However, if none of the above method works, it could be due to corrupted system files. In such cases, you can run a Clean install which can be run without a compatible installation media (USB/DVD) and can be done straight from the GUI menu of your Windows 10 system. However, make sure that you create a backup of your system data. But since, you are unable to boot into Windows due to the BSoD error, you can follow this process to backup data without booting into Windows 10.
Alternatively, you can run a Repair install which will help you to refresh your Windows files without the need to backup your data. However, for this, you would need a bootable media for Windows 10. Here’s how to create a bootable USB or media for repair install.
