    Having a recovery drive or the install media for an OS is always a good idea. If nothing else, you can get into the Command Prompt to run certain utilities.

    As far as I can tell, you never indicated your system had been upgraded from Windows 8. If that is the case, then what you are experiencing is a failed Windows 10 install. I thought I saw a thread where your situation could be corrected but I cannot find it. Possibly it is in the Windows 10 forums. If you get the Install or Recovery media for that system, let us know.

    Be careful about following directions for a Legacy install. Unless you updated from Windows 7 your install is most likely UEFI. If you get the install media, we can determine what configuration you are using and if Windows 10 is involved and possibly be able to edit the BCD store.
