Hi Isabella,

There may have been an issue with the Windows 10 installation process and now the system cannot go back to its previous state. Most probably, you are not able to boot normally now, right?
Do you have a Windows 8 installation drive? If you do, boot from it and select the Repair option. This way you may fix some errors without harming any stored information. Please, let me know if there is any progress!

Hope this helps
