Load the Windows 10 installation media and choose repair and then choose boot problems, it should fix you right up.

If you have any windows disk at all boot from it. When it gets to the main screen press Shift F10. A command window will pop up. Find which drive your windows directory is on. It may be on C: but may not. Once you have found it, and I will assume it is C drive type in bcdboot c:\windows. Then restart your computer. This should work. Good luck.

You can obtain a copy of Windows 10 here;
Burn it to a DVD or make a bootable USB stick.

A CD is not big enough, you have to use a DVD or a USB stick.

First things first - do you have any important data on this computer that has not yet been backed up ? If you have, you need to deal with that first. Probably the simplest way is to use a self-booting Linux CD - Puppy comes to mind - and copy your data to external storage. If you go to the Linux section here on BC and search for 'Puppy' you will find instructions on how to do this.
Part of the problem here is that this is probably going to be #9 in this topic and none of us knows yet what sort of computer you have - desktop, laptop or what. Make and model of your computer is important and useful information.
Once your data is safe then, as Rocky said, yoou need the use of a working computer and either a blank DVD or an 8GB memory stick to put the Win 10 installation files onto. If you go to this MS web-site you will find the OS and instructions on how to download the installer and use it -
Once you have it in the proper form, either on DVD or USB, then it is merely a matter of installing the OS onto your computer. This will be a full install so you are almost certainly going to have to re-install all your applications once you have got the OS up and running, and then you can put your data back.
I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !

How do a put it on a DVD if it's a download never done this before
You can just right click ISO, and select burn. Or else you can download imgburn and burn it that way.

Ok it says I need a product key code and I was doing the free upgrade so it won't go through now what do I do
If it says you need a product code you downloaded the wrong version. You need to go home to home, or pro to pro. Unless there is an option to skip.
