After removing dual boot, Windows 10 didn’t boot. It shows me only a black screen and cursor after Windows logo. How do I fix it?

Problem :

I had Windows 11 as bootable next to Windows 10 but when I removed the 11’s partition and rebuilt BCD and MBR for 10’s partition, It didn’t boot. It shows me only a black screen and cursor after Windows logo. How do I fix it?

Tried “sfc /scannow /offbootdir:c: /offwindir:c:windows” via USB recovery Windows ISO, yet It returns this:

Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation

Tried bootrec /fixboot yet it returns this:

Access is denied

DISM didn’t work either, and I don’t remember the syntax I used but It returns error 87.
Tried auto fix of the recovery environment, It didn’t work either.
Note: I have only one partition: C: not using System Reserved.
Note2: CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn’t work either on the black screen.
Note3: At first Windows 10 was installed to the end of disk and When I removed Windows 11 in the beginning of the disk I tried to copy Windows 10 to the beginning of the disk using Gparted as I didn’t want it to stay to the very end of the disk after my Linux partition but still the partition moved completely with no problem. (just to make sure this didn’t make a problem itself.)

Solution :

Try Ctrl+Shift+Esc to sermon the task manager and browse to activate the windows explorer.
