    I'm trying to repair a Windows 10 Installation that will boot to safe mode but not normally. Is there some sort of break down somewhere where every windows folder is explained? Like SoftwareDistribution folder is for Windows update, WinSxS is used to store differential software updates to the os from the time the OS was first installed and after it was updated, so it's a mix of old and new files. Etc.

    Post Screenshots of the errors and related!

    Without true info, it's quite difficult (if its possible at all) to help.
