Automatic Repair failed, Start-up Repair failed and Recovery failed in Windows 10

Hi,

Automatic Repair failed, Start-up Repair failed and Recovery failed are common issues in Windows 10.

I think most of Windows 10 users are getting frustrated with these issues.
Any of these issues can occur randomly in any working computer.

All three issues can be different but in most cases we troubleshoot with similar steps.

At the end, if no troubleshooting steps work, we have to do Windows Clean installation using bootable media like flash drive. After clean installation, installed applications gone and data is also at risk.

Because of such issues, sometimes we feel insecurity of data and applications installed.

Related to these issues, I have queries as.

  1. What can be dos and don’ts for avoiding such issues?

  2. While troubleshooting sometimes we use commands like
    chkdsk c: /r
    sfc /scannow
    bootrec /scanos
    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /rebuildbcd
    However, we’re not sure that issues will be resolved. And at the end, Clean Installation is required.

  3. If any definitive solution for such issues, please let us know.

With Regards
NndnG

It's doubtful there would be a "catch all" solution. It's going to depend on what happens to determine a course of action. Not all problems are recoverable.

There are many causes of failure to boot: problems with the operating system, problems with the boot sector, problems with the CMOS battery, problems with RAM, problems with the BIOS, problems with the disk drive, etc.

They require the process of elimination and then definitive troubleshooting steps once the problem is identified.

Older Windows versions had Regback and Microsoft decided to make that no longer automatic.

Custom install is another method.


Best practice is to make free backup images and save the images to another disk drive and/or the cloud.

Saving the backup image to another disk drive makes them easily available.
A backup image is typically restored in less than one hour and often less than thirty minutes.

Another backup image could be saved to the cloud in case there is flood, hurricane, tornado, tusami, volcano eruption, fire, or other unexpected problems related to mother nature.

An additional option is to backup files to another drive or the cloud.

Microsoft had offered backups but they were depreciated.


These are some third party software that offer free and pay back up images:
Acronis
Aoemi
EaseUS
Macrium
Paragon
etc.
