    Windows 10

    Repair, recover, reset, bootrec not working

    Hi everyone, I turned off my pc without properly shutting down and have not been able to boot into windows since.

    Using a windows 10 recovery usb , I have tried the following to no avail:
    1. Reset PC (Drive needs to be unlocked)
    2. Recover (There was a problem recovering your PC)
    3. Startup repair (error msg)
    4. Bootrec /rebuildbcd (error msg)
    5. Chkdsk /f (Didn't work)
    6. Checked disk attributes with diskpart and readonly is not marked.

    I'm pretty much all out of ideas at this point. I could buy an external HDD and install windows on it and try to boot from there but I'm hoping there's something else I can try first.
