How To Fix Windows 10 Automatic Repair Couldn’t Repair Your PC

Fix – Windows 10 Automatic Repair couldn’t repair your PC

Option 1 – Use Command Prompt from Windows 10 Boot Options menu.

After your computer restarts a few times, you should see Windows 10 Boot Options menu, then when Boot Options menu appears, do the following:

  1. Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced Options.
  2. Select Command Prompt from list of options.
  3. When Command Prompt appears, enter the following lines and press Enter after each line in order to run it:
    • bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd
    • bootrec.exe /fixmbr
    • bootrec.exe /fixboot
  4. Some users are also suggesting that you need to run additional chkdsk commands as well. To perform these commands, you need to know drive letters for all your hard drive partitions. In Command Prompt you should enter the following (but remember to use the letters that match your hard drive partitions on your PC):
    • chkdsk /r c:
    • chkdsk /r d:

    This is just our example, so keep in mind that you have to perform chkdsk command for every hard drive partition that you have.

  5. Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.

 

Option 2 – Boot to Safe Mode and run Command Prompt

Users have reported that “Windows 10 Automatic Repair couldn’t repair your PC” message is sometimes caused by a bad driver, such as a Microsoft Windows driver for a wireless Logitech keyboard, for example. If you’re having this problem and you use similar hardware, try this solution:

  1. After your computer restarts few times, you should boot to Boot Options menu. Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings.
  2. Click the Restart button, and your computer should now restart and give you a list of options. Choose Enable Safe Mode with Networking.

  • When Windows 10 starts, install the driver that you’ve downloaded and the issue should be resolved.

This solution is a bit tricky because you need to know which driver is causing you this problem. Even if you don’t know, you can still try this solution and skip Step 3.

Fix – Windows 10 Automatic Repair couldn’t repair your PC loop

Option 1 – Disable early launch anti-malware protection

Sometimes you might get stuck in a “Windows 10 Automatic Repair couldn’t repair your PC” loop and this could be due to Early launch anti-malware protection option. To disable this option, follow these steps:

  1. After a few restarts, you should be able toaccess Boot Menu.
  2. In the Boot Menu, choose Troubleshoot > Advanced Options >Startup Settings.
  3. Your computer should now restart and give you a list of options.
  4. Choose Disable early launch anti-malware protection (it should be option no. 8).
  5. Restart your computer, and check if the issue has been resolved.

It has been reported that this problem can sometimes appear again. If this happens, repeat all the steps and uninstall your antivirus software. Users have reported some problems with Norton 360 antivirus software (although we assume the problem can be created by other antivirus software as well), so after you’ve deleted this application, everything should go back to normal.

Option 2 – Delete the problematic file

You might get stuck in “Windows 10 Automatic Repair couldn’t repair your PC” loop due to certain files, with users having reported that sometimes VMWare files can cause this issue. To complete this process, you need to open the log file and check for which file is causing  this problem. To check the log file, you need to do the following:

  1. Access the Boot Menu. You should see it after your computer restarts a few times.
  2. Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Command Prompt.
  3. When Command Prompt opens, enter the following:
    • C:
    • cd Windows\System32\LogFiles\Srt
    • SrtTrail.txt

After the file opens, you should see something like this: Boot critical file  c:\windows\system32\drivers\vsock.sys is corrupt. We have to mention that this is just an example as you will mostly likely get a different result. Now, you need to perform some research into what exactly this problematic file does. In our case, vsock.sys was a file related to a third party application called VMWare. Since this isn’t operating system file that is required by Windows 10, we can delete it.

To delete a file, you need to navigate to the specified location using the Command Prompt and enter del command. In our example, it would look like this:

  • cd c:\windows\system32\drivers
  • del vsock.sys

Once again, this is just an example, and you might have to navigate to a different folder and delete a different file. Before deleting a file, make sure the file you want to delete isn’t a core Windows 10 file or else you can cause damage to your operating system. After you’ve removed the problematic file, restart your computer and uninstall the program that caused you this issue.

Option 3 – Disable Automatic Startup Repair

Sometimes you can get stuck in “Windows 10 Automatic Repair couldn’t repair your PC” loop and the simplest solution is just to disable Automatic Startup Repair. To do that, follow these steps:

  1. When Boot Options start, choose Troubleshooting > Advanced Options > Command Prompt.
  2. Now Command Prompt should start. Enter the following and press Enter to run it:
    • bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled No

After you’ve done this, the Startup Repair should be disabled, and you might be able to access Windows 10 again.

Option 4 – Restore Windows registry

One of the possible causes for “Windows 10 Automatic Repair couldn’t repair your PC” loop is a corrupted registry, and the only solution for this  is to restore your registry from RegBack directory. To do that, follow these steps:

  1. Wait for Boot Options to appear and start Command Prompt.
  2. In Command Prompt, enter the following and press Enter to run it:
    • copy c:\windows\system32\config\RegBack\* c:\windows\system32\config

3.  If you get asked to overwrite files, type All and press Enter.

4.  Now type exit and press Enter to exit Command Prompt.

5.  Restart your computer and check if the issue has been resolved.

 

Option 5 – Check device partition and osdevice partition

Sometimes it can happen that your device partition values aren’t correct, and this is the cause of  Windows 10 Automatic Repair couldn’t repair your PC loop. To fix this issue, follow these steps:

  1. From Boot Options start Command Prompt.
  2. Enter the following and press Enter:
    • bcdedit
  3. Find device partition and osdevice partition values and make sure that they are set to correct partition. On our device, the default and correct value is C:, but this can change for some reason to D: (or some other letter) and create problems.

4.  If the value isn’t set to C:, enter the following commands and press Enter after each one:

  • bcdedit /set {default} device partition=c:
  • bcdedit /set {default} osdevice partition=c:

5.  By default it should be C:, but if your Windows 10 is installed on a different partition, make sure that you use that partition’s letter instead of C.

6.  Restart your computer and check if the issue has been resolved.

 

If the problem still persists, I would suggest a Reset or Refresh. By doing this your installed applications will be removed but your installed Universal apps and settings will be saved if you choose the Refresh option. On the other hand, the Reset option will delete all installed files, settings and apps. If you decide to take this step, it’s advised that you backup your important files.

To perform Refresh or Reset, you need to do the following:

  1. When Boot Menu opens, choose Troubleshooting.
  2. Choose between Refresh or Reset option.
