You may be able to reset Windows 10 with the option to keep your personal files but you would need to reinstall all your programs you installed after purchase.
If you have a restore point I would try that first.
Under Troubleshoot should be System Restore. Advanced Options can also get you to a command prompt.

See this video. If you have a GPT disk which I believe you do then there is no MBR. You can verify by opening a command prompt and typing
You should see an asterisk under the GPT column.
If you do you may have to rebuild the EFI boot partition per the below guide. The guide is for Windows 8 but the same steps are used for Windows 10. If rebuilding the EFI does not work then you may need to do a reset with the option to keep files or use the Media Creation Tool to create install media and do a clean install.
A log to look at is \Windows\System32\LogFiles\SrtTrail.txt
The txt file will give a clue on why the Automatic Repair failed.
I am not sure if the Type command is available on the Rescue CD. If it is them navigate to the Logfiles directory and type
Type Srttrail.txt | more

Please boot your computer with Windows Setup Media and from Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt.
Please type below command into Command Prompt and press Enter key.
Following command will fixes errors on the disk and locates bad sectors and recovers readable information.

See this post by BC member FreeBooter. If the registry Hives in the Regback folder have a date before the problem then restoring the HIVES from the Regback folder may get the computer to boot.

Use the Repair Disk to do a Startup Repair. It can take up to three attempts before the repair is complete.

Did you do the steps to repair the EFI loader I linked to if the disk was GPT? Post#4
