I have an ASUS Desktop computer running Windows 10.
It restarted on its own and then shows that it is Preparing Automatic Repair. Then it shows Diagnosing your PC. Then it displays Recovery Options. I have tried each one and all just bring me right back to the Recovery Options screen. I ran Chkdsk /r and it ran for about 2 hours and found no bad anything. I tried to run SFC /SCANNOW and it came back immediately that it could not run it.
I tried to do the oldest Restore Point and it ran but failed and returned this message:
System restore failed while scanning the file system on the drive C:\ the drive might be corrupt. You might want to retry system restore after running chkdsk /r 0x81000204

I entered the bios and disabled the fast boot on it and then went to the next screen and selected the dvd drive; I created a Windows 10 dvd from the Windows media creation tool and burned it to a dvd. I tried to boot to it but it failed.
