Volume 7 is probably the EFI on the HDD. The one you have selected is likely the EFI on the USB.
You have to boot from USB (WinRE) to be able to accomplish this task.oh sorry! i did not explain those partitions. Actually, I did a little bit conversely with your guide. At first, I created the new efi partition with my desired space (volume 7), then I executed the robocopy of the old efi (volume 1) to the data volume and now I'm sticking right here. I also havent plugged the usb throughout my process yet
Or you could boot the Windows installer from DVD, or use a Windows Recovery DVD/USB (CD?). Point is you have to be in a WinRE so the BCD (and other files) aren't currently busy.So I have to create a USB bootable of windows installation? Then boot to the usb and run cmd to implement this process? Because I haven't make any USB boot of win yet
There is a facility inside of Windows to create a recovery DVD.But there was no disc accompanied with my laptop when I puchased it, whenever I want to reinstall or refresh the windows, I do it in the recovery section in the setting of windows ( the 8.1). Looks like I have to make a USB boot one, could you guide me as well?
From the Windows installer, you can press Shift+F10 to enter CMD.exe in WinRE at the first screen you see.does the dvd or USB boot must be of the windows version that installed on my computer? I just have found a windows installer dvd of a windows 8 (not 8.1) and also it's just a copy.
When I insert the dvd or plug in the usb boot of windows installer, I do the work similar to how I boot to the mac os installation. Then at the very first screen I press win+R and type cmd to run the command prompt and execute the robocopy action. Is my thought correct?
