    think you have an option for command prompt.....if so could try some repair commands......sfc /scannow

    Just did that. It says "There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again."

    some other commands you can try....

    all else fails you can run repair commands to fix the boot record

    with bootrec.exe

    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec.exe /fixboot
    bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd

    not sure if
    bootrec /fixmbr is meant to be bootrec.exe. etc or if the others should have .exe omitted.....getting out of my depth......searching on google for you

    bootrec /fixBoot
    bootrec /rebuildBCD

    I did all three. Now command prompt says Total identified Windows installations: 2
    [1] E:\Windows
    Add installation to boot list? Yes(Y)/No(N)/All(A)

    possible one is your old windows OS....or a virtual drive created by windows...only guessing

    my guess is to say no.....and run repair option again...

    can an always go back to this.....I have sent Blink ( admin) a PM asking if he can help

    another thought is if you can't get it to boot into safe mode.....F8 no longer available in windows 10.....to recover any data if you decide to start again.....then burn a Linux disk and run LIVE do not install, this will give you access to your HDD folders an external HDD or USB pen

    I hit no and another one came up. [2] E:\Windows.old\Windows with the same yes/no/all option. I said no to that too and tried to run repair like you said. It still can't fix it. I have command prompt back up, I hit no again so its at [2] E:\Windows.old\Windows right now.

    windows.old is the old files left over after you upgraded to windows 10, the first thing I do when upgrading an OS is delete these....wasn't easy with windows 10.....had to research it and use windows cleanup and eventually it had the option to delete windows old.....I would say you don't need windows.old but it should just be a folder.....do you have any data you need to get off. is it just programs apps etc.....if you want to get any data music pictures or docs use the Linux live Cd and run as live DO NOT INSTALL and back up all your data, might be a good time to do this.....if you have nothing of importance and can reinstall any apps then chose to delete windows.old.....you have to be a rocket scientist to work with windows nowadays....
