Dual Boot Problem Win 8.1 and win10

HP Recommended
Pavillion 590-p0045
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

 

System:                   HP Pavillion 590-p0045  Desktop PC

Installed RAM:     8.00 GB

System Type:      64-bit operating system, x64 based processor

Windows Edition:  Windows 10 Home

Verson: 2004      

OS build:  19041.153

**************************************************************

I recently installed Windows 8.1 as a secondary Operating System so I now have a “Dual Boot” setup on the Computer.

Windows 10 is chosen and shows as the Default OS.

System boots up normally and the CHOOSE OS appears with both systems shown.

If I choose Windows 10, system boots up to Windows 10 sign in screen quickly and all is well.

If I choose Windows 8.1, the RECOVERY Screen appears with the 0xc000000e error, PC needs to be repaired, etc.

I choose ESC for UEFI settings and the START UP Screen appears and I choose F-11

I choose F-11 from the START UP  Screen Box and the CHOOSE AN OPTION Screen appears

 I choose CHOOSE USE ANOTHER OPERATING SYSTEM and THE "CHOOSE  USE ANOTHER OPERATING SYSTEM SCREEN" appears and I then choose win 8.1

Windows 8.1 Boots up normally.

 

I have reviewed the Windows Boot Manager file and it seems to be OK but I am not certain.

It seems that the Win 8.1 should boot up normally if chosen from the initial screen.

I reviewed and tried several solutions from this forum but none “fixed” the problem. At this point I can only Boot to the Win 8.1 FROM the System Recovery window  Startup/F-11/Choose An Option/Use Another Operating System/Choose an operating system/ Win10 or win 8.1

 

Any help will be appreciated.
