Windows 10: Laptop doesn't boot because OS is on D: drive instead of C: drive
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.
Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way
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.
Hi guys, I recently bought a MSI laptop, and decided to update the BIOS.
However after the update my laptop just doesn't boot anything, no USB, no hard drive, nothing.
Can anyone help me out?
I already enabled/disabled secure boot, used UEFI...
Please, help. My laptop suddenly crashed and now it says "Boot media missing" when I restarted. After that, it always takes me to "Preparing Automatic Repair" and then the 'Troubleshoot' menu.
In the 'Troubleshoot' menu, it has two options:...
I have win 10 10242 preview on a computer that has Vista on it. I installed win 10 to the second drive so Vista is on one drive and Win 10 is on the other. The dual boot works fine as menu comes up where I select which OS I want to boot from. ...
Running upgraded Win 10 Pro X64. Tried to create a recovery drive but it doesn't work.
Ran DISM and SFC yesterday and both ran clean. I'll try them again now and see what happens.
