I've had a Boot Camp partition on my late 2012 21.5" iMac for over a year now. The relationship between OS switching has been flaky at best. I had updated my Mac to 10.14.3 several days ago, and had the thought to update Windows as well, mostly to see how Fortnite performed after the update, and because it had been awhile, and gaming was the only reason I installed Windows in the first place.

Yesterday, I restarted into Windows, and let Fornite update, and then let Windows and iTunes/iCloud update, too. Once finished, Windows restarted, and then it got caught in a reboot loop, unable to finish and get back to my login screen. This morning, I woke up to a blue screen telling me that after numerous attempts, Windows could not successfully restart. I then restarted into safe mode, and it got about 16% finished, and failed to boot.

At that point, I held down the power button on my iMac and switched back and my Mac OS startup disk, and posted this problem to you guys.

Has anyone had this problem? I don't know how to resolve it.

Sounds like your windows install got corrupted somehow. You could try repairing it with a windows bootable USB, but I would be careful when doing a startup repair that you don't ruin your macOS startup disk as well.
