I am running Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate on two PCs on my home network. I went to use one yesterday and was presented with a black screen. I rebooted the PC hoping that would solve my issue and was presented with the following error message while trying to reboot:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

File: \BOOT\BCD
Status: 0xc000000d
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data

I checked my other PC and saw that it had been updated with several Windows patches yesterday. I'm guessing that the broken PC had an issue installing or rebooting from one of the patches.

I ran the repair utility on the windows 7 dvd as instructed by the error message. It was unable to find a previous installation of windows with an error box saying:

The file or directory C:\Boot\BCD is corrupt and unreadable please run Chkdsk utility.

I tried the auto repair anyway, which appears to be working until the end when it gives me the "The file or directory C:\Boot\BCD is corrupt and unreadable please run Chkdsk utility" error again. Then it says it can't save the fixes and says it can't be repaired. When I check the details it says I need to "repair offline" and that it cannot find an OS installed.

In my searches for an answer, I read about rebuilding the BCD through the command prompt. I ran the following commands:

Hi guys,

I have an ASUS U32VJ laptop (Complete USB 3.0 ports - no 2.0, i5 3210, HD4000+GT365M, 4GB RAM).

I want to install Windows 7 64bit for now and just leave W8 in a partition I will not look at.
So i partition off the data drive ASUS left for me and give a fat 200GB+ for a Windows 7.

I get the following when I try to boot from via EFI menu and even through the BIOS to go EFI from USB:

Computer: Dell Inspiron 1525, 320 GB HD with about 2 GB of free space left, 4 MB memory, running Vista Home Premium 32-Bit, SP1, updates current. Just lately, booting from off, Windows will not load, but instead gives me a \Boot\BCD error (0xc00000f)--an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data. I have repaired this error with my Dell-supplied OS disc repeatedly, and each time I turn off the computer it has the same error at startup. I have read that I may have to rebuild the BCD, but I don't know how to do that. Before I check with Dell, who I suspect will just tell me to reload Windows, I need to know how approach fixing my boot configuration data. The computer has had no new software installations, just routine Windows and Trend Micro Internet Security updates, I checked the disc for errors, and a few files were missing or incorrect, and defragmentation has also been performed routinely. Dell PC checkup finds no issues. How should I proceed?

The 0xc000000d error is STATUS_INVALID_PARAMETER.  What this means is that "An invalid parameter was passed to a service or function."

My computer configuration:

Genuine Intel(R) CPU U7300 @ 1.3 GHz, 3 GB RAM
Microsoft Windows XP Professional v. 2002 SP 3
Network adapter Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

Internet connection: T1

Complete error details:
"The exception unknown software exception (0xc000000d) occurred in the application at location 0x00368aa0. Click OK to terminate, CANCEL to debug the program."

It logs me in, displays the contacts and offline messages, if any, then after about 10 seconds it crashes with the above error.

As a side note, when I cancel above to enter debug operation, nothing happens (except that the application closes).

I tried re-installing YM and I get the same error, only in this location.

Your help is much appreciated.

Thanks to all giving a thought to this.

If the setting is OK, then...

Do you have a UEFI boot mode compatible Windows 8.1 64-bit USB flash drive?

Here is info about UEFI Boot Mode (installing using the GPT partition style) and Legacy BIOS Boot Mode (installing using the MBR partition style): link

Note: You don't need this step if you download the Windows 8.1 installation media from Microsoft's web site and select the "USB flash drive" option (see this link for help). This USB flash drive can be booted in both UEFI and Legacy BIOS boot mode.

I recently booted up my Gateway notebook only to find the "blue screen of death"

I rebooted and it came up to a windows boot manager screen which says windows failed to start..insert installation disc and click repair to fix...blah blah...i'm sure you know the story...

My question is, I booted the Vista disc and when I click repair it doesn't even find the C: drive...when I try and run the BCD fix from the command prompt screen, it says it found 0 Windows installations...would this indicate a faulty hard drive?? If so, I dont mind replacing the drive, I just wanna make sure this is the issue before I spend the money to replace it...

Much thanks for any help anyone can offer!

