So I was running windows update and pressed update for the large win10 update/upgrade that was released a while ago that required multiple gb of memory to do.

When I pressed restart now I got a write memory error for skype.exe so instead of going through the update process it just skipped it and when I try to start it now I get disk read error press any key to continue. The memory error is weird since I've had since a previous computer and this is a brand new one that also has this error.. I did use migration software from an SSD for the old computer to my new one but I've since formatted the new drive due to it not recognising my windows license key and tech support said I needed to install win 8 and upgrade again for it to work which I did.

It's a brand new SSD so it should not be a hardware failure I think.
What I've done so far is run my windows 10 disk and automatic fix or recovery didn't work. Trying to reset the pc it said that "the drive where windows is installed is locked unlock the drive". Next I tried running diskpart through command line it identifies the SSD fine (works in bios too). The SSD or volume is not set to read only according to diskpart though..

After that I tried running these commands:
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec.exe /fixboot
bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd
but the last command didn't work and it said "The requested system device cannot be found.".

So I have 2 requests.
1. Is there a way I can solve this issue without reformatting the SSD and going through a reinstall? I also have another SSD with windows installed that I could use temporarily if that's of any use.
2. I'd like to identify/fix the memory write error I get when I sometimes shut down / restart the computer so this doesn't happen again.

Grateful for any help and I hope I posted this in right section.
