Say I reinstalled the system (windows). I believe that windows could

Before you go all heavy handed here, give us an idea of what's wrong
so we have an idea what you'll need to do. Are you planning on
reinstalling Windows? Does your Fedora system currently boot, and if
not, what happens if you try? If your Fedora partitions are OK, and
can be read when you're using a LiveUSB, there's no reason in the
world that giving it a new UUID would make sense.
Don't do this with EFI. That would be bad.
Then set the default. All is fine. Now, things are a little more
complicated. For me anyway.
reinstalling a fedora bootloader and using that is what I need to do,
everything is fine now at the moment.
If you're using EFI, you don't need to do anything. Windows and Fedora
have separate, independent bootloaders. The only thing you might have
to do is tell your BIOS that you want Fedora as the default boot option.
(Unless windows does something stupid like reformatting the EFI
partition, but it really shouldn't do that and I doubt it would.)
