You can do a Windows 10 Repair Install when it first starts. You do not need media of any kind.

Go to the Media Creation Link

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Click on Upgrade to Windows 10 (even if Windows 10 is running), click on the Download button, select Open (Run) but NOT Save. Allow the program to run. Allow drivers to update. Then select Keep Everything.

Repair Install has become the easiest way to fix many problems.

Since you can't boot properly, you need the media creation link from John posted earlier, EXCEPT find the option to make it offline (full download to ISO or USB). If it's USB boot with that on this PC (since you did the download on a working PC obviously), if it's ISO, you need to burn it properly (burn as image, not data), and insert the DVD into your own computer. Then the startup repair should fix this problem.

You can make the ISO from the link I left you. We did not have that screen shot earlier.
