    Sorry, but it appears that the root key and registry header has been wiped out.

    Do you have the COMPONENTS file from a recent backup?

    An in-place upgrade (repair installation) may be possible.

    Create Windows 10 installation media using a DVD or 8GB+ USB flash drive with the tool here: Download Windows 10

    Once the media has been created, run Setup.exe. Choose not to install updates. When prompted, select the option to Keep personal files and apps.
