Windows 10: Windows 10 won't boot(Either repartitioning or UEFI to blame)!

    Windows 10 won't boot(Another one!)

    So here's the story: I shrunk my windows partition on my computer to make room for a new dual-boot.I also deleted a linux install, but windows was never detected by grub2, it booted exclusively from UEFI. Due to other issues shortly thereafter I reset my bios. I then started up my computer and it loaded the MSI logo, then a black screen. I switched the BIOS to legacy boot, and started up a live cd successfully, in an attempt to rescue a few files then wipe the whole thing and restart. Linux, unfortunately would only mount partitions a, d, g(see below), as read only, giving me this message: "The NTFS partition is in an unsafe state. Please resume and shutdown Windows fully (no hibernation or fast restarting)"

    Current Status:
    My system currently has the following the following Partitions(in order):
    a)WinRE tools (ntfs, 600 MB)
    b)SYSTEM (fat32, 300 MB)
    c)Microsoft reserved partition (unknown, 128 MB)
    d)OS_Install (ntfs, 391.39 GB)
    e)no label (ntfs, 787 MB)
    f)Data (ntfs, 255.22 GB)
    g)BIOS_RVY (ntfs, 18.72 GB)
    h)246.41 GB unallocated space

    I can install and boot legacy to other OSs.

    Question: Can I fix the install? if not, How do I get the product key out of it?
