For those who face the same issue (unable to boot windows 10 with “C:\windows\System32\LogFiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt” showing “microsoft\boot\resources\custom\bootres.dll is corrupted“), here’s what I did:

First you need to create a bootable USB flash drive to install Windows 10
Insert the flash drive in your PC and reboot from it
Select Repair your computer
Select Troubleshoot
Choose Command Prompt

Type in the command:
Diskpart

Type in the command:
List disk (you have to note which disk is your boot drive number)

Type in the command:
Sel disk 0 (0 is my boot drive number)

Type in the command:
List vol (you have to note which volume is the EFI partition)

Type in the command:
Sel vol 4 (volume 4 is my EFI partition)

Type in the command:
assign letter=V:

Type in the command:
Exit

Now you can format the EFI partition:
format V: /FS:FAT32

After the format you need to recreate the EFI directory structure

Type in the command:
bcdboot e:\windows /s V: /f UEFI (e is your system partition – you can test this by going to the different drives (i.e. c:/d:/e:/f:… until you get your system drive contents)

Exit the command prompt and reboot the PC
