this issue? Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone,

I am running Windows 7 x64, which is the OS I installed when I built my PC two-ish years ago. I actually just freshly installed the OS to attempt to fix my problem, but I'll get to that later.

CPU: Intel i7-2600k stock
GPU: XFX Radeon HD 7850
MB: Asus Sabertooth Z77
PSU: Corsair HX750W

A week or so ago, I'd been having a problem with a blue screen every time I started up my computer. It would get to the windows initializing screen (the picture of the windows logo with the floating lights around it) but after that it would go to a blue screen, restart, and prompt for System Recovery, which never worked.

I had been able to work around it by entering BIOS before the blue screen happens. What struck me as weird was that opening BIOS alone was not enough, I needed to play with the settings a bit (didn't matter what I changed) to bypass the blue screen. In other words, all I had to do to get my computer to boot properly, is open BIOS, change any setting, and then save and exit. I posted this along with a picture of the blue screen and dmp file (which I have included) to Tom's Hardware and got no response.

So in hope of an easy solution I decided to reinstall windows, as I'd been planning on doing that anyway for a while. It's worked fine for a couple days. But then I shut down to install 164 windows updates, which were clearly because I installed a fresh copy of Win7. Now I can't get my computer to boot except into safe mode. On this last time around... Read more

I cannot boot in either safe or normal mode. When attempting to boot in safe mode, the drivers will load, I wait, the screen goes black & I get the words "safe Mode" in all 4 corners, the cursor moves, but nothing else. Sometimes I simply get a blue screen with a moveable curor. When running a diagnostic I get "boot manager is corrupt or missing". I cannot run system restore. I have the Vista 64 recovery disks from HP , but the computer will not boot from them (the choice to boot from the cd never appears); however, the computer will run the Vista 64 recovery disk I got from the internet, but it cannot find an operating system to repair. I have one 200gb hard drive, however when I run chkdsk, it calls the drive X & says there is only 3 gb there. One more thing, while booting I noticed the opportunity to go into the raid utility by pushing crtl N. I never put raid on my computer & there is no evidence of it in the boot consol. The computer is an HP Pavilion with an AMD Quad core processor runing windows 64, 6gb of ram, 200 gb hard drive. Of course I do not want to do a clean install of windows because I have a great deal on my HD I do not want to loose. Thank you in advance for your help!!

Hello. Today when computer started automatically to run windows update, I had found it in BSOD state with message "REFERENCE BY POINTER" or something like that. I tried three following reboots but it always happened again. So I booted to safe mode (with networking) and than back to normal mode and it somehow fixed it.

Also there were other BSOD without any useful message. These usually happens after fresh reboot, before the desktop is shown. Than another reboot directly to normal mode is ok and works fine for a like time. I use hibernation most of the time and it recovers fine from it pretty fine.

It's been almost a week, I've had BSOD came up randomly once throughout the day, then the second day, it happened multiple times. I tried calling Microsoft support for help by speaking to their agents and after following their troubleshooting process, my laptop became worse to the point where I couldn't even get past the login screen and my correct password was seen as an incorrect password. I tried system restore, rebooting in safe mode, and a factory reset and the problem persisted. I asked Microsoft Support what to do next and they said my only option was a clean installation of Windows which required another PC and USB Drive. Haven't been using my PC for days until now.

I then called MSI and they told me the same thing, otherwise I had to go get it sent to a technician or mail it to them to get it fixed. Two days ago, I then did the clean installation of Windows as suggested using the creation media tool, downloaded all of the necessary drivers for the model of my laptop and there was no BSOD error while I was getting my PC up to date.

I cannot find my XP disk but I do have a new retail copy of 7 home premium 64 bit. I was hoping I could fix the problem with that. I have changed the boot priority in BIOS to the DVD drive but it doesn't load, the disk spins up for a few seconds before spinning back down. This repeats for approx 30 seconds before giving up and booting the hard drive.

You cant use a win 7 dvd to "repair" an XP install.

You have to either download an XP image, or if you have a valid key for win 7 install that.

Hi people, 'boot problems' means not waking from sleep, requiring a reboot, and often not starting at all. And when starting after several minuets (4 or 5) of black screen and nothing happening requiring a small button reboot or a big start button reboot several times in a row after minuets of black screen before it starts. And on starting it always bsod's (video_tdr) and restarts itself. This has been happening for weeks then today I've had to do this 6 times, black screen no flickering even, just the computer whirring away and the little red activity led flashing its head off or solid, and no amount of reboots after several mins of nothing worked, until I cold rebooted it. Then once it starts after the "video_tdr_nvlddmkm.sys" bsod and auto reboot it works fine. Turning it off from the wall seems to be the only reliable way to get the thing to start - after the bsod restart. The system had been reliable for years, it slowly got worse after I upgraded to win 8 and 8.1. I've upgraded all of the drivers that I can, the 2008 bios is the latest as far as I can tell from gigabytes web page. I had it back to the shop that I bought it from 3 weeks ago for the bsod on startup and they put more fans in it, but it didn't help. I have included the SF file, cpu-z shots and mini dumps and I hope that someone can interpret them for me. I have been reading on line and trying things for a few weeks now, to fix it myself, but I can't.

