Dec 27, 2013

I have windows 8.1 and Lenovo y510. After upgrading from 8.0 to 8.1 a have several problems with my PC. Right now suddenly I cant start my PC.

I have BSOD
Your PC needs to be repaired.

The boot configuration data file is missing some required information.

Error Code:0x0000034
Need to use recovery tools on your instalation media. If you dont have any contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.

ESC for UEFI firmware setting.

I try different setting in setting utility (after pressing ESC) and nothing changed.

I dont have any USB or Disc with windows. (but i do have legal copy - it was already installed in my PC) so i cant restore pc from installation media.

Setup Installation :: Win 8 Not Loading - Boot Configuration Data File Is Missing

Aug 31, 2013

The computer is an ACER Aspire 3. 4Gb RAM. 500Gb memory.

I've been using the computer for a month and a half more or less and everything went OK only few small problems but 2 days ago. It did not Boot.When starting the PC the following appeared:

Your PC needs to be repaired

The boot configuration data file is missing some required information.
Error code: 0x000000d
You'll need to use the recovery tools on your.....

The first thing I did was creating a bootable USB with Windows 8 software, it did not work. SO i used Rufus, it worked and launched the Windows 8 installation and recovery but when I tried to recover, refresh, anything it told me the disk was locked... or anything the only thing I'm able to access is Command Prompt.

I've been trying some commands that I've seen online but no luck so far. Some commands tell me "OK, successfully something" But when reboot and I change to default the boot order and UEFI then the same error appears.

Boot Configuration Data For PC Is Missing / Errors

Aug 7, 2013

Last night I set Acronis Disk Director to merge two partitions on my C drive. I had an unnallocated 100mb that used to be partitioned as system reserved, but I deleted that partition as it was not needed. So I made a new partition out of that unallocated space and set it to merge with my primary partition on my c drive. It restarted my computer and 40% through, showed an error and restarted quickly. Now I get the following message when attempting to boot my computer:

File: BootBCD
Status: 0xc0000225
Info: The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.

The second partition, that I attempted to merge, now has 1mb of space on it. Whenever I try to run chkdsk on the primary partition, it says that the disk structure is corrupt and unreadable. I need my c drive recovered.

Setup Installation :: Boot Configuration File Missing - 0xc0000034

Jul 21, 2014

Alright, so after restarting my Toshiba Satellite L50A16H Laptop (Windows 8.1) it gave me a blue recovery screen,

it stated:
The Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information.
File: BCD
Error Code: 0xc0000034

Unfortunatly I haven't made a backup or recovery file to boot my computer from so I'm stuck with the issue of finding a windows 8 iso file that matches my system, i tried getting the windows 8 iso from microsofts website but it asks for a product key before it lets you download the file, the problem is that my product key is built into the laptop and Toshiba has not provided me with the key on a sticker on the bottom or through any other method. apparently its built into the BIOS. i have a 16gb USB stick that i can boot from. using a key finder is obviously not an option because i cant start up the laptop. I was also wondering if i manage to find a windows 8 iso file to boot from, will my toshiba laptop automatically fill in the product key for windows 8 as i dont have it.

BCD Error Boot File Missing Required Information

Mar 12, 2014

I've got a windows 8 laptop which gives me this error message when i try to switch it on:

"Your PC needs to be repaired The boot configuration data file is missing some required information.

File:BCD Error Code : 0xc000000d ............................" I'm sure you are all familiar with the rest of this dreaded error code.

I've tried all the repair options, recovery disks to a windows 8 bootable flash disk, the command prompt fix boot commands as well but still I get the same error message whenever i try to boot windows.

Now I'd like to know, can't i just copy the boot folders from another similar windows 8 pc and paste them into my harddrive to fix this?

Setup Installation :: Inaccessible Boot Device Error And Now BCD File Missing

Feb 27, 2013

I am having a problem with a new Dell Inspiron 15 3520 that came with Windows 8 installed and that I had been using for only a month when it went bad.

The problems started when I turned it off about ten days ago, and went I turned it back on a couple days later, and it was stuck in the apparently famous Windows 8 "Automatic repair couldn't repair your pc"/BSOD loop. I was not able to boot into safe mode. System restores made no difference. Somewhere along the line I found something that said that I had an "inaccessible_boot_device error".

From the repair menu maze, I was able to get to a command prompt. I used this to copy almost all of my files off of computer.

