I recently ran the command bcdedit /set {default} bootstatuspolicy ignoreallfailures to ignore Windows Startup Repair.

I would now like to verify that this option was set in BCD. How can I go about verifying this?

I've tried bcdedit /enum all but I can't find the information I'm after. I just want to verify that bootstatuspolicy is set to ignoreallfailures.

After rebooting my workstation the setting shows up after running bcdedit /enum all under the Windows Boot Loader section.

Windows Boot Loader
identifier              {current}
device                  partition=C:
path                    \Windows\system32\winload.exe

locale                  en-US
inherit                 {bootloadersettings}

You can examine the complete contents of Windows 7 BCD using Visual BCD Editor.

You can also change existing values of loader elements and create new ones comfortably in a visual environment.
