System Restore issues Recovery from recovery disk set disk#1 not recognized as a boot disk

pavilion HPE h8-1360t
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I recently restored my system to restore point set prior to a failed upgrade to W10 . The restore was "successful" but then...

 

When I boot up, I get normal login but when I enter my password system tells me it is setting up my desktop??  Then it stalls in never never land. When I  boot in safe mode I get my normal desktop but not much works including networking. Most anything I try yields an explorer  error message that the file or resource cannot be found, etc.  Curiously I can open any PDF file with Acrobat and I can even browse and load  other PDF files on the hard disk from within acrobat. I ran boot log and in fact most of the the drivers other than sysroot... did not load.

 

I tried all of the repair options provided by HP and microsoft without success.  So I decided to restore using a set of disks I dutifully prepared when I recently moved my system.  Unfortunately the restore from disk option cannot find the boot file on disk #1.  When I put the disk in another machine I see a normal set of foders including one named "Boot"??

I REALLY want to get my system back to what I had when I exeuted  the restore to restore point!

Here are few things I would have tried before running recovery.

1. Create a new user account and try loggin in from that and check if issue reoccurs. As per my view I guess the issue is while setting up user account.

2. Try system restore instead of Recovery.

3. Try other ways of Recovery.

Wish you luck,
