3.2 Creating a small partition on a hard drive with Acronis True Image
This way of running the utility is more interesting. Unlike the previous method, this does not require a disk. The program is written on a hidden partition of the hard drive and is loaded when you press the F11 key at boot time. This method is perfect for owners of netbooks and portable laptops without a CD / DVD drive.
To create a copy of the program on the hard drive, select the Startup Recovery item in the Service menu:
Select from the list from which section to “bite off” free space for a small hidden section for the program:
#lenovo ideapad s145 preparing automatic #repair #leptop
We indicate the volume of the hidden section and put a tick next to Activate:
Important note: in addition to the program itself, backup copies can be stored on this section. It can be made more, as well as assign a password for access. This section is hidden from most programs. Read more about it in the instructions for Acronis True Image.
In our case, the password can be omitted:
This page lists all the proposed changes. To apply them, click on the Proceed button:
The system may ask you to reboot:
In this case, all changes will be made when the system boots:
That’s all. Now, during boot, the following window will appear prompting you to launch Acronis True Image:
If you press F11, Acronis True Image will load. To remove the hidden partition and return everything as it was, go to the Tools menu, select the Acronis Secure Zone item, click on the Delete button and indicate to which partition to attach the hidden partition.
The following points are described:
- Creating an image of a partition with a system;
- Preparing a disk with Acronis True Image 2009 or a hidden area for diskless system recovery;
- Restoring Windows along with drivers and programs from an image.
Creating a disk to run Acronis True Image 2009 or an area on the hard drive to run this program without a disk
Naturally, to restore a system from a previously created image, you need the Acronis True Image utility itself. How to start it if Windows does not boot at all?
There are two ways to run this utility:
- Boot from disk with Acronis True Image 2009;
- Booting from a special section of the hard drive when you click on a specific button.
3.1 Burning a disc with Acronis True Image 2009
This is an easier and more reliable method, but it has one very significant drawback: you need a disk and a floppy drive. According to the law of meanness, when Windows crashes on a laptop, the necessary disks with Acronis True Image 2009 temporarily disappear somewhere 🙂 Let’s consider how to burn such a disk. To do this, start Acronis True Image and select Create bootable disk from the Tools menu:
If other Acronis products are installed on your computer or laptop, you can also burn them to disk. Select Acronis True Image on the left and click Next
Choose your blank CD / DVD drive:
Important note: this utility also allows you to create an ISO image for later burning or organize a download over the network.
To start recording, click Start
To run Acronis True Image utility, you need to boot from it.
Creating an image of the system partition
At this stage, we, roughly speaking, will copy all the files from the partition of the hard drive with Windows into one archive, which is called the image. Acronis True Image 2009 will help us with this.
Install and run Acronis True Image 2009. In the Operations top menu, select the Back up item:
Since we need to create an image of the entire partition, select the My Computer item:
Now we indicate the section where you have Windows installed:
Important note: if you have several Windows installed on a laptop (for more details see: Installing Windows 7 or Windows Vista with a second system on a laptop with Windows XP and Installing Windows XP with a second system on a laptop with Windows 7 or Windows Vista), then choose either one C: \ section, or two. C: \ and D: \. Please note that if you are going to make a backup copy of all partitions on the laptop hard drive, then you will need either another hard disk or another computer that is connected via a network to store the image.
Next, we indicate the name of the image and where it is located:
Since we make a backup copy only once, we can safely turn off scheduling and click Next
Important note: Acronis True Image allows you to perform archiving on a specific schedule. It is possible to create a complete image of a partition, as well as incremental or differential images. Let’s consider them in more detail. Complete image. it is essentially an archive with all the files. Incremental image. this is an archive with changes since the last backup. Differential image. this is an archive with changes since the creation of the full image. To recover from a differential image, you need the differential image itself, as well as the full image. To recover from incremental images, you need the full image and all the incremental images. Differential and incremental images are often much smaller than full images. This is because they only contain changes to the complete image compared to the situation at the time of archiving. If you schedule a backup once a day, for example, then even in the event of a serious system failure, you can get a working system in 10-15 minutes as it was yesterday. Very handy thing.
