A system wears and tears with time, not only the hardware but the software too. Windows 10 has an in-built mechanism to repair the system at Startup should it face any such issues. However, at times the automatic repair mechanism of the system could fail and users might get the following error:

Automaticstartup Repair Couldn’t Repair Your Pc

Since users might not be able to boot into the system in normal mode, we might have to perform the troubleshooting using recovery mode. Try the following solutions:

1] Repair BCD and MBR

2] Run CHKDSK

3] DISM command and SFC scan in recovery mode

4] Disable Early launch anti-malware protection

5] Disable automatic Startup Repair

6] Registry level fix

Solution 1] Repair BCD and MBR

To repair Boot Configuration Data and Master Boot Record, we would have to use Command Prompt in Recovery mode.

1] The second you boot your system, start pressing F11 (the key may vary depending on the brand of the system) to boot the system in Recovery mode.

2] Select Troubleshoot >> Advanced options >> Command Prompt.

Command Prompt In Recovery Mode

3] Type the following command and press Enter after each command to execute it:

bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd

bootrec.exe /fixmbr

bootrec.exe /fixboot

Rebuild

4] There command would help resolve issues with the boot sectors.

5] Restart the system and check if it helps.

Solution 2] Run CHKDSK

The CHKDSK command helps in checking bad sectors in the hard drive and repairs them if possible.

1] Open Command Prompt in Recovery mode as suggested in Solution 1.

2] Type the following command and press Enter to execute it:

CHKDSK /f /r

3] Restart your system and check if it works this time.

Solution 3] DISM command and SFC scan in recovery mode

1] Open Command Prompt in recovery mode once again as explained in Solution 1.

2] Type the following command and press Enter to execute it:

DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

Dism Scan

3] Thereafter, type the following command and press Enter to run the SFC scan:

sfc /scannow

4] Restart the system.

Solution 4] Disable Early launch anti-malware protection

One of the causes of the issue is that the anti-virus software might be interfering with the automatic repair process. However, we cannot log in to the system to disable or uninstall the anti-virus software, thus we would have to do it through an option in the recovery mode.

1] Reboot your system in recovery mode and explained in as Solution 1.

2] Go to Troubleshoot >> Advanced options >> Startup Settings.

Advanced Options

3] Click on Restart on the Startup Settings page. It would display a list of options and we need to choose the option by entering the appropriate number.

Note: This procedure might not be able to disable all third-party anti-virus software.

Solution 5] Disable automatic Startup Repair

For the time being, if automatic repair is not working, we could disable it to log in to the system.

1] Open Command Prompt in the recovery mode as explained in Solution 1.

2] Type the following command and press Enter to execute it:

bcdedit /set recoveryenabled NO

Recoveryenabled

3] Restart your system and check if disabling automatic startup repair allows you to boot into the system. Thereafter, you could perform the earlier explained troubleshooting in normal mode.

Solution 6] Registry level fix

If everything else fails, we could attempt a Registry level fix to resolve the issue.

1] Open Command Prompt in recovery mode as explained in Solution 1 for the last time.

2] Type the following command and press Enter to execute it:

copy c:\windows\system32\config\RegBack\* c:\windows\system32\config
