Topic: restore deleted Win10 partitions. Can't boot (32-bit UEFI laptop)
I'm an old-school Windows guy with a new Win10 netbook. It only has 32MB onboard eMMC storage, a good portion of which was occupied by the recovery partition. So, I went about deleting the recovery partition to free up more storage space. BUT, in the process I noticed these two smaller partitions that I thought I'd delete as well. Not knowing the new EFI scheme used by Win10, I of course deleted my boot partition and Windows partition.
Of course, non of the Windows recovery tools worked -- wouldn't even boot in 32-bit UEFI mode. The only things I could get to boot were: 1. TestDisk (which did not identify the Windows partitions correctly) and 2. GParted. TestDisk messed with the partition tables, but not other data was overwritten or "recovered."
I want to use Gparted to restore the Windows partitions as they were. However, I'm not sure how to use the live cd (booted from USB) to restore the partitions. In THEORY, I should be able to reset all the partitions and then boot back into Windows 10.
Please give me some idea where to start on this. Here's a screenshot of the WIndows partitions before I deleted the 2 small ones
