    The OP has a Win10XPE USB stick, which can be used to clean install Windows 10.
    Clean installation takes no more than 30 minutes, while the troubleshooting has been going on for a week.

    Agree 100%. Either make a backup image of the old Windows 10 to recover data files from it, or shrink the old Windows 10 partition by as much as possible and do a clean install to the free space created by shrinking the old Windows partition.

    To shrink the old Windows partition, run the following commands:

    DiskPart
    List Volume
    Select Volume C 👉 (Make sure Volume C is the Windows partition.)
    shrink desired=409600 minimum=102400 👉 (It will be shrunk by at most 400 GB and at least 100 GB)

    b1gt1m, during installation you can also delete all partitions but not the C: partition.

    Then choose to install on the C: partition (that has damaged windows). It will be created a Windows.old folder and all existing files and folders will be moved to this folder and then installed a new Windows under C:.
    Once installed, you go to C:\windows.old\users"name" and move your files to the new library.
    Once done, delete C:\windows.old with all remaining files and folders.

    Agree! Although, my daughter's computer had the same problem a while ago. I took the hard drive out of here computer and put it in my desktop computer. I then used the dism command to "Revert Pending Actions". After that I was able to boot her hard drive in my desktop computer, do all the updates, then re-install the hard drive back into her computer. But that is certainly not guaranteed to work in this case.
    How 'Exactly' did you this? I do have another windows 10 desktop I have access to that I can do this on! This may well be the answer to this enormous technical headache!!

    The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
    The requested system device cannot be found.

    Code:
    Windows resource protection found corrupt files and was unable to repair some of them.


    Which of these were found:

    Code:
    %systemroot%\Minidump
    %systemroot%\memory.dmp
    %systemroot%\LiveKernelReports
    %windir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
    C:\WINDOWS\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
    C:\Windows\memory.dmp
    C:\Windows\Minidump
    C:\Windows\LiveKernelReports





    Consider:

    OK I found the cbs.log file, it is 52Mb in size, an no that's not a typo!!! I'm thinking of deleting all the cbs.log files off the disk an then running SFC again. Would you agree?

    Alternatively you may be able to change C:\WINDOWS\Logs\CBS\CBS.log > C:\WINDOWS\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.old

    Instead of deleting it? There's a 2Mb limit on uploads...

    You can upload only one file at a time instead of putting all files into one ZIP file to be uploaded.

    Also you can use share links (one drive, drop box, or google drive).

    I connected her drive to a SATA port and it got a drive letter, say F:. Then the command was:

    Code:
    dism /Image:F:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions
    Then I added the second Windows to my boot menu:

    Code:
    bcdboot F:\Windows /d /addlast
    Then rebooted into the second Windows and it worked.
