On my laptop, there are two instances of Windows 10. Upon inspecting the Boot Entries using VisualBCD, I found that the initial entry is for Windows A:

This refers to the entry for Windows B:

I have included two entries into the refind.conf file:

    menuentry "Work Station" {
        icon \EFI\refind\themes\icons\os_win.png    
        volume 4:
        loader \Windows\system32\winload.efi
    menuentry "Music Station" {
        icon \EFI\refind\themes\icons\os_unknown.png    
        volume 5:
        loader \Windows\system32\winload.efi

Upon rebooting my laptop, I am directed to the rEFInd bootloader. However, upon selecting one of the two entries, an error message pops up indicating that the winload.efi cannot be located.

The only way to access one of the two Windows instances is by selecting the automatically detected entry, which leads to the Windows bootloader, and then selecting either Windows A or B. I am struggling to find a way to directly boot into one of the two Windows instances without having to go through the Windows bootloader.

I have tried various methods such as using C or D and the GUIDs of the volumes in the volume section of the menu entries, but nothing seems to work.
