    I'm still concerned about the Short DST fail on the diagnostic. Usually it's a start of a hard drive failure. But, this isn't always the case. If I were you, I'd make an image just in case so you do not have to reinstall everything in the future.

    Thank you all so very much, I was able to fix my problem and am now currently using the Windows 10 Pro version with no problem what so ever!
    Your very welcome mate, now may I suggest that you turn on system restore, create yourself a repair cd and create regular images on a external hard drive before you make any major changes so you don't end up in the same position again, also check that the images you make can be read by the repair cd.

    Im sorry for saying this but, how do you mean there when you say that I should make an Image? How do I do that? I dont have a DVD Disc inserter on this laptop sadly enough..

    I dont have a DVD Drive, which blows way hard, and I would need a USB Drive which has about 1 TB of space, because the current USB Flashdrive that I normally use isnt exactly made for great things, only for like movies or something since it has room for 7.62 GB and not more

    Ok extract the contents of the usb flash drive you used to install windows to a folder on your other PC and keep it safe it will act as a repair disk if needed just copy the contents back to the flash drive.
