Solved How can I boot my windows 10 installation usb?

Specs: PC
I am using a Toshiba satellite c55-a computer and I am running on a 64 bit. My computer is Windows 10. However I originally had Windows 8 but then I did the free upgrade. Anyway my profile in regedit got deleted which deleted many files that Windows needs to run. I have a Windows 8.1 recovery drive which I have tried to use the refresh option on my computer setting but it does not work. I have done some research into this and that it is because when you upgrade from Windows 8 to 10 your computer does not properly store the install.wim file. I have tried putting the file where it needs to be but my cmd in recovery environment does not recognize the reagentc command which as far as I know is the only way to properly place the install.wim. I have recently been told that if I create a bootable Windows 10 flash drive that I can run repair and it will fix my registry problem. So I used rufus to create a bootable Windows 10 usb and the computer recognizes the usb but it will not boot it. Please help.

All Rufus does is make the USB device bootable, it does not put any Windows system files on the drive. So where did you get the Windows 10 system files or bootable ISO file and how did you install them on the drive?

I got the Iso file from Microsoft and used Rufus to upload the file to it
