    From the command line you can also try:

    1. sfc /scannow
    2. chkdsk c: /f

    Thank you philc43.

    Successfully did step 1&2. After step 2 it mentions error 50, after which I exited, and am back in the Automatic options. I have downloaded some tools on usb and will continue to see if I can copy the files across and reinstall.

    None of the restart, reinstall deleting all files were succesfull. Therefore I downloaded windows 10 to USB.

    slmgr.vbs /dli
    wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey
    powershell "(Get-WmiObject -query...

    However F9-11 are able to select boot device etc.

    If you have successfully copied all your data files you are in a good position to do a clean install. As you already had W10 installed you do not need to put in a product key, just skip that step and when w10 is installed it will automatically update from the digital license stored by Microsoft and associated with your hardware. If you are struggling to boot from a USB read this tutorial.

    The situation is USB runs to the first Install step screen prompt 'Report Compatibility' w/ information that this is a new version and need to enter the productkey?
    If I exit and run winver in command line, I get exception 'incompatible winver to the version being executed. verify the information and contact software distributor.' Therefore I exit and restart however repeating the commandline winver, gets exception not found - I verified the directory windows/system32 does not list winver. Therefore looked for ntoskrnl.exe, and I get 'not possible in Win32 mode'. Therefore I try Dism /Online.., I get '
    Error: 50 command line using notepad to view the Dism.log, I search for 'err' but not much of interest, 'architecture=x86' Number of processors=2

    Target Windows version: 10.0.14393
    Source Windows Version: (current download) - (install media on USB is both 32 & 64 versions and done on a working Laptop w/ Windows Core Edition Key Licensed )
