Windows 10: Boot Trouble, system partitions and UEFI Solved

    Boot Trouble, system partitions and UEFI


    Hi,

    So I thought I'd sling a new disk in my system. And then the OS wasn't seeing it so instead of looking in disk manager I just swapped the cables for my D: drive and powered on. The boot config was missing and Win 10 wouldn't boot. Somehow my D: drive had been set as a system drive. So I put back the cable from the new drive in the old D: drive. Still got the error that the boot config was missing or corrupted and so I booted up to system install/repair and followed this guys instructions on You Tube.

    So now I've got a system that doesn't boot unless the win 10 installation USB stick is in the system. It won't even boot to the install anymore. Here's a picture of what's going on in disk manager

    I've had a look at a few threads on the matter that Google threw up from the Win 7 forums but they're not very helpful for various reasons. Does anybody out there know how to go about untangling this mess so that my system will boot up from my C: drive without the USB stick. Thanks.

    unplug all HDD's except the windows OS Disk 0

    leave the USB in the drive to boot up back into windows..

    once windows is loaded - remove the USB

    Open Command Prompt (Admin) and type >

    bcdboot C:\Windows /s C: /f BIOS

    reboot and windows should boot up on is own - without any other drive connected
