    There was a typo in the second image for the EFI command:
    fixoot was typed instead of fixboot

    sorry it was my typo in the earlier post and should have been:
    fixboot

    1) open command prompt
    2) diskpart
    3) list disk
    4) select disk 0
    5) list volume
    6) select volume 2
    7) assign letter=U:
    8) exit
    9) cd /d U:\efi\microsoft\boot
    10) bootrec /fixboot
    11) ren bcd bcd.old
    12) bcdboot c:\windows /L en-us /s U:all
    13) reboot
    14) diskpart
    15) list disk
    16) list volume
    17) select volume 2
    18) remove letter=U:
    19) exit
    20) reboot
    Please use a camera to take pictures and post images into the thread for the commands and results.

    I got as far as step 13 and... it booted to desktop! I assume I should go on and enter the remaining commands into administrative command prompt?

    Great.
    Consider the repair fragile.
    1) Backup all files to another drive or to the cloud
    2) Make a backup image using Macrium:
    Macrium Software | Macrium Reflect Free
    3) Make a brand new restore point

    4) Open administrative command prompt and type or copy and paste:
    5) sfc /scannow
    6) dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth
    7) dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    8) chkdsk /scan
    9) When these have completed > right click on the top bar or title bar of the administrative command prompt box > left click on edit then select all > right click on the top bar again > left click on edit then copy > paste into the thread

    All right, I'm updating my back-ups, which may take a while. Should I still go in and remove the U: assignation?

    That can be done later.
    After the above steps check the drive:
    Run HD Tune: http://www.hdtune.com/
    Post images into the thread for the test results on these tabs:
    a) Health (SMART)
    b) Benchmark
    c) Full error scan

    Overnight run this command using administrative command prompt:
    chkdsk /x /f /r C:
    Use the information in this link to find the chkdsk report in the event viewer. Copy and paste > notepad > post an image into the thread.

    Is it possible to create a Macrium backup image without including all my personal files (backed up elsewhere)? I have a 500 gig external drive I can use for the image, but with all my files my system is rather larger than that.

    Yes that will work.
    One layer or backup is fine.
    Two is even better.

    Is there a way to do this? My personal files are on C:, and I don't see an obvious way to disentangle those from the system files I want to image with Macrium Reflect.

    To backup individual files you can copy and paste the Users folder.
    That is one layer of backup.
    The second layer of backup is an image or a clone.
    There are two versions of Macrium.
    The free edition has limited features.
    What you are looking for may be available in the paid edition.
    See this link: Backup and Restore with Macrium Reflect Windows 10 Tutorials
    For Macrium Dalchina is an expert and he may be able to make more comments.
