    Dual Booting 2 x Windows 10 OS Drives (Existing Installs)


    It is uneccessary to do all of the above.
    1. Boot up Windows 10
    2. Open Disk Management and take a note of the drive letter of the other Windows 10
    3. Open Admin Command Prompt and type: bcdboot X:\Windows where X is the drive letter noted in step 2
    4. Reboot, you should have a dual boot menu.

    Dual Booting with Windows 8.1


    The procedure below will allow you to boot Windows separately or in dual boot configuration.
    Here's what I recommend to do:
    1. Disconnect the drive containing Windows 8.1
    2. Install Windows 10 with one drive connected.
    3. After step 2, reconnect the drive containing Windows 8.1
    4. Boot up Windows 8.1. Open disk management and take a note of the drive letter of Windows 10 OS.
      NOTE: if you boot up Windows 10, then take a note of Windows 8.1 drive letter
    5. Open Admin command prompt and type: bcdboot X:\windows where X: is the drive letter of Windows 10 (Windows 8.1 if you boot from Windows 10 in step 4)
    6. Reboot the PC. You should have a dual boot screen.

    NOTE: To break off the dual boot setting, Win+R->msconfig->boot and delete the none default entry on the list.

    Reinstalling Windows (what drive)


    It may be possible to troubleshoot and fix the boot problems and operating system/registry problems.
    Sometimes access denied can be fixed.
    Sometimes missing dll files can be fixed.

    If you clean install, it can be performed in the shortest time however the files will be cleaned.
    If you boot rescue the files can be backed up to another drive.

    If you troubleshoot these are the initial steps.
    The next steps will be based on the results displayed from these commands.

    Perform the following steps:

    1) Find a flash drive that you can format: ( > or = 8 GB)
    2) Create a bootable Windows 10 iso (now Windows 10 build 1803)
    Download Windows 10
    3) Insert the bootable Windows 10 iso flash drive into any USB port
    4) Power on the computer and click the applicable keyboard key or modify the BIOS boot order so that the USB external HD is on top
    List of PC brands with their corresponding hot-keys
    5) It may take 5 - 10 minutes for the iso to load while viewing the Microsoft Windows icon
    6) Select the language, time, currency, and keyboard, or click next
    7) Click troubleshoot
    8) Click command prompt > Administrator: X:\Windows\System32.cmd.exe > X:\Sources>
    PLEASE USE A CAMERA OR SMART PHONE CAMERA TO TAKE PICTURES AND POST IMAGES OF ALL OF THE FOLLOWING STEPS:
    Type all of these commands.
    Comments are in parenthesis.

    9) bcdedit /enum
    10) bcdedit | find "osdevice"
    11) C:
    12) dir
    13) D:
    14) dir
    14) E:
    15) dir
    16) diskpart
    17) list disk
    18) list volume
    19) select disk 0
    20) detail disk
    21) list partition
    22) select partition 1
    23) detail partition
    24) select partition 2
    25) detail partition
    26) select partition 3
    27) detail partition
    28) select partition 4
    29) detail partition
    30) select disk 1
    31) detail disk
    32) list partition
    33) select disk 2
    34) detail disk
    35) list partition
    36) sfc /scannow /offbootdir=B:\ /offwindir=B:\windows
    (change the letters B to the drive letter displayed in steps #10)
    37) chkdsk /r B:
    (change the letter B to the partition drive letter seen in step #10)
    (This may take many hours and typically displays ETA.)
    38) (reboot as needed)
    39) (reopen command prompt > Administrator: X:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe > X:\Sources>
    40) bootrec /fixmbr
    41) bootrec /fixboot
    42) bootrec /scanos
    43) bootrec /rebuildbcd
    44) (reboot)
