Usually it didn't stayed at this stage and led me to the login page.

If I press any touch it just shutdown. When I start again on the Windows side it leads me to the "Preparing automatic repair" page :

Preparing automatic repair

But after the diagnosis it reaches a page telling me Automatic Repair can't do anything.

    Honestly, this looks like more of a hardware issue, then a software issue (corrupt Windows installation) due to the graphical glitch that happens. – Ramhound Sep 19 '17 at 10:49

    looks like some problem with windows installation, nothing to do with dual boot or grub or something else. did you tried to login with safe mode? could be faulty hardware driver installation – Joey Sep 19 '17 at 11:40
  • @Joey Yes, I just tried and it gives me the first picture with the graphical glitches – Revolucion for Monica Sep 20 '17 at 21:18

    You can always save your files. Your problem appears to only be with the boot sequence. The best way is to clone the entire drive. Boot to a Linux LiveCD and use the dd command. Set up your computer so you have a second drive available that is at least as large as your original, then use fdisk -l to verify which drive is which. Presuming your original drive is /dev/sda and the second drive is /dev/sdb and the CD is /dev/sdc, the proper command would be dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb - It will make an exact copy, overwriting everything on the second drive, of course. – SDsolar Oct 4 '17 at 5:38
