    A few hours ago, my main PC with 10122 froze - I was using Visual Studio 2015, so no wonder, usual battery out, battery in should do the trick.
    Not in this case.

    Since I pulled the battery, my laptop won't boot into Windows. It goes past the loading screen, I get the initial blackness, then cut, and reboot.

    I've tried startup repair (does not work, as it is from Build 10076), and removing some temp files, whatnot, but it does not work. It can't detect the system restore points I had, and nothing works. Booting into safe mode results the same, disabling "reboot on error" is the same too, and I've ran out of ideas.

    Currently I'm on a TAILS live USB, so even downloading Win10 is out of my options.

    Anyone got any ideas, suggestions?

    Ask someone to download 10125 for you?

    Why is downloading on a live CD out of the question? There is still a HDD in the machine to save the ISO to, and you can still create USB from Live CD

    Apparently you are not familiar with TAILS. It is a security oriented OS, boots only in Live mode, is not persistent, does not allow the browser to access anything but its own data folder (/home/user/Tor Browser), and most importantly, it connects through Tor - meaning incredibly slow downloads.

    Best would be if there was a way to update the recovery partition (my installs are strictly UEFI), without downloading 2+ GBs.

    open a Command Prompt as Administrator

    type: bootrec /fixMBR [enter]
    type: bootrec /fixBoot [enter]
    type: bootrec /rebuildBCD [enter]
    reboot the computer

    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} device partition=C:
