Thank you for the screenshots. That made sure that this is not a bad sector related concern. This might have something to do with the recent Windows update.

Disable the Automatic repair by typing bcedit /set recoverenabled no in the Command Prompt, reboot your PC and check the Windows Update history (Start > Settings > Update & security > Update history)  if there was an update prior to the concern. Provide us a screenshot of the update (If there is any)

If there's no update, check your drivers if there was a recent update.

We look forward to your response.

All the best.

Thanks for your feedback.

bcedit was not recognized as an internal or external command.

I searched disabling the automatic repair via the command line and found: BCDedit /set recoveryenabled no. This operation was "completed successfully." However upon rebooting the computer the automatic repair was not disabled and I was not able to continue to windows in order to check the parameters you suggested and obtain the requested screen shot.

Apologies for the typo. Are you using a desktop? We're planning to do a more in-depth troubleshooting however, we want to know other troubleshooting steps you've done aside from the above mentioned for us to avoid redundancy.
