A mains power failure during the PC shut down has caused major problems booting into Windows 10. The PC cycles through the Automatic Repair process and never gets to a sign-in desktop:
1. Automatic Repair
2. Advanced Options
3. Trouble Shoot
4. Advanced Options
5. Startup Settings
6. Restart
7. F5 Enable Safe Mode with Networking
8. (restarts automatically)
9. Your computer ran into a problem and needs to restart
10. Preparing Automatic Repair
11. Diagnosing Your PC
12. (then back to 1 in a continuous loop)
I have carried out sfc /scannow which failed at 76%
I then ran chkdisk /r but that did not find any problems.

I have tried to boot into Safe Mode but that fails too.

I am now a lost on how to get into Windows so that I can do a repair install, keeping apps and data. I have a USB bootable that I can use to boot to and install Windows but I will loose files and apps.

I have tried the HP support web site but not of the listed fixes got me into Windows.