Since this is the first time we are creating an image of the system, we select Full:
Here you can select which files you should not write to the image. You can read more about file exclusions here: Backing up important information and settings using the Comodo Backup utility. The principle is exactly the same. Click Next:
On this tab, you can adjust the compression level of the files in the image. On another tab, you can specify the settings for splitting the image file:
Many other settings are also available there. When done, click Next. On this page, you can add a comment to the image:
To start the process of creating an image, click on the Start button:
As a result, you will receive a message like this:
That’s all. The system image has been created. Now let’s move on to the next step.
Sometimes there are cases when you need to quickly restore Windows with programs and drivers. Most laptop manufacturers come with hidden partitions and / or recovery discs. With their help, you can restore the system to the state at the time of purchase. Read more about this in this article: Working with the automatic installation of Windows on a laptop.
Despite the many positive aspects, the pre-installed Windows recovery systems have a number of disadvantages:
- They are very finicky. They often require an original MBR, a specific partition structure, and the hidden partitions themselves;
- Not only Windows itself with drivers is restored, but also a large number of unnecessary programs, which then have to be removed;
- Hidden partitions take up quite a lot of space, if you delete them according to these instructions Working with the automatic installation of Windows on a laptop, you will need to restore them before restoring the system.
The user can face a number of inconveniences and problems. Among them, one can single out the need to restore hidden partitions along with the MBR, and the need to remove many unnecessary programs that came with the laptop, and install programs and updates, and the system configuration itself, and so on.
How can these problems be solved? How can you quickly and without unnecessary headaches get an already configured system, with installed updates and fresh drivers, with all the necessary programs and documents?
Acronis True Image makes it very convenient and easy to solve these problems. First, we use it to pack all the files from the Windows partition, and then, if necessary, restore the system from the archive (image). As a result, we get everything as it was at the time of packing. Fast and easy. Let’s consider working with this utility in more detail.
This utility is used to create backups and restore information. In terms of functionality, it is similar to the Comodo Backup utility, a description of how to work with which is on this site: Backing up important information and settings using the Comodo Backup utility.
Unlike Comodo Backup, Acronis True Image 2009 is a more flexible and functional solution. Acronis True Image is a paid product but costs very little (15-20).
To organize a Windows recovery system on a laptop with programs and drivers, you must:
Let’s consider each item separately.
Installing and configuring Windows
Windows installation has already been described in detail on this resource (Easy installation of Windows XP, Typical installation of Windows XP, Installing Windows Vista, Installing Windows 7, Installing Windows 7 and Windows Vista from a USB stick and Installing Windows XP from a USB flash drive or memory card) so I will not dwell on it. After installing Windows with drivers, we install and configure the necessary programs. In other words, we bring the system into the form that it should have after restoration.
Quick Windows recovery method on a laptop with fresh drivers, updates, customized programs and documents using Acronis True Image 2009.
Recovery image for Lenovo laptop
To reset Lenovo laptops to factory settings, usually just press the hidden Novo button, usually recessed in the case on the left or right side of the laptop, and select “System Recovery” from the menu, or go to the special boot options for Windows 10 and find the item to restore in special boot options. However, this only works if there is a hidden system recovery image on the laptop.
If there is no image, you can download it from the official Lenovo website and use the proprietary utility to create a bootable USB flash drive to restore Windows with all the drivers. This tutorial explains how to do it. Also helpful: How to reset a laptop to factory settings.
Note: To reset your laptop using special boot options, you can, on the Windows 10 lock screen, press the power button shown at the bottom right, then hold Shift and press “Restart”. In the menu that opens, in the “Troubleshooting” section, there is an item for resetting the system. Also, some Lenovo models by pressing the F8, F9, F4 key (sometimes in combination with Alt or Fn, in different ways) during power-up show an error screen, from which you can go to additional parameters and find the item to reset there.
How to download recovery image for Lenovo
Lenovo’s official website offers downloads of recovery images containing OS and drivers specific to your laptop. Unfortunately, unlike Dell, Lenovo does not provide such images for every model of its laptop, nevertheless, it is worth trying to download it: the website claims that the images are available for ThinkPads, “selected IdeaPad models”, as well as for PCs and all-in-ones. Lenovo.
