Enable System Protection on Local Disk (C:) with CMD

Hello.
I Have a Netbook Windosw Home Premium 64bit (no CD Drive). After an Windows Update I can't boot anymore. By searching google I found a lot of posts with the same problem, with or without solutions that worked for these people. Unfortunately non worked for me.

Can you please show me how to enable System Protection vy using CMD for C:\ so i can do a System Restore?

Thank you very much for your future efforts!

Best Regards


Vincent

What happens exactly when you perform "system restore"? Does it list the restore points? What error message if you select the most recent one?

After running startup repair (which can't fix the problem) you can click on "view diagnostics details". click on it. It shows what it did check and the status. Status 0x0 means success...I'm not interested in that. Which checks have another status? So what's the root cause

Also boot into Advanced Boot Options
Select "disable automatic restart on system failure" and boot. Now you see the BSOD crash info. What's the stopcode? Any drivers listed?

If you see the restore points "system protection" is enabled! If it was disabled... all restore points were deleted and not listed. Your problem is not unique. Maybe restore points are corrupt(?)

startup repair checked everything but didn't find root cause. All checks return 0x0 so that check didn't find errors.

From recovery options

Select "command prompt"
Dtermin what is your windows disk so do
Code:
dir  c:
dir  d:
dir e:
What's the drive letter in recovery environment? I assume C in this example
Code:
chkdsk/f  c:
Errors found? Repaired? If repaired... run same command again to be sure all is still fine.

No errors at all? The eventlog message "Failed to transfer logged messages to the event lo with status 50" is quite normal.

No do
Code:
sfc  /scannow  /offbootdir=c:\  /offwindir=c:\windows
