My Axer 3830T laptop downloaded a Windows 10 update, after 30 minutes it auto-booted to a blue screen that reads: "Recovery - your PC/Device needs to be repaired" Error Code 0xc000000f
there are two options, F8 for start up settings and F9 fto use a different operating system
I tried both, but after going through all sub menus and options, I'm back at the beginning;
when choosing the "reset this PC" option, it tells me "The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again."
The free Microsoft Media Creation Tool and Windows 10 ISO/ setup files are therefore useless as long as my drive is locked and the volume write protected!
please I'm grateful for any helpful advice as to how to unlock
