    Make a backup of the vmdk file used. Boot VM from Macrium iso or Windows installation iso. Try to repair BCD boot environment.

    What to do now???
    1. Use -at least sometimes- your own brain.
    2. Yandex is your friend.
    3. Fixing Windows boot problems - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase - KnowledgeBase v7.2 - Macrium Reflect Knowledgebase
    4. https://www.dell.com/support/article...ell-pc?lang=en
    5. Repair HyperV Machine Boot (VHDX) (replace "vhdx" with "vmdk", "ltsc iso" with "windows 10 iso")

    Three ways are not enough?
    Either use Reflect Fix Boot tool (easiest)
    or Windows BcdBoot command
    or parallel Windows installation & EasyBCD program (overkill).

    Please read the pages & threads referenced.
    - use diskpart subcommand list part to identify efi partition
    - use diskpart subcommand assign to add drive letter
    - use bcdboot command to reconfigure boot entry in bcd database.

    Vol 3 in my case is the efi partition? How find efi system partition
    ?
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/win...ons-techref-di
    Repair the system partition

    If the system partition has been corrupted, you can use BCDBoot to recreate the system partition files by using new copies of these files from the Windows partition.

    1. Boot your PC to a command line. For example, boot to the Windows installation disk and press Shift+F10, or boot to Windows PE (WinPE: Create USB Bootable drive).
    2. Use Diskpart to determine which drive letter contains your Windows partition and system partition (diskpart, list vol, exit).
    3. Optional: Format your system partition: format (drive letter of your system partition) /q
    4. Add a boot entry for your Windows partition: bcdboot D:\Windows
    5. Reboot the PC. Windows should appear.

    I gave this cmd

    when booting in VM from ISO Windows 10 2004, and went in cmd prompt



    Now boots OK
