    After that it came up with a lot more code. (I was too lazy to write it all down )

    That error could indicate that the hard drive is failing.

    You're missing some partitions.
    Try in command prompt
    Code:
    create partition efi
    format quick fs=fat32
    list partition
    list volume Note: Note the volume letter where the Windows OS is installed.
    exit
    
    bcdboot X:\windows Note: Replace "X" with the volume letter of the Windows OS partition.
    
    BCDBoot copies the boot files from the Windows partition to the EFI System partition and creates the BCD store in the same partition.
    This creates 1 partition that every OS has, called EFI Boot partition.
    There is also the OEM Recovery Tools Partition.

    EDIT:
    Also, type this in command prompt
    create partition msr

    This creates the MSReserved Partition.

    Sorry.
    It says that MSR and EFI partitions are only supported on GPT disks.
    Convert the selected disk to GPT and try again.

    This is what is comes up with after I type in the first command you told me to.
