Hi.
The story: I ran out of storage on my Windows partition so i decided to move 30GB from my Data partition to my Windows partition using an "alternative program". It said it need to reboot because the partition is being used and after the restart my PC booted straight into the BIOS. The Boot menu is empty. (no HDD option to boot??)

The problem: I tried changing all kinds of settings in the bios but no result. So i decided to install a fresh copy of windows. So i made a bootable flash. The windows installation went perfect (all my partitions were detected. I even made a new bigger partition for windows). Setup reached the point for the first of several reboots. But after that it went back straight to the BIOS and HDD was not a boot option again (HDD was not detected, only the USB..). I ran the windows setup again and the changes i made are still there. (New partitions and a fresh installed Windows).

 

 

Its a UEFI

 

Help me please!

Reset UEFI to default values

Check to ensure that Secure Boot is enabled

See if it boots

 

If not, then disable Secure Boot and see if it boots.

Then, if it doesn't, set the system back to default values.

 

If that doesn't work, then use your installation media to boot to Startup/Automatic Repair

Run that in order to see if that makes the system bootable.

Tried all of that already. Doesn't work...

Automatic repair says it can't fix the problem and tells me to reboot...
