A did a Google-search on that code.
One posting suggested that the date/time in the computer's "BIOS SETUP" was wrong, and needed to be corrected.
Reboot, and enter "BIOS SETUP", and check.
Another posting suggested that your computer is running a "Windows 10 Preview" version, rather than the "official" release. Is that correct?

The "Recovery Tools" are included in this download of Windows 10:
Run this on some other computer, and create a bootable DVD disk.
Boot your computer from this DVD, and select "repair".

> screen still says the same thing, won't let me reboot or repair I can't even get into system recovery at all.
My, my, you're quick -- downloaded 3GB, and burn a DVD, in just a few hours.
Anyway, are you sure that your computer booted from the DVD, or did it boot from the disk-drive?
Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on, and repeatedly press the ESC key.
Then, choose to boot from the DVD.

Enter BIOS SETUP mode, and see if the motherboard detects the DVD drive, as "SATA 1", or something like that.
Is the drive's electronics "dead" -- not responding?
Have either the "data" or the "power" connectors to the DVD (or to the motherboard) come loose?
If you insert a labelled DVD, and close the tray, wait a bit, and open the tray, is the label still at the same position, i.e., the drive has not "spun" the disk at all.
Since it is a "desktop", can you remove the DVD drive, and temporarily connect it to some other computer, to see if it is recognized by that system's motherboard, and that it can successfully read from some media?
