    Can't boot into Windows 10 EFI


    I recently cloned Windows 10 onto a new SSD along with Two Windows 7 partitions.
    The two Windows 7 partitions are booting fine.
    When I boot into Windows 10 a black screen comes up with a rotating circle and it never stops.
    I don't think my boot records are correct.
    The drive is GPT.
    While running in Windows 7, This is what I get from bcdedit

    I have tried using Macrium boot fixer. It didn't fix it.
    I have tried using LazesoftRecoverySuite It didn't fix it.

    I'm not positive but I think I'm running Windows 10 21h2
    Could someone please help me fix it?

    From Win 7 run MSConfig. What do you have on the Boot tab?

    Hello @Docfxit,

    As mentioned above, type msconfig in the search box, press Enter, and select the Boot tab. You will get something similar to . . .

    Yes. The BIOS is set for UEFI.

    This is the first time I have seen anything in the boot tab. Before this it had been empty. I tried changing the timeout. It can't find the file. I think it's access denied.

    Did the source drive also had the two Win 7 and Win 10?
    Was Win 10 working on the source drive?
    Do you have a Win 10 USB installation boot able drive?

    I had two different source drives.
    One had Windows 7 in one partition
    The same drive had a second Windows 7 partition for testing.
    The second drive had Windows 10 on it.
    Recently I tried removing the current SSD with all three partitions and installing the original Windows 10.
    I couldn't get it to boot. I did try to repair the boot process because I think originally they were all booting from the drive that had the two partitions of Windows 7.
    I do have a Windows 10 installed on a USB drive.

    Let's rebuilt the boot manager for Win 10
    - Boot from the Win 7, open MSConfig and delete the Win 10 entry.
    - Boot from the Win 10 installation drive as UEFI
    - At the Windows Setup screen, press Shift+F10 simultaneously to open a command line prompt.
    Type:
    Diskpart
    list vol (take note of the Win 10 partition letter)
    exit (to exit diskpart)
    bcdboot X:\Windows /d /addlast (replace X with the Win 10 letter assigned to the Win 10 partition.

    In Msconfig I deleted the Windows 10.
    After I clicked apply I got this screen:

    I didn't know if it was ok to continue. So I didn't

    I was able to remove the entry:
    Windows 10
    In Windows 7 with a program called Dual-boot Repair 10.
    I booted with my USB Windows 10
    I verified in msconfig, Boot that Windows 10 was not there.
    I found the drive letter for the Windows 10 partition was D
    I opened a command window running as administrator.
    I entered:
    bcdboot D:\Windows /d /addlast
    It added it successfully.
    I verified with msconfig, boot that Windows 10 was there.
    I did a shutdown.
    I removed the USB drive.
    I booted. Windows 10 didn't show in the boot menu. The other two Windows 7 did.
    After booting into Windows 7 I tried EasyBCD.
    The last time I tried it no entries showed. There is a warning with EasyBCD that it might not work with UEFI.
    This time it did show the two Windows 7 entries.
    I verified windows 10 was on the D drive.
    I added Windows 10 in EasyBCD on the D drive.
    It said it took it.
    I rebooted, It wasn't on the Boot menu.
    I booted into Windows 7 and started EasyBCD.
    Windows 10 was there with no drive. It seems like EasyBCD is a little flaky.
    I added the D drive to the entry.
    I rebooted. Windows 10 was now on the boot menu.
    I selected it.
    It now comes up with a black screen with a rotating circle of dots. Just like before.

    This script was created for Windows 10 and works on windows 11.

    It was not tested on Windows 7.

    See if it works on Windows 7 and if it works please post a share link into this thread using one drive, drop box, or google drive.

    If it fails to run on Windows 7 then manual commands can be posted.
