Just a guess on my part. I haven't updated my laptop to run it and turned off auto updates so it won't get installed. Sorry, I'm not technical enough to help you out here, hopefully someone can. But I'm guessing you're going to have to spend the money to get it fixed.

TL;DR: Have you tried running the SFC, DISM, MBR, and BCD tools in the command prompt?

3] Click on the Command Prompt button to open a CMD window. Type sfc /scannow and hit Enter to run the System File Checker.

3] Again open the Command Prompt, type Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and hit Enter to Run the DISM tool that will help repair the Windows image.

4] Once again use the Command Prompt to rebuild your MBR, using the built-in bootrec tool. MBR or Master Boot Record is the data that is present in the first sector of any hard disk. It tells where the operating system is located so that it can be loaded.

5] BCD or Boot Configuration Data is a firmware-independent database file which has boot-time configuration data. It is required by Windows Boot Manager and replaces the boot.ini that was used by NTLDR earlier. In the case of boot problems, you may be required to rebuild this file.

To rebuild the BCD file, in the Command Prompt, type the following command and hit Enter:

bootrec /rebuildbcd

After I hit enter on 3, it says "DISM does not support servicing Windows PE with the /online option"

Did it come with a Windows disc? I'm not very familiar with Win10, but earlier versions usually had an option to repair Windows using the disc.

It has that option but no I don't think it came with one

Maybe you could go out and get one? I'd double check the idea before putting down money, but maybe a friend has a copy. I guess it depends on how important the data is. If you've got another computer, I'd try moving the hard drive over to it and accessing it as a secondary disk. I'm not familiar with recent versions of Windows, so I'm not sure whether you'd encounter problems doing this.
