    Blue Screen error (winload.efi missing or contains error)

    Hello,

    This is my first time asking question here and sorry for bad english.

    PC hardware: i5-7400, mb - Gigabyte H270M-D3H, HDDs - 1tb seagate barracuda and 500gb seagate hdd.

    At that time i only had seagate 1tb hdd. I dont know why but my 1tb hdd somehow converted to dynamic disk and i cant install win10 in it, all options are disabled format, delete, next, extend etc. I was installing win10 beccause my old win10 got some error
    and cant be loaded and i formated drive C by cmd ( dont know why, i just thought that could enable next button). So i purchased new 500gb hdd and installed win10 successfully on it and backuped all my data from 1tb hdd to 500gb hdd then i deleted all partitions
    of 1tb and converted it to basic disk with gpt partition style. Then i installed win10 on 1tb hdd and when i tried to copy all data from hdd my pc very slowed down and all partitions of 500gb hdd gone from This pc. Then i tried to boot my pc with 500gb hdd
    and it showed winload.efi missing error and 500gb hdd started makeing clicking sound. Then i changed power cable connted to 500gb hdd (which is unable to load win10 and making clicking sound and can't be shown its partitions when i boot from 1tb hdd) and clicking
    sound is gone and then i booted my pc from 1tb hdd and all partitions are accessible by opening This Pc icon. So i copied all data from 500gb hdd to 1tb hdd. Then i thought i should also install win10 correctly in 500gb (which is showing winload.efi missing
    error) and when i did installed win10 in 500gb hdd i can't boot from 1tb hdd now (it is showing same error winload.efi missing).

    I was installing win10 in 500gb hdd again bcz if 1tb hdd shows some error or again converts to dynamic disk so i change boot option and boot from 500gb hdd and backup all data from 1tb hdd and i could try to solve error.

    And then i tried to install win10 in 1tb hdd again and it always shows some error, after finishing last step of installation and restarting, like winload.efi is missing and sometimes other files also. I have tried 7-8 times to install win10 in 1tb hdd and
    i can't it always endup in showing some error. But i can install and run window from 500gb hdd. I also deleted all partitions of 1tb hdd and created again after copying all data from 1tb hdd to 500gb hdd but nothing happens.

    The reasion is C drive is of 50gb only of 500gb hdd and other left size is D drive in which all my data is currently present.

    So please guys help me i want to install win10 in 1tb hdd and make it my primary hdd and i want to use 500gb hdd as secondary hdd for backing up etc.

    My current conditiong is i am able to run win10 installed in 500gb hdd and i can't install windows in 1tb hdd

  3. Windows 10 refuses to apply new save location settings.

    Every time I try to change the save locations for Apps, music, pictures, documents and movies, when I click "Apply", it reverts to the location being "This PC (CNew 1TB HDD Partition help :)". I have

    C: (Boot Drive) SDA............................................................................(120GB SSD)

    D: (Home Directory and Miscellaneous Storage) SDB...(1TB HDD)

    E: (Videos) SDC.....................................................................................(500GB 2.5" HDD)

    F: (Games) SDD0..................................................................................(~500GB Partition on 1TB HDD)

    G: (Apps) SDD1.....................................................................................(~500GB Partition on 1TB HDD)

    I: (Music) SDE0.......................................................................................(140GB Partition on 160GB HDD)

    J: (Rip Temp (CDs)) SDE1.................................................................(768MB Partition on 160GB HDD)

    L: (System Reserved) SDE2..............................................................(500MB Partition on 160GB HDD)

    And approximately 7.5GB un-allocated space on what, for the sake of argument, I'll call SDE3, even though there's no partition there.

    My question is, why won't it let me change the locations?

    New 1TB HDD Partition help

    It makes little sense to have completely separate partitions for different types of files - just create one partition on your 1TB drive and make individual folders inside

    Looks good to me.
    If you use OneDrive too, you could also place it's folder on the HDD too, that's what I did, because I have OneDrive synced between 2 PC's and 2 virtual machines, so data is being deleted and written all the time.

    I have 3 disks installed(2 SSD's and HDD)

    looks ok to me. If you do not need more than 4 partitions on the HDD you can make 4 primary partitions. If you want to add another partition beside the 4 you already have, you always can add in the logical partition (gotta reduce the one you have though). Primary partitions are limited to 4, while logical are only limited by the letters of the alphabet AFAIK....
