I was trying to add Debian 7 boot entry to Windows boot menu using easyBCD. I accidentally deleted the Window 8 entry from the list now I get a BCD error when trying to boot. Error code 0x000098

How can I edit the BCD store from outside. I tried BCDedit and rebuildbcd from repair which shows an error, can't identify the specified drive

Where is the BCD file located in the ESP partition? I can find one in \EFI\BOOT\Microsoft\Boot and one in \Boot

Another thing, I read somewhere the Windows boot manager is bootmgfw.efi. I can't find the specified file in \EFI\BOOT\Microsoft\Boot, instead there is a bootmgr.efi. Is it the same file?

When I tried efibootmgr -v from Linux it shows:

Try running the Automatic Repair, It automatically fixes most of boot issues. And That'll also work in your case. And most of the time it ends up with an error, Reboot to see if the boot is fixed. –  Saurabh Sharma Mar 6 at 14:57
    
The Windows boot loader is indeed \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi, not bootmgr.efi. If it's missing, then that's the problem (or at least part of it). Booting a Windows recovery tool and using its automatic recovery option should restore this file. –  Rod Smith Mar 22 at 13:42
