(press enter)

bootsect /nt60 all /mbr

(press enter)


Worth a go. Sometimes the commands do the job when startup repair can't figure out what to do.
It says failure when attempting to copy boot files. I really messed up my computer this time...

It isn't looking good.

Reinstall is on the cards.

Does Paragon work with USB's?

Download the Rescue Kit ISO, rightclick to Burn with WIndows Image Burner to blank CD.

Boot the CD: How to Boot A Computer from CD or DVD - YouTube

Choose File Transfer Wizard, browse to the files which need rescue. Copy the files and then browse to paste them into the rescue external HD, flash stick or CD/DVD you've inserted. You can test how drag and drop works with a single file first.
