    Are your files backed up?
    If you had to do a clean install would that work?
    Some forum members use Macrium on a regular basis and can restore drives.
    See Use Macrium Reflect Rescue Media to Fix Windows Boot Issues
    If you want to attempt registry back up repair that can be done booting to the windows 10 iso. You would need to know the F key to boot to a device or change the boot order. The when you have booted to the iso you can attempt a registry repair.

    That is the registry backup that I had commented on in the earlier post. In you situation I would be surprised if it works but its worth a shot.

    This is the registry backup method:

    1) boot to the Windows 10 iso
    2) it may take 5 minutes displaying the windows icon
    3) Use the default settings for language, time, currency, and keyboard
    4) click next
    5) In the left lower corner click Repair your computer
    6) click troubleshooting
    7) click startup repair (it is expected to fail)
    8) click system restore (it is expected to fail)
    9) click command prompt
    You should see a pop up with title bar: Administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe
    This is the registry backup method:
    For each step you must see sizeable file sizes for this to work.
    If you see zeros the method will fail.
    The command: dir
    will be used each step to make sure you are in the proper location and check the size of the files
    10) type: C:
    11) dir
    12) type: D:
    13) dir
    Choose the C: or the D: drive to proceed. It should be the windows drive and not the USB drive.
    For this post I will use C: however you should pick the drive letter that you found that has the windows files on your computer.
    The proper drive will display: perflogs, program files, program files (x86), users, windows, etc
    14) type or copy and paste: cd \windows\system32\config
    It should display: C:\windows\system32\config>
    15) type: dir
    It should display: bbi, bcd-template, components, default, drivers, elam, sam, security, software, system, vsmidk, journal, regback, systemprofile txr, etc.
    All of the file sizes should be sizeable. If it displays zeros then abort.
    Make a new directory and name it backup or something similar.
    16) type: MD backup
    Copy all of the files into this new directory.
    17) type or copy and paste: copy *.* backup
    It should now display: bbi, bcd-template, components, default, drivers, elam, sam, security, software, system, vsmidk indicating the files were copied.
    Change the directory to regback
    18) type: cd regback
    It should now display: c:\windows\system32\config\regback>
    19)type: dir
    It should display: default, sam, security, software, system etc
    All of these files must be sizeable. If it displays zeros then abort.
    20) type or copy and paste: copy *.* ..
    It should now display:
    DEFAULT
    Overwrite ..\default? (yes/no/all):
    21) type: a
    It should now display: sam, security, software, system and that the files were copied.
    22) type: exit
    23) click turn off your PC
    Remove the USB flash drive if you had changed your boot order. Otherwise you can leave it and power on your computer.

    If you had factory installed windows or participated in the free upgrade you then should be able to perform a clean install. With a clean install you will delete the partitions, make the drive unallocated, and install windows 10 version 1703 from the iso. Then you will install new drivers, and applications.

    These may be some other options:
