I have a computer that is experiencing the following error in the image below. When going into advanced options to go to the command line, I get an X prompt with the loaded tools used to try to fix the issue.
What's weird is heading over to the C drive gives me mixed results. At first using the command "cd c:" would keep me at the x prompt. After several minutes, typing in the exact same command took me to "c:\windows" but there was no system 32 and very few files listed, even if I went to the root.
Does anyone have any ideas? I know I need to read the srttrail.txt file to get the exact issue but I can't even make my way to that directory let alone that log file. This is an HP Pavilion p7-1421 PC.
I did a utility diagnostic scan from HP and the drive checked out. I tried to use a linux disk to boot from (after having to turn off that stupid secure boot) but it doesn't seem to find the correct partition that way either.
