  1. Question about EFI partition.


    I converted my boot drive to GPT a couple of days ago. Took a bit of effort because I used minitools instead of reimaging. I had to re-register a couple of pieces of software but other than all my software and hardware are functioning correctly.
    This is a snapshot of the MS disk management of my Windows partition.

    .
    What I do not understand is why it shows it as "Boot". Sysinfo definitely shows it is booting as UEFI.
    Anyway here is a screenshot of minitool and the full disk management view.
    All thoughts will be appreciated. James.

    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 Question about EFI partition. :)

    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.

    Question about EFI partition.

    Which tool to recover the EFI partition? Booted into Rescue Disk

    That's not what they suggest here:

    FIX: Steps to Fix Winload.EFI Error - Appuals.com

    Winload.EFI Error, is pretty much self explanatory by it’s name is an error that prevents windows from loading. This is usually caused by corrupt boot records or incorrect boot configuration. Depending on your Operating System, the error message may vary but the keyword winload.efi will be same. On a Windows 8/8.1/10 system, the error usually pops-up in the following form.
