    zbook, before I commenced this perilous journey I did images to Reflect and Acronis True Image (which was the cause of all this as the restore failed), of my C;\, E:\, and F:\ partitions and I haven't been able to use the system since but I will do so again as you suggest, and also use HDTune.

    Just about to start the bootrec stuff!

    Thanks!

    Problem!
    I had got as far as assign letter=b
    list volume
    exit - takes me out of Command prompt back to the blue 'Choose an option' screen!

    Surely I need to stay in command prompt?

    OK, I continued on the basis that assign letter=b would be remembered so went back into Command Prompt and continued but came up with the same 'file not found bcd\boot!

    The master boot record and boot partition got fixed.
    Rebuilding the BCD did not work as it could not find the path.
    Let's see what happens with the registry repair.
    If that does not fix it use these commands to delete and rename the BCD:

    Open diskpart > make sure the EFI partition is labeled
    assign letter=b:


    cd /d b:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\
    bootrec /fixboot
    ren BCD BCD.bak
    bcdboot c:\Windows /L en-us /s b: /f ALL
    reboot

    Ah, some progress!

    Assuming it is OK to go for the delete/rename route could you please remind me of the commands needed to get me to the EFI partition to check if it says assign letter=b? Just in case I stray from the correct path!

    Thank you. I will respond shortly.

    In the image (post #23) that you posted volume 5 already is labeled B.
    So unless you rebooted or used the remove command you should be ready to enter the commands.

    What happened with the registry repair/backup in post #18

    Post 18, I haven't tried that yet I think I considered it to be a bit more tricky so decided to carry on the current route so I can still go that way if necessary

    Okay.
    Let's see what happens after rebuilding the BCD store using the commands in post #24.

    Please post images before rebooting.

    I'm sorry, but I think I may have rebooted as I can't get to the EFI partition and I'm getting a bit 'lost'.

    Please make sure that you take pictures using a camera or smart phone camera and post images into the thread before exiting (step #12).

    1) Open command prompt > Administrator X:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe > X:Sources> type:
    2) diskpart
    3) list disk
    4) list volume
    (look for the EFI volume and identify the #)(The EFI partition should be the volume that displays FAT32 and hidden)
    5) select volume W (for W enter the volume number of the EFI partition)
    6) detail volume
    7) assign letter=b
    (should see diskpart successfully assigned the drive letter or mount point.
    8) list volume
    (confirm that the volume is properly labeled with the letter B)
    9) exit
    (this should exit diskpart and open X:Sources>
    10) cd /d b:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\
    (It should display: b:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot>)
    11) bootrec /fixboot
    (It should display: The operation completed successfully.)
    ren BCD BCD.bak
    (It should display: b:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot>
    12) bcdboot c:\Windows /L en-us /s b: /f ALL
    (It should display: Boot files successfully created.)
    13) exit
    14) For choose an option click Turn off your PC)
    15) Power on to check the boot.

    Please make sure that you take pictures using a camera or smart phone camera and post images into the thread before exiting (step#12).
