    Sorry for the delay in answering but my laptop is now playing up!
    Yes I have tried the default setting with and without the USB installed and each time I either get the ReInstall box or the message to say there is no disk.

    I clicked on the link you sent re bootable flash drive and then on the download but am not really sure what I am doing as the language was looked like Latvian. I clicked on WinPESE_x64 201601....iso925 MB but I don't know if this is correct?
    I do have a copy of HIREN'S BOOT that I have never used and don't know if it would help. I might try it to see what happen's. At this stage of the debacle I am willing to try anything!

    I am off on vacation in day's time and would like to get going well before then.

    I have tried Booting from Hiren's Boot CD 15.2 to get this

    I clicked on SmartBoot Manager but not much happened. I don't think it was OK for W10.

    What I would do is scan everything for malware. Copy all files I need onto a USB and do a clean reinstall of win 10. I think someone can provide a direct download link somewhere and just format/reinstall

    I downloaded the WinPESE_x64 201601....iso file and burnt it to a disc, put the disc in my PC and although the disc ran it did nothing at all. Just hung there running!

    Marko, what should I scan? My dead PC or my lap top. I am not very computer savvy and so far everything I have done has not worked. My main PC, upgraded from W7 to W10 OK ran for about a week then I lost access to my C: drive, from that point on I have been taking advice from various people and things have gone from bad to worse.

    Hi. If you're not skilled enough to look into the things then it may be best for a professional to handle it and save you a bunch of frustration.
    It could be from a Memory problem to a HDD malfunction to a software problem.
    If you're sure its not memory or HDD, scan for malware and perhaps format, install everything clean.

    Can tell you much other than that.

    As a last resort I put in my Windows 7 Bootable disc created in Feb 2016. It ran and loaded files etc and then asked for a XXX.cal file of my back ups I have two, one for C: and one for D:. I started on C: and after a while the following error occurred.
