    See the first code in post # 17.
    The setupact log reported that it did not find a bootable partition.
    It finds a storage drive or a gendisk?
    It is unclear why it reports this in the log.

    A backup image gives you more flexibility for trial and error steps.
    Backup images are not always 100 %.

    The most efficient and effective management plan appears to be clean install as commented by Brink earlier in the thread.

    Stupid question but are you sure you have updated to 1809?

    Your screenshots show 1803 and the diskpart code you posted shows Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17134.320]

    Windows 1803 is 17134, Windows 1809 is 17763

    1803 doesn't have Dark Explorer as far as I know.

    Never said it did. 1809 does.

    I'll go ahead and clean install. But to make sure I dont want the same garbage to happen after I clean install. What do I do to make sure this doesnt happen?

    1) Comparing UEFI/GPT to BIOS/MBR the UEFI has benchtest faster speed and improved security.
    Consider modifying the BIOS to UEFI before the next upgrade.
    Windows will install the operating system using UEFI/GPT instead of BIOS/MBR

    2) Create a bootable windows 10 iso 1809:
    Download Windows 10

    3) Boot to the iso and delete all partitions forming an unallocated drive > install Windows 10 build 1809

    4) Make sure that there is only one drive installed other than the flash drive during the Windows clean install
