Windows 7: Computer won't boot anymore?

W7 home premium 32bit/W7HP 64bit/w10 tp insider ring

You do not need the sticker COA code to upgrade to W10, even on a clean install.

I suspect that the power disruption damaged the connection between your comp and a device you had connected via USB.
Before you try upgrading/recovery, unplug all external devices and reboot

One final note: Before (re)installing Windows OS, use any of the free backup software programs available on the Web. Make sure the backup creates an IMAGE of disk, not just copy of files. An image will restore the whole system; copying will only save files, but not OS as such.

I have transferred all the files I needed, but when I try to boot from the Windows 7 disk I have it yields the same result as before (the Windows logo appears and then freezes)

I have also booted the Windows 10 iso from a flash drive and attempted to reset my pc, but it gets stuck at 1%

My suggestion now - since you have saved the files you need - is to go back to Linux Live distro and run GParted. This is a program that will show you all the existing partitions, allow you to resize and move the partitions, and create a new layout of your disk(s). Using GParted, you can reformat the disk so that all data are erased and you'll be starting with a "clean slate." Once you have that, try running a clean install of Windows.
