C0D428798188dYay it fucking boots .... oh wait nope you dumb ass, now it green screens with a driver issue!!!
Ta going to be a long ass night by the looks of things. Send coffee!
kamen3064188dSo in short your HDD is faulty and you blame software for that?
C0D428798188d@kamen nothing wrong with HDD.
Can still boot safe mode, can boot into cmd and runs chkdsk via recovery tools, sfc, ect, since it won’t run at boot without freezing, can’t roll back windows to previous version, can’t do a system restore even though there’s several restore points, I’m more inclined to think the OS has just had a mental crisis.
kamen3064187d@C0D4 Running chkdsk alone (you didn't even mention passing successfully) might indicate and probably fix errors in the file system; sfc might restore missing and/or replaced Windows files. What I think you need to do is, if you're able to boot after all, to run HDTune and look at the S.M.A.R.T. status and run an extended surface scan, if not, to find a bootable utility that can do the same.
If Windows is preventing you from doing a roll-back or a system restore as a protective measure because it detects a hardware error, then I can't even begin to imagine what hell you might be getting into with Linux.
C0D428798187d@kamen hdd seems to be in decent working condition ( smart tests pass and nothing appears out of the ordinary)
I ended up just wiping it, I only have so much patience when it comes to debugging an OS issue, since nothing seemed to want to work getting it to boot or even just restoring its self.
Formatted same HDD reinstalled W10 and all seems to be working fine again - well except my internet connection while I wait for the updates to download 😅
