bcdedit store parameter

I am trying to follow the instructions in the "Recovering the Vista Bootloader from the DVD" article but when I get to the step 'bcdedit.exe /store c:\boot\bcd.temp /create {bootmgr} /d "Windows Boot Manager"', bcdedit gives me an error message stating "The specified store parameter is not valid. Run bcdedit /? for command line assistance."

When I run bcdedit /?, there is no "store" parameter. There is a "sysstore" parameter but when I substitute for the "store" parameter in the command line, I get the message "The set system store device command is invalid."

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Tom

It would seen the /createstore command you performed earlier failed?

I am having the same problem but the previous command says it completed correctly:

c:\winpe_amd64>Bcdedit /createstore c:\winpe_AMD64\mount\boot\BCD
The operation completed successfully.

Any other ideas?

Can you copy and paste the command that gives you an error here, exactly as you typed it in?
 
#5
c:\winpe_amd64>Bcdedit /store c:\winpe_AMD64\mount\boot\BCD -create {bootmgr} /d
"Boot Manager"
The specified store parameter is not valid.
Run bcdedit /? for command line assistance.

Maybe that file already existed before you created it with /createstore?

Don't know if you're allowed to mix "/store" and "-create" (with the / and the -)
