    It looks as if PowerShell is missing from your Windows.
    DiskParInfo.bat does not work without PowerShell.

    Hello,

    Sorry if there has been any confusion but I will try and clear up exactly which drives are which as I don't think I have made it very clear. So I have 3 drives currently in my system:

    • C drive - My M.2 128GB which had my version of windows that I have been using for the last few years (since I built my PC in 2018) and am now unable to access
    • E drive - the 1TB crucial SSD which I more recently purchased and installed, also this drive is where I attempted install the new version of windows to trouble shoot what has happened to my C drive but now cannot access this version either as it seems to have gone RAW
    • D drive - 1TB HDD which I got when I built my PC


    So at the moment the only version of windows I have is the rescue media which I created using this:
    Win10XPE - Build Your Own Rescue Media

    I should be able to create a fresh install of windows on my D drive though if that is what is needed to get the rest of the data required.

    How To Fix The Bad_System_Config_Info Error In Windows 10

    Was it an upgrade from Windows 7?
    I had already tried this above solution but it did not work for me. Also I ran miniTool partition wizard and here was the result:

    Can you access drive C and E via Win10XPE?

    I can access most of my files in the C drive but my E drive is completely unusable at the moment, it says it needs formatting when I click on it.

    At this point though I am not worried about data recovery, I would basically just like to get my E drive back to being usable and fresh install windows onto it as my C drive seems to have a lot of damaged blocks so I will just be removing that from my system and replacing it with a new drive.

    Have you tried to format drive E? If MiniTool does not work, try DiskPart

    If you are able to format it, you can use Win10XPE to clean install Windows 10 on it. You don't need a separate installation medium at all because Win10XPE can mount a Windows ISO file.

    Boot into Win10XPE.
    Go to the device containing the Windows ISO file.
    Right-click on the file and select "Mount".
    In the mounted ISO, open the "sources" folder.
    In the "sources" folder, double-click on the "setup.exe" file to start Windows Setup.

    Even if you are unable to format it, Windows Setup will do it for you.
    Just select a partition as shown below:
