I have moved my system partition to create 150 MB of space that I will later allocate to the boot partition.

Due to this now whenever I try to boot I get the BSOD of INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE.

I have tried the basic troubleshooting of recreating the BCD from the command line from the recovery. Is there anything else I can do ?

I don't want to make a clean install since my Windows OS contains files I need.

  • What exactly did you do to move the partition? Do you actually boot using UEFI? – Daniel B May 14 '17 at 9:43
  • Why did you move this partition without understanding that it would effect your ability to boot to your Windows installation? – Ramhound May 14 '17 at 14:07
  • @Ramhound I moved the partition so that I can install Grub to the EFI partition after installing linux for dual boot purposes. The EFI partition did not have enough space so I had to first move the Windows partition and then add the free space to the EFI system partition. – ng.newbie May 14 '17 at 17:48
  • @DanielB No idea. Any way to check ? But I know I am not using Secure Boot – ng.newbie May 14 '17 at 17:49
  • You may boot up with Linux live CD and move all essential files to another partition. Then reinstall Windows OS. – Biswapriyo May 15 '17 at 19:37
