    Disk 1 is the one you want to keep. You will need to make the C: partition... Active.

    Just right click the C: partition and choose: "Mark As Active".

    Might have to use Diskpart to do that. I'm not sure. I don't really ever use Diskpart.

    Your Windows system is using GPT disk, You cannot mark it as Active.
    When you use Macrium to fix the Windows boot problem. It created a dual boot entry since you have 2 disks (disk 0 and disk 1) containing EFI System partitions.

    Boot up as normal then:
    Win+R then type msconfig
    click on boot tab. There will be 2 entries, Keep the Default OS then delete the other.
    Reboot

    His system is not the same as yours. You are using MBR disk, not GPT disk.

    Thx. I do things a bit differently... like I have Win 10 on an MBR partition. As you can probably tell, I'm NOT a big fan of quite a few of MS's "improvements".

    Isn't that Macrium bootable media, fantastic?

    Great, tks Topgun.
    So the other boot option is the windows install I lost a month ago and if I had of just use macrium then and fixed the boot option I would have survived my last crash?
