New boot problem

Postby dproff » Fri Oct 21, 2016 8:56 pm

I have been using Dual Boot Pro successfully for at least 5 years, but now I have a problem. I have 2 Windows 10 partitions and went to my secondary Win10 partition this morning. While there I noticed a prompt to "fix drive errors" and I clicked that when I was through with the second partitions tasks. The computer came up, did about 1 minute of disk repair, and then will not access my primary 10 partition. The error says something cannot be accessed and to use the "fix option" on the install disk. It was not successful so I am stuck. I will follow plea with another edit with the exact error message in a bit.

The message read (shortened by me):
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
Insert system disk.
Choose language
Click repair your computer.

Below that it has:

Boot using your Windows 10 DVD, drill down to repair your computer & do a "startup repair", maybe run startup repair twice to make sure.

Sorry for the delay. I was out of town for 3 days.

I tried Startup Repair first thing, but it failed with a message that Startup Repair could not fix whatever this problem is. The program then offered to start a re-installation of Win10. I did not go to that because I don't want to lose all my apps.

Is there anything else I can try other than a Win10 re-installation?
