    Default Windows 10 PC major corruption & multiple problems

    Windows 10 crashes on startup.

    1. From an installation disk, I have tried automatic startup repair which did nothing.
    2. Sfc /scannow from an admin command prompt returns windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation.
    3. Chkdsk does nothing.
    4. The Restore point thing failed.
    5. I decided to give in and reset the PC keeping files, but that failed. Stating "the drive windows is installed in is locked".

    Doing a "list volume" on diskpart in cmd only lists volume 0, with the letter F. No C drive anywhere. Listing disk partitions returned nothing as well.

    I am quickly running out of options and sanity, and don't know who or where to ask. Please help.

    You seem to have tried it all. Disconnect your peripherals, disable your security software if you can and Run DISM and see if that helps: Run DISM to repair Windows System Image in Windows 10

    Repair MBR and see.

    Also see: The drive where Windows is installed is locked Windows 10

    Else a repair or a reinstall using an installation media seems to be the only option.
