I was using my computer under medium load and suddently got a BSOD. Now i can't boot, i get same BSOD over and over again before i can get into windows and it's stuck in a loop so it doesn't enter into recovery mode by itself.
I got a win10 usb key so i used this to get into recovery mode and i have access to command prompt right now
]SFC /scannow fails with error "There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again."
DISM doesnt work
Can't get into safe mode
/bcdedit will not work and bcdedit /enum says "the boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found"
in command prompt, if i type "cd C:" it doesn't work and i can't see the root of my win10 ssd. however i can access other drivers
in bios, my 960 pro SSD is still detected in the boot devices
/fixmbr and /fixboot completed successfully but didnt fix the issue
Possible causes? :
I recently upgraded to a Samsung 960 pro NVME SSD few weeks ago. Maybe it's dead ?
I had an automatic nvidia driver upgrade today, i was asked to reboot and clicked "later". Then BSOD. Maybe corrupted driver because the update couldnt finish ? Sometimes driver upgrades are trigerred in the background when rebooting.
Usual noob errors excluded here. I'm an experienced IT, this was a 100% stable machine all hardware tested and operating 24/7 since 9 months. Drivers were up to date, ram is memtested, cpu is stresstested, ssd was tested and benchmarked w ssd magician and hdd sentinel, windows was up to date, no malwares, no virus, etc.
config: Windows 10 Pro i7-6950x gtx 1080 titan x pascal samsung 960 pro nvme msi x99a
i'd really appreciate some help. Thanks !