A:Boot Configuration Data Error

I'm not sure what BCD fix you tried, but see if it is this one and if not, try this one.

To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps: (you need a Vista Installation Disk to do this)

1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
2. Press a key when you are prompted.
3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
4. Click Repair your computer.
5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
7. Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.

Note If rebuilding the BCD does not resolve the startup issue, you can export and delete the BCD, and then run this option again. By doing this, you make sure that the BCD is completely rebuilt. To do this, type the following commands at the Windows RE command prompt:
 bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
 c:
 cd boot
 attrib bcd -s -h -r
 ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /RebuildBcd

See if that works.

If you don't have the disk (or that didn't work), try EasyBCD http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 and see if that helps resolve the problem.

If that doesn't work, you probably have some type of hardware problem - but it's hard to tell. It may be as simple as the hard drive cable got disconnected a... Read more

Hi hai-kai,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
BCD Error code: 0xc000000d would easy to fix using a recovery media ,
 
But since you were not able to create one initially, then best check on your warranty if it is still active and call in tech support for further options. 
 
By the way you can fix it within 20-30 minutes using lenovo Factory reset using the NOVO button. (page 5 , 25 )
That would surely delete everything on the system and you need to reinstall them back. 
This should be a final option. 
You may slave your harddrive to back up first or use a bootable rescue disc to transfer files . 
 
Same as booting to BIOS . 
Turn off ps and use the same Novo button to turn on , choose BIOS set up 
You can change the BOOT to legacy from UEFI and boot priority to the USB, and check you the USB would be detected as boot option . On exit tab , save changes and exit or F10 . restarts.
Restarting then tapping F12 can also lauch the boot manager to repair BCD files . 
 
I would suggest running full diagnostics if you were able to boot back to Windows to check for your harddrive integrity , if its not the main cause of the error code in the first place .
 
Hope that this help reolve the problem. 
Have us updated on how it goes too.

Hello,

I'm trying to do a clean install of windows ultimate x64 on my dell Inspiron 20 3043 via USB on a new ssd.

So, this is a new machine. I pulled the disk drive and installed a new sandisk ultra 128gb ssd.

The bios is InsydeH20 version A04

When I boot up and choose uefi USB I install, It goes straight to the a black screen with windows boot manager, error 0xc000000d. I can't even get the windows install screen.

I've read as many forum threads as I can and I've done the following.

I created the USB using Rufus 1.4.0
GPT partition
fat32
default cluster size

(if I use any mbr option, the bios won't recognize the USB drive)

What am I missing!? I have 2 brand new ssd's (both sandisk ultra 128). With one I played w every option from using diskpart to disk management. There's several threads suggesting how to set up the ssd via windows install, but I haven't even gotten that far.

Ultimately, I'd like to duel boot windows 7 & 8 (since... the new computer is basically a giant tablet).

I'm posting here after hours of frustration. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.

This has begun happening roughly 1-2 weeks ago, prior to this the system ran flawlessly (never had a BSOD)

The strangest thing is that the BSOD started happening right after a windows update, and an install of MSE (never had it before this)

I have tried many different tests and fixes to try and solve this issue myself, but to no avail.

-Ran Memtest with 2x2Gb 1600 + 2x4Gb 1066 \ no errors
-Removed 2x4Gb 1066 \ no errors
(current modules are 2?2 Corsair DDR3 1600 (installed) / 2?4 G.Skill DDR3 1066 (removed))
-Ran Chkdsk \ complete
-Installed new Heatsink (Speedfan was giving me false temp readings, the CPU temp was not the issue / Current temps are roughly min:36 max:69 per Prime95)
-Several clean installs of various recent video drivers
-Checked PSU connections to hardware
-Cleaned dust from hardware

All-in-all the BSOD issue takes longer after troubleshooting to occur, but still occurs very frequently. I am wondering if my Raidmax 680w PSU is to blame, but I cannot be sure because I have no replacement hardware to test this.

