Win 10 won't boot up anymore

Recommended Posts

I used to have dual boot separate hard drives the win 10 on SSD and the Win 7 on a 500gb. Yesterday I started getting some freezing and when I looked at ctrl alt delete I saw Acresso Soft Manager front and center so I went in win 7 erased some files involving the soft one in Prefetch on in Program Data, restarted and boom win 10 goes to repair. I tied all the chkdisk, diskpart, bootrec, bcdedit tricks in the book. I cannot for the life of me figure this out, and I know it can be done apparently I am set up with an MBR not GPT so no EFI partition. Included is a picture of the Disk Manager setup. Thanks in advance

      Hi all!
      I have DELL Alienware Aurora R4 machine with three hard drives:
      1.       (Local Disk)C: - (Windows 7) the “original” one that I bought with the computer.
      2.       (OS)D: - (Windows 10 with all updates) the one I’ve added after the “original” started to show signs of degradation.
      3.       (STORE)F: - (no OS) the one I use just to store stuff.
      I’ve had dual boot and everything was hunky-dory until last week the C drive have finally kicked the bucket.
      First the computer refused to shut down until I forced it. And next morning it took more than TWO hours to boot. When I finally got to the window explorer the C drive was still there but I couldn’t access or do anything to it.
      In the old times I could just remove it and set boot priorities in BIOS to boot from drive D. But if I actually remove the dead drive now, the computer says that it has nothing to boot from.
       
      It appears that with UEFI mode enabled
      1.       I don’t see the actual drives in the BIOS (It only shows general source types, like Hard Drive, CD/DVD, etc.) and therefore cannot boot from a particular internal drive.
      2.       I cannot assign Active Partition
      3.       I cannot remove the dead C drive
      So, what the heck am I supposed to do?
      P.S. Could I just buy a new drive, clone the D drive to it, call it C and use the D for something else?
       
       
      Please, HELP!
