[Help] Desktop not booting up stuck at Preparing Automatic Repair

Here is my desktop specs:

Intel i5-7500 @ 3.40GHz
RAM DDR4 2X8 GB G.Skill Tridentz RGB PC2400
Mobo : Gigabyte H270-Gaming 3
Samsung SSD 850EVO 500GB
PSU ATC Cooler Master MW Lite 700W
Windows 10

Morning still able to boot up without issue, evening came back press start button and stuck in "Preparing Automatic Repair" then was given option to Troubleshoot

The Samsung SSD is detectable in BIOS.
CrystalDiskInfo software shows GOOD
Samsung Magician software shows GOOD too




Troubleshoot Advance Options


When I try Startup Repair option or use Windows 10 installation thumb drive to boot to repair, I get this "need to login as administrator to continue" my account is already an administrator account and I don't see my account listed.



I have another Intel SSD with Windows in the system able to boot up without issue and able to see this Samsung SSD in Windows Explore but "is not accessable'



Any advice what should I do next?

i suggest you back up the data first..take over the ownership of the SSD that was denied.

Reinstall the win10 to the SSD.
update your MB firmware.

Thanks for your input

Windows updates run automatically. I suspect it could be some Windows updates but not like those major update where i can see update percentage progression when boot up the desktop. Maybe that's why I'm not awared.

Will windows update causing this issue?

did u updated your windows recently?

Cos im just speculating that your PC might hit the spectre or meltdown patch that affected your pc. But most user happen to have this issues only after they just updated thr latest patch from MS

My Asus laptop has the same problem as u. Wat I did is under the adanced option, I choose the system restore from a earlier date. Since then, it has managed to boot up successfully.

Try attaching your ssd to another system and do a Checkdisk. If can work, you'll be able to run the os. Otherwise just copy out the important data and reinstall your os.
