Dear diary,
Today is day 3 of Windows 11 for me, and after about an hour of gaming, everything got laggy. I thought it was an AV scanner taking its sweet time kind of lag, but then.... I couldn't switch back to the desktop, I couldn't launch the task manager, it was just a solid frozen brick, and then when I unpaused this game to go back into it.... it was frozen too.

So here I am , with a frozen machine, so I give up and attempt a hard reboot........ yep, your fucked too. Windows auto repair kicks in, and it freezes too.

So now I'm here, with a brick of a fucking machine, wondering wtf could have gone so wrong.

Finally, I've made it to the failed boot screen,

> bootrec /fixboot
permission denied.

๐Ÿค” dafuq you smoking?


> sfc /scannow
Permission denied

Ok.... I don't think I want to know how this works.

> chkdsk /f /r /x C:
Yay something fucking runs
no issues ๐Ÿคจ

Fuck it, reboot.

Oh, now you want to fucking boot you piece of shit.
Now to understand how the fuck you can get a permission denied when your running CMD before boot ๐Ÿ˜

    Your PCs seems to be a severe case of Windows update...

    @electrineer I like to live dangerously, although this wasn't what I had in mind ๐Ÿ™ƒ

    A blue screen would have been somewhat better but just a complete lockup, I don't think I've seen that since the ME days ๐Ÿฅฒ

    Confucius says, never touch Windows before the first service pack, and ideally not even then.

    Bootrec and sfc require you to launch CMD/Powershell with elevated privileges, aka "Run As Administrator" and when done from Recovery environment you have to specify or change to the actual disk/partition or it may attempt to run those against a Read-Only recovery partition/disk.

    Roll back to Windows 10. Take my advice. Windows 11 is unfinished, unpolished and bug ridden.

    @Fast-Nop Confucius (just like many of the Greek philosophers) was all about deriving truth from basic elementary principles, using metaphors and tautologies to train the mind, about diligent work and generosity within communities -- and against blind trust in authority to acquire knowledge, wealth, convenience or comfort.

    So I'm pretty sure Confucius would compile his own kernel.

    @C0D4 You're probably wrong and you know it.

    Yeah I’m keeping my Ryzen 3900x, 32gb ram, rtx 3090 machine away from windows 11 lol.

    @theKarlisK maybe you missed the bit where I was running CMD pre-boot, there is only an admin cmd at that point.

    And yes, I did change from the x drive (memory mount) to c: before running those commands, but getting permission denied as admin and on a physical drive, that's new.

    This isn't my first borked boot in life ๐Ÿ˜ but I exported a little more stability then this from something being thrown down everyone's throat by Microsoft.


    For those playing at home, turns out a kernel panic occurred attempting to run an update in the background.... this isn't a great start.

    @rEaL-jAsE roll back you say....... ๐Ÿ‘€
    Where's the ranting fun in that?

    I misread that as 3.11

    General availability.

    The nice term invented to specifically not guarantee any form of stability.

    It's available for download, we do not claim any stability.

    :) It's fabulous how this simple two word construct has so much meaning and an "obvious hidden message" behind it.

    I’ve had it on my laptop for a few weeks now and to be honest I’m really liking it.
    I don’t play games on it so I can’t comment on that, but for everything else it seems miles faster than windows 10

    @TrevorTheRat Windows 11 isn't faster than WIndows 10. It's just that Windows is always faster than even the very same Windows after a fresh install because Windows is a misdesigned piece of shit that bogs itself down over time.

    @C0D4 confession time - I'm no longer sure on how to estimate abilities/capabilities of people, so I kinda expect everyone to just not know the most common things. :/

    @theKarlisK that's fair, the avg user is incompetent at best these days.

    @Fast-Nop it "seems" faster, even from a upgrade path and not a full reinstall, but that's probably some voodoo magic or pre-indexing to make it seem that way.

    @C0D4 Benchmarks don't confirm that, except for a dirty little trick upon booting where the desktop appears earlier, but then takes longer to be usable so that it's a wash.

    aren't permissions part of NTFS?
    which would mean you're trying to invoke permission-locked files from some anonymous boot user or something?

    in any case, fuck win11.
    10 finally got good, and now i should replace it by another hurried untested mess? nothanks.
