Error while booting up Windows 10

Hello, I have a dell optiplex 745 that I upgraded from a E6300 to a Q6600 a GT 730.

There were no problems after the upgrade until yesterday, when I got to my vacation home. I got home and my brother said the computer got very slow within some days (between 3-4 days) and when I turned it on myself it took ages just to load the Windows picture and then it gave me a BSOD saying "unmountable boot volume" and it kept happening until it got to the auto repair menu. I instantly clicked the option to format windows to it's fabric settings and the menu was very slow and took ages just to start the process of formatting the pc. It got stuck at 1% for some time and then it moved and I left it doing it's job during night, when I woke up it said the process got an error while doing it and sent me to the repair menu again. I ckicked "Go to windows 10" and it froze, rebooted the pc and the bios loads but windows doesn't... maybe it's the HDD?

I was thinking on installing a new version of windows but I don't have the tools with me :(

Thank you all in advance

  1. Sounds like your hard drive is broken. If you can boot into a windows boot disk, try the advanced repair options, and open up a command prompt. Go into diskpart and clean the disk.
    Follow these steps and ignore the "go into windows" bit at the start.

    Then if you can't format the disk, or if it fails/cant find the disk, then you need a new disk.
  2. Ye that has to the problem, Ill try to do what you said but I don't think It'll work :/
  3. Doesnt work... I guess I have to wait until I get to my house and try to fix it there :(

    I can also guess I have to get a new drive

    Yeah :(

    I would recommend a SSD approach, they are much more reliable as they have no moving parts and arent susceptible to static shocks. An NVMe SSD has the best reliability but TLC will do just fine for the average joe.
