BCD recovery via network (PXE)


New Member

I have an issue with my laptop - it does not boot from optical media of any kind.

I need to fix the 'Boot/BCD' error, I have setup the WinPE environment using Windows AIK.

When I try running EasyBCD.exe (from network share and from local C:smile:, it exits with no error/warning etc.

I've seen comments about it running in WinPE, could you help me understand how to fix the local windows installation?



More information:

the error I'm seeing is:
File: \Boot\BCD
Status: 0xC0000225
Info: An error occured while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

I've fixed the MBR, with no avail (got rid of my GRUB bootloader, but still Server 2008 wouldn't boot), I've run bootsect /nt60 C:, didn't help either.

Have you set your BIOS to boot from CD/DVD before HDD ?
