    Boot irritation!

    Hi guys. First off, can I just make it clear that I CAN boot into Win7, and once in everything works fine.
    The irritation is that after selecting Win7 from the boot menu ( I dual boot with Win10 which is on a seperate ssd) I'm presented with a black screen with "Loading windows files" at the top and then a loads of files scroll past for about 5 secs.
    The screen then changes to another black screen where I'm presented with my system details, cpu ram etc.
    Then I get a screen with:-

    Checking file system on \\?\volume{....................etc
    The type of the file system is NTFS
    The first NTFS boot sector is unreadable or corrupt.
    Reading second NTFS boot sector instead.
    The volume is clean.

    It then boots into win7 and everything is ok.
    It was fine until recently.
    Any ideas, remedies folks?
    Thanks. Dave

    I forgot to say that I tried a repair install from within Windows but just as it was finalising it told me that it had failed and would restore to the previous install!!

    Did you change the boot configuration when doing the repair? for example, setting it to boot in safe mode or one of the other options? If so, and you did not change that back to normal boot, that could be the problem. Restoring normal boot would then fix it.

    Thnks Michael, your suggestion worked, but, the safe mode button was unticked. But in the General tab, none of the three buttons were selected so I ticked the "Normal Start up" option and it's all sorted! Thanks again buddy! I had started it in safe mode not long ago so that must have been when this started.

    That's great to hear, David. I'm glad things are working for you now.
