Well, I have to accept that I made a mistake trying to change the start orb, and then all hell broke loose. Previously it has always worked for me when I ran the utility to change the Start orb.
I always test on a virtual machine before applying to a host system, but this time I forgot and Windows stopped booting.
Now whenever I turn on my PC it gets stuck at Windows is loading files... as you can see below:
However, the boot animation begins in recovery:
And then this window appears saying that its attempting to repair the problem, but the problem never resolves and the window never finishes.
How can I solve this? I have already tried to restore from a Restore Point, but that did not work. Any other suggestions?