Chkdsk showed no bad sectors, no bad partition records, or other irregularities. sfc returned "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations". Some test (I do not remember which) showed that the boot record and BCD were fine. The Dell hardware diagnostic test showed everything working fine.

I am thinking that it is possible that the source of this was a virus or mechanical problem (I saw no evidence for either). If I had to guess, however, I would imagine that the computer stopped working after an automatic update pushed a corrupted/incompatible driver. I have seen discussions online about people having problems with NVIDIA video and/or SATA AHCI Controller drivers, and Windows 8 getting corrupted and stuck in the BSOD loop from that. At some point I saw a Windows Update Log (I am not sure where), that showed that, as Windows shut down the last time it was functional, automatic updates installed a new AHCI driver.

I tried downloading some new drivers for the 3520 from the Dell web site and installing them on the dead computer through a thumb drive and the command prompt. The downloads are all executables, however, and when I tried to run them, I get the message, "the subsystem needed to support the image type is not present". I believe that this message means that the driver executables are 32bit apps and won't run from a 64 bit command prompt. I also tried to use the "Drivers and Utilities" disk that came with my PC to do some driver rollbacks, but, I can't understand the file names or folder structure on the disk, and, when I try some to run some of the exe files ("setup.exe", for example) to get a gui interface, I get the "the subsystem needed to support the image type is not present" message.

After working on the problem for a while, I borrowed a friend's Windows 8 installation disk set. The computer will boot to the repair options off of the 64bit disk, but not the 32bit one. I did attempt a System Refresh off of the 64bit disk, and got back the message, "The drive where Windows in installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again."

Around the time that I was messing with the BIOS settings to get the computer to boot off of the Windows 8 disk, I started getting a message "Your PC needs to be repaired - Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information -- File:BCD -- error code 0xc0000034" at the start of my boot ups. I am not sure if I deleted a file somewhere during my repair efforts, or if I am getting this message because the computer is confused in efforts trying to boot off of the DVD. I get this message even with the DVD removed and the BIOS set to boot off of the Windows Boot Manager, however, so I am guessing that a file is now missing. And the message stops me from getting into the repair menus/command prompt any other way except through the installation disk.

Boot Configuration Is Missing Or Contains Errors

Apr 9, 2013

Firstly I created a partition of 1 GB on my 128GB OCZ Agility 3

Then I used bitlocker to encrypt it, and then for some reason when I tried to reboot the computer after doing the aforementioned, I get the message that windows cant boot, because the boot configuration is missing or conatins errors

I dont see how BitLocker and Disk Management can screw something up so much so that they either deleted or encrypted my boot config rendering me unable to boot up the computer.

What I did was shrinking the c:drive by 1000mb then formatted and partitioned those 1000 mb into a new drive. Secondly I encrypted the 1gig with Bitlocker with a short 12-character password.

I am now unable to boot up my laptop.

BSoD Boot Error 0xc0000034 / Missing Boot Files

Sep 15, 2014

Earlier, about an hour ago, I left to go job searching, and left my computer in hibernate mode so I could bring it back up as soon as I got back. When I tapped keys on the keyboard, the computer powered up as usual, but it brought up the BSoD, stating it was missing files.

Prior to receiving this error, everything was working fine. I even set it to hibernate mode during the night, and it powered on this morning without any problems. I dunno if it's the multimedia keyboard I'm using or what that caused it.

I don't have an installation disc (since I bought it from Fry's Electronics about a year ago with 8 pre-installed), and neither do I have a recovery disc (since I didn't know how to make one.

Computer info: Windows 8 x64
Manufacturer: ASUS

how to fix the missing boot files, and how to do it without causing any data loss from either of my hard drives.

7 Data Files Processed - Error Detected In Uppercase File

Aug 15, 2014

I recently installed some updates on my laptop (running windows 8.1) which required a restart. Upon restarting however I received the following error message: wheauncorrectableerror. I tried to start up in safe mode, but to no avail, I still got the same message. I tried to restore the system to before the update, but that failed. I ran command prompt with chkdsk and it failed stage 3, with the following error: "7 data files processed. Errors detected in the uppercase file." I'm not sure what that means. Is the problem with the hardrive?

Maintenance :: Windows 8 - Missing File / BCD Error Code 0xc0000034

May 26, 2014

I have tried to start up my PC recently and I get the message that my boot system has failed due to the fact it's missing the file "BCD".

I have contacted the microsoft company to report this issue, no support without my product code, or a disc/USB with the windows 8 system on it.

