Win 10 stuck at automatic boot repair screen

Paul R


I was cleaning my PC when I disconnected the boot SSD. After I was done when I tried to turn the PC on I was stuck at the windows loading screen with the dots stuck. I restarted the PC and then it got stuck at the same screen with preaping automatic repair stuck . I tried to enter the win recovery environment but I couldn't get it no matter what button or key I press (which I found online such as F2,F8,F11,F12 shift +f11 etc). I then tried a bootable USB but it also gets stuck at the same screen after I select it as a primary boot drive. I don't have a recovery drive created but even if create a recovery usb from another PC, how am I to get into the recovery environment if all the PC does is get stuck on the boot loader screen.


Please help.


Thank you.

OP, boot without your drive(s) attached and see it will force it to boot to BIOS. 


Ill help best I can, but will only be available for about 30 min.


*Edit, sorry I am traveling I should have pointed that out. I was getting ready to leave on a 9hr drive [thus the limited time]. Still not yet home but I had a few to get on and add this from my hotel. 👍
