Hi Jeff…

I’ve been thinking about this and I DID do a backup of just my data and reformatted drive C and did a clean load… now I know that I said I couldn’t remember what I did BUT I did reformat the drive.

Do that and get a clean start, it’s a full day’s work but when you think of the time wasted then it’s time well spent.

By the way a purchased a USB hard drive for £40 then after I had a clean drive C I did the Microsoft backup and restore (Windows 7) onto it so that I can do a “clean reload” with in a very short time frame.

Happy hunting…

Regards

Stan.

Hi guys ! issue FIXED!

For those who face the same issue (unable to boot windows 10 with "C:\windows\System32\LogFiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt" showing "C:\efi\microsoft\boot\resources\custom\bootres.dll is corrupted)", here's what I did

First you need to create a bootable USB flash drive to install Windows 10
Insert the flash drive in your PC and reboot from it
Select Repair your computer
Select Troubleshoot
Choose Command Prompt

Type in the command:
Diskpart

Type in the command:
List disk (you have to note which disk is your boot drive number)

Type in the command:
Sel disk 0 (0 is my boot drive number)

Type in the command:
List vol (you have to note which volume is the EFI partition)

Type in the command:
Sel vol 4 (volume 4 is my EFI partition)

Type in the command:
assign letter=V:

Type in the command:
Exit

Now you can format the EFI partition:
format V: /FS:FAT32

After the format you need to recreate the EFI directory structure

Type in the command:
bcdboot C:\windows /s V: /f UEFI (C is your system partition)

Exit the command prompt and reboot the PC

Please let me know if it worked for you
Thanks
Jeff

Hi,

I have the same problem, but I found a workaround, select Advanced options and choose "See more options", choose StartUp settings and restart. Once the computer restart, select "Disable drivers signature enforcement".
The computer starts normally now, for one time…
I couldn’t find the driver failing, reinstalled all new version without success.

When I see your solution, I tried it without using a USB flash device, using the command line option from Advanced options.
It was a very bad idea, after that my machine didn't start at all.

Using a USB flash device, I could repair the boot sequence following your method.
It still doesn't work, but now the failing files was displayed (C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\sfvfs02.dll). It's the StarForce Protection driver. I Don't know the game who installed it.

One more reboot with "Disable drivers signature enforcement", update of the StarForce protection and now It work great.

Maybe this can help someone.

Hello Fernanda, 

I tried this solution but didn’t work for me. The only fix for me was clean install from bootable DVD, (USB for me), try to backup your data at first, after clean install. Now it seems everything works fine.

I am also having the same problem.  I was able to delete the corrupt boot.dll file, although srttrail.txt still shows it s being corrupt - but it is not in the root directory.

I don't know if I've messed anything up, but I have tried most of the solutions here and am not able to solve it at all.  I also do not have a bootable image of Windows 10 (or any type of reinstallation media).  I was able to pull some data off, but am at risk of losing a bunch of e-mails which are in specific folders.  I tried accessing Outlook by accessing the drive by booting with my old drive (Windows 7) and using Explorer to try and open Outlook - but all I got was errors.  I was able to open another Outlook Window and get the last 1100 e-mails, but am still missing many important e-mails. (ugh). 

So this is a multi-fold question.  Is there any hope to get beyond the "Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC" or "is there a way to create a bootable disk for WIN 10 by going directly to the windows file in Explorer? or

"Is there a way to open Outlook from the Explorer file" (all I get is an error).

So frustrating as it seems this is a result of the latest updates from Microsoft.

Any and all help is appreciated.
