Please refer to this Microsoft document (Link) for an explanation


You can't repair per your post.


Create Windows installation media using this site (Link). Boot to the media. Select Repair.


Select Troubleshoot.


Select Advanced Options


Try a System Restore.


You may have to reinstall Windows if you can't use System Restore. Try other Advanced Options. It sounds like your current W10 installation may be corrupted beyond repair.


I would remove the HDD or SSD before you do a clean OS installation because this will reformat the drive, you will lose data.


Connect the HDD to a different PC before you reinstall Windows, (connect the HDD internally via SATA or use a SATA to USB 3.0 adapter) to recover data.


Now try recovery or reinstallation options (after recovering data) using the W10 installation media.
