Windows 10 ..Boot Problems..ie power outage?
Consider this. Use at your own risk.Read all the information first. You will need to make USB's or DVD's for each d/l.

First-Macrium Reflect Free
Make a Windows 10 (WinPE 10) rescue USB stick or DVD with Macrium Reflect Free - you'll need a small, like 4GB USB stick or a DVD for it. Macrium Reflect will prompt you to make the rescue media - if it doesn't, the option to do it is under the other tools menu.
Boot your computer from the USB or DVD that Macrium Reflect makes, and make an image of the hard drive to one of your external drives. That's the important goal to get accomplished.
Second-Windows 10 installation media
Windows 10

For this you will need an 8GB or larger USB stick - or a DVD. Select the second option to make media for installation on another PC. Select the exact same version of Windows 10 you have (or had) on your computer and make the USB or DVD. Then you can boot your computer from that USB or DVD and use it to reinstall Windows 10.

Once you have Windows 10 reinstalled, you will then install Macrium Reflect Free and use it to explore the image you saved of your hard drive and retrieve your data from the image.

Let us know if this is of any help in resolving your PC issue.

I can't remember the last time I used windows...

Linux has been working better and better for me.

and it's very easy to install, so if I did have problems with it I could easily just reinstall it.

I would like to get a larger hard drive but I don't want to hassle with trying to install windows on it, and I am not ready to say I will totally never run windows again.
maybe I could use this program to move windows to another drive?

my cousins computer had windows 10 on it and it stopped working during an update, now it will not boot,
so I will try this solution and see what happens.

I now have 3 computers that will not start windows for one reason or another,
I tried to use the microsoft reinstall disk, and it didn't work on any of them.

next I tired putting in a hard drive from a computer that was running windows just fine, and it just reboots the second it starts to load windows. I think the problem with that one is the windows on the hard drive is an OEM version made for a different computer.

after all this I realized that I can't remember the last time I installed windows on a computer, I usually just buy a computer with windows on it and then use it until I get another computer.

so I guess it does not help that I have no experience installing windows.

not sure if I am going to keep trying to repair the boot sector on the drive that was working, I am actually not even sure that's what the problem is, or spend my time trying to come up with a new copy of windows that works???
