(I'm on Windows 10)
OK, this is a very interesting problem which I have tried everything to solve. My computer is stuck in a restart loop. When I turn it on, it goes to "Preparing Automatic Repair" screen with the windows logo, and then the screen goes black and the computer restarts and again shows the preparing automatic repair screen.
Now I believe that I need to reload the operating system on my hard drive, but here is the main issue: my computer will not fully boot from the DVD drive or USB.
When I put, for example, a Win 7 OS DVD into the drive, the computer shows the loading bar for the DVD files, show the starting windows screen, gets to the blue "Starting" screen, and then restarts. When I try to boot from an Ubuntu USB, I get to the Ubuntu scree, I select "Try Ubuntu without installing", and the computer restarts.
What I have tried so far:
- Disabling Fast Boot
- Disabling Secure Boot
- Running Memtest - It was the only thing I could boot to and it showed no errors
I have absolutely no idea what to do now. All of my searches on Google yield results of people with the "Advanced Options" button, which I am not able to get to. Any help would be extremely appreciated.