First of all, you need the serial number, which can be found on the bottom of your Lenovo laptop, where it is indicated by the letters “S / N”. Additionally, you need a Lenovo ID account, which you can create at https://account.lenovo.com/en/ru/. After the serial number is found and the account is set up, follow these steps:
- Go to https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/en/ru/lenovorecovery/ and enter the serial number of your laptop.
- If you see the message “This is not a valid Windows machine for recovery”, then you are not prompted to download an image for your laptop.
- If there is an image, you will see the model of your laptop and the option to select the country and language of the downloaded image. Check the box “I accept the rules” and click “Next”.
- At the next stage, you will need to provide your first name, last name, country and email address.
- You will see a message that the Lenovo Recovery download is available and a link, go to it.
- On the next page, you will be prompted to download one of the two versions of Lenovo USB Recovery Creator, download the correct one depending on your Windows version.
- Connect a USB flash drive (preferably 16 GB or more, data from it will be deleted) to a computer or laptop, run the Lenovo USB Recovery Creator utility, enter your Lenovo ID details, and on the next screen. the desired system recovery image.
- All other steps are quite clear: you will need to specify the location of the files, and after downloading them. select the USB flash drive to which the Lenovo recovery image will be written.
At the end of the process, you will receive a ready-made bootable USB flash drive specifically for your laptop, with which you can easily restore the factory system with all drivers and software from Lenovo.
If there is no image for your laptop, and the system cannot be restored by any means, describe the situation in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев: the exact model of the laptop, whether the system boots, to what stage and what version of the system. I will try to suggest a solution.

Hello. He writes all the time, the service is busy.
Hello. Do they write so on their website? I have now double-checked: it works (though for some reason the field for entering the serial number did not appear immediately, but only after refreshing the page).
Unfortunately, it is not always useful: for IdeaPads, for example, I have never seen that they have an image (although they write that for some there is).
Question: if the system was activated before the problem, activation will remain after recovery?
Yes, it will. over, even if you just clean up with the office. Microsoft website, install Windows 10 (if it is about 10-ke) in the same edition (Home, Pro), then the activation will be saved without entering the key (the system is activated after connecting to the Internet).
So at the beginning I write about it: that first it is worth registering it, and therefore everything else should be done.
I created a recovery disk through: “All Control Panel Items”. “Recovery”, but I do not know how to proceed with it in the future. You need to boot from BIOS, the Download Menu or in other ways. If possible, please tell me.
Hello. Boot from this drive in BIOS, or use Boot Mneu.
Hello, can you please tell me on the laptop it was 8ka, then installed 8.1, after the recovery, a rollback occurred to 8. How to restore 8.1?
You can download the image from the official website: microsoft.com/ru-ru/software-download/windows8ISO then mount it on the system (using OS tools, not Daemon Tools, etc.), run setup.exe to upgrade to 8.1
Hello. I did not recover overnight. How many hours pass? Writes: The system is being installed it will take several hours, wait patiently It does not freeze, you can cancel and start over
Hello. Strange of course, but I would wait. If there is no suspicion of a faulty hard drive (what could be the cause of this behavior).
Hello! I am looking for OneKey Rescue Windows 10 image for Lenovo Z710. The problem is as follows. The laptop was running Windows 8.1. Updated the laptop to the official Windows 10 SL. Everything is licensed. Rebooted several times. all the rules. On the next day, the laptop does not load at all, it hangs immediately after the Lenovo splash screen appears and the Windows start-up circle appears. And that’s it, that’s all. over, it does not even start from the Windows 10 boot disk. It seems that Lenovo has some kind of special bootloader or a procedure for starting the Windows bootloader. In search of a solution, I formatted the disk, re-partitioned it under GPT, formatted it under NTFS, but everything also does not boot even from the boot disk. it does not even reach the first dialog of the installer. I checked the RAM. all the rules. I put another hard drive, also the effect is zero. Is this the problem? Can someone tell me where to dig further?
In general, there are no peculiarities about booting from a boot disk / flash drive to Lenovo, except that somewhere you need to disable Secure Boot or switch UEFI / Legacy boot (it depends on the specific distribution kit and how it was recorded). But on the problem itself. I don’t know, it looks strange from the description. OneKey images can be searched on one of the most popular blocked trackers, there is a page with such images for different laptop models. Not too extensive, but sometimes the right thing is found.
