    How do I reboot back to normal w/o usb?
    After a failed update, when I restart, I get this.
    There is no way to open system restore or image restore
    Auto start repair doesnt do crap
    Going back to the previous build isn't possible, because it tells me to reset my pc (that option is not there)

    See if you can get to command prompt as follows and then we can try some possible repairs.

    Force Safe Mode with Power On/Off

    1. Press the Power On/Off button to Start and Shut Down the computer as soon as you see the rotating loading circle
    2.Repeat this 2-3 times to stat the Windows Recovery Environment.
    3. Select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings > Restart from the Choose an Option screen.
    4. After your PC restarts, select one of the following Safe Mode options you are instructed to from the Start Up Settings menu:
    • Safe Mode (4)
    • Safe Mode with Networking (5)
    • Command Prompt (6)
    5. Wait for Safe Mode to load.
    6. Logon with an Administrator account if needed.

    Okay good. Follow below and let me know if any questions.

    Type or copy and paste the commands below and press Enter after each one.

    Change the all c:/ commands to the correct Windows drive letter below. If you need help, copy and paste the following command:

    bcdedit |find "osdevice" (this will display the correct Windows drive letter)

    1. d:\
    2. cd d:\windows\system32\config\regback
    3. Dir (This will list the contents of regback, note the date and be sure that the contents are not empty. If it is empty then this will not work STOP and DO NOT proceed


    1. copy *.* d:\windows\system32\config (press enter)
    2. Select ALL to the override prompt, it will say files copied, 5 hives will be copied
    3. Restart computer and test

    The boot config data store could not be opened.
    The system has attempted to load or restore a file into the registry, but the specified file is not in a registry file format.

    Did you access the troubleshooting menu using the Force Safe mode steps or just by restarting your computer? Do you have access to another computer to create a Windows 10 USB?
