    renamed some folders. oops

    Was determined to update to windows 10 version 1903 from 1809. Supposedly following steps online, I renamed the catroot2 and windowsdownloader folders to try to force the update to occur. In doing so, I can no longer boot the system. Surprised?

    Here's is where the problem stands.

    After windows sends a report, I have the option to try to repair the system. All the repair options listed on the screen, under advanced options as well do not work. Restore, clean image boot, scanning for damaged files etc

    Before sending my pc in, I thought I would come here first.

    I do have another pc that I can use to fix the other pc, If that is even possible.
