Hi, I was in a hurry and made the stupid mistake of not backing up before I resized a partition on my new Acer laptop, intending to clone my Windows 10 installation from a 1TB HDD to a 500GB SSD. Although the hard drive has less than 100GB used space, needless to say an error occurred, Error Code 0xc0000225.
The recovery partition of the HDD is not accessible using Alt F10 at the splash screen as recommended by Acer.
I have been following the advice in this video
I booted into a Win 10 flash drive and tried automatic repair, which took hours but did not work.
Next I tried command prompt - bootrec /rebuildbcd, which was successful; bootrec /fixmbr, also successful; and finally bootrec /fixboot - but that was not successful and returned an "access is denied" message.
Not sure whether to move on to the next suggestion, which is using Diskpart, or continue trying to find some way to get a successful result from bootrec /fixboot.
Advice would be much appreciated.
