    The procedure I posted above should fix the boot problem unless there's something else is wrong within Windows in Disk 1.
    This time we'll try to make it dual boot
    Boot up as normal then open the admin command prompt then type:
    bcdboot J:\Windows
    This should create a dual boot menu. Reboot and select the first option on dual boot menu, this should boot into Windows in Disk 1.
    Open Disk Management, J: now should become C: on Disk 1.

    Please post back the result.

    I tried what you suggested.
    I am now booting from the "J" drive.
    When I try to boot from the other drive, I get another error.
    See attached for the screen shot of the error and a screen shot of the Disk Management.
    Can I change the bcdboot J:\windows to bcdboot c:\windows so that I can use the other "C" drive which has data on it which I can't access now?

    From Disk Management, you still boot into disk 0, Not from J:
    The error indicates that Winload.efi is missing or corrupted. You can copy the C:\Windows\system32\winload.efi from your current Windows to J: Windows\system32\winload.efi and try booting again.

    Winload.efi


    C:\Windows\system32\winload.efi from your current Windows to J: Windows\system32\winload.efi

    I guess the"C" drive is the old "J" drive and vice versa.

    I want to make sure before I copy the files after doing bcdboot J:\Windows.


    Thanks

    The drive that you boot Windows from is C: drive, copy the Winload.efi from it to the other drive.

    winload.efi


    I tried to copy the WINLOAD.EFI FILE using the Administrator Dos prompt, but got the following error:

    J:\Windows\System32>COPY C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WINLOAD.EFI j:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WINLOAD.EFI
    Overwrite j:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\WINLOAD.EFI? (Yes/No/All): Y
    Access is denied.
    0 file(s) copied.

    I also tried to go to j:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 and delete and rename the WINLOAD.EFI file, but I got the following error:
    You need permission to perform this action
    You require permission from Trustedinstaller to make changes to this file
    Try Again
    I tried again with the same results

    If I run the command:
    bcdboot J:\Windows
    will it put the system back the way it was before (until I get the problem fixed).
    There are programs on the old "C" drive that I need to run and can not access.

    You might consider doing a surface scan using Mini-Tool or similar on the drive giving the error. It's possible you have a bad spot on the disk where the problem file resides.

    winload.efi


    I used Mini-Tool about a month ago with no problems on the disks.
    I ran it again last night still with no problems on the disk.
