    No folder is still there but is quite smaller; now only 2.38 gb as opposed 12+gb. Ran it a second time and still there, now 2.28gb.

    Used another prgm and took owner with a reg entry and was able to move all but 25 mb to another drive, so now maybe I can delete it now. Will keep posted.

    Was able to finally get rid of all the pro folder thru deletes and cut/paste to other drive and then deleted it. Gonna stop any more repairs for now, since I have enough working to do what I need to do on pc. Thanks all.

    Your issue is different than the topic of this thread. You can use DISM to repair Windows, even if you only can boot to the Command Prompt, as you say, but your Windows folder may be OK, even if it says "inaccessible boot device". So you may not even require DISM repair on your Windows. You can check it using sfc.
    Code:
    sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=C:\ OFFWINDIR=C:\Windows
    However, in Repair mode Windows might not be on C:. It could be on D: or another letter, so the command would need to be adjusted.

    The System partition is separate from the Windows/Boot partition. The System partition can be entirely deleted and rebuilt without changing the files at C:\Windows. It is easier on a UEFI BIOS-mode device, because the winre.wim file (which is what you are booting to when your normal boot fails) is on a separate partition for UEFI. In Legacy BIOS mode, winre.wim is on the System partition, so has to be moved elsewhere if you want to recreate the System partition.
    Hi, sorry that I'm somehow off topic but it seems to me that DISM was the only tool that will make that Win10 Pro of mine to work again but haven't enough time to "play" with it.

    I booted from a Windows 10 x86 edition (I have upgraded from a Windows 7 Pro x86, EN, to Windows 10 Pro) and I saw that now my system partition is (in cmd) E:\. I gived (without much hope) the command that you show me above and here it was:

    Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.

    What now? I will try to reboot and chose another option... Don't know anymore... I'm somehow stuck. Anyone can help?
    My BIOS is non-UEFI (classic one ;-) ).

    adm2019,

    Save all of the important files to another drive or to the cloud.

    See if you can make a Kyhi boot rescue flash drive:
    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums

    If there are problems downloading the tool then you can use Ubuntu:
    Create a bootable USB stick on Windows | Ubuntu tutorials

    Linux to the rescue! How Ubuntu can help a computer in distress | PCWorld

    Using Kyhi boot rescue test the drive using HD Tune: (free version)
    https://www.hdtune.com/

    Using Ubuntu test the drive using HD Sentinel for Linux: (free version)
    Hard Disk Sentinel - Free Linux version

    Use a camera or smartphone camera as needed.
    Save images for all test results.

    Ten Forums has a forum for BSOD.
    You can open a new thread in the forum.

    If troubleshooting steps cannot fix the underlying problem you can plan to perform one of the following steps:
    a) custom install (saves files, reinstall applications and drivers)
    if the above fails then:
    b) clean install (deletes files, reinstall applications and drivers)
    ===========

    I'm interested in saving ALL the programms or MOST of them, more than other things, because I have apps that I don't have anymore the installation kit or the sn.

    My Documents are saved on a separate partition from SYSTEM.

    Maybe a I can make portable all installed apps? How I do that?

    I will follow your advices zbook

    You can run DISM repair commands if sfc is unable to repair Windows. So if you do need to repair Windows with DISM, it is not off-topic after all.

    The command syntax is similar, but using /Image:E:\ instead of /Online.

    You might also consider at some point switching to a 64-bit Windows 10 but that would require a clean install.

    For DISM repair in Windows RE (I will use E: for your Windows drive letter):

    DISM /Image:E:\ /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    See how that works out. If necessary, you can also enable networking or point to install.wim on your Windows install USB as a source for DISM.

    With DISM I often use the /? to get help, as you can easily copy and paste from the help screen to your command line, using the mouse. Left-click and drag to select text. Right-click to copy selected text, and then right-click again to paste to your command line.

    Here is the help screen for DISM repair of an offline Windows image. Note that there is also a command relevant to a failed upgrade:
    "/Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions

    WARNING! You should use the /RevertPendingActions option only in a system-recovery scenario to perform recovery operations on a Windows image that did not boot.

    Example: DISM.exe /Image:C:\test\offline /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions"