Lenovo G50-45 Can’t restore laptop. I wanted to reset to factory settings, as a result, everything fell off. After turning on, OneKey Recovery is loaded immediately, but does not restore. there is no factory image, but does not perceive it from a flash drive. There is no image for this serial number on pcsupport.lenovo.com/en/en/lenovorecovery/
Then, perhaps, the best option is to manually install the system from the office. Microsoft website, and then from the office. Lenovo site. drivers and utilities required.
Installing the system from the official distribution kit may not necessarily be optimal, but this decision must be correct. And when the warranty on the laptop is over, the factory-restored partitions are just an extra burden. From the factory partitions, before deletion, you can only have a set of drivers if they are there in a separate form.
Hello, Situation: Bought Ideapad 330 laptop with DOS. We tried to put Vin10Pro. At first boot of BSOD and attempt to restore Error of type Irql less or equal. And so in a circle. The flash drive now sees in the BIOS, but does not boot from it. immediately to the hard drive and Windows recovery. It does not allow the boot to switch to Legacy. the item in the BIOS is locked. How to restore this parasite to boot from a flash drive in order to install Windows?
And through the Boot Menu from a USB flash drive if you boot? Those. not in the BIOS, but in the Boot Menu forcibly select it?
Help, the hard drive died, I can not find the recovery image. The site says that there is no. Thinkpad e335, type number: 33556ZG
So they don’t have this model. I’m afraid I won’t help here either. But: was the 7 on it? Then the key should be on the sticker and you can use it for a clean installation, and then manually install the utility drivers.
Such a situation, on Lenovo U430p, demolished a win 8 license to a win7 license with formatting all partitions and partition formats (GPT-MBR), I decided to roll back after using win 7 I want win10. Which way to go? Trying to install win 8, and then somehow upgrade to win 10, or just look for a win 10 image right away? and will the key from win 8 to win 10 fit?
Hello. There is no need to look for a Windows 10 image in a special way. just take it from the official website and install it without intermediate steps. If you put it in UEFI mode, then most likely you will not have to enter the key, it will pick up itself (and if necessary, then yes, it will come up from 8, the OEM key wired into the UEFI).
TE It turns out that I boldly demolish the 7k, convert the ICBM into GPT and put Windu? The key must be picked up from the 8th.
Yes, that’s right. But: there is a chance that it will not catch up. Just in case, use some program that shows keys from UEFI, for example, ShowKeyPlus and rewrite the OEM-key.
this one hung at the end of the installation, no error, nothing, just the strip stopped before reaching the end a little more than a centimeter this laptop has already got me
Hello, I had 10 home on lenovo 50-45 and it was scary to slow down, so yesterday I decided to try Linux mint in flash drives. Liked. I look at the “Install” button. I can see what will happen when I offered to select partitions I chose, but changed my mind to install, I decided to split the hard into partitions myself and did not notice that I was not pressing for a rollback, now I lost access. I haven’t done anything yet, I’m looking for a way to resuscitate.
Hello, I made a USB key, started recovery from a flash drive, the process starts and after a minute the recovery failure message pops up. what can it beat?
Hello. I won’t be able to guess. The message only says that there is a failure. And what caused it is not clear. And then you had to resort to recovery? Are there any problems with the hard disk?
Hello. I managed to find the Lenovo recovery image of my sample, but when I launch Lenovo USB Recovery Creator, the process stops at selecting the USB where the source will be sent. The window where the removable disk should be located is empty. But the computer sees all the devices connected to it, including removable media. With what it can be connected?
Hello. This can be if your flash drive in the system (look in the explorer) is defined not as a removable drive, but as a regular hard drive. Then the solution is to take another flash drive.
Good day! I have a PC Lenovo IdeaCentre A510. I have been trying for the third day to download the Recovery image via the Lenovo USB recovery creator utility and every time (the third or fourth already) the download is slowed down by 96% and from that moment the speed starts to drop, and the time remaining until the end of the download increases accordingly, the download stops altogether (The native screw “crashed.” Is it possible to install Win10 from the Microsoft site and how to activate it later?
