Hi, I have a Windows 10 machine that keeps coming up with Preparing Automatic Repair, Diagnosing your PC, and then Your PC did not start correctly. Thru the Troubleshooting / Advance options, I tried System Restore to an earlier date. It said the restore was successful. Then I got the same old Preparing Auto Repair which didn't solve the issue. I also tried Safe Mode - Same issue - It comes with Auto repair which finishes but doesn't fix the problem. I tried Uninstalling the latest quality update. It completes, but same issue I removed the drive and ran a chkdsk /r - no issues found. It's still not booting properly. I ran sfc /scannow /offbootdir=e:\ /offwindir=e:\windows with the drive connected to another W10 machine. (The partition with Windows was e.) I ran a Malwarebytes Antimalware scan with the drive attached to another W10 machine. I have USB install media drive. I understand I can use it to repair W10 the PC and keep the user files. I'd rather keep both user files and applications. Any ideas please?
