    OK, I got to the Local Windows Installations window. Now this confuses me as my Windows installation was on the C: drive originally. So, how do I proceed at this point?

    dont worry, letters are asigned differently in winpe

    if necessary, click the os to highlight it in blue ( it is already highlighted in your photo so it is already selected)

    click the button that says password reset.

    note:

    you probably dont want to broadcast your key to the whole world, so delete the photo you just posted.

    Do I reboot now after the password reset? Or is there another action to take on this same page?

    when you set a new password, then click OK, it should say "password will be changed at next reboot".

    ok that message, then close winntsetup and reboot

    you werent able to boot in so it hasn't changed.

    you can use cmd prompt from 1904v3 boot media.

    I am not sure what you are trying to do.

    do you have a backup image or restore points?

    if you have an aomei image you should be able to restore it using aomei backupper in the 1904v3 boot media.

    Nope, it just did the same thing booting with the Automatic Repair again. I rolled with it to see if the password change would let me into the command prompt just as a test of the password reset but it still told me that my password was wrong.

    So, I went through the whole procedure again but this time instead of resetting my password as administrator, I selected my Windows ID name and reset the password again but that did not change anything. It still booted to the automatic repair and still said that my password was wrong. I have no clue what to try next. I was wondering if there was a way of using the USB boot drive to access Windows Restore but I have no idea if it can be accessed in that way.

    It doesnt require a password.

    I cannot access my laptop in any way at this point. I cannot open a command prompt. I cannot enter safe mode. I cannot access a Restore Point nor access the registry... nada. I tried last night to make a USB Windows Repair drive and that did not even work. I do not know what I can do since I cannot get into the C: drive whatsoever.
    Oh, you mean it's got worse since you said:

    it looked like it was booting up fine but then there was a message of "Preparing Automatic Repair" that popped up.

    When it get to the options screen, I picked system restore as my first option.
    - so you can't even do that now.

    If your Windows partition has suffered some form of corruption, or the registry is damaged, your options are:

    Recover what you can that you need from your existing disk (using a bootable medium).

    Then either
    a. Restore from an earlier disk image (to a new disk, if your present one is defective- presently still unknown).
    or
    b. Clean install Win 10 (again potentially to a new disk)
