    BSOD After another, now laptop is not booting to windows

    I don't know how to explain this because obviously, I'm a computer dummy. I have a samsung laptop, not sure about the model but it says Ativ. Prior to this prob. I've already reset the laptop. But after a day of being able to use it again I returned back to the prompt that i need to repair it: efi\microsoft\bcd, so i did bcdboot c:\windows /l en-us (then every bcdboot command possible), but it did not work, it says failure in attemting to copy boot files, i did bootrec but another fail there, i also did sfc / scannow (then sfc command possible like offbootdir...) but it says windows protection could not start the repair. i tried chkdsk many times. I also use diskpart active but it says the drive is not a fix mbr. Now I give up and I want to reset it but it won't allow me because there is a missing partition. I already did renaming the system and the software but to no avail. now I end up having bsod prompt saying my system is missing or corrupt. I don't know what to do anymore. I'm looking into clean installing but I have no installer yet so if you have any ideas, i would be very very grateful.

    PS. Before this, I already tried automatic repair, the log says something like unable repair and they can't figure out the reason.