A:BSOD while playing GPU intensive programs, Common 0xC000000D error

I would like to add an additional note here, that now it would seem that when the computer freezes/hangs, the system is still functioning (sounds/keypresses (i know because i had a VoiP program running and it was still working and responding when the screen was black), the system DOES manage to recover the video driver for roughly 1-5 seconds before completely freezing (no sound, frozen screen and requires force restart)

The strange part of this is that when the system prompts me prior to loading windows for the typical Safe Mode, start normally etc. that entire screen is messed up, flashing, going black, and distorted and not properly displaying.

We are getting the above error randomly on some of the laptops we have deployed. The error comes right after you boot or when the windows 7 is left running. There are no special software running. The error in details is below.
"The boot configuration Data (BCD) settings for the following boot application have changed since Bitlocker was enabled
boot appplication: \windows\system32\winload.exe
change settings: 0x26000090
You must supply a bitlocker recovery key to start this system.
Confirm that the changes to the BCD settings are trusted.

If the changes are trusted then suspend and resume bitlocker. This will reset bitlocker to use the new BCD settings.
Otherwise restore the original BCD settings"
 
Can anyone please explain on how to correct this error. As before this is happening on few of the machines and we are seeing more as we go. Any tips would be nice...Thanks

I would delete the bcd store and run the commands again. You should be pointing them at the reserved system partition .

Otherwise, at cmd prompt, type:

2.) Create System Repair Disc, and from BIOS boot-up, choose boot from DVD-RW, but when it does that and loads Windows files, Error 0xc000000d and winload.exe missing comes up.

3.) When I tried to insert the installation disc that came with my computer, it's not recognized and nothing happens (during boot from DVD-RW).

A:After booting System Repair Disc, error 0xc000000d winload.exe missing

Hello Fanahtic Welcome to the Seven Forums!

My first guess which is likely to be the same as many would be the optical drive is where to begin as well as checking the disks for any scratches or finger marks from handling.

If the repair cd was simply a bad burn that would explain part of the problem when booting from it. The install/repair disk that came with the system might be a bad disk as well. That can happen where an OEM disk or even new media is simply a useless coaster.

Despite all that however if the drive is loaded up with dust and needs a len cleaning those are found in the dvd player, tv sections at any Target, Best Buy, Walmart, or other retail chein for a few bucks.

Or you might simply have to replace the drive itself if the lazer reader is now history if no other media is able to read from or burned to like a data disk. I just had to replace one of the two optical drives used on the present system due to some problems and put in a 7yr. old optical drive and all worked well! After a few years of use they can go on you.

This is the error message that my computer had:

You'll need to use recovery tools. If you dont have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your PC administrator or PC/Device manufacturer.
Press Esc for UEFI Firmware Settings"
I made a recovery drive and set the UEFI to a USB boot, and when I tried to boot it with a blank USB it didnt recognize it, but when I used the recovery usb it recognized it. I did that to check and see if it actually recognized the recovery data.
Now when I boot it just has the Lenovo screen and the swirling dots. it's been doing this for about a half hour. Is this normal or is there an issued with the hatdware?

A:Boot Configuration Data is missing, Error Code 0xc0000185

The Error code: 0xc0000185 is an I/O error.
This can be a hardware problem or a software problem.
So the first thing to do is to run diagnostics on the hard drive ( http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html )

If you have difficulties booting to the disk/drive, post back and we'll see about changing some settings in the UEFI to allow the boot.
I'm working on a drive that will do this for you, but it's still in the testing phase (and it's a 700+ mB download).
 
If the drive is dead/dying, you may have problems trying to recover your data.
Do you have a recent backup?  If not, post back for suggestions on how to best backup your information.
 
FYI - if it is dying, then it's best not to use the drive at all until you've done the backup.
If the drive does die fully, then data recovery gets very expensive (up to $2000 (US)) if it's even possible.

Hi everyone,

I tried to install new updates of Ableton live and the machine crashed badly... and since them it has really gone a bit wonky.

When I press the on button to boot up the laptop I get the following message.

The Windows Boot Configuration Data (BCD) Store file contains some invalid information.

Info: The configuation for an element within the object is invalid in the boot configuation store.

The assiocated windows boot loader entry may not be available for selection until the problem is rectified by an administrator.

Enter= continue.

So then I press enter... it boots up. (in about 5 seconds as it is a ssd...)