Hi,

If there is any overclocking of bus speed, cpu, ram or gpu, set default instead.

Uninstall AVG, use the removal tool after, then set Windows Defender and Windows Firewall to Automatic and start them too.

Uninstall Networx. networx networx.sys Tue Nov 19 12:06:28 2013 (528B9A94)

Uninstall Smart Defrag until issue is cleared.

You're using mismatched modules, so remove the Kingston from the machine physically.

Please no "but this that or the other thing." I gave my analysis and wish not to say any more, UNLESS you have done everything and still need help (which you won't) - so with that -

Hello and welcome Galore mate some system specs would be really helpful - very hard working with something one knows very little about. System Info - See Your System Specs

However at first look seems like the system is in a mess or the hard drive or other components are going south.

Now just do this if you get a boot then it might narrow the issue/s down a little and you will need toake the bootable disk on another machine.
BOOTABLE UBUNTU
Make a bootable Ubuntu disk Download Ubuntu Desktop | Download | Ubuntu
Set the BIOS to boot from the optical when the machine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL > select TRY not INSTALL
When it is finished - it takes very little time you will get a screen like in the pic .
Open the drive you want > User and dig down until you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy / paste the material you want to an external source or other installed drive doing this.
I am not sure if it will but I have recovered tons of data etc using this method both on "dead" or just plain drives that you cannot get data from using Windows.

Just run it until you get the screen ignore the data stuff though it might come in handy later - if this will not boot then something is very wrong.

Hello everyone, Here is my issue. I just got a deal on a brand new HP Probook 450 G3 that came with a 1To HDD and Windows 10 pre-installed. I used the spare money to purchase an Windows 7 Pro x64 license and a Sandisk 256Gb SSD. My intention was to pull the original HDD out and do a clean install of Windows 7 on the SSD. I have gone absolutely bonkers after 72 hours of trying... Sorry in advance if I state the obvious or if I do not use the right wording. I know a little but am definitely not a wiz. So here goes.  PROBLEM 1: Impossible to Enable Secure Boot and Install Windows 7 I unplugged the HDD and swapped it with the SSD. Using Rufus, I created a bootable USB stick formatted as Fat32 and partitioned as GPT since my Bios defaults to UEFI. I stuck the USB device in the computer, went to F10 - BIOS Setup. My BIOS is version N78 Ver. 1.06 12/18/2015 (latest). The USB device is properly recognized as a UEFI device. In BIOS Setup  >>  Advanced  >>  Secure Boot Configuration, I switched to Legacy Support Enable and Secure Boot Disable then Save. In Boot Options, I unchecked Fast Boot. Below, UEFI Boot Order is greyed out and cannot be unchecked. Only the device booting order can be tweaked so I ranked the USB device first.

A:Impossible to Disable Secure Boot

The simplest method is to use a SATA to usb adapter and a  cloning utility. I have an Apricorn adapter and Acorn cloning utility that was delivered with a Crucial SSD I purchased as a migration kit.  Other great cloning utilities are Paragon software's  Migrate OS to SSD. Using this method takes about 30 minutes or therabouts. If you prep the SSD with the Diskpart utility you should be able to use the recovery media to install the operating system. Once the SSD has been cleaned, a partition created, has been formatted ,  and been made active  then there shouldn'd be an issue using it as the primary disk in a notebook.

So recently, after trying out the Windows 7 RC 32-bit for a couple of months, I decided to try to install normal Windows 7 64-bit as a fresh clean install. Upon installing Windows 7 64-bit, everything went smoothly and entered the desktop. However, after being in the desktop for 5 seconds, the computer restarted itself and then went into system recovery. Finding this strange, I loaded up the installation disc and tried to repair the OS to see if there were any problems, but it found none. While still being in the disc installation screen, I tried to reformat and install Windows 7 32-bit instead, thinking it was a 64-bit problem. However, it did the exact same thing the 64-bit installation did.

