    Can't rebuild bcd or boot into uefi


    I get error code 0xc000000f when i boot into windows from the install disk
    I did a ubuntu install that went bad now when i try to boot up windows it goes to the grub command line. so far i tried these
    bootrec /fixboot (doesnt fail)
    bootrec /fixmbr (doesnt fail)
    bootrec /rebuildbcd (fails)
    and when i try to do a system restore or refresh or install it fails
    it wont let me boot into uefi from the install usb only mbr
    i also tried a couple bcd edit commands

    I would boot the computer from a rescue drive/disk like Kyhi's:

    Use Macrium Reflect to make a backup image of the partition Windows is installed to. Use MiniTool Partition Wizard to wipe the hard drive and re-initialize it as GPT. Do a clean install of Windows 10 using the Windows 10 installation media. Then restore the image you made back to the OS partition.

    You can boot from a Windows 10 installation drive, open a command prompt prompt, change to the boot folder on the installation drive and try the bootsect command.

    From the recovery console you can type bcdboot C:\Windows that should override the boot sector.
