Execute following command:
bcdboot C:\Windows /s C:
I need you to replace C:\Windows folder path if Windows folder is not located on C: partition.
When computer boots into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) environment the drive letter assign to Windows partition may not be C: drive letter because Windows 7, 8 , 8.1 and 10 creates a separate system partition when it's installed from scratch. The system partition contains boot files WinRE assigns the system partition the C: drive letter and the Windows installed partition will be assign any other drive letter usually D: drive letter is assign to Windows installed partition. The Bcdedit /enum | find "osdevice" command can be use to find out the drive letter of the Windows installed partition the output of the Bcdedit command is similar to this osdevice partition=D:. The drive letter after partition= is the drive letter of the Windows partition.

So youre saying use the "i find" command to find out which partition windows is on. Then run your command with that drive instead of c.
So let's say it tells me windows is in drive D: Do i then run the command bcdboot D:\Windows /s D: ?

You are correct but only change the command to bcdboot D:\Windows /s C:

You have no more choice left except for you to backup your personal files and reinstall Windows OS.
