    Please try following command in an admin command prompt and post a screenshot of the result.
    Code:
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth


    If there are problems with RestoreHealth, please follow step 6 or 7 (depending on the file you have from the download) from the tutorial DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Tutorial

    I got as far as step 20)... Was no files in the regback folder. Also was already backup and backup1 folders in the config folder there. Are these worth restoring ?

    Remember, it is about corrupted files, the boot record and registry are not important.

    I looked through the tutorial and don't see anywhere that it talks about not using /online when in a PE environment, Command Prompt or Powershell.

    I thought it whould work if booted from a Windows 10 install DVD/Flash drive though.

    subby, what are you booting to get to a Command Prompt?

    I remember it to work in a PE environment, regardless the /online switch, so long as the source is specified.

    Found this, try it, see if it works:

    Code:
    Dism /Image:D:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    (From what I saw in the diskpart output, D: is your OS/boot drive))

    See if boot rescue will allow you to save all of the important files.

    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums

    Then check the drive with HD Tune or HD Sentinel
    Health (SMART)
    Benchmark
    Full Error Scan (Surface)
    http://www.hdtune.com/
    Hard Disk Sentinel - HDD health and temperature monitoring
    Once the files are backed up and the drive is ok then you can perform a clean install > restore files > make a backup image using Macrium
