One of the recent issues (in 2018), was the refusal
to boot of older AMD processor based systems. This isn't
true bricking (ruining of file system), but it did prevent
people from using their computers. The user "Cameo" in the
group had an AMD system suffer that fate, and Cameo
figured out the necessary DISM command to reverse it
and got the system running again.
It's unclear exactly what kind of blooper hit Ultred's
machine, as the symptoms don't seem to match anything
I could find. A little offline DISM or SFC should have
repaired the OS base, assuming that the file system
really wasn't trashed.
My Windows 10 Insider about a week ago (I have two OSes
running Insider), both of them suffered Voumme Bitmap
trouble, as well as a series of Extended Attributes issues.
And Microsoft has been screwing around with Extended Attributes,
so it's not exactly a random occurrence. I was able to fix that,
and I was initially concerned I'd have to reinstall. But CHKDSK
The Win10 16299 is also making "bad" NTFS partitions now.
The $MFTMIRR is wrong. If you're making NTFS partitions while
running the latest version of Windows 10, I recommend going back
to Windows 7 and doing your partitioning there instead. I've had
to repair a number of $MFTMIRR entries on NTFS volumes.
It's funny that the level of "innocent" "tee hee hee" errors
is going up, at a time when we're so far along in Windows 10
development. I just can't figure out what these people
are smoking. It's worse than the webcam fiasco (where they
added a busted implementation of FrameServe to webcams,
and my webcam wouldn't work for three months). Even a chimpanzee
with one hand tied behind his back, could have backed out those
changes, apologized and fixed my webcam in a week or two, tops.
Instead, it was full speed ahead and "screw you" if you need
that webcam. "Software as a service". Um, OK. Gotcha.
