Did you go into your firmware (BIOS) settings and set the new EFI system partition as first in the boot order? Note, that right now you have two identical file locations, \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi, one is on C: drive and one is on the new EFI I: drive. In BIOS you need to set the one in the EFI partition as the first priority.

In bios I see the nvme sabrent 2TB in boot order ? CSM disabled ?

In your BIOS settings, CSM should be disabled. You should now see two entries for the same SSD as UEFI boot options.

This is my BIOS after I created the second EFI partition on my drive:

Notice I have two entries available on the same SSD. To get a clue as to where you computer is booting from you can run the commands:

Code:
bcdedit
diskpart
list vol

Like this:

  Volume 6         BIOS_RVY     NTFS   Partition     21 GB  Healthy    Hidden

DISKPART>

Notice in the Boot Manager Section the lines:

device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume3
path \EFI\MICROSOFT\BOOT\BOOTMGFW.EFI

Then you look to see what the matching volume (3 in my example) is to get a clue which partition it is. In my case I am still booting from my original 100 MB FAT32 partition and not the new 250 MB FAT32 partition that I created. I would have to change my boot priority to the second Windows Boot Manager in my list to change booting to Volume 4 in the list above.

Something is weird in your post #22. The instructions that I gave should have created a 250 MB EFI system partition with drive letter S:. Your disk management screenshot shows a 500 MB partition with drive letter I:. Did you change the commands that I listed?

@NavyLCDR
The main problem is to make the last update get installed
As I said earlier, this has nothing to do with boot files.

Is it crashing during updates or failing to download updates.

The first thing I do when update issues is to delete the softwaredistribution folder fron windows directory. Then check for updates again.

If this fails, do a repair upgrade by downloading latest iso, mounting it as a drive and running setup.exe. Backup critical data first - better make an image backup.

What drive letter did you give the EFI system partition,

Ok, @cereberus. I'll turn it over to you then. Bye! Good luck @William654, hopefully you get it straightened out!

OS
W11 Home - Custom Build
There are so many solutions to this depending on your tech-level knowledge. I suggest a reinstall of Windows using a Flash Drive. You can download W11 or W10 from these links and use the tool to create the Flash Drive. Before or after that is completed. backup up your personal files to an external or second internal SSD or HDD.

Do an advanced installation so Windows will create all your EFT, System and Recovery partitions in GPT. You don't want MBR like the old days.

Having a flash drive of either OS is much better for making repairs or reinstalling options. Yes you can find those in Recovery in Settings but not if you have system-core glitches or infections.
