  1. I can't even get to that first screen I'm stuck at it constantly saying it will go for an automatic repair and 'sorry, something happened', shutdown loop. I tried reaching the configure screen but nothing works

  2. I went to the BIOS settings and clicked the Boot Menu and chose a second SATA instead of the first SATA which is the normal SSD that I used to boot on and it went directly to Automatic Repair. Clicked the Toubleshoot Icon then clicked on the System Restore Icon and choose one a of few restore points and it solved the problem. This tutorial helps me. Nice job 👍👍
