You probably overwrote the hidden partition where the restore software was housed when you installed a new version of Windows.

No. If you can get the restore to work it will install the OLD version of Windows.

I suspect you will need to buy a new Retail version of Windows 10.

Good Luck

You said you installed an new version of Windows. Old Windows would be the version that came with the computer.
what does old version of windows mean ?
