Hey there folks! First timer on dual booting UEFI systems and I messed up.
Since I’m unsure of the outcome I came here so somebody could reassure me for hopefully things go a little smother from now on.
I misunderstood the instructions on the calamares instructions for the EFI instalation and selected the Windows EFI partition for GRUB instalation without formatting it, but it broke windows and manjaro didn’t boot or even installed for that matter, so I wen in and formated the 300mb and flagged it boot and esp and managed to get manjaro working.
My question is: If I was to use this method: https://blog.d0zingcat.xyz/2015/09/28/Windows/How%20to%20repair%20the%20EFI%20Bootloader%20in%20Windows%2010/ to recover the EFI partition in another FAT 32 partiotion I created at the end of the disk and run an
update-grub would it make grub recognize the windows instalation? What else should I do?
Here’s the output of parted -l so you can better grasp what I mean:
