can't boot or recover files


New Member
The problem started when I was getting the BSOD. Now I can't even get that; computer only boots into BIOS or into a bootable USB.

When I boot into a bootable USB with SystemRescue (a linux distro) I am able to detect my hard drive (using the command fsarchiver) and to mount it. However, when I mount it the only contents are $Recycle.bin, msdia80.dll, System Volume Information, and Windows10Upgrade.

I was very disappointed I could not see my documents. Any idea what happened to it/ how to recover it? Also, where did my entire Windows installation go? shouldn't I be seeing Program Files too?

Any ideas about tool/diagnostics I could do to boot back into windows, or at least access and recover my files?
