    You can mount the Software hive to check and add missing registry key.

    Open the Command Prompt from Windows Recovery Environment and execute regedit.exe command.

    From Registry editor select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE key, click File from menu bar and select Load Hive... option. Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Config folder and select Software hive to mount it give it a temporary name as Temp.

    Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Temp\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon key and let us know Winlogon is there or not.

    I was flying until my keyboard decided to produce # instead of \ when I needed to enter C:\Windows\System32\Config in the file name field of the "Load Hive" window.

    Did you configured your keyboard language?

    You can browse to Config folder.

    You can write it all in a text file, put it somewhere accessible such as a USB stick and see if you can paste the correct the text in using Copy & Paste [Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V].
    Note that when using the WRE command prompt you can have Notepad open showing your text file at the same time as you are working with the Hive and you can also rearrange the windows using WinKey+LeftArrow & WinKey-RightArrow so you can see what you are doing all the time.

    You have to load the Software hive and when promoted to name the loaded hive you give it a Temp name.

    The loaded Software hive is not the hive for Windows 10 Software hive it belongs to Windows Recovery Environment.

    I can not find the NTUSER.DAT file/folder. I think a reinstall is now favorite, I just hope I can reinstall my files from the WindowsImageBackup.