Thinking that Windows 7 might have been a problem, I decided to go back to Vista so I could at least have an OS on my computer. I used System recovery to revert back to the OS that is defaulted on my computer (Vista 32-bit Home Premium with bloatware) and tried to go to 64-bit on that. However, this also yielded the same problem and did the same when I tried to fresh install 32-bit as well.

I'm currently running off the backup that came off my computer from Gateway, but I'm seriously confused as to why I cannot install any OS on my computer whatsoever, when I've clearly reformatted Vista 32-bit in the past. I haven't tried upgrading to the Windows 7 RC again, because I've already spent 4 days reformatting, re-installing, and trying multiple things I've f... Read more

Earlier today, I downloaded a file to install a program... Whilst installing it, my virus detector popped up that there was a trojan in the file.
I immediately told the detector to move the virus to the chest and moved to stop the installation, but it went quickly, and finished.

I made a move to go and uninstall the program but got distracted by my brother calling me, for maybe, 3 seconds, if that. Next thing I looked at the computer to see it was restarting.
First thought was "uh oh, not good"

It got to the loading screen for Windows XP and then bluescreened out and started over again.
I immediately hit F8 to try Safe mode.

Yesterday I got a blue screen for no apparent reason.
About a month ago, I got the same screen, but when I rebooted everything appeared to be working normally.

This time, I shut it down after the bsod, and started it today. I booted in Safe Mode, just to make sure everything was working properly, but it froze, and brought me to Startup Repair. Startup Repair asked me if I wanted to try to restore to an earlier version, and I said yes, but now it's saying 'Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

I attached a picture of the blue screen and the startup repair.

I don't really know where to go from here...

I really don't want to lose my personal files! I just ordered a 200gb external hard drive off amazon to back my stuff up, and I would hate it if I lost all my stuff before I got the chance.

Any ideas?

If its a laptop just pull out the drive and use a usb ide/sata connector to salvage what you dont want to lose to your friends computer if they will let you. Then put the info on cds/dvds until you get the external hard drive. On cds they will be safe for a long while until needed again.

I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to configure this laptop to dual boot Windows 7 and 8.1, unless anyone knows better. The issue seems to be with the BIOS settings which appear to be mutually exclusive to booting either Windows 7 or Windows 8.x ? but not both.

I ?downgraded? the pre-installed, bloatware ridden Windows 8.1 on this laptop to a clean install of Windows 7 Pro with no problems using default Windows 7 BIOS settings (Win 7 OS, load default settings) on a 500GB partition using DISKPART as per directions on this site. The problem occurs when trying to install Windows 8.1 on the remaining unallocated 500GB partition on my hard drive using these Windows 7 optimised BIOS settings. When booting 8.1 directly from USB (downloaded 8.1 ? same version - using Windows media creation tool as I have OEM key in BIOS) the installation will freeze (no mouse pointer) on the initial ?select keyboard layout? screen.

Hello,

My Toshiba Satellite U400 wasn't working well at all (very slow) because of an old and infested installation of Windos Vista. I formatted with a live-cd of GParted, in order to install a new version of Windows.

But since I formatted it, I can't even boot on a CD (I checked of course the priority boot option in the BIOS)... I tried with others live-cd (linux ones) to check if the problem was from my CD and not my computer... Well, it seems that it comes from my computer.

After long hours of searching, I found out that there was a restoration partition set by Toshiba, and I probably erased it, but I don't see how it could affect the boot options.

Any suggestions ? I'm starting to be desesperate

Have a good day,

Hi all,
I have a laptop with pre-installed Win8x64 and wanted to try dual booting with an additional Win7x64 VHD install (on a single physical disk), in order to challenge performances.

Everything ran quite fine (repartitioning, VHD attachment, install). But, at bootup-time, though I got the blue modern boot wizard raising with my two OS entries, I only can regularly boot on Windows 8. Any attempt on booting Windows 7 leads to Windows 8's "preparing restore..." screen and I'm back to some WinPE-style assistant that allows me to boot on Windows 8, or reboot the laptop...

I tried using Boyans' DualBoot repair tool with no luck. Only get a cryptic (to me) error message that somebody (himself? ^^) is presumably able to explain to me.
Please do, then.

Well this is the second computer I've gotten in less than a week with similar symptoms so I thought I'd see what everyone thinks.

Just got machine. Plugged her in, turned on, got to the Windows 7 boot splash, sat there for a very long time, and hit BSOD!

STOP: c0000218 {Registry File Failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\systemroot\system32\config\system
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.

Now obvious signs point to registry is long since gone missing. Well I'm thinking different.

First off I booted up into a recovery console from the advanced boot options menu. Everything got in just fine and I opened the console up and tried to do a chkdsk /f.

chkdsk /f
The disk is write-protected.

