    Hi,

    The OP deleted a second installation of Windows 10 that was set up to dual boot thinking that might be part of the problem. You will also notice the OP has a System Reserved partition which is not being used to boot the computer from.
    Ok, I see that now. So, the boot store is messed up, hence your subsequent advice.

    Thanks,

    If this is wrong, please help me fix it. If I don't need that System Reserved partition, I'll delete it. I'd like to end up with the cleanest system I can make. Thank you.

    I'm using Roxio to try and burn the file to a flash drive. However, Roxio is not recognizing the flash drive - only the disk drive. What should I do? Thanks........

    The normal setup for a legacy bios computer, which yours appears to be is:
    BIOS/MBR-based hard drive partitions | Microsoft Docs



    The computer normally boots from the System (System Reserved) partition.

    To make a bootable USB flash drive of Kyhi's recovery drive, open a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin):
    diskpart
    list disk
    select disk # <- replace # with the actual disk number of the USB flash drive
    clean <- this will erase the drive selected above, make sure it is the USB flash drive!
    create part pri
    format fs=fat32 quick
    active
    assign
    exit
    exit

    Then mount the downloaded ISO file, in Windows 10 (or 8/8.1)) right click on it and select mount. Then copy all the files and folders from the mounted ISO file to the USB flash drive. This is also the exact same procedure to make a bootable flash drive to install Windows with if you have the ISO file saved.

    My thread was hijacked so I lost touch. In addition to the above, I also now have a flash drive with the contents of Kyhi Recovery Tool on it. Please tell me what to do now. Below is my DM screenshot.
