Solved!

BCD.LOG fault

15r110na
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

A few days ago my laptop froze and I had to do a power shutdown, remove and refit the battery and reboot.

 

Since then I have had some problems.

 

1. I cannot create a restore point. I get a message saying "the writer experienced a non transient error"

 

2. I cannot repair using a restore point.

 

3. If I try system reset I get a popup message saying    "systemreset.exe-corrupt file" .  "The file or directory EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD.LOG  is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the Chkdsk utility"

 

I have run Chkdsk and sfc /scannow and no faults were found.

 

Obviously something is wrong with the boot partition but the laptop boots up ok.  Any ideas how I can fix this please?

 

Karen.

Hello @KarenUK,

 

Thank you for visiting the HP Support Forums! The forums are a great place where you can find solutions for your issues, with help from the community!

 

I came across your post about System Restore issue, and wanted to help!  I understand that you started having trouble after the notebook froze.

 

First, you can try restoring the BIOS, using the following document: 

HP Notebook PCs - Restoring the BIOS

 

After that, give the System Restore a try.  If you are still having trouble, you may consider performing the Microsoft Push-Button Reset, to reload the Operating System.

Thanks for your help. The issues seem to have fixed themselves. All I did was run some Disk checking utilities including HP system diagnostics from the F2 key. I didn't get any errors found messages but something auto-fixed it.
