    It would have been better to explain what you have actually done in diskpart (not disk part). How was the partition structure and disk type before you did the diskpart commands would have been a better information.

    The easiest way to sort things back to default is to wipe the disk and opt for a clean install. But before doing that, wait and see how the troubleshooting goes.

    diskpart command line is not for them who dont know it .... there are GUI alternatives to it. Better you use PW Bootable CD next time you feel any need to change the partition structure.

    It's been a while since I did an upgrade, but Win10 requires more than 100 mb for the bootmgr files
    Please look in your Recovery volume and post the contents.

    Here's what is in my System Reserve volume - I increased it to 500 mb before upgrading, but I think the upgrade creates a new volume if the size is insufficient. It's easier to shrink C and create a new volume than to move the volumes to the right just to expand the System Reserve volume.


    If your Recovery volume has the same files, you could try setting that as the active volume and remove the active flag from System Reserve. Then restart - if it boots, you're golden. If not, boot from the install media and make System Reserve active - remove the flag from Recovery

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for your help / replies.

    I ended up just reformatting the drive. I had a Microsoft certified guy looking at it and said it's a much bigger problem that we think.
    He instructed just to backup and reformat.

    Thanks again for taking your time to help.
