I have got a mini computer with 32Gb of internal storage. Windows 10 takes at least 20Gb and the disk is now full.
So I decided to move the system to an external HDD SSD drive, using minitool partition wizard.
After the cloning, I have got this configuration:
disk 1 is the internal disk. You can see 2 EFI partitions in the 2 disks(I don't know if it is important but maybe there should be only one).
When I try to start my computer, I am asked to choose which windows to launch. If I choose the first, the OS starts fine(but I have no more enough space). If I choose the second, I have a blue screen and a message :
error 0xc000000e one required file is missing of contains errors. \Windows\system32\winload.efi
thanks to google, I learnt the it means an important boot failure, and saw some ways of fixing that; one way is :
- enter in the terminal via a windows distribution disk
- bootrec /ScanOs
- bootrec /RebuildBcd
- bootrec /FixMbr
- bootrec /FixBoot
but then I have an arror after "bootrec /RebuildBcd" : if lists one disk, I get a question ("add installation to boot list?"), and then I get the error "the system cannot find the file specified".
My questions are:
- maybe a good tool to copy/move a windows 10 system could avoid me too long fixes
- if not, is the problem linked to two EFI? if so, can I remove one?
