    Toshiba Satellite C55 - inaccessible boot device

    Please help. I have to repair a Windows 10 home computer that can't find the boot partition for some reason. The computer has both UEFI and legacy boot options. I want to boot a Windows 10 ISO from USB and attempt to do a repair install but is their a better option?

    I tried to use an Easy2Boot flash drive loaded with the latest Macrium Reflect rescue ISO changed to a imgPTN extension to run a boot repair but all I got was a spinning progress circle followed by a blank screen.

    Edit: I USB booted to Windows 10 install media which revealed an inaccessible hard drive. The computer is a brand new Toshiba C55D-C5271 purchased at Office Depot by a friend of my mother. It's going back to Office Depot.
