I was upgrading from Windows 7 , and the download circle thing got stuck at 49% for a good 50 min or so so I decided I reboot and start it over. It the. Attempt to reinstalled failed and then attempted to reload Windows 7 and failed.

I wouldn't go as far as saying it bricked or completely damage your hardware..... Have you tried doing clean "fresh" installation of either windows 10 or windows 7?

I don't have the disk/USB drive I upgraded from mictosoft. Com

if you don't have an usb drive get one at least 4gb and create a bootable. My recommendation is to download as ISO image and use RUFUS to burn to USB drive

I'm pretty sure a fresh install should solve your problem.. :)

use windows 7 recovery mode. if not from the recovery partition (which may have been over written), then from a disc/usb

Fo reelz. This is starting to sound more like don't want to as opposed to can't.
