Disk boot failure
Windows 10 O/S
Attempting to recover files before reinstallation of O/S
I Removed the disk from the failed platform and set it up as an external drive on another platform.
Disk is recognized in Windows Disk Management => Unallocated
Disk is recognized in TestDisk 7.0 =>
Disk \\.\PhysicalDrive2 - 1000 GB / 931 GiB - CHS 121601 255 63, sector size=512

Have you tried to recover the partition itself ? Set the partitions to keep/recover as P(rimary). On next screen, choose Write, confirm, Quit.
After a reboot, run "cmd" (right click run as administrator) and "chkdsk /f d:" (replace d: by the correct drive letter)

I was just scared to do anything that was likely to corrupt the file recovery process. So I am just confirming this.
Thanks again.

Thanks, it worked
But I do have one final question.

As mentioned earlier this was a boot drive in another laptop. The results of the 'Analysis' =>

FAT32 0 32 33 33 69 36 532480 [NO NAME]
FAT32, blocksize=4096, 272 MB / 260 MiB

[ii] HPFS - NTFS 35 79 45 120082 135 53 1928558592
NTFS, blocksize=4096, 987 GB / 919 GiB

[iii] HPFS - NTFS 120082 135 54 120207 118 39 2007040
NTFS, blocksize=4096, 1027 MB / 980 MiB

[iv] HPFS - NTFS 120207 118 40 121600 117 53 22378496
NTFS, blocksize=4096, 11 GB / 10 GiB

This might have reflected the original allocation for a typical HD of this type
System TI1066400J(C) Recovery
1.00 GB NTFS 260 MB 918.82 GB NTFS 933 MB NTFS 10.40 GB NTFS
Healthy (OEM Healthy (EFI System Healthy (Boot, Healthy
Partition) Partition) Page File, Primary Partition) (OEM Partition)

But probably it is =>
272 MB 987 GB 1027 MB 11 GB
? [?] ? ? [ii] ? [iii] ? [iv]
from the recovered data

When I did the recovery I selected the largest partition, i.e. [ii], so the disk is now only a storage device.
Is it possible to restore partitions , [iii] and [iv] to restore the disk to its original state?
Or should it even be considered?
Of course, the partition [?] would be problematic I think!

The reasoning behind this hypothetical proposition is for the avoidance of doing a clean Win10 installation,
even though the Windows folder is there (questionable completeness etc), I am assuming that the registry, sys,
hive etc. and the like would have been lost. To do a clean re-installation of Win10 will also mean a
reinstallation of a whole lot of software which I would rather avoid.

Unless of course there is an alternative route unknown to me - ENLIGHTENMENT sought!
Thanks.

PS: Actual formatted structure of the recovered disk

Recovered(E)
227 MB 919.61 GB NTFS 11.63 GB
Unallocated Healthy Unallocated
(Primary Partition)

Sorry - tabs & multiple spaces are not adequately implemented to display tables ?
