    Windows boots in a REALLY weird way after installing Hackintosh.


    Hello fellow users.
    I installed Hackintosh in my HDD, after booting and installing it via a bootable USB, and afterwards I replaced the EFI folder from the HDD installation, from the one contained in the bootable USB.This way Hackintosh showed up in F11 Boot Menu, and I can boot to it without a USB, however that broke the "Windows Boot Manager M.2" option from booting into windows (that's where my W10 Installation is, it's broken, and when I select it, it brings me back to F11 Boot Menu.(Keep in mind that High Sierrra is installed in my HDD) So there's an option "Windows Boot Manager (HDD Model)" Which if selected , W10 Boots!
    This is really weird, I have tried some bootrec commands from a bootable windows 10 usb and startup repair and system restore none of which fixed the M.2 option to boot into windows...Is there a way to fix this besides formatting my W10 Installation?
    Thank you for answering even if these forums do not officially support hackintoshes.

    Have you tried looking through the TonyMacx86 forums? I would try there before breaking your Mac OS install on your PC.

    I made a thread there and I was given a guide that reinstalls windows/OS X...which is not really what I'm trying to accomplish...Could you please help me perform what Samuria mentioned?
    Greatly appreciated

    Both Windows Boot Managers point to the HDD and not the SSD, like shown in the images

    Aditionally, when I press the "edit" icon, both Browse & Edit buttons are greyed out, as shown.
