      I’m having a really strange issue here. Sometimes when I power on my laptop, it begins an automatic repair immediately, despite the last boot being fine. I tried to disable the recovery mode using “bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled no” but now it gives the following instead:

      Status: 0xc0000001

      Info: After multiple tries, the operating system on your PC failed to start, so it needs to be repaired.

      The thing is, it has never failed to boot even once. If I hit Control+Alt+Delete at this stage, it boots fine. I’ve given it a look online but all I’m finding is users whose PCs genuinely won’t boot.

      Any ideas where I can go from here? It’s Windows 10 1909, can give more info if required.

      Have you tried disabling fast-start?

        I’ll have to double-check when I get home tonight but I don’t think it’s enabled. It’s normally one of the first things I disable when I install.

      Open a Command Prompt as admin.
      Run “chkdsk c: /f”
      Run “sfc /scannow”

      Let us know the results.

      cheers, Paul

      Thanks guys. Fast startup is disabled. The SFC scan found issues and fixed them. I’ll monitor over the next few days and see if it happens again.

      Also worth running “DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth”

      I thought this was sorted but has popped up again over the last two days. I tried another SFC and this reported no problems. My next step was to boot into WinRE, mount the ESP as drive S and run:

      bcdboot C:\Windows /l en-GB /s S:\ /f UEFI

      I’m running UK English Windows 10 by the way, hence the language switch. I’ll see if this makes any difference.
