    Default EasyBCD Error?!?

    When I start easybcd an error window pops up with the message (red cross on the side): "EasyBCD has detected that your BCD boot data and MBR are either not from the lates version of Windows vista, or don't yet exist. If you would like Easy BCD to correct these issues press OK....." Even after I press OK, EasyBCD is unable to fix the problem. The following is what I get when I try to run bcdedit:

    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.0.6000]
    Copyright (c) 2006 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
    C:\Windows\system32>bcdedit.exe /enum
    The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
    The requested system device cannot be found.

    EasyBCD will not start. It appears I have a corrupt BCD registry that EasyBCD is not able to correct.

    What should I do?

    Well do you have Vista installed? This is a error that comes up when people are trying to use this with only XP.

    If you do have Vista intalled Repair the bootloader.
