    Restore boot

    I am using a dual boot system (Windows 10 Pro and FreeBSD).
    I used to boot Windows 10 or BSD through BSD's boot manager.
    I needed to reinstall Windows 10, so my boot has been overwritten.
    I tried to restore it, and then I ran into problems..
    I am not able to boot anything.. I get "Missing boot loader" error.
    Anyway, I can mount both filesystem with a Linux live cd.
    I tried restore with those command from a Windows 10 DVD (repair options -> prompt)

    bootrec /fixmbr (no error)
    bootrec /fixboot (no error)
    bootrec /rebuildbcd ..

    It prompts me for adding "Windows 10" (I chose YES) and "Windows.old" (I chose YES, but at this point I get error "The requested system device cannot be found"

    Any suggestions?
    Thank you very much!

    Windows.old would be the old files from a previous version of Windows prior to an update. What happens if you say NO to that prompt?
