Re: Can't boot to previous Windows 8 installation
The report shows no Windows loader files on sdb -- and without those, it can not boot.
You need to do the following:
1) Disconnect all but your Windows drive
2) Boot with the Windows drive connected but from the Win8 optical disk
3) Run Startup Repair three times -- that's right, three times
When done and you reboot, you should go straight into Windows.
Ubuntu 16.04 Mate, Mint 17.3; MS Win 8.1, MS Win10 Pro.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
