    ran the following again...
    sel disk 0
    list par
    select par 2
    del par override
    create par efi
    format quick fs=fat32
    assign letter=W

    bcdboot D:\Windows /s W: /f UEFI

    said it was successful...
    tried to boot without the USB... no
    tried the f12 and shift+f10 after each time it failed to find a boot... press any key to continue
    restarted with USB back in the cmd. prompt
    Thinking about getting a new HD this weekend and learning how to recover data from a drive that will not boot.

    Are you able to post commands with results?

    Please run startup repair > indicate whether it does or does not display a message:

    A SSD is an excellent option for a Windows drive.
    HDs can be used as storage drives.

    Every time I've gone to "repair your computer" instead of "Install Windows" before hitting the cmd. prompt I've hit Startup Repair... seriously... it's got to be close to 50 attempts or more. Each and every time it displays the same result and msg.

    "Startup Repair couldn't repair your PC" Press "Advanced options" to try other options to repair your PC or "Shut down" to turn off your PC.

    I know Albert Einstein never said it and it's an overused cliche... but I am starting to feel little to no confidence that this boot will resolve. Although not insanity... I am getting aggravated and feeling a strong sense of futility. I spent a lot of time and tried similar cmd. codes to find the right fix 3 days prior to joining here.

    Now I'm feeling guilty for seriously thinking about and wanting to just do a fresh install on a new drive... learn how to recover data... and commit to a backup schedule of saving data as well as system images on an external drive.

    I have found my resolve. It may not have been a fix to my issue of a dysfunctional BOOT but it's a direction to move forward with a fresh install and an inspiration to commit to a backup plan and always have a few copies of anything I don't want to lose.

    I thank all who have jumped in in their attempts to help me regain access and restore my PC... especially you zbook even though you've been... lets just say blunt, direct and somewhat commanding. Not offended... in fact I greatly appreciate your efforts in trying to help me out. Thank you.
    If it is ever determined with some certainty what exactly malfunctioned with my BOOT dilemma I will make it a point to get a proper image and report to you and all who have offered assist.

    Again, thank you all. Glad to have found this site. I'll certainly be floating around here in future quests for knowledge of one sort or another.

    Good Morning
