    You know that you can actually post the real screenshot, not a picture from your phone. You have to give those helping you time to respond. Not everyone is on here every day or every hour. I was off doing stuff for about two weeks and did not respond to some things that I answered. When the others find free time to respond they will. Just wait and leave the post not bumped since it shows in notifications.
    I completely understand. I did not force anyone to reply immediately.

    Also the device from where I am attempting all the repairs, does not have internet or blue tooth driver. I am not sure if can save custom files like jpeg snapshots on a bootable flash drive (my device has just 1 USB port where I plug the rescue pen drive). Hence sharing snaps taken from my phone. Regret inconvenience, if any.

    post a pic(s) of the complete contents of > C:\Recovery

    what we are going to do is use diskpart to format C drive (partition 3)

    then use Dism to apply Index 2 of the install.wim to C

    Then Replace the MS winRE.wim in c:\windows\system32\recovery with the OEM Winre.wim (U Copied)

    we will wait on importing the current pc drivers (u exported) into the new OS,
    as one of them may be the cause of your issue..

    But, I would like to see the files inside > C:\Recovery Folder, First..

    PS.. You can open FSCAPTURE and select take a snapshot of active windows
    Here are the images of all contents within C:\Recovery. FSCapture worked really well.

    Where will the install.wim be? I copied only the winre.wim which you mentioned earlier. May be some more details will help me. Sorry to bother you much!

    I assume this is a Touch Tablet with 32GB SSD, running Windows 10 Home > AM I correct ???

    This process will take a little time to explain, and requires you to have some computer experience, otherwise it will take a little more effort on my part...

    For now > I want you to copy the Install.wim or Install.esd from the Windows Installation Media ( sources\install.*** ) into the Rescue Media's /Sources folder...

    Which is it > Install.wim or install.esd ????
    Which is Version your PC > Home or Pro ???
    Copy that C:\recovery Folder to the rescue media usb...

    It is a wim
    You should end up with a
    Drivers
    and a
    Recovery
    Folder on the root of Rescue Media ( D:\ )

    You should now have
    the MS Setup Media > Install.wim
    the OEM Recovery Tools you copied > winre.wim
    and the Rescue Media > boot.wim
    in the sources folder on the Rescue media USB ( D:\ )

    I meant: In recovery USB sources I have a winre.wim and boot.wim.

    I am presuming the install.wim is new Win10 ISO or some sort. Am I right ?

    great. I have them.

    I will create the bootable media for Win 10.
    Then I will copy the recovery folders within the same drive.

    What are the next steps ?
