    Connect both disks. boot up into whichever system is booting. Find out which is the drive letter for the system volume with Diskmgmt.msc (Admin). It should have a system hidden folder called BOOT when viewed in file explorer (if you have the folder options set to view system and hidden files and folders. for demonstration purposes, lets call this drive s:
    Find out what the drive letters of the current booted WIndows (c:) and the one that isn't booting (e:).
    For the one that isn't booting open an admin command
    + x a
    then type
    bcdboot e:\windows /s s: <enter>

    This should add an entry to the BCD (Boot Configuration Database) boot menu on the system drive s: for the windows system on drive e:

    change the drive letters to suit your drive letters

    AArgh sorry, my mistake.
    The system reserved drive is a PITA, I don't use them, needs a drive letter to run BCDBoot on.
    You can do this letter assignment in disk management.
    Once you have that drive letter do the BCDBOOT command again but the final drive letter that of the system reserved drive volume.
