    If memory checks and reseating has no effect, is it possible for to return to X:\windows\system32

    If so, >Enter< the following inside the code box to fix errors on the disc:

    X:\windows\sysetm32> chkdsk /F c:
    Hopefully, C: is still the letter assigned to the partition where you want to install windows.


    I did the test and nothing came out. Then I tried to install Windows 10 using bootable UBS. Then during the first loading screen I always the same error BSOD screen PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA.

    I tried to test HDD from BIOS (Diagnostics) in the black screen picture. and next I got an error. Please look at the next pic.

    As I said, I deleted all the partition and installed Ubuntu so there is no C or recovery drive anymore. How can I access command prompt then? Looking for your suggestions.

    I would try creating and then booting from Kyhi's Recovery drive:

    On the image posted, Dell's test indicates the hard drive is faulty:
    Error Code 2000-0142
    Hard drive 0 -S/N (...) Long self test unsuccessful.

    Now, you have Ubuntu on this HDD, and it works??

    Ubuntu has a Disk Utility where you can check the HDD health. Perhaps, performing some Self-Tests with it may give some more enlightment...

    How is it going?

    NavyLCDR suggested the above Bootable PE Rescue Disk since it contains AOEMI Partition Assistant Pro, and there is also the question whether Ubuntu may have taken over the MBR, and that is why Windows 10 is not finding the partition to which you want W10 installed.

    We would appreciate your posting an update.
