I recently upgraded from Win8 to Win10. The Win8 machine was in a dual boot with Ubuntu on an 80GB SSD. After the update and a few other issues I created while messing around with GRUB, I'm now left with only one partition on the drive: the Win10 OS partition. That's it! And… it doesn't boot… and I think that's because it's all alone without an EFI boot partition and MSR…??? At least that's what this and this have to say.
I've attempted a few times following several different guides to reinstate the other partitions I've read (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh824839.aspx) are necessary to boot Windows. But it still refuses to boot. I'm confident this can be done but I'm struggling with the how.
I have full access to Xubuntu via LiveDisk. I can access the Win10 partition from the LiveDisk. And while I apparently don't have enough rep to post it, I can provide a pretty screen grab from gparted showing the current state of my disk.
