Here are three pics.  I don't know enough about this, but shouldn't my D drive be the C drive?

Sorry for the lack of response; today has been a loss as severe storms in QLD have effected power supply with brown outs and power cuts, this has been messing up my computers.

 

PE is Windows Preinstallation Environment (also known as Windows PE and WinPE) is a lightweight version of Windows used for the deployment of PCs, workstations, and servers, or troubleshooting an operating system while it is offline. It is intended to replace MS-DOS boot disks and can be booted via USB flash drive,

 

MCT would have used GPT if you had a UEFI  BIOS and MBR for a Legacy BIOS. 

To check; Start Disk Management, in the Bottom left-hand side, >  right click on the disk that contains W10 > from the drop down menu > click properties > at the top of the window that open > click volume, you can then see the partition style.

 

Diskpart displays the volumes in the order it sees them and assigns letters accordingly, so they often are not the same shown in Disk Manager.

 

As we are trying to run W10 to enable a backup, start.

 

With only the W10 disk attached.

 

1.   From your Windows USB stick, > trouble-shooter > CMD as Admin.

type  > press Enter,   after completion, Do not exit.

 

At the flashing curser, Type DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth > press Enter,  after completion > type exit press enter.  > restart.

Thanks for taking the time.
I have tried the online dism stuff and it says Online does not work.

And I cannot boot to the Win 10 drive anymore, I can only go to the advanced options using the MCT.

Error : 

Windows 10 Boot Error Code 0xc00000e BSOD

Did SFC find any problems?

 

Dism may not work as possible internet is not active.

 

Did you check for the partition style?

Tried the SFC scannow

 

Verification 100%

BUT windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation

 

The partition style is NOT GPT

OK, looks like we have to point to the source file for repairs.   or

Repair W10 Boot.  A possible issue with that is, you will have to boot the OSs separately as the W7 Ebcd settings may not work b

I hope you are still able to boot to 7 for work. 

I will get back to you later.

 We will try a boot rebuild.

 

With  only the W10 disk connected and the MCT USB.   (remove the Macrium USB)

 

Boot mct and navigate to the CMD.

 

Type each command > press enter, wait, 

 

bootrec /FixMbr > enter

 

bootrec /FixBoot > enter

 

bootrec /ScanOs > enter

 

bootrec /RebuildBcd > enter

 

Exit > enter and Restart.

Based on the pictures on Post #16, the System Reset. drive C:, is the Recovery Partition, The OS partition may be the D: drive. You should run CHKDSK /R D:.

 

To confirm, type D: and press Enter, then cd /d d:\ and press Enter. Type dir /a:d and Press Enter. See the folders. If the Users and Windows folder are present, then the D: drive is your OS drive.

 

If confirmed, type:

 

CHKDSK  /R D:

 

Post a photograph of the window when finished.

No D: does not contain my windows folder, it contains my bootmrg files.

C is my windows folder

Ran chkdsk /r c: instead

I might give JSntgRvr a chance to reply before we try anything else with Boot repair.

 

Did you get an error message when you tried to start W10?

 

Can you enter the BIOS, go to the Boot menu and record the order listed?

Check your BIOS under Boot Mode to see if the boot selection is UEFI, Legacy or both.

BSOD error code 

0cx000021a

 

The order is my samsung drive, it the only one.  Unless I plug in my usb and change the boot order - samsung 500 gig ssd with win 10 is the only one connected at present.

 

And a new diskpart if needed:

Hi and welcome.
 
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
 
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
 
Boot in the Recovery Environment
  • Plug your USB Flash Drive in the afected computer
  • To enter the Recovery Environment with Windows Vista and Windows 7, follow the instructions below:
  • Restart the computer
  • Once you've seen your BIOS splashscreen (the computer manufacturer logo), tap the F8 key repeatedly until the Advanced Boot Options menu appears
  • Use the arrow keys to select Repair your computer, and press on Enter
  • Select your keyboard layout (US, French, etc.) and click on Next
  • Click on Command Prompt to open the command prompt
Note: If you can't access the Recovery Environment using the F8 method above, you'll need to create a Windows installation or repair media. It can be made on the computer itself or another one running the same version of Windows as the one you plan to use it on. For more information, check out this tutorial on SevenForums.
 
  • To enter the Recovery Environment with Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, follow the instructions in this tutorial on EightForums
Note: If you can't access the Recovery Environment using the method above, you'll need to create a Windows installation or repair media. It can be made on the computer itself or another one running the same version of Windows as the one you plan to use it on. For more information, check out this tutorial.
  • To enter the Recovery Environment with Windows 10, follow the instructions in this tutorial on TenForums
Note: If you can't access the Recovery Environment using the method above, you'll need to create a Windows installation or repair media. It can be made on the computer itself or another one running the same version of Windows as the one you plan to use it on. For more information, check out this tutorial on TenForums.
 
Once in the command prompt

 

  • In the command prompt, type notepad and press on Enter
  • Notepad will open. Click on the File menu and select Open
  • Click on Computer/This PC, find the letter for your USB Flash Drive, then close the window and Notepad
