    EFI partition deleted


    While installing a different OS. My EFI partition was wiped and set as unallocated space. I booted up a linux live cd and partitioned the unallocated space, formatting it back to FAT32. I was able to restore grub and boot into my linux distro. Now I want to restore windows' bootloader. I have a bootable usb with windows 10 on it.

    Can I just run Code: bcdboot X:\windows[/quote] from the install media? Or are there other steps I need to take?

    Is there some GUI recovery type tool that will do it on the install media?

    :)

    Move EFI partition

    its to enable win 10 to update to its anniversary edition.. it cant do this due to lack of C drive space i have had a quick try with the trial version of easus.. it didnt seem to be able to do what i want..

    i am assuming i cant just delete the efi partition but maybe i could.. as yet i havnt even figured out how to get into the bios of the thing.. maybe that should be my next step.. *Smile EFI partition deleted :)

    diskpart could probably do it but figuring out how (it aint that user friendly) might be difficult without step by step instructions..

  4. EFI partition deleted

    The Efi system partition deleting during clean install....

    hi,

    You are saying that i should not delete them (the EFI System partition) and just install windows to primary or main partition. Please tell me that i am correct in understanding this. If i am not, please give some easy step to do so.

    Also, If i delete all my partitions including EFI and then click next to install windows, can't that be recreated. The disk looks like this
