So my Psu was making strange sounds the last couple days. Just yesterday I awake to and endless windows startup repair loop. So I went out and got a new psu thinking that would solve my problem... I thought wrong. Been trying several methods and so far nothing has resolved this... I can't do a system restore from a previous date, I can't reinstall windows with or without keeping my files, and I get an "access denied" when I booterec /fixboot... I revived my copy of windows 10 (64 but) from my school so I do not have the ornignal disk or anything really... Could it be a hard drive issue? Been running the same parts for well over a year without issues. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.

It is possible that in the process of installing your new PSU, you may have loosened a cable or one of your RAM chips. I would first check all your connections and R&R your RAM.

Loosing a PSU can often result in other problems, such a corrupting your operating system. If you follow this link you will be able to create a windows 10 install media that may also solve your problem. https://forums.tomshardware.com/faq/how-to-do-a-clean-installation-of-windows-10.3170366/

Thanks for the reply! At this point I am not. I can only get to the repair screen because I have a flash drive with windows (can't install because harddrive isn't formatted correctly) it's a mess.

I know this sounds stupid but it worked for me. Go to your bios and make sure the ssd or. The primary drive is being used to boot first. Windows like to change so my ssd is 2nd.

Well i fixed it. Lost a lot of stuff but it's honestly okay it almost needed to happen. I ended up reinstalling windows from a flash drive and while reformatting it basically wiped everything. But I'm staring at my desktop as we speak so I'm conetent. Thank you all again, happy holiday 👍🏼👍🏼

Good to hear you worked it out. Hopefully you'll do some backups now so you don't loose all your data again; something that has happened to me a few times until I got smart; it's not if you need a backup, it's when :)

Having this exact same issue. However windows reinstalls correctly through installation and when I get into windows and turn off my pc and back on, it goes into endless repair loop.
