My Windows 8 laptop has a boot problem. When Windows tries to boot, I get this error message:
Boot configuration data is missing File: \BCD Error code: 0xc0000034
So as suggested I booted to the console and tried:
bootrec /fixmbr bootrec /fixboot bootrec /scanos bootrec /rebuildbcd
After the last command I got:
Total identified win installations:1  C:\Windows Add installation to boot list?
y so I want to add installation, but got a reply:
The requested system device cannot be found.
As a solution I found a diskpart - select and activate OS partition, so I selected OS partition and typed:
I got a reply that:
The selected disk is not a fixed MBR disk. The active command can only be used on fixed MBR disks.
How to fix this problem, to get Windows 8 boot properly? My laptop is a repair of a previously working PC.
