Windows 10: Windows10 10586 / 1511 upgrade fails on boot.

    Windows10 10586 / 1511 upgrade fails on boot.

    Ok, I'm pretty sure I know what's going on, but I don't know which commands to run to fix. So, Windows 10 runs into issues during the reboot portion of the upgrade. I think it's that the windows boot manager believes it's in the first partition on disk, while it's actually on the second. (I moved it to avoid Linux and Windows not playing nice on the boot partition)

    I have two boot partitions MS_BOOT and BOOT. Since I moved the Windows boot manager off of BOOT(sdb1) to MS_BOOT(sdb6, was made later and moved to the second partition location in terms of locality. I tried Easybcd, but that only shows one of the boot partitions. So, I need to figure out how to list all the partitions in Windows. Disk Management doesn't show the partition names for the SSD the boot partitions and Linux are on. (only size)

    The Windows boot manager has

    >> device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume1

    I believe I want that to point to volume2 or 6. Not sure, which as I don't know whether the windows assigns letters to drives based on cardinality or locality.

    There's two types of commands / third party programs I think I need. One for detecting partitions on all connected hard drives, and a second for changing where device points to. Anyone able to help?

    The only thing I understood about your post was the title. Mine does the same, We are not alone either

    I don't have any partitions, just C drive

    Hmm, how does yours fail? Mine finishes in the updater and fails when I restart. Thinking it might be from Moving the Windows Boot Manager.
