“I am unable to start my Windows system. It gives me an error message that states, “Windows recovery error: Windows failed to start”. There available 2 options to fix the error - 1) launch startup repair 2) Start Windows normally. Startup repair takes me to a blank blue screen (having nothing except cursor). If I try to launch computer in normal mode, a green bar emerges and it continues to roll. I am not getting how to muddle through this situation. I need to bring my system back to working state. I have very important works saved on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated”.