When I do this action: to see if I can do a restore etc...

Start-Control Panel- the progress bar at the top of the expoler window freezes half way and I cannot access any of the menu Items.

Also I canot move this panel or close the window.

I have a back up on another external drive ..... plus I have made a repair disk and so on when I first got the machine.

Windows 7 x64 system installed last week. All has gone well until a while ago...Adobe Acrobat downloaded an update and installed it, then asked to restart the machine.

At restart Windows quit and offered to restart normally or to repair itself. I let it try to repair itself, but it repeatedly failed, with the error:

*Boot configuration is corrupt.
Result: Failed. Error code=0x490*

In addition, I noticed that windows apparently is not finding the boot drive...looking at the repair log I saw:

System Disk=\Device\Harddisk\Windows directory-\\?\GLOBAL ROOT\Device\Harddisk1\Partition2\Windows

Windows appears to be looking at the wrong disk...it's installed on a new drive with only one partition. Using the Command Prompt option in the repair window, I could not access the *real* drive "C" (Drive 0), only Drive 1, which has two partitions for D and E.

Hiren's Boot CD running NTFS4DOS does not see drive 0 at all and also shows Drive 1, Partition 1 as drive C. Hiren's mini-WinXP shows a drive C designated as "System Reserved" - and shows Drive 1 as drives D and E on its partitions 1 and 2 respectively.

Mini-WinXP shows the otherwise elusive disk 0 as disk F.

I could sure use some ideas for a fix...I didn't have many to begin with and by now I'm down to none! Thanks in advance, if anyone can help.

Hi,

I have exactly the same issue as the person on this page, however I have already tried the three solutions and neither work, further explanation below.

http://social.technet.microsoft.com.../thread/022386ba-a445-44ba-97f7-d8ba4b6cc54b/

I was watching a DVD on my PC last night when it began to stutter and finally the system completely froze. I would like it 5 min and then the PC would work again for roughly 5 sec before crashing again, I let this go on for about 20mins but the PC never fixed itself so I rebooted. On rebooting I got the above message.

1. My first attempt to fix it was using safemode, this however didn't work and it prompted me to use the repair progam on the Vista installation disk .

2. I booted from the vista disk and tried a start-up repair. This ran, said something was fixed and asked me to reboot. I did this but to no avail therefore I went back to the repair centre.

3. I did not have system restore turned on so this option was not useful to me.

4. I then read something suggesting I use Bootrec. However I tried running bootrec /RebuildBcd but it could not find my OS, instead I used the following commands;

* bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup
* c:
* cd boot
* attrib bcd -s -h -r
* ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

Windows crashes on startup -- a freeze in the "Starting Windows" screen. The Event Viewer shows this recurring error:

Administrative Event Viewer Error - Session "Microsoft Security Essentials OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D

Searches give me this thread as the only one with something that might be a solution; however, the solution in that thread seems to be temporary, and the folder and file specified don't exist in my current install of Windows 7 and MSE.

Recommendations?

I just joined this forum today, I found it while searching for help to fix the following error as displayed in the Event Log:

When I boot up I do get my desktop, but the mouse is frozen.
I turn the power off, and back on and my system is functional.

However, I get the following error messages in the event log each time:
1. Session "Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D
2. The previous system shutdown at 6:07:45 AM on ‎1/‎26/‎2013 was unexpected.
3. The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
4. Session "Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D
5. Audit events have been dropped by the transport. 0

This has been going on for a while now. In an attempt to fix, using suggestions I found by Googling:
1. I have uninstalled Security Essentials, run a registry cleanup, re-started my system and reinstalled Security Essentials;
2. Removed the EppOobe.etl file and rebooted.
Neither of these worked.

Attached is a zip file created by running the SF_Diagnostic_Tool.exe. Prior to creating this file I followed the instructions from this page Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD in order to be able to create a complete dump file.
I have also entered as much information as possible about my system configuration into my profile.

A:"Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to error: 0xC000000D

After I formatted my machine I constantly had this problem and error. For a while removing the EppOobe.etl file prior to shutdown and/or rebooting was the only fix. This morning my system BSOD'd mid-game due to this bloody file/program. Not to mention MSE has been the sole cause of every issue with my machine. I've since un-installed it and installed another virus scanner all together. So far so good!

