ID:	125591Hello. Can somebody explain me what EFI System Partition is doing? Should i remove it? I've tryied already to install win10 from USB multiple times. After installation, pc restarts and starts to display UNACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE, or , if i insert USB again and click Search problems, it points to C:\Windows\System32\logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt . It appears that after installation it "loses" path to disk(which exist and isn't damaged). I can provide more info. Thx for help...

    Welcome to the forum. The best option is to delete all the partitions don't create any then boot the install and let it create what it needs

    EFI partition should be formatted Fat32
    It contains the BCD Boot Files used to boot The Windows OS

    If you want to keep Fedora you could copy the ESP contents somewhere, reformat it FAT32 and then copy back the contents.

    If the ESP is FAT32 windows installer will use it.

    You might have to update /etc/fstab in Fedora if you have defined ESP using UUID.
