    I appreciate it.

    And I am sure Tekkie Boy appreciates the second pair of eyes also.
    You are VERY welcome.

    I think he is probably trying to figure out the least risky way for me to rebuild the boot store next.
    We will see.

    He has been very helpful, and I really appreciate him helping me.
    You are in good hands.

    I need a screenshot of the disk management.

    Please maximize the window so that I have all partitions in detail on the screenshot.

    And then run the following command in the command prompt as administrator:
    dir /a /s c:\boot > "%userprofile%\desktop\dir.txt"

    And share the dir.txt also please.

    Thanks.

    Is it okay for you if I come back to you tomorrow?

    It's pretty late for me now and I have to get up early.

    You can delete all the text files you have created on the desktop.

    We don't need them anymore.

    Hello again,

    Before we try to fix the BCD problem, two questions:

    Do you have a smartphone that you can upload a photo in an emergency if something does not work or is unclear?

    Do you have a Windows 10 installation medium USB stick / DVD from which you can boot?

    Hello again,

    Do you have a Windows 10 installation medium USB stick / DVD from which you can boot?
    My apologies, I did not get notification that you had replied today. Just checked the forum and found your message.

    I do have a smartphone that can take and upload a photo.

    I have the original MS Windows 7 DVD.

    I also have a Windows 10 Upgrade DVD-R and I also have it on USB.

    Okay.

    Please do the following.Insert the USB stick with Windows 10 into your computer and boot from it.

    When you see the Setup Wizard window, just press Shift and F10 to open the command prompt.
    See image:
    Need Help - Windows 7 to Windows 10 Upgrade Failures-u6r5bnd.png

    In the command prompt window run the following commands:

    Diskpart

    lis vol

    Please look then which drive letter is assigned to the Windows installation. Ideally, it's letter c.
    According to your screenshot from yesterday, the Windows partition is about 260 GB.

    When you have the letter, run the exit command to quit Diskpart.

    Then execute the following commands one after the other.
    Attention! When the Windows installation has a different drive letter than c: please adapt the following commands to the respective letter!

    attrib -s -h c:\boot\bcd

    del c:\boot\bcd

    bcdboot c:\Windows /L en-US /f Bios

    If you get an error message, you have to take a screenshot and reply to this thread via mobile phone.

    If you do not receive an error message, restart your computer afterwards.

    Thank you for these instructions.

    I am going to screenshot them and print them out.

    Then I will follow them to the letter and report back here as soon as possible.

    I think that the forum applies a follow up post as an update rather than a new post, so that may be why I did not get notification about your post earlier in the day, and so you may not get notification when I post after this because it will appear as a follow up.

    So please check the forum directly, as I have learned today.

    Thank you for all of your help and kindness.
