  1. Laptop has two EFI partitions


    Hello everyone, Don't know who else to ask. I recently cloned an M.2 drive over, and after the clone was complete the computer would not boot due to a bcd error. I was doing some research and wound up on reddit. Someone else mentioned the same thing happening and they mentioned that their EFI partition was some how deleted during the clone so I thought I just needed to recreate the EFI partition. I ended up creating a new 100mb partition and the computer still wouldn't boot. It gave me a BCD error. After some stumbling I managed to get it into safe mode. I ran SFC /scannow which got to 22% and

    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 Laptop has two EFI partitions :)

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

    Blank EFI Partition

    I have an ASUS R558UR.

    I had windows 10 installed on my laptop and I decided to again have a clean install of windows 10. I booted from USB and cleaned windows partition i.e. C drive and also cleaned EFI partition. I reformatted Drive and it had also created EFI partition of 100
    MB. I installed windows on laptop and setted that up. After installing windows my laptop it started taking a long time to boot about 90 seconds but earlier it took only 7-10 seconds. After analysing everything I found that my EFI partition is blank.

    Please suggest me how to write back EFI partition so as to reduce boot times.

    Thanks in Advace.