Hello. Yes, you can use the original Microsoft image (just remember to install the Lenovo drivers later). If you install the same version (Home, Pro) that was preinstalled by the manufacturer, activation will take place automatically after connecting to the Internet. I strongly recommend installing in UEFI mode (then during installation you will not even need to select a version or click “I do not have a product key”, the key will be taken “wired” in the system).
Hello, tell me. what utility to transfer the disk from the Lenova B80 from the GPT to the ICBM. nothing works (
Hello. To begin with: I would not translate at all, but put it in GPT (making a USB flash drive under UEFI and booting in this mode), it will be better. Well, if you still need it: then the command line method as described here: https://remontka.pro/stil-razdelov-gpt/ will work fine (with data loss)
Lenovo G585, came from 7, updated to 10. The image does not offer on the site, where can I get a bootable USB flash drive and restore 7? On the way 7-10 I changed the disk to an SSD, there is a hidden partition, but just in case I want to be on the safe side.
Unfortunately, I will not offer official methods. Unofficial. somewhere on a third-party resource, find an ISO with the 7th edition you need, download it to a USB flash drive, and put the official drivers for laptop equipment there. I also met material somewhere on the topic of how to make a bootable USB flash drive from a hidden recovery image. look (I did not do it myself, but I think it should not be difficult).
Good day! Lenovo IdeaPad laptop stopped turning on after BIOS update. Loading from the novo button does not work. When pressed, the boot menu does not appear on the screen. Uploaded at the office. site USB flash drive to restore factory settings. But I will not go either, how to use it. The system does not boot. The menu does not turn on. I tried different key press options. The screen still shows no signs of life. Please advise how you can somehow save it yourself or just contact the service?
Hello. And there are considerations after what happened? Is there any reaction to pressing the power button? And if you first hold it down for 15 seconds. release it. press it again? And all this is desirable with the charging connected.
My ideapad 710 recovery is complete. When you log on to Windows, an administrator account. an error account is not connected, contact and does not offer Create. What can be done?
Did you work under an account named “Administrator”? If so, the bottom line is that this is not a work account and is hidden and disabled by default. Perhaps she has become hidden again. A possible solution is to enter Safe Mode. To do this, on the lock screen (if you have Windows 10), click on the “power” button drawn at the bottom right, then, holding Shift, restart. The recovery environment will start and there, in the additional boot parameters, you can go into safe mode (including under the Administrator account) and create a regular, not a system administrator account.
Hello! I have some other problem, there is a section of about 15 gigabytes but it is empty, I enter my serial number (hidden) on pcsupport.lenovo.com/ru/ru/lenovorecovery/ to download ONE KEY RECOVERY but writes “Could not find recovery tools for this equipment (Code: 404C) Please enter the serial number for another machine or Contact us for further assistance. “, Trying to contact support Contact us. Unresolved service issues, but a country like Turkmenistan is not listed, option Contact us. Electronic support mail, my country is also not on the list. Further, I try to find a solution Contact us. Consult on our forum, too, there I can not ask a question and find a solution. What to do? please tell me.
Hello. Apparently you won’t be able to download. I think the best thing is to download the system image from the official Microsoft website and manually install it on the laptop from scratch, and then the drivers for your model from the official website.
Good day. Help resolve the error and assign the serial number and model to Lenovo H535 10117. There is no BIOS for this model on the Lenovo website. You can somehow make an image of your old BIOS, where the serial number and model are registered. And transfer the old image to the new motherboard? I just changed the metric and because of this there is an error that the serial number and model are missing
Hello. I have a question. If you download the system recovery image to the USB flash drive that is in the phone (128GB), you can run it on the laptop via the USB connector?
Hello. There are some nuances: 1. If you are going to write an image directly in the phone as a file to this memory card. no, it will not work. 2. If on another computer, according to all the rules, you prepare a recovery image on this memory card and then use. with a high probability. yes, everything will work out.
Hello, there is such a problem: the system seems to be working correctly, all the drivers were installed normally, except for one thing: for some reason the system does not see the video card on the laptop. I tried to install different versions of Windows, in any case does not see it. Plus, the utility from NVidia itself does not see it either (but in BIOS it says that there is a video card (who knows, maybe the text is not true, because the BIOS is very strange there). Tell me what to do in this case? Laptop model: Lenovo IdeaPad Gaming 3 (15IMH05) Video card: NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 1060
And in the device manager in the video adapters section that we have displayed?
