    You can go back to diskpart, select the partition with OS and view details - detail partition
    If partition has type "17" it is hidden. If partition has type "07" it is normal NTFS partition.
    You can switch the type to "07" - set id = 07 override

    And do not forget to select correct partition.

    What will happen if you execute - C: ?
    Normally it should change prompt to current folder on disk C:

    It can be that hidden status affects this.
    Lets try to clear that hidden status. Enter the diskpart shell, select the disk, select the volume with OS and execute
    attributes volume clear hidden

    Another question - have you created folders on EFI partition: mkdir G:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot ??

    You can test that with
    dir G:\EFI\Microsoft\Boot\
    dir G:\EFI\Microsoft\
    dir G:\EFI\

    I have selected the OS volume but I tried to clear hidden, it says "Virtual Disk Service error: The object is not found"

    No folders, just the EFI partition. I see in the link you gave, further down I would need to create the folders or something but haven't reach that stage yet.

    Unfortunately I have no access to diskpart at the moment (at work). When I move to home (in 3 hours), I will look at my disks, partitions and volumes in diskpart shell.

    Meanwhile you can copy here what diskpart shows for OS partition and OS volume with commands
    detail partition
    detail volume

    Thanks. Look, I have to go now. I really really appreciate your time and effort and hope that you haven't given up on my case! :) Can we meet up again tomorrow, about same time that we started today? Thanks again.

    After I selected the disk in diskpart I selected partition (and volume) with OS and queried details on partition and volume:
    Code:
    DISKPART> list partition
      Partition ###  Type              Size     Offset
      -------------  ----------------  -------  -------
      Partition 1    Recovery           450 MB  1024 KB
      Partition 2    System             100 MB   451 MB
      Partition 3    Reserved            16 MB   551 MB
      Partition 4    Primary            945 GB   567 MB
    
    DISKPART> select partition 4
    Partition 4 is now the selected partition.
    
    DISKPART> detail partition
    Partition 4
    Type    : ebd0a0a2-b9e5-4433-87c0-68b6b72699c7
    Hidden  : No
    Required: No
    Attrib  : 0000000000000000
    Offset in Bytes: 594554880
      Volume ###  Ltr  Label        Fs     Type        Size     Status     Info
      ----------  ---  -----------  -----  ----------  -------  ---------  --------
    * Volume 5     C                NTFS   Partition    945 GB  Healthy    Boot
    
    DISKPART> detail volume
      Disk ###  Status         Size     Free     Dyn  Gpt
      --------  -------------  -------  -------  ---  ---
    * Disk 1    Online          953 GB  8191 MB        *
    Read-only              : No
    Hidden                 : No
    No Default Drive Letter: No
    Shadow Copy            : No
    Offline                : No
    BitLocker Encrypted    : No
    Installable            : Yes
    Volume Capacity        :  945 GB
    Volume Free Space      :  436 GB
    

    Notes:
    - After I selected the partition with OS the volume with OS is selected automatically - see that "* Volume 5 C NTFS Partition 945 GB Healthy Boot" line in partition details.
    - See that type of partition - ebd0a0a2-b9e5-4433-87c0-68b6b72699c7 - that`s the correct type for partition with OS. See more on types of GPT partitions here
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/api/winioctl/ns-winioctl-_partition_information_gpt

    So execute both detail partition and detail volume commands (for partition and volume with OS) and copy their output here.

    Partition 1 is recovery partition. Select partition 4. Somehow you assigned letter "C" to recovery partition.

    PS And look at the type of partition 4 - system. While on my rig the type of OS partition is "Primary".
