  1. Put my operating system on the wrong drive.


    I recently upgraded windows 10 on my pc and thought I had to put

    it on my HDD. Is there any way for me to migrate just the os system to a smaller SSD or am I better to just do a clean install on the SSD and start from scratch again on my HDD?

    :)

  2. need list of usb bootable Operating Systems

    I am looking for a good list of operating systems you can run from a usb or dvd.

    If not a list, then folks can just post their top picks.

    I want these to run from the usb/dvd without installing on the system or getting in the way of the system that exists on the hard drive.

    Thanks in advance.

    In post 26 there were steps listed to fix the operating system corruption.
    Are you able to follow them?
    In post 29 was the suggested dism repair command.

  4. Put my operating system on the wrong drive.

    Error: "An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system"

    Hi Stephen,

    I realize the inconvenience you are facing in accessing the operating system. Now that you have me with you let me take care of this.

    Do let us know if you are able to see Windows 7/ Windows 10 operating system while rebooting the device?

    As you are unable to boot the operating system, this issue might have occurred when the boot files are missing or corrupted.

    I suggest you re-built the boot rec by following the below commands and check if it helps.
    You will have to use Windows 10/7 installation media to follow the steps to boot into Recovery Environment and try to rebuild BCD.

    Step 1: I suggest you to create an installation media for
    operating system using the media creation tool

    If system boots to Windows 10:
    Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool


    If system boots to Windows 7: Download Windows 7 Disc Images (ISO Files)

    Step 2: After preparing the installation media, insert it hard reboot the device and follow the below:

    • Boot into Windows Recovery Environment using the Windows 10/7 installation media.
    • Click on Repair your computer.
    • Click on Troubleshoot and in the Advanced options.
    • Select Command Prompt. Type the following commands into the prompt and press Enter key after each command.
    • bootrec /fixmbr

    • bootrec /fixboot

    • bootrec /scanos

    • bootrec /rebuildbcd
    5. Restart the computer.

    NOTE: Modifying BIOS/ complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings incorrectly can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting
    from the configuring of BIOS/CMOS settings can be solved. Modifications of the settings are at your own risk.

    Hope it helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of booting the operating system for further assistance.

    Thank you.
