Hi Stan,

To check for possible caused of this issue, we advise that you perform SFC scan when that scan completes, run this command in CMD "chkdsk c: /f /r " and hit Enter. That command will fail, as Windows cannot check your disc while Windows is running, you will be asked if you want to run check disc at startup, choose yes. Then shut your system down and restart it to run disc check.

Feel free to get back to us if you need further assistance.

Computer crashed
Now when booting up, it starts to load windows, and goes to a black screen.

Doing some research and running a diagnostic and the log file said Bootres.dll corrupt and couldnt be repaired.

After searching on the Net

Tried running the SCAN + the Chckdsk commands..

It did not repair the corrupt bootres.dll.

Windows version 1709

Under normal boot computer goes to black screen..

Restart 2-3 times

tried the repair option.. did not work

Tried the Step by Step startup, and the computer works perfectly (slower startup)

Reboot, and it goes to a black screen when starting to load windows 10..

Restart 2-3 times  and Step by Step startup... works fine get into Windows.

Tried downloading and installing Windows 10 ISO, gets to 84% and fails.

Tried a few times no luck.

The computer tried to install the new Windows update and failed..

Tried recovering to previous version.. worked fine,  reversed new applications, but still black screen as it starts to load windows after BIOS check.

I am in the same situation, I can not get it repaired by SFC or CHKDSK.
All this came as a result of a security update of the 1803 April version.
I'm desperate, how can I repair the bootres.dll file, and in what folder is it located?

Hi

To get into Windows I had to user Boot Step by step advanced startup option.

I got to this by hitting the reset 3 times in succession, as it was trying to start Windows, then selected advanced Startup.

Once in Windows it worked OK, but if it restarted... Black Screen!

I wasnt able to fix the problem on my own.

I called Microsoft support, and they got a senior technician to call me back.

He was very knowledgeable, and in an hour he had cleaned up Windows, removing all Antivirus and startup programs, and non Windows services. He was too quick for me to see exactly what else he had done.

But once he had this sorted, I reinstalled Windows 10 Pro (from their site)

Then I did the update to version 1803.

It has been working like a dream since then.

This guy was an absolutely master technician I was watching him work remotely on my PC, and he knew his oats... I cannot praise him enough.

He said the possible reasons for the windows update failing - is

Anti-Virus,other Security programs, and startup programs and services, which may block the process and cause corruption...

Good Luck

Good day all… well not such a good day… I spent a hours yesterday back tracking into the history on my system looking for any hint of what I did to fix this but was unable to find any clue as to what I did. Frustrated as hell.

I’m 76 years old and my memory’s not that good these days, sorry I’m not more help.

Best of luck guys

Stan.

Hello, I had the same issue since yesterday and I just fixed I don't know why and how it works. (I'm french and I found the names of the options in english on howtogeek there will not have comprehension issues I hope) So, when you are in the Recovery screen, you select "See advanced repair options",  then you have 3 options:

- Continue

- Troubleshoot

- Turn off your PC

You select the second option and you select again the second choice "Advanced options". Then you have 6 options, one of them is "Startup Settings" you select it and reboot the computer. Then you have 9 options, and we need and the seventh option "Disable driver signature enforcement". Windows will load but it took me something like 5 minutes. It was reaaaaaly slow but my computer booted. The only thing left is that I don't know if 10 will still boot if we restart the computer.
