Windows 10 wont boot after deleting windows.old

  MustafaDiaa 14:50 02 Apr 2017

While I was cleaning my PC using CCleaner, I decided to delete windows.old folder. After cleaning process finished, programs never launch when I open it. I restarted the windows but it won't boot and give STOP CODE error.

Here is my Laptop Specification:

Model: Lenovo z570

CPU: intel i7-2670qm

GPU: NVIDIA Geforce gt 540m


OS: Dual boot Ubuntu(main boot loader) & Windows 10

And here is the solutions I tried and none of them worked:

1- Startup Repair (took about 30-45 min and gives error)

2- Reset This PC (exit at 36% with "Undoing Changes" message)

3- Using Command Prompt

chkdsk c: /r /x & sfc /scannow

bootrec /fixmbr , bootrec /fixboot , bootrec /scanos , bootrec /rebuildbcd and it outputs: "Total identified windows installation: 0"

How to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance.

The best thing to do may be a clean install of Windows 10 from the recovery drive and then reinstall Ubuntu.