I have none of these and yet my issue still remains. My PC has worked perfectly the day before I shut it down. I'm trying very hard to restore my system but all I can find of the ways to restore it is by clicking control panel, etc...

I cannot access my laptop's desktop all I get is this error message and options to enter the setup utilities, firmware and boot options.

In all I'm asking for is, is there a way to restore my system from any of these options or is this another toss away laptop because windows 8 has failed to find this missing file?

I cannot get a replacement because I do not have the key with me that was used to install the operating system. This is all very frustrating and not to mention my job relies on this computer so it's putting everything to risk with my situation right now.

Debugging :: BSOD - Kernel Data Inpage Error

Mar 15, 2014

I have started having BSODs since last week. They seemingly seem to occur at random after using my computer around an hour. My computer is 2 years old, and I have never had problems with it, nor have I made any changes in the last weeks.

I have run chkdsk on both my drives, and they do not have any problems. I have also run a memorycheck (3 runs) and everything seems to be fine there as well.

After the first BSOD last week, my computer did not want to start up anymore, since for some reason my SSD was not the designated boot drive anymore. After changing this back it starts though, only to crash after a while again.

I have used the SF Debug tools, since my computer for some reason does not create dumpfiles in the designated folder.

Debugging :: BSOD Kernel Data Inpage Error

Feb 1, 2014

I've been working on my mothers laptop and she has a HP Pavilion G6-1C51NR. She told me her laptop was a bit slow, so I decide to upgrade her to Win 8.1 from Win 7. I did a fresh install of Win 8 then updated to Win 8.1, now here is the weird part. Every time I boot the Laptop I get the Kernal Data Inpage Error once, then it restarts itself and it normally boots into the OS and I am able to use the laptop fine. This never happened when she had Win 7 on her laptop, and she had no viruses either. It started to happen ever since I installed Win 8 to her laptop, it happened on Win 8 and on 8.1. I have even re-installed the OS multiple times to see if it fixes it, but nope still has the issue.

Debugging :: Assembled New PC - Kernel Data Inpage Error In Windows 8

Mar 9, 2014

I recently built a new PC and I'm having trouble figuring out if the cause of the crash is the mobo, the ram, or the SSD, or the pagefile. I ran memtest and one of the sticks of ram came back with errors so I've taken that out but I don't know if it was the stick or the port the stick was in, I plan on checking that soon.

I don't know how to check to see if the SSD is faulty.

When the crash occurs the audio cuts out and all of the USB devices turn off, Windows 8 then says an audio device was unplugged. Then it cuts to the BSoD. Windows doesn't create a memory dump, I followed the guide in the sticky.

Motherboard: Sabertooth 990fx
CPU: AMD FX-8350
GPU: GTX 770
RAM: G-Skill F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro

All my drivers are up to date.

Debugging :: BSOD No Dump - Kernel Data Inpage Error - New SSD

Jul 10, 2014

So for the past 8 days I've been getting BSOD's (Kernel Data Inpage Error) randomly about once a day, without any dumps or logs being created, despite the settings being right and WERS service running.

Two weeks ago my 2 year old SSD (Corsair Force GT) died. Bios would freeze at around 70% when trying to boot off it, other computers wouldn't recognize it, it was basically bricked (i suspect the controller, since I only had it for 2 years, and only used for OS). So I sent it back, and they ended up giving me a different model (Corsair Force GS).

I performed a fresh install of Windows 8.1 Pro x64 on the new SSD, and ever since then I've been having the BSOD's. At first I suspected a driver problem, but Windows says all drivers are up to date and there's another weird thing happening: after the BSOD, when restarts and tries to boot up again, the BIOS freezes at around 70% again (around the time when it communicates with the default boot device), and I have to manually shut it down (from the power button), and turn it back on again(this time it works fine, and writes the 'Event 41, Kernel Power' event to logs).

I suspect it's the SSD again, but I can't explain it. It's been driving me crazy for the past week, especially since I also use this laptop (Acer Aspire 5737z) for work.

Missing Data From Wordpad Docs?

Jan 2, 2014

A little while ago i opened up one of my wordpad documents that was 7 pages long and to my great surprise all the data i had previously saved in this document was missing! I swear i did not delete the 7 pages of data myself. Today i opened up another wordpad document and guess what all the data i had saved in this doc was no longer there too! Is there any way of retrieving the lost data or is it lost for good? I repeat i definitely did not delete the data knowingly myself.
