It just finished the big scan...the last message was “Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with the status 50”

Then I executed Sfc /Scannow /OFFBOOTDIR=C:\ /OFFWINDDIR=C:\Windows

My result was “Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation”


Should I continue with the next step anyway?

Don't worry about the “Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with the status 50” error message.

Please restart your computer and try the Sfc command again.

😫 what could that mean? Did a virus cause this?
I will try the other steps that you suggested.  I know there is only so much that you can do, but I greatly appreciate all of the help that you have given me...truly.

I don't think its virus that has cause the boot problem you said you try to reset your computer sometimes resetting the computer can go wrong for many reasons its hard to troubleshoot this kind of problem.

EDIT...Hi Freebooter,
I am in a window called EDiT BOOT OPTIONS which I have never seen before. I feel like this could be good for some reason if I know the right data to put in. It looks like this:
Edit Boot Options for:  Windows 10


Partition: {numbers,letters,etc}
Hard Disk: {numbers, letters, etc}


[ /NOEXECUTE=OPTIN /SAFEBOOT:MINIMAL


Seems to be waiting for me to hit ENTER



hope that you don’t mind one last question...The BOOTREC FixMbr/FixBoot/RebuildBcd scans DID go through:
“Successfully, scanned Windows installations.
Total identified Windows installations:0
The operation completed successfully.

X: \Windows\systems32>

Any last advice?

You don't need to mess around with Edit Boot Options menu you can boot into Safe Mode from  Windows Recovery Environment.










You’ll see a version of the familiar Advanced Boot Options menu. Press the number corresponding to the startup option you want to use (i.e., press the 4 key for regular Safe Mode).





Have you restored registry files from backup?


Since the BCD store exists and lists a  Windows installation, you'll first have to "remove" it manually and then  try to rebuild it again. At the prompt, execute the bcdedit command as shown and then press Enter:

bcdedit /export c:\bcdbackup

The bcdedit command is used here to export the BCD store as a file: bcdbackup. There's no need to specify a file extension.

The command should return the following on screen:
The operation completed successfully.

Meaning the BCD export worked as expected.

At this point, you need to adjust several file attributes for the BCD store so you can manipulate it. At the prompt, execute the attrib command exactly like this:

attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s

What you just did with the attrib command was remove the hidden, read-only, and system attributes from the file bcd. Those attributes restricted the actions you could take on  the file. Now that they're gone, you can manipulate the file more freely  - specifically, rename it.

To rename the BCD store, execute the ren command as shown:

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

Now that the BCD store is renamed, you should now be able to successfully rebuild it.

Try rebuilding the BCD again by executing the following, followed by Enter:

bootrec /rebuildbcd

Restart your computer after rebuilding the BCD store.





If above command does not work please execute below command and reboot your computer to see issue resolves.


Code:

DISM    /Image:C:\     /Cleanup-Image   /RevertPendingActions


Replace C:\ drive letter with Windows 10 installed partition drive letter.

Hi Freebooter,

The 1st command worked but the attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s command did not. “ Path not found -  c:\boot “

My bad i forget that the C: drive letter is assign to Windows 10 installed partition.  

You will have to use Diskpart command to find out the System Reserved partition drive letter and replace all C: drive letter with System Reserved partition drive letter.


From Command Prompt  execute below commands:

Code:


Diskpart

List Volume


The output of the above commands may display the name of the System Reserve partition as only System.

I am sorry for so many questions, but I just don’t want to do the wrong thing...this is what came up after the last prompts:

Volume 0.  C. Windows.        NTFS. Partition. 27GB. Healthy  not hidden 
Volume 1.                            FAT32 Partition. 260MB. Healthy. Hidden
Volume 2.  D. Windows RE.   NTFS. Partition.  979MB. Healthy. Hidden

DISKPART>
