    Yes, even with USB plugged in, I get "Could not find the recovery environment - insert recovery media and restart your PC with the media." I did not change the Partition 3 ID yet.

    Thanks a million for your patience. Partition 3 reset to recovery, reagentc /info indicates RE is enabled. System Refresh now says "Insert Media - Some files are missing,. Your Windows installation or recovery media will provide these files."
    Now I will try Win 10 upgrade again and report back. [Does Microsoft know about you?]

    You need to download the correct version of Windows 8.1 that matches your UEFI firmware (BIOS) embedded Windows 8/8.1 product key.

    How to download and clean install Windows 8.1 if you have an OEM computer with UEFI firmware (BIOS) embedded Windows 8/8.1 product key. -> link

    Note: If you have an OEM computer with UEFI firmware (BIOS) embedded Windows 8/8.1 product key, the Windows 8.1 installer should automatically detect product key from UEFI firmware (BIOS).
    Note: When installation is finished, Windows 8.1 will be activated automatically, if your internet connection is up and running.

    Same problem here with updating to Windows 10. I have a Dell Inspiron 3847. Also repartitioned my C-drive using EaseUs software.

    In Diskpart the following shows:
