-$SysReset

-$Windows.~BT

-WINDOWS

 

Those are the only files on the hard drive.  I am not able to revert back to windows 7 or repair this install.  Is there anything I can do?

The desktop (CQ2024) was upgraded to windows 10 a couple of months ago but not used until recently.

Now is will not boot saying there is no media.

Used Linux disk to check files and only see those. Even the windows 7 recovery partition is empty

The ability to revert back to your previous OS (Win 7) is only good for 30 days....unless of course ytou have genuine original win 7 installation media .....and assuming that you would wish to go back to 7....

 

If indeed you wish to stay on Win 10...I am a little unsure (and I am quite sure someone else will chime in here and correct me if I am wrong..)....but if you were to go to HERE  and download to make a DVD or usb copy....and boot using that.

 

On THIS PAGE  ,  details are given how to approach this, given that the PC will not boot.

 

Without a bootable OS, you'll likely need either the recovery or installation media to boot from. If your system recognises that there is a boot problem, it may automatically show the advanced boot menu automatically after 2 failed boot attempts. As an aside, if you are within Windows 10 you can Shift+Click on the restart option to bring you to the same menu......

.............and continues........
