    [Win10] Help with Windows repair loop

    My computer is stuck in the repair loop. I have tried everything that can on the options it gives. I have a screen shot where it says system bad config.[Win10] Help with Windows repair loop-img_2078-jpg

    Re: Help with Windows 10 repair loop

    Hi amy.

    How did you get it?
    Did you restore a partition?
    Did you use a third party disk cleaner or registry cleaner?
    Did it appear without you did anything before?

    Can you boot in safe mode (all the three options)?
    Did you try the windows startup repair?

    Hi! I have tried all of the above. None worked. The computer just froze up while using it so I restarted it and it went to the repair loop. I had it do this before but it ended up being a registry issue I believe.

    Correct, one of the essential Machine Hives is corrupted, guess Software is not readable completly.

    If you are able to go back to an earlier restorepoint manualy , extracting all hives and replace them to there original place, the machine might come up again.

    The repair-feature of MS is not able to fix that.

    How do I do that? When I try the option it says no restore point. All I have access to is command box.

    if there are no restorepoints all you can try via ShadowExplorer.com - Downloads to get access to the structure if any chance exists.
    Otherwise, safe the data offline and rebuild your system.

    Hey Amy,

    Looks like Bug Check 0x74:
    BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO

    Basically this means the SYSTEM hive is corrupted. If you are not able to boot with Last Known Good Config then you can use regback. If regback does not resolve the problem you will have to restore from backup or reinstall the OS.

    If the corruption did not effect the backup hives this will resolve the issue.
    1. Paste the following into notepad
    2. Replace All "H:" with the letter than corresponds to your windows installation.
    3. To find the litter of your OS installation you can enter diskpart and type list vol from winRE. #note this can change every time you boot into winRE
    4. Save the file as regback.bat and copy it over to the effected system in the Windows directory.

    Code:
    md tmp
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\system h:\windows\tmp\system.bak
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\software h:\windows\tmp\software.bak
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\sam h:\windows\tmp\sam.bak
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\security h:\windows\tmp\security.bak
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\default h:\windows\tmp\default.bak
    del h:\windows\system32\config\system
    del h:\windows\system32\config\software
    del h:\windows\system32\config\sam
    del h:\windows\system32\config\security
    del h:\windows\system32\config\default
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\regback\system h:\windows\system32\config\system
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\regback\software h:\windows\system32\config\software
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\regback\sam h:\windows\system32\config\sam
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\regback\security h:\windows\system32\config\security
    copy h:\windows\system32\config\regback\default h:\windows\system32\config\default
    writhziden says thanks for this.
