Try this: Hold down the power button to turn the laptop off (if it isn't already)
Press the power button again and immediately begin pressing the Esc key about once per second.
You should get a startup menu. One of the options will be to press F11 for Recovery.
Given the error message you are receiving I'm not positive this will work but we won't know for

Thank you. Let me know when it finishes please.

Here are some examples:
If you have a computer with an internet connection and a flash drive you can
create a Windows 10 installation flash drive and boot from that using the Media Creation Tool here:
