    Thanks.... so are the issues you have found related to this issue, or a seperate issue.

    Should I do all the steps in post 10 first, then do the post 8?

    Thanks guys

    The information in post 10 had some related issues and findings within the logs.
    There is flexibility and the steps can be performed in any order.
    Follow the steps in the earlier thread as outlined by NavyLCDR to fix the boot.
    Please re-post the image of disk management with the characters in the status column in full view.

    Hi again,

    I've not gotten round to doing any of this yet, but just had a look at the bcdboot command & I believe when you noted the "/fw ALL option", yuoi meant /f ALL?

    The MS page states "If you specify the /f option, you must also specify the /s option to identify the volume letter of the system partition".

    I don't follow this as the partition will have no letter?

    Also, Windows is definitely set to Legacy mode (image below) so is changing the system partition to fat32 futile? Or is that just the current mode being used?

    Hi again,

    Wanted to update this as I've made some progress on this today.

    1. I converted Legacy BIOS to UEFI using MBR2GPT, then updated the firmware to UEFI only.
    2. To begin with, Windows failed to boot, but after bootrec commands it booted up fine (1./fixmba 2./fixboot 3./scanos 4./rebuildbcd)

    I havn't yet done all the steps in post 10 as the priority was resolving the boot issues. I'll try to get to them when I can, but am hoping they are noncritical
