    Hi all,

    So I made Win 10 image with Macrium Reflect, doing OOBE and other aplication so it's ready to deploy instead of fresh installing everything from scratch. But after restoring I can't find Windows Boot Manager entry when booting the pc and pressing F12 to select boot menu, but windows boot normaly and functional. How can I manually add the Windows Boot Manager entry? Is there a cmd I can use or some utility to do that?

    Boot into WinPE and use the bcdboot command to create the boot entries. ie, bcdboot c:\windows /l en-us
    bcdboot /? for more info/options.

    If you don't have WinPE, boot your windows setup, Shift+F10 for command prompt and run the command from there...

    Did you image the drive or just the partition?
