    Your PC it trying to boot in Legacy Mode.. And you disk is UEFI

    Use the F12 Boot Menu and select from UEFI Options
    Or disable Legacy /CSM Mode in BIOS

    Alright, I got Windows installed and everything is working great! Thank you very much KYHI for your time and great advice. Bootable PE Rescue Boot Disk is an amazing tool, I've learned immensely from all of this. Again, I greatly appreciate your assistance with my problem.

    Many thanks for your solution! Bootable PE Rescue Boot Disk is so helpful. It saved my computer after 5 days of attempting all sorts of troubleshooting steps to successfully start windows to no avail.

    This facility in Macrium is basic but just works with no effort.

    ALSO now that you have a way to access your files - you can copy them to another drive,,
    just in case you need to do a reinstallation..
    This really did help! Thank you!
