    Slow Down and take one step at a time.

    If you still have windows 10 on the usb drive from your last screenshot tick first boot device and usb only.

    If you can boot from the usb into windows 10 see if you can repair.

    But at the moment we don't even know if your Hard Drive is dead or working.
    Mhm, thats an issue, but if its ALIVE then I should probably do this Click image for larger version.

ID:	29210I downloaded the windows 10 as you asked, formated the flashdrive so that I got the proper windows 10 pro installment that I needed, and I did not download to this computer, I downloaded to the flash drive and not to a .iso for a burner

    First Boot device usb.
    Its already ticked, should I disable all the others and let the USB Device Boot be enabled all by itself?

    Yes then take your bootable usb with windows 10 on and see if it will boot from the usb but don't do anything rash if it does.

    This time when you feel like you need to "clean your disk space" or whatever you were talking about in the video. Only attempt to do that with the built in Disk Cleanup app or use CCleaner to take care of it.

    uhm Bazz, the Windows 10 requires a product key. But I already had a product key on my laptop, now I need a new one? This is wrong, this shouldnt have happened, do I need to contact microsoft or something?? This is really bugging me out, please help me yet again. :S :'(

    Just skip it and don't enter any key. You say you've upgraded and used it for several hours. It will activate.
