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.

 

  • Hold the Power Button for 5 seconds or until the computer completely shuts off.
  • Press the Power Button to turn the computer on.
  • As soon as you see the rotating loading circle, press and hold the Power Button until the computer shuts off.
  • Repeat this process 2 or 3 times until you see the Preparing Automatic Repair screen.
  • Let the computer boot to the Automatic Repair screen.
  • Click Advanced Options, and then select Troubleshoot.

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 

 

diskpart

list disk

 

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.


Chkdsk D: /r



Please replace partition letter D: with Windows installed partition letter.  When computer boots into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) environment the drive letter assign to Windows partition may not be C: drive letter because Windows 7, 8 , 8.1 and 10 creates a separate system partition when it's installed from scratch. The system partition contains boot files WinRE assigns the system partition the C: drive letter and the Windows installed partition will be assign any other drive letter usually D: drive letter is assign to Windows installed partition. The Bcdedit /enum | find "osdevice" command can be use to find out the drive letter of the Windows installed partition the output of the Bcdedit command is similar to this osdevice partition=D:. The drive letter after partition= is the drive letter of the Windows partition.

Alright I ran the commands you suggested and am currently waiting for checkdisk to finish. I also typed the command "bcdedit /set {GUID} recoveryenabled No" to disable Automatic Repair.

I will update you once it's finished.

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.

Here is what it said in SrtTrail.txt:
Root cause found:
Boot status indicates that the OS booted successfully.

All the tests were completed successfully with error code 0x0
The disk is MBR btw.