Preparing Windows 10 automatic recovery: what to do first?
To begin with, let’s look at a standard course of action. In the case when after the notification that the automatic recovery of Windows 10 is being prepared, nothing happens after the restart, you can try to use safe mode to start.
If the user has activated the assignment to call the start menu of the F8 key, in the standard version, you should select the safe mode with loading network drivers. If the use of this key is not provided, which is most often encountered, it is quite possible that at the boot stage a window will appear with a choice of either system boot or diagnostic tools (if there are Anniversary and Creators upgrades.
If the system somehow boots, you can try to rollback manually:
- To do this, do not use the standard “Recovery Center”, it is better to use the command console, in which the line rstrui.exe is entered.
- In the rollback window, you must select the point that preceded the occurrence of such a situation. Please note that it will be impossible to stop this process, as well as undo changes made during the rollback process.
Sometimes, if the network drivers are loaded and you have an active Internet connection, you can try to perform an online repair using the DISM toolkit. It may very well be that such a solution will be much more effective.
Expanding the reserved space
Another moment when the Windows 10 “Preparing automatic recovery” screen is displayed, but then the system does not show any signs of life, is associated with the fact that you need to increase the disk space allocated for storing backups. Again, this only applies to situations where Windows can be booted in Safe Mode.
In this case, the best option would be to use a small and fairly simple Partition Wizard from MiniTool or a similar development with a built-in bootloader, which is much preferable for cases when the system does not start at all. In it, you just need to increase the required space to at least 250 MB (it is better to set a slightly higher value), and then try to boot the system in normal mode.
“Preparing automatic recovery” Windows 10: what to do?
System restore in automatic mode usually starts after an incorrect shutdown or exposure to viruses that cause critical errors. However, quite often you can observe a situation when the message “Preparing automatic recovery” of Windows 10 appears on the screen, and after a reboot, instead of starting the system, only a black screen is visible, or the recovery simply loops (the same window is displayed every time you restart).
The sad thing is that no matter how you try, it can be impossible to complete this process. However, if the system itself, not to mention the backups, was not damaged to the extreme extent, when apart from reinstalling nothing helps, several methods of eliminating such a situation can still be offered.
Preparing Windows 10 automatic recovery: black screen and the reasons for the looping process.
Be that as it may, despite all the developers’ statements that the new system is almost the most stable, alas, and it contains many bugs that are constantly being corrected. And system crashes are not always fixed with a regular rollback.
If we talk about the possible reasons for this behavior of Windows 10, it is quite difficult to say for sure what exactly is associated with such a failure. Nevertheless, with a certain degree of probability, the following can be distinguished:
- damaged backups;
- lack of system files;
- lack of space to save checkpoints with images;
- incorrect settings of the primary system BIOS / UEFI;
- problems with hard drive and RAM.
Hard drives and RAM
If the problem is in the computer hardware, it may well be that first it is worth checking the disk by booting from removable media using the command line, in which the chkdsk / x / f / r command is written, and at the same time using the check of the main system components (sfc / scannow).
BIOS / UEFI settings
Finally, the looping of the “Prepare automatic recovery” process in Windows 10 can be associated with the settings of the primary system, which involve deactivating the protection system against hacker attacks at the hardware level (prohibiting the execution of executable codes). The loop appears for this reason too.
Thus, in order to rectify the situation, it is necessary:
- When turning on the computer or laptop, enter the above parameters.
- Find a line like No-Execute Memory Protect or XD-bit and set it to Enabled.
- After that, you need to save the changes (F10) and restart the computer device.
Preparing Automatic Repair Error in Windows 10 FIXED [Tutorial]
Ongoing automatic recovery preparation and computer diagnostics in Windows 10. how to fix
Some Windows 10 users are faced with the fact that after updates, and sometimes without clearly identifiable reasons, when the computer or laptop is turned on, the message “Preparing for automatic recovery” constantly appears, alternating with “Computer diagnostics”, eventually transferring to the “Automatic recovery” screen in Windows 10.
This guide details possible methods to fix Windows 10 Permanent Automatic Repair and get your computer back to normal boot.
