How to Use Startup Repair in Windows 10

Startup Repair is a Windows recovery tool that can fix certain system problems that might prevent Windows from starting. If Windows 10 fails to start correctly two or three times, then the automated Startup Repair system will be invoked.

Startup Repair can only fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files. It can't fix hardware failures, such as a failing hard disk or incompatible memory, nor does it protect against virus attacks.

You can run Startup Repair manually from Windows 10 installation media by opening the Windows Recovery Environment menu (Click Repair your Computer at the Setup screen if starting from installation media) and then clicking Troubleshoot and Advanced Options.
