    question about using a boot usb

    I recently did a windows update and now the pc wont boot up but just goes into the repair mode. I have tried all options to no avail. I have made a boot usb as I hoped to be able to just boot into windows with that. There seems to be only 2 options . Repair ( which just goes round the same circuit as I have been before. Install ( which will wipe my machine)
    If I press the install button will it indeed do a full install and wipe my data?
    Thanks for any advice.

    Not sure about the particular USB. You can try downloading the Windows 10 ISO from here and then burn to DVD or delete your USB and use the ISO to create it again. This can be used to install Windows 10, but in first screen there is a link Repair. If you click that, startup repair will start automatically. If unsuccessful you can try the other troubleshooting options available.
