I'm dual booting Windows 10 (pre-Anniversary Update) and Fedora 24 on a Lenovo IdeaPad N580 (Intel Pentium B960 2.2GHz, 4GB RAM, UEFI with Secure Boot disabled). I originally had just Windows 10 and then installed Fedora 23 alongside it and everything worked fine - it worked as well when I upgraded to Fedora 24. A while back, I decided I wanted to try out Ubuntu, and installed it only overwriting the root, /boot and SWAP partitions and keeping my home partition. Windows 10 can still boot here. Then I decided I didn't like Ubuntu and reinstalled Fedora, with the 24 installer, trying to do exactly what I did with Ubuntu. The interface was a bit different, but I'm sure I did it correctly: after I did all the partition configuring, it gave me a popup saying "We will only touch these partitions," and the partitions it listed were root, /boot and SWAP. Nothing else.
Then, when it finished installing, I rebooted. The only options in the GRUB menu were Fedora and Fedora Recovery - nothing else. No Windows.
I tried installing rEFInd, which has worked for me in the past. But it didn't help, it gave me those same two options.
The Windows partition still exists and I can access it from Fedora - important files such as /bootmgr and /Boot/BCD seem intact. The Windows partition is at /dev/sda5.
As well, in the BIOS settings where Windows Boot Manager used to appear, it doesn't. It just has rEFInd and an entry with the model number of my hard drive - which I'm assuming just brings me to the GRUB menu. (I haven't actually tried bringing it to the top of the list and rebooting though - I'm a bit lazy :P)
Can someone help?
UPDATE: Manoj Sawai identified the issue: by formatting the /boot partition I was getting rid of the Windows EFI files. So I need to reconstruct the files at
I think I've reconstructed the directory
/boot/efi/EFI/Microsoft/Boot, but I need the other files in
Could someone tell me what files I need there?
