Win 10 will not Boot after update

Win 10 will not boot after update says it cannot find boot disk

I booted a Win 10 Pro install disk and tried to run system restore, i.e. rstrui.  Says no restore point found, I know that is not true I just manually set one yesterday.  I assumed it was looking for it in the wrong place so I change to the correct drive and Windows\system32.  Now when I enter rstrui nothing at all happens.

Any suggestions?

I've tried to repair Windows 10 from the CD says it cannot fix it
I've run sfc /scannow - no errors

Any other tried and true methods other than reinstalling Windows

If it absolutely will not start (sounds like it), then you need to recover what you can from the drive, and reinstall Windows.

take a look at this

Before I started messing with registry keys I wanted to know if there were any packages that could be removed.  In my case the windows drive is now "D" so when I ran dism /image:D:\ /get-packages to see if there were I get

Error 1639
The command line is missing a required servicing command
it goes on to say I need to specify the complete path to the offline windows image

I tried d:\Windows and d:\windows\sytem32, but neither worked

What is the path that it wants, any idea?

It (DISM) appears to missing a package it needs.

I normally use the form dism.exe /online /cleanup-image  /restorehealth

I do not use the format you have used.

Am I right in my understanding is you use /online when you are dealing with a windows system that is running?

If true will is work on one where I am accessing it via a USB drive?

1. Yes - that is where I use it.

2. The only other form I have tried to use  is:

DISM.exe /Mount-Wim /WimFile:C:\test\images\myimage.wim /index:1  /MountDir:C:\test\offline

Thanks for the update.  I know reinstalling Windows is a pain, but your system is working now and that is good news.
