I got the Blue Screen of Death after downloading an update. I've been trying to do a system restore but the C: option is grayed out and says:
You must enable system protection on this drive.
Recently I’ve opened the Command Prompt and it takes me to:
In which I’ve entered
From there I can only select the E: (System) to do the system restore, but it ends in it being unsuccessful, stating:
System Restore failed while restoring the registry from the restore point. An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070002)
I’m not sure where to go from here.
Summary from question:
I tried the “dism.exe...” command ... “Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation.”
Windows is not running which means you cannot do a Repair Install.
So at this point, for a proper repair, back up all your data, favorites and email by starting in Safe Mode or Command to a USB Hard Drive connected to the system and reinstall Windows.
You can get the Windows 10 ISO for making a UBS Install Key from the Microsoft Media Creation Link:
The re-install will correct deficiencies, and update drivers. Then you can install software slowly to make sure everything is running.
