Hi there,

 

Today I was messing around with trying to get Ubuntu to work with my UEFI BIOS, when I accidentally deleted the Windows Boot partition. I tried to recover it through the CMD, but none of the commands worked (even though they were "succesful"). I decided to install Windows on another partition, on another disk. A fresh copy. Now I have two Windows 10 versions and I cannot choose between them. I keep booting to the "fresh" one, whilst I want to boot to the old one. This obviously makes sense since the other disk doesn't have a working MBR. However, I was wondering if it would be possible to "move" the fresh copy to the disk where the old windows version is on, so that I can keep using my programs etc. without having to reinstall them.

 

Thanks in advance,

David

Would it perhaps be a good idea to uninstall the "fresh" windows and to spend more time into fixing the other version?
