    Ok back into windows now but nothing better, can I clone the system files off F into a new partition on the SSD?

    Managed to fix it after a good sleep and with fresh eyes.

    I copied the system files over from F to another partition I made on the SSD and then ran through bootrec commands on it and all's better!

    Thanks for the help topgun
