Hi Thaifood.....,

I'm Nathan, a fellow Microsoft customer and expert user here to help.

What registry key is missing?

I would suggest running these Windows/system repairs to see if these repairs will create this missing registry entry:
- Open Command Prompt as administrator (search for it within the Windows start menu > right-click > run as administrator)
- Enter: sfc /scannow
- Once the scan finishes, enter: dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
- Once the scan finishes, reboot
- Once rebooted, login and check if the registry entry exists

Please let me know how this goes so I can further advise.

Hope this helps,
Nathan

It actually wont let me log on, it goes to the blue "recovery" page.mapparently there are no admin users on my pc for some reason so i cant go to command prompt either. It was stuck in the automatic repair loop before so i disabled automatic repair and it brought me to where i am now.

The error code is 0xc0000225

the file is \WINDOWS\system32\config\system

Hi Thaifood.....,

Thanks for letting me know.

I would suggest running through the following troubleshooting steps to see if you can get beyond this repair loop: https://windowsreport.com/windows-10-automatic-...

If you need the Windows 10 recovery/installation media, this can be downloaded from the following Microsoft website by selecting 'Download tool now': https://www.microsoft.com/software-download/win...

Please let me know how this goes.

Hope this helps,
Nathan

Hi Thaifood

Start your PC, just as Windows attempts to load (spinning dots), press and hold Power Button for 5 - 10 seconds to perform a Hard Shut Down

Do this twice

On the third start Windows will boot into the Recovery Environment and from there you can access System Repair, Safe Mode, Command Prompt . . . etc.

Please try each option one at a time, then see of Windows will boot . . .

Go to Troubleshoot - Advanced Option - Startup Repair
See if Windows startup can repair itself

Go to Troubleshoot - Advanced Option - System Restore
Check to see if you have a restore point you can go back to

If you do not have a Restore Point, go to Troubleshoot - Advanced Option - Startup Settings and click Restart
Upon restart, press 4 to enter Safe Mode
Once in Safe Mode, backup your data if you do not already have a backup
Open Device Manager and check to make sure all your Drivers are up to date
Reboot to see if Windows will start Normally

If the above fails, go to Troubleshoot - Advanced Options - Reset this PC
Choose to keep your files and apps, just your files or to keep nothing
Then start the Reset