Hmm, that's the exact same problem I had on the machine I had a few days ago. (though it never gave me the BSOD registry stop. I should really just stop talking about that machine the owner just said reformat it so I did)

So in trying to get at least a chkdsk to run, I went into diskpart.exe and was poking around. System drive is not read-only and is healthy. Smart also says drive tests fine. Hmm...

Next try a system restore, well simply that failed. It couldn't write to the drive...

Checked Bios next. Nothings funky. Restored it to defaults and tried booting anyways. Nada.

Seems to me like most of the system is just fine, just something is blocking everything from writing to the drive.

A:BSOD upon startup. No boot. Registry Cannot load System hive

The problem is you are trying to run chkdsk on X:, which is the virtual hard disk created by the recovery software. You need to change to C:, D:, or E: (most systems have a C: partition in restore that is system reserved and a D: drive that is the Windows partition; if a vendor created a recovery partition, drive E: may also exist).Use Advanced Boot Options to select Repair Your Computer and get to the System Recovery Options. Then select the command prompt. Do the following:chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
chkdsk /r e:
chkdsk /r f:.etc until you get the message that the volume could not be opened for direct access. For any drives that do not give the message:
Windows has checked the file system and found no problems
run chkdsk again as above. In other words, if it says:
Windows has made corrections to the file system
after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

Hello 7 forums,

My computer started experiencing crashes and errors a month ago and after receiving the BSOD my computer has failed to start entirely; safe mode hangs on crcdisk.sys, startup hangs on welcome screen and I get the BSOD while booting OS.

I want to erase and reformat my HD.

My question is; if I format my drive on my other PC (Windows Vista Home premium 32bit) or switch out HDs and use my Vista 32bit install disk. . . would I be able to wipe the drive and be able to use it? Or would the drivers be incompatible? Basically my only option is to buy a Vista Home Premium 64bit disk, but I'm considering the alternatives. . . help please?

Hey Win7 forums,

Recently, my computer has been freezing while doing various things (games, web browsing, whatever.) The computer will sotp responding for a few seconds, then the screen will turn black, and after another 5 seconds, it will turn on again with a popup "AMD display driver has successfully recovered from a crash"

Now, after doing this once or twice, the computer will BSOD, with the error "ATIKMPAG.SYS"

I am completely unable to turn the computer on, as it BSOD's on startup, and then repeats its self-booting cycle.

I've updated the BIOS, (that bricked the whole thing, so i took out the BIOS battery and reset it)
I've made sure all Windows updates are installed.
I've tried MANY different driver versions. 12.10, 13.1, 13.4 beta, etc. The weirdest thing is, the last time I had updated was months ago and it was working just fine, and it was the most recent update, and then all of a sudden this starts to happen.

I've also thoroughly googled it and tried what it's suggested but that hasn't worked.

I don't know what else to try. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:Error: ATIKMPAG.SYS. Bsod on startup, unable to successfully boot.

Can you boot into Safe Mode ?
If you can, Uninstall The elements of ATI/AMD display driver (including the Catalyst Control Center) from Control Panel > Programs and Features. Then follow Drivers - Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling to free up the leftovers. Now install another version of the display driver and observe the situation. Is it just the same? If so, it is nothing but a failing GPU. Change the GPU. In the mean time use the onboard graphics.

Hello, This is my first custom built computer. I've had the same similar problem for the past year. I have continuous problems starting up and BSOD. My computer will not start up properly at times. It also seems like this problem happens if my computer is off, not in sleep mode, for longer than 24 hours. It involves several restarts. I've checked my hard drive and memory for bad sectors and not found anything. I've run both the memtest and the windows memory test several times and found no problems.

There was one post I found on a seperate site that talked about ASRock m/b having problem with Ram voltage so I've manually changed the BIOS to be the voltage required for the Ram. Seemed like it fixed it temporarily but quickly started getting more BSOD.

Recently updated AMD drivers and was completely unable to get into Windows. When I restored the system to before the AMD updates I was able to get into Windows.

A:BSOD on startup, several startups and repairs required to boot Windows

Software Concerns:Recommend removing your ASRock utilities through Start Menu -> Control Panel -> Uninstall a program. They can provide software interfaces with the hardware for overclocking, and even when the overclock is not enabled, that interface can cause instability. They are also not needed for the system to function properly and may reduce system resources.

Remove any fast USB charging utilities. Such utilities put the usb ports in an unnatural power state that can cause instability and crashes.
Analysis:Crashes primarily point to memory issues.If you are overclocking any hardware, please stop.

