most likely the sfc offboot command was wrong!! Don't forget the spaces!
Code:
sfc  /SCANNOW  /OFFBOOTDIR=P:\  /OFFWINDIR=Q:\Windows
Do you have system reserverd partition? Replace P with logical driver letter of boot partition.
Replace Q with logical drive letter of OS-partition

Dirve letters as they are in recovery environment!!
most likely
Code:
sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=C:\ /OFFWINDIR=C:\Windows
sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=D:\ /OFFWINDIR=D:\Windows
 
or if having system reserved partition:
sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=D:\ /OFFWINDIR=C:\Windows
sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=C:\ /OFFWINDIR=D:\Windows
try them all, till one succeeds

yes, do you know how to disable auto-reboot from RC? In order I can see the error and other info at BSOD time, googled but not found a way to do it so far

So the bcd store (bootmenu) is still there. I thought you renamed it (not smart as the system was booting)
yes, I tried to rename it, hoping it will try to fix it automatically, OK was kind of silly, anyway restored it afterwards
All my attempts ended up with the same behavior: this f*@$g welcomme screen with empty icon and inability to log in

COPY C:\mybcd.txt Q:\
if Q is drive letter of usb stick
now you ca delete mybcd.txt
DEL C:\mybcd.txt

put usb stick in another machine and post the file
How do you spell Murphy's Law?
- inserted my USB key in a USB slot
- looking for it, tried all letters, not found
- changed slot: not better
- rebooted recovery env. with USB key inserted
- not better

Chkdsk currently running on the different drives...
diskpart
list disk

only one disk?
do the list disk with usb stick attached and detached as well. Wait a minute to let recovery environment see it. Does it see it?
you can also do
list vol
within diskpart

or do
notepad C:\mybcd.txt

now you can make pictures with photo camera as a work around

Did it from X:, after having checked the dive layout once in RC, and got still same error: "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation". Even tried other combinations, but either I have the error without delay if the combination is nonsensical, or after "Start system canning" message & a few secs. in other cases

Chkdsk results:
- for all 4 drives: found no problems
- I just got "Failed to transfer logged errors to the event log with status 50" for each one, but I think it is expected in RC

=> which command gave you "Start system canning" message & a few secs. ?

What is your drive letter of boot partition? and what drive letter is OS partition?

Depends, changes from one boot to installation DVD/RC to another, sometimes it's C:, others D:
But I always check first before any operation

the same as the one for the OS, thus C: or D: depending on RC
