X1 Yoga (20FQ) - Dual boot windows 10 & fedora 24 problem - Can't boot windows 10 anymore

2017-03-13, 23:07 PM

Hi,

 

My attempt to setup my X1 Yoga (20FQ) laptop to dual boot windows 10 and fedora 24 failed and I am not able to boot on windows anymore :(

 

More specifically I installed fedora 24 while already having a windows 10 setup. During the installation the fedora installation manager has configured the partitions for dual boot. The installation was successful but to my surprise the grub 2 entry for the windows 10 didn't work anymore. 

 

I inspected the partitions and found that the windows are untouched. However the ' /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi' file is missing from the boot partition. I think I need to recover it so that I am able to boot again to windows.

 

Do you know how I can recover the file? I noticed that there was no windows 10 installation disk in the X1 packaging. Also what's the right setup for dual booting the two operating systems?

 

Regards,

 

Kostas