Run the boot version of Memtest86+ paying close attention to Parts 2 and 3 of the tutorial. Also, in case Memtest86+ misses anything and comes up with no errors, run the extended version of the Windows Memory Diagnostics Tool for at least five passes. These you may want to run overnight since they take a long time to complete (run them an hour before bed each of the next two nights and check before going to sleep that they are still running).


   Warning
Before you proceed with the following, answer these two questions: Are you still under warranty? Does your warranty allow you to open up the machine to check hardware? If you are unsure of the answers to these questions, contact your system manufacturer. WARNING: The steps that follow can void your warranty!!!

but lately ive only been getting the before-log on crash.

Attatched are the two folders i could get before it crashed. it seems to not like when i try fixing my computer.

The newest stuff is in minidump.rar i think.
i couldnt click fast enough to get a brand new one.

My Computer's about a year or two old, its been not used for months because of the bluescreens.
Its A Acer Gateway DX4831
it has 1TB of HDD and 6GB of ram, it Runs on windows 7 home premium and i have done two clean reinstalls already.
if was running on something different at first, it was still windows 7, the bluescreens started happening ages ago so i cant really determine what could of started them.
but i do remember the fact that it started with one blue screen every once in awhile, then they started to build up.
Im not very educated in fixing computers, so if i am told to do something i might need instructions on how to do so.
it is a 64 bit
what else..Its never been anything other than a acer gateway, and its been under a week since the last clean reinstall.
ive tried numerous amounts of things. During the clean reinstall i would constantly get bluescreens
I will post updates if anything happens.

I'm a very wordy person so to avoid that I'm going to do this in point form and if you need any other info, please ask.

Running: Win XP Media Center on HP Pavilion m7690n, 2 Samsung HDD 250GB ea. (Can't remember the RAM or anything else...)

History: Previous crash due to corrupt registry Jan 07. Fixed with HP Recovery, no data lost.

Now: Windows will not load. Have tried all the options it gives on the black screen (Safe mode, last good config, normally, etc.) All just cause reboot. Except Safe mode scrolls through a list of drivers and such before hanging for a minute...then rebooting.

Can't access recovery, also causes reboot and never actually goes into the program.

Have removed HDD and used it as an external HDD on my Macbook. It recognizes the drive, and the partition which holds the Recovery.

Most files are intact, with the exception of My Pictures and My Music (containing my digi cam photos and all purchased iTunes music ...) My Documents and all other sub-folders are still present, and now contains strange new sub-folder called "My Documentsimages".

Recovery partitioned section seems to be empty.

HDD will not be recognized when hooked up to old IBM, Pen 3, Win XP. Error msg: "Error performing inpage operation." Still works on Macbook.

Other HDD is fine and working well. Just the boot HDD won't work.
I don't have WinXP discs, or HP Recovery discs... They never came with my comp...

First:
Is there anyway to ... Read more

Dear Sir, Madam,
I would like to know whether you have the solution to the following as I found it, when attempting to boot Windows 7 in Safe mode or in any other other way that it is just not possible and full OS re-installation seems to be the only solution to be able
to get the system working, I have found how to do it with a simple MS DOS prompt command using 11 characters after over 24 hours of trying different things. Would you be interested to know and purchase this information from me?
My phone number is the following: +32 472/49 38 14
My email is the following [email protected]
Best Regards,

Arnaud Verscheure

Hello and thank you in advance for the help provided. I have been working on a Dell N5010 with 4GB Ram and 1TB HDD.
 
The unit would only boot into Safe Mode, however after running a few different virus scans (and a few maintenance tasks) the machine no longer boots into safe mode. I'm not positive if the virus scans are what caused this or (attempting) to fix a few other things like permissions. It could have been after an update, however I am not sure.
 
The BSOD is: 0XF4
 
I checked the HDD and the RAM for errors. (Seatools and memtest86) Everything was fine that way.
 
Startup repair states it cannot fix the problem.
 
When I try system restore it says: "0x80071A91 An unspecified error occured during system restore."
 
I tried sfc /scannow and it states that a System Repair is pending which is required to complete.
 
When using the scannow with /offbootdir and /offwindir it states that it found errors but was unable to fix some of them. Details included in cbs.log
The CBS log does not contain updated information, the last date recorded was 2 weeks ago. I renamed the CBS log in hopes of it created a new one, however it does not create a new log.
 
I tried:
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /scanos (Installations of Windows found: 0) 
bootrec /rebuildbcd (Installations of Windows found: 0) 
 
I backed up, renamed the BCD and tried again, but got the same error with 0 installations found.... Read more

A:BSOD at Boot. Startup Repair, System Restore, Scannow and BCD all have errors.
