Windows 10 restart issue Bootreg /fixmbr

I ran into some strange issue with Windows 10 restart, where the laptop screen will freeze with Dell logo, and upon force restart the system will stay blank/black with no response.

I had to read up many forum postings and finally I was able to resolve the issue by following the below steps:

Note: follow on your own risk: this may not work for your system.
  • From bios enable legacy boot
  • Bootreg /fixmbr
  • Bootreg /fixboot
  • Bootreg /rebuildbcd
  • Diskpart
  • List disk
  • List volume
  • List partition
  • Select disk 0
  • Attributes disk
  • Attributes volume
  • Chkdak /r c:
  • Scf /scannow

Working hours in six months to a year

I usually try to look for how many hours I have worked on a given project and what hours that I  spend on learning or network management tasks.

Below I have added some hours calculation, after finding the breakdown by months from Berkeley website.
