1. Restore your OS

Try to perform a system restore as follows:

Click on the "System Restore" option and click "Next" to select the desired system restore point. Next, you need to continue the process by following the instructions on the screen.

This method will be effective if you previously created a restore point. If not, try the following method to fix the Windows Srttrail error.

2. Use cmd

Enter cmd in the search bar and select the Command Prompt option with the right mouse button. Next, you need to select "On behalf of the Administrator" with the left mouse button.

Now, type or paste the commands:

bootrec.exe, press Enter.

/rebuildbcd bootrec.exe, press Enter.

/fixmbr bootrec.exe, press Enter.

/fixboot, press Enter as well.

Then check each partition with chkdsk/re:. So check all drives by simply changing the c: letter to the desired drive letter.

Then reboot your computer to see if the Srttrail error is fixed.

3. Set up the sector

To use this method, open a command prompt (see method 2) and, at the command prompt, type bcdedit and press Enter.

You should see on the screen partition = C:. If not, you need to enter the following commands:

bcdedit /set {default} device partition = c :, press Enter

bcdedit /set {default} osdevice section = c :, press Enter

Restart your computer.

4. Use BIOS

When restarting your computer, open the BIOS and find the boot section in your specific BIOS version.

You need to see if your primary boot device is configured for a hard drive (if you have multiple hard drives, you need to select the one with Windows installed).

Save changes and restart your computer.

5. Reset your computer

Type "Reset this computer" in the search bar (in the Start menu) and select the appropriate option. In the new window, you should choose one of two options: Keep my files or Delete all; then enter your password or select Continue.

Now, click "Reset" and wait for the process to complete. If none of the methods worked, and you suspect that the equipment is damaged, you should see a specialist.