Sorry I don't have a fix for you. But I suggest downloading something else entirely.

I'm down to one last error in the Administrative Event Log. I have searched the Web for a solution and it seems there are a lot of solutions but I have yet to find one that works for me or anybody else for that matter. It has become personal! Can someone please help me get to the bottom of this error. I will supply whatever additional information is needed.

A:Session "" failed to start with the following error: 0xC000000D

Let's start with this information even though you're not having BSOD's: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html

FWIW - the C000000D error is probably an "Invalid Parameter" error - which means (to me) that something is trying to launch improperly. More info on the error will help us figure out if it's within our control (such as a setting) or out of our control (such as a bug in a program).

Hi,
 
When does the issue begin to occur?

 
Since Windows system uses separated user mode and kernel mode memory space, stop errors are usually caused by kernel portion components, such as a hardware device,
third-party drivers, backup software or anti-virus services (buggy services).
 
Please refer to the following steps to troubleshoot the issue.
 
1. Boot the computer in
Clean Boot for a test.
 
2. Temporarily disable all unnecessary hardware devices in Device Manager, such as Modem, sound card or external device.
 
For detail steps, we can refer to the link below:
 
Device Clean Boot
 
3. Upgrade the virus definition, run antivirus program and perform a full scanning.
 
If the issue persists, please upload the minidump file (%systemroot%\minidump) to SkyDrive (
www.skydrive.live.com ), then share the link to me. I will be glad to assist you to analysis the data.
 
Thanks,
Novak

Back for more and, as always, a hearty thanks to anyone willing to give of their time. For the last several months I've been running a dual boot configuration--XP Professional and Windows 7 Home Premium managed by GAG Boot Manager--on my HP Pavilion dv4 2040us with no problems. I mostly use Win 7, but roughly twice a week I'll boot into XP Pro to utilize a legacy app or just to update my anti-virus. Yesterday, 4 days since my last visit, I booted into XP Pro and was, for no reason that I can figure, confronted with the classic "We apologize for the inconvenience . . ." screen that asks if I want to start Windows normally or use the last known good configuration or start in Safe Mode or a few other options. Given that 4 days ago I booted into the XP partition with no problems I chose "Start Windows normally." However, after entering the splash screen, the dots moved across the bar below the logo for 3 complete cycles then, half-way through the forth cycle, the screen went black then reset to the Power-On password request (I have the "Power-On" password set to yes in the BIOS, so I receive this request every time I power-up). Also, it's exactly the same if I choose any of the other options, Safe Mode, last known good configuration, etc.: 3 cycles of dots then half-way through the forth cycle it resets to the Power-On password request. My last successful use of the XP partition went smoothly, and in the 4 days between visits to th... Read more

A:Suddenly Can't Boot XP Partition Of Dual-Boot Configuration

Bleeping Computer DOES NOT recommend the use of registry cleaners/optimizers for several reasons:? Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system inoperable. For a more detailed explanation, read Demystifying the Windows Registry.? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to ...

A:Can't boot into original OS after dual boot configuration

Hi All,

Thanks for your assistance. I have sorted the issue...

On installation to the SSD I set the SATA Mode in BIOS to "AHCI", whereas it was originally set to "IDE" when the first Windows installation took place (to the standard mechanical drive)!

After setting the BIOS back to "IDE" I was then able to boot into the first Windows installation (on the standard mechanical drive).

Now I just have to remember to change my BIOS before switching between OS installations.

Kind Regards,

I reinstalled Windows 7 Professional 64-bit  on a Dell E6510...  Along the way I also switched from "legacy" bootloader support to UFCI booting.
After reinstalling all the device drivers and so on, the machine works just fine - except that it won't come out of hibernation.  It hibernates just fine, but when I hit the power key it reads the hard disk for a while and then stops with:
   Windows Resume Loader
   Your computer can't come out of hibernation  Status: 0xC000000D
   Your computer will be rebooted. Any information that was not saved before the computer went into hibernation will be lost.
   Enter=Reboot
When I hit enter, after a while I get "Continue with system resume/Delete restoration data and proceed to system boot now."
I've tried a few things to fix it...
I disabled hibernation (powercfg -h off), shutdown, restarted, enabled hibernation - but that didn't fix it.
I booted off the installation disk and did bootrec.exe /RebuildBCD - but that didn't help.
I did bcdedit to delete the hibernation profile, but that didn't help.
Any suggestions from anyone?  Thank you very much.

