So after installing windows 10 again, I decided to use UEFI boot and “format” the drive for EFI boot. I repeatedly have failed boot attempts where it says the boot manager is missing. Going into the BIOS and toying with the boot settings/priority didn’t seem to fix/hold the solution although picking a manual boot override for the boot manager partition of the drive had windows load properly.
I think I finally found the solution (not sure) was to disable EVERY other option I could find for boot devices. Having the other drives/partitions as #2, #3 boot priority, etc seemed to be creating some unknown problem. Will try to remember to update this post later if I either confirm or deny if my computer stops having issues with booting.
