    Yes, Index 2. Make sure and add the spaces in the command where needed, usually in front of the /.

    Dism /Apply-Image /ImageFile:R:\RecoveryImage\install.wim /Index:2 /ApplyDir:C:\

    I can't see the entire command, so check it was entered correctly. You did not put a : after C

    Edit: To repeat the previous command, use the Up arrow, then correct it.

    So you did the bcdboot C:\Windows and it completed correctly.

    The next thing to do is cross your fingers, then reboot.

    About the bios mr. Saltgrass.. Do i need to check the correct boot device if it set as first priority? Or it is ok to exit the cmd and turnoff?
