    Thank you so much for all you've done, especially with all that's going on in my life.

    My internet has been down about half the day (and around the neighborhood), and this is the only way I can connect to the internet, so if I don't reply quickly, you know why.. I check this page about 50 times a day, because I want to reply ASAP, in respect to your time (which was why I posted the "3....2.....1.. scannow" - to give you a heads up, to respect your time, especially considering time differences.

    No problem whatsoever, you just let me know when you have some manner of result.
    A good one I hope.

    When I'm given two options (USB flash drive or ISO), I know you want me to choose .Iso, but I don't have a burner.

    You do not need one, you are simply going to use that ISO file to repair windows
    As I said in my post

    I
    T may be best if you go through this post and the guide link to the repair install, and download the ISO,
    and then POST back on here, BEFORE you proceed beyond that step.

    By that I mean do not proceed to MOUNTING the ISO and clicking setup.
    You do not need an ISO burner to do that and there is one included in 10 - even although as I said you do NOT need it
    Post back when you have the ISO file on your desktop
    YOU CHOOSE
    ISO file. Save an ISO file to your PC

    SAVE IT TO YOUR DESKTOP
    or if you missed that part of the guide, wherever you have it saved, if you have not got to that stage yet, put it on the desktop by saving it to there, OR at least make sure you know where it is

    After it finished, I shut down..

    When the first Acer logo came up, I hit F2, nothing happened, so I pressed it a few more times... It sent me to where I have to enter my password, to then enter the desktop, so I SHUT DOWN.

    First logo, I pressed F2 once.. It took a while, but this time, I entered my password, and then this blue screen (that took about 85% of the screen) came up that said "Welcome to Windows".. I hit "SKIP", and here I am.

    The only thing I didn't do is hold down F2, which I'm tempted to do right now..

    Please be more specific - after what finished

    - - - Updated - - -

    If you mean after the ISO download has completed you tried F2 to enter setup to disable secure boot then
    right click the Microsoft icon left of taskbar, hold mouse on shutdown - click restart
    then on Acer logo, tap F2 again

    Yes, after it installed the ISO file onto my desktop..

    I entered BIOS a different way (Settings --> Recovery.. etc)

    Here's what it looked like

    BOOT MODE -- [UEFI]
    Secure Boot [enabled]
    Boot Priority Order
    1. Windows Boot Manager


    I couldn't access "Secure Boot". When I hit the DOWN arrow, it would skip it over.

    You do not hit the down arrow you select the item first and then
    Enabled appears with
    Disabled below it
    then you click the down arrow to move the item highlighted to
    Disabled
    Try that
