    Windows 10 Boot File Structure When the OS is on D:


    This is an ASUS AS BM6820.
    It's somehow stuck in booting and neither normal nor safe modes will get to the login screen.
    I am wondering if the boot files are all OK because:
    In this case the OS drive is D: and there seems to be not much in C: at all.
    Here is the result of "bcdedit":
    Code:
    WIN10
    C:\WINDOWS\system32>bcdedit
    Windows Boot Manager
    --------------------
    identifier {bootmgr}
    device partition=C:
    description Windows Boot Manager
    locale en-US
    inherit {globalsettings}
    default {default}
    resumeobject {589169ed-2348-11e7-9e79-a253cda68567}
    displayorder {default}
    toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}
    timeout 30
    Windows Boot Loader
    -------------------
    identifier {default}
    device partition=D:
    path \WINDOWS\system32\winload.exe
    description Windows 10
    locale en-US
    inherit {bootloadersettings}
    recoverysequence {a6c8a76b-2348-11e7-9e79-a253cda68567}
    displaymessageoverride Recovery
    recoveryenabled Yes
    allowedinmemorysettings 0x15000075
    osdevice partition=D:
    systemroot \WINDOWS
    resumeobject {589169ed-2348-11e7-9e79-a253cda68567}
    nx OptIn
    bootmenupolicy Legacy
    What I wonder is if everything that needs to be in the C: drive is actually there? When I look, even with system files visible, I don't see much except C:\TEMP. Is that normal?

    What should one see in the C: drive if the D: drive is the OS drive?
    What should one see in the D: drive?

    It would be more helpful to post a screenshot of your Disk Management run. Then it can be determined if the sizes of the partitions correspond to a correct installation and where the boot partition is.

    ??? Disk Management is part of Windows.
    It's somehow stuck in booting and neither normal nor safe modes will get to the login screen.
