Windows 10 boot issue
Posted on 2016-09-09
HP Pavilion 500-424 Windows 10 PC boots to HP logo and a spinning circle. It will run in that state for days. The PC will never boot to Windows. I can enter System Recovery by pressing Escape, then F11. I don't want to Reset this PC, but I've:
1. Ran sfc /scannow from the Command Prompt
2. Ran chkdsk /r (5 stages)
3. Removed the hard drive and ran chkdsk
4. Removed the hard drive and ran malware scans
When I hook up the hard drive in a dock, it is immediately recognized and I can see all the files on the hard drive. I could recover them but I have programs on it that I don't want to lose. Therefore, would much prefer a repair than a full reset or recovery.
Any help on this topic?
