I know what bios is. Just wondered how to get into it because i used to use shift after a restart to get to bios but i didn’t know for sureOh dear. You have no clue, what BIOS is.
After you turn on your pc, press Delete button repeatedly. You'll get into BIOS then.
Find boot priority settings and
set first boot device to
[UEFI] USB flash drive
It says i need to sign in, do i sign in with my microsoft account which is tied to my old windows or should i just create or sign in to a random oneYes - that's the idea.
Just copy the \windows\boot folder from new windows partition to old windows partition. Don't copy any other folders.
Wait, i’ve just copied and replaced the boot files from the new windows to the old windows. Now what do i do? Was i supposed to do it in Command prompt? I just did it from the fuel explorer and it workedIt requires administrative privileges.
Do copying from elevated command prompt instead (replace drive letter g: with appropriate letter for old windows partition drive letter)
xcopy /e /h c:\windows\boot g:\windows\
This tutorial will explain how to open an Elevated Command Prompt in Windows 10. You can use this Command Prompt to type commands that will be executed with Administrative privileges.www.bleepingcomputer.com
Post #103 step #4.Wait, i’ve just copied and replaced the boot files from the new windows to the old windows.
Now what do i do? Was i supposed to do it in Command prompt? I just did it from the fuel explorer and it worked
That's correct.Also i was supposed to copy the boot folder IN the windows folder right? Not the WHOLE windows folder? Cuz i copied the ‘Boot’ folder inside of the windows folder and replaced it
The new windows installation is Now the C: Drive, my old one is now D:. So do i do the command with D instead of G?Some essential files are missing. Bcdboot can't do it without those files.
Currently I see bootres.dll.mui missing. Probably there are more.
Here's, what you're going to do:
1. shrink 930GB partition by 100GB and install windows in there
diskpartlist diskselect disk 0list partitionselect partition 3(select 930GB partition)shrink desired=102400
2. Boot from windows installation media. Install windows 10 into newly created 100GB partition (choose advanced install mode and specify location for new windows).
3. When this is done and you have successfully installed windows 10 there, boot into new windows and copy folder (and all contents)
from newly installed windows (100GB partition) to old windows (830GB partition).
4. Open elevated command prompt and execute:
a) 1st assign letter to bootloader partition
diskpartlist diskselect disk 0list partitionselect partition 1(select 529MB partition)assign letter=hexit
b) Find out drive letter for old windows partition. Check it in Disk Management.
Could be F: or G: . I'll assume it's G:
Execute bcdboot command from elevated command prompt (change command accordingly, if drive letter is not G: )
bcdboot g:\windows /s h: /f uefi /vIf there are no other problems in your old windows, then this should fix it.
Next time you boot your pc, you'll be able to choose to boot into old windows or new windows.
If you can successfully load into old windows, then you can delete new windows and reclaim used space.
https://ibb.co/ns80QD3 So it copied all the files but it still comes up with the error message i said in my last message. I notice there’s a (2) after the error, does that mean there’s a duplicate in there?One line:
xcopy /e /h /y c:\windows\boot d:\windows\Another line
bcdboot d:\windows /s h: /f uefi /v
