    Where does Ubuntu fall in here, did have a dual boot with it ? Second link meaning this one ?
    I think I'm confusing you, sorry about that I meant the second link I had posted up
    http://www.windows10forums.com/threa...ir-cycle.1899/

    I'm semi following what was done in that thread as it is similar to what happened to me. Sadly it seems that they never found a solution to fix that posters problem. And yes I do have UEFI BIOS to answer your question

    Did you notice where it says UEFI, i asked if your BIOS was EFI BIOS as then these methods of booting from the disc to Advanced options will not work.

Like some magical program where if I press a restore button everything will be back where it was before. One can dream right?
    Sorry, not familiar with Linux and this is a Windows forum, not a linux forum. If you are familiar with it good.

    Ah ok sorry. So I downloaded Linux onto my usb and mounted it. I changed my boot settings from my C drive that contains the windows 10 OS to the USB running Linux in order to copy my data from the hard drives onto an external hard drive.

    Currently I am copying all of my files onto the external hard drive and waiting for that process to be finished. Once my data is copied onto the external I will do a clean install of windows 10.

    Hopefully after that I will be able to place back all my data onto my drives.

    Alright, good luck with that process. Make a Windows 10 disc from link for ISO i had shown and burn it to a disk or need software to make a Bootable USB Flash drive if want to use a flash drive to do a clean install of Windows 10.If that process does not work with files, try to get to the advanced options booting from USB or Disc of Windows 10 when you make it. Then follow the link i provided before for this process. https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...dows-10-a.html

    Your Welcome ! Yes, let me know what happens and how it goes, if need more help. If do clean install and if the PC is ASUS can go to that web site and make sure to download all updated system drivers for windows 10 now, making sure to select 32 bit or 64bit system, can also use the motherboard site from ASUS to be able to get updated drivers. Other hardware like Video Card and sound card can be obtained from there websites, as this is important if doing a clean install.