Okay so yesterday, I was using my laptop (Asus k45vm) and things started getting laggy. It got to the point were I had to restart it and after that was when everything went downhill. I loaded up to the Windows logo and the spinning dots, didn't get further than that. So I restarted again and mashed the f8 key (I later tested out all the keys), laptop scanned and "fixed" the problem. Still didn't work. So then in a fit of rage, I pulled the battery out, it loaded to the logo screen a few times after, but now right after the Asus boot screen, the screen goes black (without any cursor). F8 (and the rest) doesn't work anymore (no more boot screen). But if I wait for 5 min , a blue screen with:Recovery

A:BSOD 0xc000000d + black screen everytime!!!!

The c000000d error is an invalid parameter was passed.
As it's related to your Boot Configuration Data, so the presumption here is that there may be a failing hard drive.

As such, the most important thing at this point is to attempt to backup your data.
You'll have to boot from a bootable disk/USB drive and then copy the files (if you can) to a removable drive.
If consistently unable to boot to a bootable disk/USB drive, then you'll have to remove the hard drive and attempt to slave it to another system in order to backup your data.

Why isn't contacting Asus an option?

Once the data is saved, then you can start with these bootable diagnostics: Initial Hardware Diagnostics

Hello
I currently have multiple Win7 x64 virtual machines that I use for capturing at the start of each year. I currently have an issue where no of them will capture, giving the same error.
I run the litetouch.vbs on the virtual machine like I have always done. I complete the wizard, choose the Capture task sequence I've set up and used previously, fill in my credentials and name the .wim that will be created. The wizard then finishes and the
lite touch process starts. It gets to the point where the system restarts and goes to boot into WinPE for the image to capture. It's a black screen with a white bar with a message above saying "Windows is loading files..."The issue appears once the
system has completed the loading phase and is about to boot into the WinPE environment.

The error that occurs is below:
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

Not sure how this really happened actually.

Earlier today I was trying to merge some partitions with Partition Magic 8.0 on my hard drive. There were two of them (disk 1). Now, I also have a 1TB disk (disk 2), with also 2 partitions C and D. C is about 880 GB-s big, and D which is about 60 GB-s has my Windows 7 installed. Now the good thing is that my brother has accidentaly installed Windows Vista on my D drive., so now I can Dual Boot, and maybe fix this problem.

While i was trying to install a program, my PS suddenly rebooted all by itself... Blue screen came up, saying some memory storage has been lest, and it's trying to recover it (not really sure about that part) .
From that point I couldn't boot on Windows 7 anymore. Tried windows repair function, couldn't repair it, and it said in log that a root cause was found and that it is "boot configuration is corrupt".

Now I am booting it on Vista, and with Acronis True Image Home, I made a backup of the D disk, because I have some imporatan files there. But when I tried I to format it, with Paragon Partition Manager 8.0, I saw that I can't do anything with my whole disk, meaning partition C and D...thus I cannot format my partition on which lies the problem.

I should also mention that while i was trying to merge the partitions on my other Hard Disk, like I mentioned earlier, with my Partition Magic, even then Disk 2 was flagged with yellow color and it said it was: "Bad".

A:Boot Configuration Database

to Bleeping Computer.

So, if I understand correctly, you only want Windows to make an image of your C: partition and NOT your E: partition. Correct?

Well, unfortunately, Windows 7 does not let you pick the partitions that it makes a system image of. You can pick parts of any drive to back up as data, but it does the partition images automatically. It's not something you can customize.

You'll have to use a third-party program (like Ghost) if you want that level of customization. Sorry.

