You may need to rebuild the boot loader files from Win10 installation media. I suggest you to refer to the thread below and check if it helps, it is for Win8 bbut the process is the same for Win10: http://www.windowswally.com/how-to-fix-error-code-0xc0000185/

Thanks for reply, have tried the suggested website, but still have the same two error codes.
 
Tried Start up repair and get the message: Couldn't repair PC.
Tried chkdsk / R and get the message: Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.
Tried Bootrec /scanos and get the message: Scanned successfull, total identified windows installations:0
Tried Bootrec /fixmbr and get the message: Operation successful
Tried Bootrec /fixboot and get the message: Operation successful
Tried Bootrec /RebuildBcd and get the message: Scanned successfull, total identified windows installations:0
 Does the above [total identified windows installations:0] mean that a windows installation cannot be found?
 
I have now done a fresh install of windows 10, but still have the same error codes come up.

NOTE:  Try a clean boot to see if the problem clears up that way:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows
If it does, then different troubleshooting steps are called for.

Here's some repair/recovery/restore options (try them in this order):

1 - Startup Repair.  Run it 3 times, rebooting in between tries.

2 - System Restore to a point before this started happening.

3 - DISM/SFC repair (DISM doesn't work with W7, although SFC does)  - doesn't work if you're not able to boot to Windows (let me know and I'll post a way to do it from Startup Repair)
    

Then please run the following DISM commands to see if there's any problems with the system (from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt).  Press Enter after typing it:
   
Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    FYI - I have repaired systems using the last command even though problems weren't found with the first 2 - so I suggest running them all.

    From this article: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824869.aspx

    You can also run sfc.exe /scannow from an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt to check for further corruption. Include the CBS log (located at C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log) if you'd like to have a Windows Update expert check it (I don't check them because I can't read them)


4 - RESET using the "Keep My Files" option (W8 calls this a REFRESH; W7 and earlier doesn't have this function)

5 - Repair install of the OS (Thanks to FreeBooter!):

6 - RESET using the "Remove Everything" option (W8 calls this a RESET; W7 and earlier doesn't have this function)

If using W7 or earlier, this can be accomplished by resetting the system by use of the recovery partition/recovery disks/recovery drive.
If you don't have them, you can usually order them from the OEM manufacturer of your system ( US points of contact here:  http://www.carrona.org/recdisc.html )

7 - Wipe and reinstall from the Recovery Partition (if so equipped)

8 - Wipe and reinstall from Recovery Media - to include deleting all partitions.
If you don't have them, you can usually order them from the OEM manufacturer of your system ( US points of contact here:  http://www.carrona.org/recdisc.html )
