unless you have the required program - a USB or DVD that has a Windows 10 ISO on it...
USB would be best.

you can download it - but you have already said you can not do that....
since you have to be able to Download it to your computer, then use Rufus to burn to the USB, once then you boot to the USB by using the F12 key to access the USB... and do a clean install. or use a Win10XPE to access the rec media

Well I could definitely get the xpe to get as many photos off it as I can before doing a clean install. Is the usb available to buy preinstalled with the programs?

the xpe is the same as the Windows install.iso which you do not have - and apparently you can not make.

careful you messed up once doing that .... do not try to boot from another System or HDD, If you DL an Win10XPE, burn to a USB then use that to boot to your (messed up) computer you should be able to copy/paste all you want from the old HDD, to a different place and save it,
then insert an proper USB with new Windows 10 ISO and do a clean install, therefore fixing your computer....
