How Often do you re-install windows if ever? windows 10 pro 64 bit etc...
My current install originated as a Windows Vista install in 2007 ish, upgraded to Windows 7 and then upgraded to the windows 10 beta and now retail. All same install.
I cloned it from the 140gb Seagate HDD to an SSD just before my windows 10 upgrade.
Man oh man! I ran into this recently. I feel for you. I accidentally converted my windows drive, on purpose. Then no boot. Had to create an EFI partition, convert it to boot and copy some files in.First time since 2009 was a couple of weeks ago since I couldn't get my install to boot on my Ryzen 5800X setup.
Tried for a few hours to convert the drive to GPT with an EFI partition but wouldn't work, so I had to do a fresh install.
I was getting an error trying to resize the partition for the EFI partition, then I was getting an error during the GPT conversion.Man oh man! I ran into this recently. I feel for you.

Don't want to derail, just offer some information for the future.
I thought it was difficult for most to get a license for that, interested to know if mere mortals can obtain it.Did it first time in a couple of years the other day, I wanted to try Windows 10 Enterprise LTSC 2019, now it's backed up with all apps needed for computer life, no need to reinstall fresh until the next one pops up...
Every couple of years when windoze takes a dump. Like right now, dcom errors are piling up, googled how to fix them, then other dcom errors replaced the fixed ones, facepalm. Suddenly lost the search button for no reason. lol, os refresh is ahead of schedule now.How Often do you re-install windows if ever? windows 10 pro 64 bit etc...