How to disable automatic Windows 10 repair
It is possible to disable the launch of automatic Windows 10 repair and check how the system behaves in this case. in some cases this leads to a normal boot of the OS, sometimes. it allows you to determine what exactly the problem is. To disable automatic recovery:
- As in the previous method (steps 1-3) go to the system recovery tools.
- Open the “Command Prompt”.
- At the command prompt, type and press Enter.
- Close Command Prompt, select Turn Off Computer, and then turn it back on.
In the future, to return the automatic recovery, which can sometimes be useful, use the command line (as administrator, if it will be launched in a running Windows 10) and the command
Auto repair only after shutdown, after restart Windows 10 works
One of the most common options is preparing an automatic recovery, diagnosing a Windows 10 computer and the subsequent steps only after shutting down the next time the computer or laptop is turned on, and pressing the “Restart now” button or a simple restart solves the problem. It is also possible that the appearance of the problem depends on how long the computer has been turned off or turned off from the outlet.
In the cases described above, the following solutions to the problem can help:
- Disable Windows 10 fast startup (the fastest method and necessary if the problem occurs on the PC after unplugging it, and you are not ready to turn it off).
- Manually install the chipset and power management drivers, and for Intel. also Intel ME (Management Engine Interface) drivers from the official website of the laptop or motherboard manufacturer, even if they are not the newest on the official website.
- For PC with the “Quick Start” function enabled. do not disconnect the computer from the mains.
The bottom line in this case comes down to the fact that when Windows 10 is enabled by default, the “Quick Start” function and shutdown does not turn off “completely”, but goes into a kind of hibernation. If the chipset and power management drivers are not working properly (and it is not uncommon for drivers to automatically install Windows 10 to cause this malfunction, despite their compatibility), or if there is a complete loss of power (for example, you unplugged the PC from the outlet), restarting from this hibernation can lead to crashes and automatic recovery.
Fix problems causing manual automatic repair
After automatically diagnosing a Windows 10 computer, the user is taken to the Automatic Repair screen giving access to various recovery tools that can be used to fix the problem:
- On the Automatic Repair screen, click Advanced Options.
- In the opened menu of the recovery environment, go to “Troubleshooting”. “Advanced options”.

In a situation with endless preparation for automatic recovery, programs and data become inaccessible. All actions will be performed in the Windows recovery environment. You will need a bootable USB flash drive or disk that you can easily create on another computer. How to do this is described in detail in separate articles.
First, do a “hard reboot”. press the corresponding button on the system unit of the stationary computer. Unplug the laptop and remove the battery. Then hold down the power button for 15-20 seconds, insert the battery, connect the device to the mains and turn it on. If the system does not boot, go to the methods described below.
If Windows still hasn’t booted, check your hardware. Disconnect and reconnect the hard drive first. If there are several installed, disconnect all and connect only the HDD with Windows 10. Additionally, disconnect all external USB drives. If possible, connect the hard drive to another computer and check it for errors and bad sectors. How to do this is described in a separate article.
There were times when reinstalling the RAM helped. Remove all the brackets from the motherboard, then insert them one by one into the slots and after each try to boot the system.

If we assume that the problem is in the automatic recovery function itself, then it is possible to interrupt its cycle.
In the Windows recovery environment, launch the “Command Prompt” again and enter the code:
Press “Enter” and try to restart your computer.
To later enable automatic recovery, instead of the No value at the end, we write Yes.
Booting in “Safe Mode
Try booting Windows 10 in Safe Mode. In this case, a minimal set of files and components is used, which increases the chance of a successful launch.

In the console field, in turn, execute the following commands:
dism / Online / Cleanup-Image / RestoreHealth
We are waiting for the completion of the process and restart the computer.
In BR, you can not only recover damaged system files, but also save important data from local drives to external media. After all, it is possible that the system will eventually have to be reinstalled.
At the same time, it is highly likely that Windows will not boot in “Safe Mode” and then the integrity check of system files will have to be run using the “Command Prompt” in the recovery environment. Read more about this in the following instructions.
If your computer has restore points configured, you can try rolling the system back to a working state. User data will be preserved, but changes in system files and the operating system registry will be canceled, and applications installed since the point were created will be removed. In any case, check for the presence of such backups, since you may simply not remember that you once enabled this option.
Go to the “System Restore” section.
