Windows 10 Automatic Repair boot loop

Hi I am having a problem where I am stuck in this boot loop. I have tried,  startup repair, safemode, system restore (system restore status_wait_3 error), sfc scannow, back up and restore registry in cmd but there are no files in the (software, system, sam) dir, bootrec (access denied at the /fixboot step).

System restore also says " windows has detected file system corruption on windows 10 OS C: you must check disk for errors.  it then says no errors were found on the c  drive. 

The actual C drive is now the E drive and the new c drive is called system reserved.

I have no clue what else I can do to fix this issue.

Hi Viperveteran,

I'm Louie, a Microsoft Community member and a fellow Windows 10 user like you. Hope you're doing well and safe there.
We recommend you to try the steps below and see if it works:

- Disable Automatic Startup Repair -

1. When Boot Options start, choose Troubleshooting > Advanced Options > Command Prompt.
2. Now Command Prompt should start. Enter the following and press Enter to run it:
bcdedit /set {default}
recoveryenabled No

After you’ve done this, the Startup Repair should be disabled, and you might be able to access Windows 10 again.


- Restore Windows registry -

1. Wait for Boot Options to appear and start Command Prompt.
2. In Command Prompt, enter the following and press Enter to run it:
*Copy:
c:windowssystem32configRegBack*
c:windowssystem32config

3. If you get asked to overwrite files, type All and press Enter.
4. Now type exit and press Enter to exit Command Prompt.
5. Restart your computer and check if the issue has been resolved.

If you're still having issues, I would suggest you to try the steps provided on the link below:

chkdsk /f /r C:

The above command fixed this issue for me. Replace the C: with whatever your C drive actually is under cmd.
