Operating system missing

I was uninstalling some things I didnt use on my computer and when it restarted it said that there was no os avaiable to boot to. I rebooted into f11, f10, f9, ever f- I could but couldnt move my cursor once I was in and had to exit. I ran all the self tests and it passes all of them. I bought it from a friend about six months ago. It came with windows 7 but i put windows 10 on it. I tried to restore and that didnt work either. I cant use a recovery disk because i have no disk drive. I tried to dl a new os but am having trouble getting it from my android to a broken computer. I'm trying to figure out a way to put it on a flash drive and maybe boot up with the flash drive because I have a flash drive of Kali Linux and it boots up fine with the computer. But I don't want to do that every time I want windows as my main OS. It be great if somebody could put me in the right direction because I feel like I've tried everything except the obvious. Thank you

Hi:

 

You are going to have to download the W10 ISO file from another Windows PC using the Media Creation Tool below.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

 

Then you need to use the ISO to DVD/USB tool to transfer the file to a USB flash drive.

 

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/windows-usb-dvd-download-tool

 

The tool will make the flash drive bootable.

Hi,


If you've successfully upgraded and activated Windows 10 previously,

You can repair install Windows 10 Home using Microsoft windows media creation tool by creating bootable installation USB:

Else if you desire, you can clean install using this tutorial:

Plug in USB

Tap f9 key as soon as you power on laptop, change boot order to USB. Boot from it.
