Are you facing the error “Startup Repair Cannot Repair This Computer Automatically” and don’t know how to fix it? Well, you don’t need to worry anymore. This blog is all about fixing this error by the best and the easiest way possible. Before going for the solutions, let’s first know why it happens:
If you are facing the error “Startup Repair Cannot Repair This Computer Automatically,” you can try the below-mentioned methods to fix it.
CHKDSK is a well-known utility that helps in various tasks, like verifying the integrity of a volume, fixing logical system errors, etc. One has to check if the system has bad sectors or if any drive isn’t working properly. We can do this using the Command Prompt. Let’s know how:
If it doesn’t work for you, then try an additional command before executing chkdsk.
1-Type the following command:
“diskpart>select disk X (X=0,1,2)>attrib disk>attrib disk clear>readonly”
“diakpart>list vol>sel vol X (X=0,1,2)>attrib vol>attrib vol clear readonly”
2-After running the above command, execute the CHKDSK command again.
After this, the chances of fixing the problem will increase.
Bootrec utility is a Windows tool commonly used to fix startup issues. Let’s know how to do that:
Once you pass these commands, each command will take its time to complete and will also provide you the confirmation of the completion.
You can go for this command if the previous one doesn’t turn out fruitful.
Note: The installation path you will see on your screen is the installation path of a Windows directory.
Note: Now, this may happen that the bootrec has located the missing Windows installation, and you are done with the process. But it may also happen that bootrec fails to find any Windows installation; in this case, you need to execute some different commands.
Bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup (Enter)
attrib bcd -s -h -r (Enter)
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old (Enter)
Bootrec /rebuildbcd (Enter)
Once the commands are executed properly and the process is done, restart the system.
You can try restoring the system to get the desired results. For that, you will need the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and need to enable the system to restore if not enabled.
Note: Make sure that you have selected the right operating system and disk.
If none of the above methods work for you, you need to try clean booting your system. To clean boot your system, you need to run your computer in safe mode first and then try boot cleaning. Make sure when your system starts in this mode, the very first step you need to take is backup all your important data. Hope this method helps you.
If nothing is working for you, better check your hard drive for any possible physical errors. For this, use the same hard drive on another system and see if it is working well. If it doesn’t work well for that too, that means you need to replace the hard drive.
