    Hi, your description and diagram seem to be the opposite of one another.

    If you wish to move partitions around as you describe, you will need a 3rd party partition manager such as one of these:

    Moving a partition using Mini tool Partition Wizard free, see How to Move/Resize Partition | MiniTool Partition Wizard Tutorial . Your unallocated space will then be to the right of C:. I would create an image first just as a backup insurance.

    You can move EFI partition after you remove 'boot' flag from it.

    1. Boot from GParted Live CD and remove 'boot' flag from EFI partition. If there is also one 128MB partition with 'msftres' flag, don't remove flag from it.
    2. Boot from MiniTool Partition Wizard Bootable and move EFI partition to disk end.
    3. Move Windows partition just right before previously moved EFI partition.
    4. Copy EFI partition to disk begin, then delete old one.
    5. Move back Windows partition just right after EFI partition.
    6. Boot again back to GParted Live CD and add 'boot' flag to EFI partition.
    7. Boot from Windows 10 installation USB drive and repair your OS following this guide - Fixing a Corrupted UEFI Partition in Windows 8 or 8.1

    This tutorial is old one I created in another forum back in 2015 when I moved my Windows 8.1 EFI partition. OS repair guide is pretty old, but there should not be any differences between Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 on that point.
