    1. Let's confirm you have Win 10 on E (probably).

    Using your Win 10 Boot CD, go to a command prompt and view E:\Windows\SystemApps as I said above (the drive letter may be different when using the CD). Can you see Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy?

    2. You need a bootable USB with Minitool Partition Wizard on it. you may need to use RUFUS to do that.

    Thanks for the reply

    Yes, sorry, I meant E:

    How do I use/get partition manager boot disk and EasyBCD?
    Have you just try to active the E drive ? Under Disk Management go to the E drive and right click on it and select Mark Partition as Active. See if that works

    I had to do a clean reinstall of the windows system using a the windows bootable media USB thing, but it is now fixed.

    Boot the windows install dvd/usb and get to a command prompt and run:
    bcdboot c:\windows - where "c:\windows" specifies the root of Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8/10
    In your case: bcdboot d:\windows.
    This worked for me on a recent SSD upgrade after Ghosting my drive.
