Run SFC /scannow and chkdsk

Sounds like corruption on hard drive.

May I know if any new hardware or software was installed before this problem ?

Also had you tried in last known good configuration yet?

Can you try to boot in recovery mode once (startup recovery) and let us know till what point you are going.

If you are able to go till startup recovery option run the startup repair and give us the log file.
that will help us to findout error and solve the issue.


Was there any antivirus installed on this machine? Seems there is a virus or malware attack on your machine.

NO hardware or software was installed.
When I try last know good config, I get the same thing..windows doesn't boot.

Also, the raid shows degraded, but I have run diags on all the drives and they show ok.

I am about to upload the log file....

Where startup repair finishes, the only error in the log says a recent driver installation or upgrade is causing the issue.....
