    Problem with win 10 update


    Hi...after installing the latest windows 10 update, i cannot get my pc to boot. Actually, it boots, but only into a recovery environment. It says that it is missing a file, \windows\system32\winload.efi. I am trying to avoid doing a full reset, because I really don't want to lose the hundreds of apps I have installed. Does anyone have any ideas on how I might be able to do this? Thanks in advance!

    Find a camera or smartphone camera to take pictures and post images into the thread.

    Boot the windows 10 iso > open Windows RE command prompt > type these commands (if there are comments they will be in parenthesis)

    bcdedit /enum all
    bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    dism /image:X:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions
    (replace X with the drive letter for the partition)
    (there is a space between \ /)
    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec /fixboot
    bootrec /scanos
    bootrec /rebuildbcd

    Is that going to repartition my c: drive? I was trying to avoid that, if it makes all my apps unusable. Thanks!

    I take it you didn`t create a image of 1909 with Macrium before you tried to update ?
