  1. SOLVED! at a cost.. I had to go with the nuclear option, that being to reinstall Windows. I took the SSD out and put it into another computer to back up some important stuff, all went smoothly. 1. To fix the corrupted USB I just ran the Windows thing on it again. 2. When I went to install Windows, it said my drive needs to be GPT and not MBR. 3. I followed this guide but that involved wiping the whole drive. 4. In a comment on that video I saw someone suggesting to create the partitions manually, something I was hoping Windows would do. 5. Not trusting Window
  2. What all does installing windows over everything i have entail? can it even make the partition?
  3. What do you mean "boots from internal drive"? The SSD is fully functional, it was in another computer earlier today and i backed up some stuff, it just DOESNT HAVE A BCD/EFI PARTITION. Im trying to avoid losing further data. Are you saying i just select the basic "Install windows" option from the bootable usb? Can that create a partition? What else does it entail, explain like i dont know anything bout computers(almost true). I dunno what youre on about or if you cant read, MY WINDOWS DOESNT BOOT.
  4. I am currently booted from a windows bootable usb because my SSD does not have a bcd and therefore windows cannot boot. I am currently following this: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.diskpart.com/windows-10/missing-efi-partition-windows-10.amp.html guide, method 2 to create a EFI partition. when i run the shrink desired command it says: the specified shrink size is too big and will cause the volume to be smaller than the minimum volume size. when i run "shrink querymax" it says: the maximum number of reclaimable bytes is: 0 B There is 70gb empty on that disk. What to
  5. Nope, there is only the big main "Partition 1" and a 500mb recovery "partition 2"

  7. So i followed the guide: first option to repair didnt work Second option to rebuildbcd in command prompt didnt work, so i googled why it doesnt. One guide said that windows repair enviroment cant be detected in USB 3.0. So i turned off pc and put the usb into a 2.0. Now i get this: Even when i put the usb back into 3.0 it still only shows this, not the blue windows stuff. Did the usb get corrupted?
  8. Lets say im able to backup what i need, Then whats the process. I just watched a video on how to create a EFI partition, do i do that and then do repair? What are the exact steps here? Thanks for the replies
  9. That is quite an expensive and time consuming solution. Is the bootable windows usb repair not an option? All i need is for windows to make a boot partition/folder on my SSD, right? Most of my truly important stuff is backed up elsewhere. I REALLY need this computer functioning. I have just found a windows forum post https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/windows-boot-loader-installed-itself-on-my-old/ff3dc47c-9a28-4d8f-bb94-bb2cf690e362 that deals with a similar issue but its quite complicated and i dont know whether it would help my c
  10. Everything important is on the SSD. Thats why im worried about losing data. I have previously reinstalled Windows without losing data (i think) but now its gotten complicated. The plan was to wait on my new SSD that i ordered last week to arrive and back stuff up on it, now i cant access anything.. Is that repair option from a usb the thing to do? And if what are the EXACT steps?
  11. An operating system wasnt found... nothing changed in thd BIOS either, SSD is still the only boot option (the other is "Disabled") same as an hour ago, i clicked the override boot and same thing again
  12. It was a fresh install, backed up some stuff on an old laptop and formatted everything, i have made posts about that experience aswell but i cant easily navigate to them as im on my phone.
  13. Ill try to put it as simply as possible: I currently have 1 SSD and 1 HDD The HDD used to be the Windows drive I bought a SSD, moved Windows to it and wiped the HDD One 100MB System partition of the HDD remained The PC doesnt boot without the HDD Recently, my HDD broke (refer to my last post) Yesterday it took 15 minutes to boot the PC The HDD was at constant 100% usage in task manager It took 3 hours to start Disk Manager It said my HDD is empty other than that System partition(66% empty) I had 600GB of stuff on the HDD Windows explo
  14. Some preface: Ive started playing Warzone but noticed that my HDD that I installed it on always had 100% disk usage in game, my fps was garbage and my textures werent loading. I decided to move it to my SSD but to do that I had to clear some space on it. So I moved a few steam games over to the HDD but one got stuck on verifying and put my HDD to 100% disk usage again. To fix this I had to clear steam´s download cache and uninstall the game entirely. Now, whenever I try to do ANYTHING on the HDD it just goes to 100% usage. Loading any game, movie or even checking how big a folder is puts
  15. update4: I updated the BIOS, the black screen after the restart was very long and I was starting to get worried but it eventually booted up. When I clicked on the up-pointing arrow in the bottom-right corner of my screen to see whether my drivers were running I was once again met with a blue screen PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA or something along those lines. Okay, new type of an error, I´m going somewhere, after a restart however, all was fine. IT WORKS! It has been stable so far at least, if this were to change I´d certainly come back and update the post. My PSU fan is making
