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!

 

Solution:

 

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.
