No way of knowing what you did, since you don't give any info. You probably overwrote windows bootloader/efi partition. You can edit your linux bootloader to boot linux and windows. If you fix it with windows, It'll probably overwrite your linux bootloader. You'll need to give more info on what you have done.

Thxs for answer.
I wish I knew what I did!
I installed it next to windows and after that I couldn’t start windows anymore.
I tried to fix with windows, but there is no partition with/for windows.
It says no ntfs partition. And I can’t even create one.
I tried through Bios, Boot from USB, repair programs and lots more.
As far as I can see from amount of data on disk, files are still there

If windows says that, then you probably overwrote your windows install.

When you are booted into linux. What is the output of:
Code:
fdisk -l
parted -l
lsblk -f
You don't need all of those. That will tell you what you have on the disk.

If you still have an intact windows ntfs partition, then you can use ntfs-3g to mount it, and try and get your data off of it.

You are going to have to find out what you did. If you only overwrote the bootlader then you are ok. Just fix it. If you overwrote windows with the linux install, then it's gone.

Okay,
I’m quite sure I didn’t overwrite.
I’ll try the codes and see what it gives me and post the outcome.
Where do I enter codes - command Center?
Thxs for the moment. Hoping it’s the solution.

open a terminal and put sudo in front of each command
sudo fdisk -l
sudo parted -l
sudo lsblk -f

During the installation of Deepin, you would have been required to create a user with a password which should be the user with root/sudo privileges. Did you follow the tutoril video at their site, link below.
