Did you encrypt the 'whole drive' ,just the 'C:\' or the 'reserved partition'?
Did you upgrade your Windows 10 to a newer build after encrypting?

I encrypted the whole C: drive as c: is the only partition. No I didn't upgrade to a new Windows 10 build after encrypting my boot drive. I reinstalled windows from my
backup disk and encrypted it then it ran a little longer before rebooting. Any help would be more then appreciated.

It could be that windows doesn't load the veracrypt driver and fails. A simple solution would be to decrypt the partition and encrypt it again(if you like).
