    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 How to move EFI System Partition :)

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

    EFI System Partition

    So, an EFI system partition is perfectly normal on a Windows 10 disk (I assumed you've done an internet search and discovered that this partition is for booting your system).

    Are you trying to backup the contents of this partition?.... if so, what software are you using?

    How to move EFI System Partition

    UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME after creating new EFI System Partition

    I would probably have booted to a Windows install or recovery media to create the

    EFI system partition by using Diskpart and the create par efi command with any modifiers necessary to make it fit in the correct location.

    I know Linux can use a Microsoft EFI partition but I do know if Windows can use a Linux version.

    Yes, the bcd listing which shows the boot manager and OS loader.

    It may have been easier to use a third party partition manager to change the size of the EFI partition.

    If you might need it, here are the details of an EFI partition from Diskpart.

    Partition 2

    Type : c12a7328-f81f-11d2-ba4b-00a0c93ec93b

    Hidden : Yes

    Required: No

    Attrib : 0X8000000000000000

    Offset in Bytes: 524288000

    Volume ### Ltr Label Fs Type Size Status Info
