    Windows 10 Troubleshoot - Advanced Options missing


    I have a problem with a W10 build in that when I boot into Advanced Start-up the some of the options are missing (e.g. Command Prompt).

    This is the history of my build.

    1. Initial install of W7 onto a 3TB hard disk (I subsequently realised I was only seeing 2TB of the drive due to using a MBR (not GPT) disk format.

    2. Upgrade to W10 (I had 'normal' Advanced Start-up options at this point)

    3. Converted my disk from MBR to GPT using this method (Convert Windows 7/8/10 Installation from Legacy to UEFI Without Data Loss (Simpler Method) - YouTube), I shrunk a partition and added an UEFI one at the end of the disk.

    4. My system boots file using UEFI but I now have lost some/most of the Advanced Options.

    My C: drive is partition 2, D: is partition 4. Partition 5 is the new UEFI partition I created.

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    From an elevated command prompt, please run reagentc.exe /info and post the results.

    Also, what files are in partition 5 that you created?

    I temporarily mapped partition 5 to E: to get you this.

    The command reagentc /enable ​from an elevated command prompt maybe all you need to restore the functionality. You also do not have a recovery image configured - see this https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/4...dows-10-a.html
