    The error simply means that Windows cannot find the System Files used for booting.
    The usual causes are
    • The System files are corrupt.
    • The disk File system has bad configuration.
    • Hardware fault.


    For the disk file system I'll ask someone who has more knowledge about it, if this would be the case.

    First, please try the following:

    • Open an admin command prompt
    • Copy/paste "sfc/scannow" (without quotes) and press enter
    • When it finished reboot your system
    • Open again an admin command prompt
    • Enter sfc/scannow again

    If sfc/scannow does NOT say "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violation", please upload the cbs.log file located at {windows partition}\Windows\Logs\CBS\, if the file is too large try a 3rd party uploader like dropbox, onedrive, google drive, mediafire etc.
    System File Check(SFC a.k.a. Windows Resource Protection) needs to have your system rebooted in order for sfc to try to fix the problems that it finds.
    I'll upload the log

    Please make sure in the BIOS the type is set to UEFI.

    Did you have windows 8 or windows 7 as previous OS?

    Have you made a backup image? So you can easily restore in case nothing helps.

    UEFI makes no difference booting (diagnosing shouldn't make a difference either way should it?)
    I had UEFI and secure boot off with months
    Right now it goes to legacy and cannot find a boot device, so I have to press f12 to give me a boot option for windows boot loader which displays the error

    Windows 8 came on the machine and its gpt, not mbr
    I had not touched partitions previously

    Unfortunately I haven't a backup (I was waiting to buy a bigger drive for my backups)

    Just a side note, I booted the fedora install from a USB and it only showed 1 partition, even though I had just created a 60GB one with easus. It didn't show up in the windows repair media diskpart either (I assume because it is ext3)
    Could easus have messed up? Or not finished?
    Could it have made partitions where I had data? (I have used it several times without issue)

    If you look at my partitions in previous screenshots, should their be active, boot partitions, etc?

    Also due to shrinking the volume; could its address or ID (not sure of the term) have changed?

    X: is the rescue media.
    You cannot run it on C: if you cannot boot.

    Should boot disk be set to yes?
    Attachment 41571

    Should one of its partitions be active?
    Attachment 41572

    I am starting to think I wasn't running the latest version of easus...
    I had only ever used it on mbr drives and I don't think the version I had supported gpt yet

    I don't think easus finished or even did much as I can't see new partitions
    Could it have messed up my boot or the partition table?

    Boot disk should be YES.
    I have all my partitions active, yes make your partitions active so you can use them.

    Could be yes, I don't know the history of changes of the program but if I had to guess there was a bug you confronted.

    So, I read:


    1. Only a Primary partition (formatted) can be marked Active.
    2. Each hard disk should have one Active partition.
    3. The computer will boot from the first Active partition encountered (according to the disk boot order in the BIOS which is often user-changeable).

    Just setting the correct partition as Active will not always make your computer bootable to the desired operating system (OS). Other items must also be in place.

    1. One Primary partition on the first hard disk (first in the BIOS disk boot order) is set as Active.
    2. The Active partition must then have a Boot Sector created by the desired operating system.
    3. This Active partition must also contain the Boot Loader and other Boot Files specific to that OS.
    4. The Boot Loader itself must know the correct physical location (address) of the OS.
    5. Finally, the OS's installed folders and files must be at that correct location on the hard disk.




    So should I really set both? I presume the system partition is where the boot loader is, right?
    Should I just set that one?

    1. Correct
    2. Not correct, each normal partition should be active to be accessible.
    3. The computer will boot from the partition that has boot files and is first in the list of the boot order.

    The system partition is indeed where the boot stuff is.
    With both you mean the boot and the partition active? If so yes.
    Your questions are making me a little confused

    I'm confused too!

    So, by setting both the system (boot) and the primary (OS) partition to be active; that will means the boot disk flag will be set to yes, right?
