Whenever something goes wrong while booting system, Windows runs into Automatic Repair wizard and fixes the issues automatically. However, sometimes, even the Automatic Repair itself fails to fix the system and thus you have to Refresh or Reset the machine. But we have just came to know that when Automatic Repair fails, you can’t Refresh or Reset your system.
If you try to attempt for Refresh, you will see following error:
There was a problem refreshing your PC. No changes were made.
And if you’re going to use Reset feature, there is another error:
There was a problem resetting your PC.
