  1. Stuck without a UEFI image


    Hi all - I need some suggestions and maybe even some help from an issue I put myself in!

    I recently purchased a new laptop for my music production. I have a few years of data on my old desktop’s hard drive. I wanted to make an exact image of that drive and boot it from my new laptop.

    Here’s where I went wrong - I overwrote the new laptop’s OS by cloning the old drive onto the new drive and now the laptop will not boot. The drive is not even being shown as an option in the boot menu.

    My understanding of the situation is that the issue happened because the old desktop boots from a legacy BIOS while the new laptop is only UEFI compatible. To my knowledge, there is not a legacy boot option on the laptop.

    I’m not sure if my desktop’s board has a UEFI boot option but, if it does, I’m hesitant to try using it in case it gives me any more issues. I’m not sure how I’d go on if I had 2 dead PC’s on my hands.

    So here’s what I’d mainly like to know here:


    • Is there a way that I can get a fresh UEFI image of windows 10 to boot from? Even though it wouldn’t have all of my data, at least I would have a working laptop.


    • Does anyone have any other ideas for options that I could try for this to work?

    Any info would be extremely helpful. I’ve been working on this for a few weeks now and it’s been an extremely disheartening process

    Stuck without a UEFI image

    Windows Spotlight image stuck

    Hi Robin,

    Windows Spotlight frequently changes the photos using
    Bing
    to provide an image-of-the-day giving everyone a fresher look every time they access their computers. This feature is dependent on the Internet connection and without it, you won’t be able to get yourself that special nature scenery.

    Furthermore, we suggest following the steps below to resolve the issue:

    • Right-click on the Start Menu.
    • Choose Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type the following commands (Wait for the process to finish before proceeding to the next steps.):
      • dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth, click Enter.
      • Sfc /scannow, click Enter.
      • Powershell, click Enter.
      • Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}
        then click Enter.
      • Restart the computer after the process.
    Don't hesitate to inform us on how it goes.
