disk 1 in screenshot is SSD?

Did you clone disk 0 to disk1 and made partitions smaller? If so... Recovery an OEM partition isn't needed on SSD!

bcdedit/enum all
can be run in windows! just start elevated command prompt

I think startup repair was a little bit confused! Disk0 is the first disk to try to boot from. RECOVERY is marked active. I think windows did try to repair that partition instead of SSD. But not sure about that

Attached is the bcd.txt file.

I did clone disk 0 to disk 1, yes. Does this mean I can delete the second and second last partitions, as seen in my screenshot of disk management?

bcdmenu is realy a mess!! Some things point to harddiskvolume5 , some to D and one to unknown.

Do in elevated command prompt:
dir/ahs \Recovery\1f8184a4-14de-11df-9734-f08c6d8c50b0

Hi Kaktussoft,
I really appreciate you staying with me on this.

The first part of your instruction there doesn't seem to work for me - it says it could not find path specified.

The second part, reagentc/info :

Extended configuration for the Recovery Environment

Windows RE enabled: 1
Windows RE staged: 1
Setup enabled: 0
Custom Recovery Tool: 0
WinRE.WIM directory: \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition2\recovery\windowsre
Recovery Environment: \\?\GLOBALROOT\device\harddisk0\partition2\Recovery\WindowsRE

These are the strange identifiers in bcd.txt

identifier {07288cf1-a1e2-11e1-b319-91d364d3f396}

identifier {07288cf2-a1e2-11e1-b319-91d364d3f396}
identifier {07288cf3-a1e2-11e1-b319-91d364d3f396}

identifier {07288cf4-a1e2-11e1-b319-91d364d3f396}

identifier {1f8184a5-14de-11df-9734-f08c6d8c50b0}

First disable WINRE, delete unneeded stuff and enable WINRE

Code:
 
reagentc/disable (only proceed if command is succeful!) maybe some entries are gone now
 
bcdedit/delete               {07288cf1-a1e2-11e1-b319-91d364d3f396}
bcdedit/delete               {07288cf2-a1e2-11e1-b319-91d364d3f396}
bcdedit/delete               {07288cf3-a1e2-11e1-b319-91d364d3f396}
bcdedit/delete               {07288cf4-a1e2-11e1-b319-91d364d3f396}
bcdedit/delete               {1f8184a5-14de-11df-9734-f08c6d8c50b0}
 
reagentc/enable
All done from elevated command prompt
Post bcd output again

Hi again,
I've done as you instructed, and attached is the new bcd.txt file.

I had to change bcdedit/del to bcdedit/delete, but I presume it has the same effect!!
