    Go to Start/Search and type diskmgmt.msc, Right click the diskmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Disk Management window, in the lower pane, you will see all of your Partitions (Volumes) When Windows installs, it creates a Hidden System Reserved Partition without a drive letter. This partition has all of the Boot info on it. If you delete this partition, the computer will not boot properly

    I wouldn't have called it "change" but a "removal of such partition" but then apparently, not intending to, I must have changed something that Windows 10 didn't like. Why it worked flawlessly for a couple weeks or so has got not only be baffled. Do you think something else could have caused that?

    Spunk, here's a screen shot. I had removed the Data F: previously then suddenly the machine would not boot. I cloned it again from my older hard drive and of course, the partition is there again. I dare not remove it again unless I have a real boring day and I want grief.

    Here's an unfortunate case where a thread just goes totally dead for no reason. One earlier posting has been removed and not one soul can come back and give a simple reply to a question in my judgment, should not be that difficult for the techs on this forum.
    How is one supposed to have a problem resolved then marked solved when not even a moderator can come in and give a bit of help???
