I used easeuse disk copy, after acronis, clonezilla, windows image restore failed me. Basically it copys all sectors, I set it to skip bad sectors(40). The source drive works, it just gave me a couple errors and stopped booting at one point.
The drive is an identical copy, minus 40 bad errors.
The drive is set to C and active partition, I rebuilt the boot order.
sfc /scannow and ran
chkdsk found 20kb of bad sectors if I remember right.
Now the issue I get is when I log into my profile which was saved right, I get a blank light blue wallpaper (non-license) explorer.exe is not running, and there are only 4 processes running in taskmanager, including taskmanager.
I would try a repair install but CRTL-E would not open, nothing will open once I force start explorer.exe, almost like all services are down.
What should I do? Fresh install is almost not a possibility I will try and fix this issue.
sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows
returns "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation"
--- EDIT ---
Turns out I overlooked my drive letter, it is infact the wrong drive letter for my system partition, all resources were probably looking for C:\ but instead my cloned drive had changed to D:\ . Don't make the same mistake if your cloning your drive, use Diskpart to check and be sure.
