I am having this error for quite a few months. When the problem occurs, my windows freezes at boot time with black screen. After few reset attempts, sometimes it shows the entitled error. after few attempts, the windows starts but everything become slow. If I again restart, it works well. But at a point windows never starts and I have to reinstall it. I have already reinstalled 3/4 times in the past 2/3 months. I checked for any HDD errors with EASEUS Partition Master Home Edition with surface test,
chkdisk at boot time etc for my C drive and F drive but no errors found. Startup repair also fails to solve the problem.
Windows Boot Manager
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer. 2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next." 3. Click "repair your computer." If you don't have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
