Hi! I have been using Arch Linux for a while, and I am running out of space on my SSD, so I'd like to get rid of it :P


I am using UEFI, so "bootrec /fixmbr" will obviously not work. I've found a related question here, but it is old and feels unnecessarily complicated. Has anyone ever done this and if so, can tell me how you did it?


Thanks for reading!




Simply boot from installation disk, open CMD and run bcdboot X:\Windows, where X is the drive letter in which Windows is installed (not always C:, in my case it was D:, even though it's shows as installed on C when I'm using the installed system).

Courage is fear trying to hold on a minute longer. We all need to find that extra minute inside ourselves if we're going to make it through this crisis.