2)two ram clocking at different speed?
Always best to have matching ram. a mismatch can cause problems in many different ways. but if you want to use the diff RAM modules together, try putting the slower (667) in the 'A' channel. the RAM will operate at the speed of the slowest module(s)

3)whether its because of any problem in my mother board
It could be the MB. it is much more likley that it is the Graphics card, especially since you said you were OC it.

Okay, it is going to sound like I am stupid, but I once set my next boot to enter to BIOS, and now I can't remember how to do it on my new laptop through Msconfig.exe

I don't know how to enter my BIOS on boot(dknow what F...)

A:Next boot to BIOS(MS-CONFIGURATION)

The manual should tell you what key to press to enter your BIOS during the POST. If you watch closely during boot up you may see a message on the screen telling you with key to press. One of the most common keys for that function is the Delete key.

Hi Guys,

Setup a test PC at work the other for Windows 7 32 Bit and Windows 7 64 Bit (dual boot). Set the dual boot up with EasyBCD. It was working fine until about 20 minutes ago.

I have tried the automatic startup repair but it does not fix the problem. I have also gone through Bootsect.exe and Bootrec.exe commands and they have succesfully written new MBR's and Bootsectors yet the PC still restarts. I have had to /force the previous commands to run.

I have also tried Chkdsk /r but for some reason it just runs through very quickly and finds no errors.

Any ideas as the PC's also have the virtual XP setup.

Thanks

Chris

A:Boot Configuration is Corrupt

If you can get to a command prompt, try running:

Drive:\boot\Bootsect.exe /NT60 All

I'm not 100% sure that this is the correct commmand for Windows 7 but it used to work for Vista with the same problem. If somebody could please confirm that this command is still good?

I have 2 harddrives on my system a 40g and a 160g. I recently reformatted the smaller drive and installed XP on it, but already had XP on the larger drive. The computer will now only boot properly if both of these drives are connected. It seems the larger drive is the boot drive but the smaller drive runs XP. When I try running XP from the larger drive, XP tries to reinstall.

A separate but related problem: I tried to format another drive recently and was unable to do so because I couldn't boot independently from one of the older drives. I know I can format it by hooking it up by itself, which I will probably end up doing.

I created a windows xp boot disk, hoping that would work, but when I use the boot disk none of my hard drives are accessible even though they are recognized by bios.

I would like to make the smaller drive my boot and XP drive without doing anything drastic at this point. In the end I may need to reformat it without the larger drive connected-- which I think should work-- but would rather try other options first.

Any ideas? And why doesn't the boot disk recognize my harddrives?

Thanks.
 

A:weird boot configuration- can I fix?

Sounds like your page file has relocated from your boot disk to your other disk.

Connect both drives and boot to windows.

Right click on My Computer and select properties.

Then click on the advance tab. Click on the settings button beside performance and then click on the advanced tab there. Beside virtual memory hit change.

(What a process eh?)

Make sure in the window the only drive that has a page file is your boot drive.

....

Now this might now be what your problem is, but it is something that has burned me with multiple drives and then I removed one.

My laptop is a Sony Vaio Z series. It is 4 years old now and out ofwarranty. It has a solid state hard drive, and runs Windows 7 Pro. Also Windows7 came preinstalled on the computer so I don’t have a disk to reinstall. I also don't want to do something that will erase my hard drive because my back up copy is about a year old.

Ican turn on the laptop, but it will not boot up. It just keeps going incircles, trying to start up, running disk checks, and doing startup repair.Every time I turn it on I get a screen, I don’t know what it means, but I haveattached a photo of it. Also, when it runs startup repair itshows a root cause of “Boot configuration is corrupt”. I’m trying to figure outif this is a Windows 7 software error, or a hardware failure causing a softwareerror.

Please look at the attached photo and help me figure out what is wrong. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
 

A:Boot configuration is corrupt

Seems to be an issue with your RAID that you have set up on the machine. It seems others have run into that same issue here. See if you can reset the error on the drive. If you're able to boot into your machine from there go to the Intel website and see if there's an update to the Intel Rapid Storage Technology.

