Windows 10: Windows wont boot after installing linux

    Windows wont boot after installing linux

    writing from a phone so will try to keep it as short as possible.
    My SSD wasnt partitioned, so when I decided to install linux i made a partition from the default one, and installed linux on that newly made partition, after installing Linux (zorinOS), Windows wont boot nor linux does. I get automatic system repair screen, where "exit and continue to windows 10" just restarts pc and brings it back to same screen, other options like startup repair, startup settings (oh btw startup settings theres no linux, just windows boot manager) yields no results too.
    Like is there any way to fix this without reseting?
    Regards, - Augis.

    Edit: reseting doesnt work either...

    Do you have access to a working computer? If so, download Kyhi’s Bootable Rescue Disk. Extract the iso file to a bootable flash drive or burn it to a dvd. Boot from the flash drive or dvd. On Kyhi’s Rescue Disk is a program called Macrium Reflect Free. This is a imaging program. On the Restore part of the program is a feature called Fix Windows Starup Problem. Point to the Windows partition and see if it can fix your problem. I don’t know for sure if it will work but it’s worth a try.
