Good result.  Posting next steps again to save going back and forth.   It is OK to leave the storage drive and DVD drive connected.

 

Working on the W10 drive, W7 disconnected.

 

To ensure that System Restore is working.

 

Please read, I would use Option 1. > https://www.tenforum...ndows-10-a.html

It will configure System Protection > System restore ensuring that it is switched on, becuase, in your previous topic you found that you did not have any restore points.

OK.  Please now test by creating a manual restore point, and check it has been created.

 

Next steps.

 

!.   Run Windows Update.  Why?, When running DISM, uses Windows Update to provide the files that are required

 

2.   Open CMD as Admin, copy and paste > DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth  > press Enter, (wait until complete, do not close the window)

 

3.   Copy and paste, >  sfc /scannow > press Enter< (wait from competition) > Exit CMD.

 

Hopefully everything comes back OK.

 

There will be one more step to finish working on the W10 drive.
