    [N0oB] Installed Remix OS in the same partition as Windows 10


    Hey all, I was pretty psyched about trying out the Remix OS. I went on and installed it in another partition but then the OS won't boot and had to use windows 10. The second time, I was so determined about making it work that I went ahead and installed it in the same partition as my Windows is installed . I couldn't boot into Remix OS anyway, so I gave up on it and tried to boot into Windows 10. Turned out, I couldn't boot into Windows too.

    I played around with some settings carelessly in the BIOS and managed to boot into Windows 10 using Legacy boot. Uninstalled Remix OS as well. Now I just want the laptop to boot normally using UEFI. Any help?

    Edit: Error I got while wanting to boot into windows using the UEFI settings.

    @thebrowniris - On your desktop, open a command prompt. Copy this (without the quotes) "bcdedit > bcdedit_data.txt", press enter. Open the text file on your desktop with notepad. Copy all the contents (Ctrl-A, right click, copy) and paste here (right click, paste) in a reply.

    This is the current content of your system Boot Configuration Data used to determine what OS to boot into.

    This will help us to see what the system is trying to do.

    This is what I would do. Make a bootable USB flash drive, CD or DVD of Kyhi's recovery drive:
    Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums

    Boot the computer from it, run Macrium Refelct. Under the restore menu is a fix Windows startup utility. Run that utility. Then try to boot the computer normally and see if that fixes not being able to get into Windows 10 using normal booting.

    If so, then press Win+R keys to bring up run dialog. Run msconfig . Select the boot tab. Delete all the entries that are not the Windows 10 default OS.

    Thank you, Navy... that is precisely what I was going to suggest. I even posted it earlier. That was my intention. You simply got to my post and his response 1 hour before I did and posted what I said. We'll see what happens......

    Thank you for the reply. I'd try this out tonight. (I'm at +5:30) I am sorry for the late reply.

    Edit: The download is gonna take a while, I'd run it up and report ASAIC.

    I tried downloading the file, but I am unable to. I then tried copying the file to my drive and it gives me an error.
