    All commands should have a space before forward slash
    Did you put a space between U:/S ? should be U: /S
    Yes I agree with it.

    I did that too, I did that first but it says: "the parameter is incorrect"

    Don't know what to tell you.
    I just tried myself and here's the screen shot:

    If you can tell me where to host an image I can take a screen shot photo of the computer with this Internet-device that I'm using to write this.
    *I found a host and took a photo but I'm not sure how to make it show up as an image so here's the link instead:

    I will say that my screen looks different

    The box itself at the top on the margin is:

    (tiny image of command prompt) Administrator: X:\windows\SYSTEM32\cmd.exe


    And your line of command code begins differently than mine,

    where yours is:

    C:\windows\system32>


    Mine is:

    X: \Sources>

    Followed by the cursor underscore thing

    Does that all matter or not?

    I have also used the following:

    *****
    Booting to WinRE will give you the tools to access your entire C:\ but you need to determine what drive letter WinRE has given to your C:\ for the session you have booted to. To achieve this you use DISKPART.

    Boot to your WinRE ("repair mode" as you call it)
    Type DISKPART and press Enter
    Type LIST VOL and press Enter
    You will need to identify which is your system drive letter - this is often easily identifiable as they are often titled SYSTEM or WINDOWS or WIN8 etc. and often have the volume capacity (another easy bit of information to identify your C:\).
    Make a note of the drive letter assigned by the WinRE environment - it may not be C:
    Type EXIT and press Enter - The command prompt will return to the X:\Sources> prompt
    Type your noted C: and press Enter - it should change the working directory to the drive letter. To verify it is your C:\ type dir and press Enter and you should see your Users folder which you can enter into (cd Users) and dir again to see your user account.
    *****

    I did as they said and can get the command line to:

    C:\>

    And typing:

    Dir
    = I get the directory of C:\

    Dir users
    = I get a list of the computer users

    But from here I can't access further (maybe because I don't know how or if it's possible)

    When you boot into the Recovery Environment, It loads a WinPE version of Windows into memory and run from there. The main drive in WinPE is X: instead of C: and it's fine.

    I suspect since your Windows OS is OEM from Toshiba and it does not have an EFI System Partition. Each manufacturer customizes the partition layout in a non standard way and cause lots of problem whem comes to Windowws Updates.

    Open Admin command again and type bcdedit | findstr "path"

    copy and paste the result

    Okay so typing exactly as you have written and shown, the reply is simply:

    'findstr' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

    Sorry, My Bad. Apparently Findstr is not available in WinPE.
    How about just type: bcdedit and look for the line with "path"

    Alright, no problem, so typing:

    bcdedit

    It says:

    The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found.


    but then typing:
    Bootrec /fixboot

    It says:
    The operation completed successfully.

    I'm not sure what that is though. I am trying to learn.
