"Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC00000D4, Event ID. 29"
This error appears sometimes when the booting is slower than normal (Fast Startup is enabled) and I get then for a 1 minute a black screen (without the small dotted circle) directly after POST and Windows Startup Sound, Followed by normal booting (Windows Lock Screen). To me this looks like the regular Windows 10 booting instead of Fast Booting.
No errors when I turn off "Fast Startup" (powercfg -h off):
I Refreshed the hiberfil.sys File but not yet ran sfc /scannow as this is not really a problem (no other system issues): I just updated: March 24, 2020—KB4541335 which was big and my system may stabilize later.
Anyone else has seen this error in Event Viewer?