Good day.
On system configuration, on the "Boot Tab" the window does not show my OS, and
I cannot check any of the boxes on this tab. My system still boots up OK everyday.
I have run SFC/SCANNOW earlier today, have run complete antivirus scans.
Please kindly help.

I recently added a hard drive, installed a Linux OS on it, and configured my PC to ask me which OS to run upon boot up. How do I un-do the dual-boot configuration?
 

A:want to un-do a dual-boot configuration

If you're using something like LILO or GRUB in the boot record, it should be pretty simple.

Boot from an MS-DOS floppy and type the following command.

FDISK /MBR

This replaces the boot sector with a standard one that will boot to just Windows. You can find floppy boot images at www.allbootdisks.com

Guys I'm hung on this one: I get a lot of these errors, no halts or reboots or blue/black screens.
This install is fairly new - within the last 6 months, so its not an 'old' installation of 7 or of MSE.

The many threads I've dug up on the topic including here on this forum [old] approach it from the standpoint of someone wanting to ditch MSE and try whatever. I am fine with MSE - its as bad as any of the other abandoned "AV" thingies - and it seems healthy enough.
So, how do I remedy the error, if the error is worth concern? some suggested deleting this file or that file or tweaking registry to NOT check - all of which were dismissed, it seemed, by smarter folk - it was only going to squelch the reporting, not remedy the error.

any suggestions?

I went to download a Dell printer driver on a laptop running Windows Xp Pro. The Dell support page gave 2 ways to download, one they said was recommended. So I hit the recommended download which then had me installing .net framework. The .net installation said successful and then said I needed to restart. I restarted and the Windows logon page said loading personal settings and froze (stayed in loading personal settings for a couple of hours.) Powering the laptop down using the power button, I then restarted the computer and re-logged in. Using the same user account,everything is gone. All the files from My documents and other folders that were on the desktop. The desktop background is gone, etc.

Is there anyway to retrieve a previous user configuration in Windows XP Pro?
 

A:Solved: boot with previous configuration

Try System Restore

Restore PC to an Earlier Date & Time

Go Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore
Click in the radio button Restore My Computer to An Earlier Time
Click Next
Pick a Date in Dark Blue only (pick a date to before you installed All-In-One)
Click Next
Then Next again.
This should restore the PC to that time & date

It will update and restart

I was attempting to install xp as a dual os system. After setting up my partician vista still would not let me install xp , older version error. I used a program vista bootpro or bootpro and changed my boot configuration trying to get it to allow me to install xp. Now I cant boot up my laptop. Only system info I have is toshiba, 2 years old lots of ram, How can I change my BCD back so that I can boot up vista. I tried from xp cd, safe mode, last known. I don't have the vista disk with me at the moment, Can I get it to boot up with that disk? If not how can I create a emergency boot up disk for vista?

A:Boot Configuration Data Changed

Hi,

I think you might have to wait until you get the Vista disk back.

That will just repair the boot configuration without any problem.

There are various boot disks HERE and the Ultimate Boot CD

but I`m not sure they would be much use.

There is a very good page HERE for dual booting XP/Vista

When I try to boot my Lenovo Flex 3-1580, Windows 10-64bit, I get the following BSOD: "The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.

I haven't been able to get it to try booting from a USB, but I did try reinstalling Windows. That failed when it told me to restart and it went back this issue.
When I tried to find solutions online, they all assumed the computer could boot, so were useless.
Any help is appreciated! Thank you!

A:Boot Configuration Data got corrupted

Hi toasterbot,
 
It's not an uncommon issue mate, and not that hard to fix. You will need to boot from your Windows disk to fix it .
 
Boot your computer using Windows installation media
Select the correct time and Keyboard type.
Click Repair your computer in the lower left corner.
Select Troubleshoot from Choose an option screen.
Click Advanced options in Troubleshoot screen.
Click on command Prompt.
Type these following commands one at a time and hit enter after each line of command:

Bootrec /fixmbr
Bootrec /fixboot
Bootrec /scanos
Bootrec /rebuildbcd
shutdown -s
 
After about a minute after the last command your machine will shutdown. You can remove the Windows media now.
 
Restart your machine.
 
Is your issue resolved?
 
TsVk!
