Hi Freebooter,

The 1st command worked but the attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s command did not. “ Path not found -  c:\boot “ Re-post under my username: System restore problems - Page 4 1f62a

My bad i forget that the C: drive letter is assign to Windows 10 installed partition.  

You will have to use Diskpart command to find out the System Reserved partition drive letter and replace all C: drive letter with System Reserved partition drive letter.


From Command Prompt  execute below commands:

Code:


Diskpart

List Volume


The output of the above commands may display the name of the System Reserve partition as only System.

I am sorry for so many questions, but I just don’t want to do the wrong thing...this is what came up after the last prompts:

Volume 0.  C. Windows.        NTFS. Partition. 27GB. Healthy  not hidden 
Volume 1.                            FAT32 Partition. 260MB. Healthy. Hidden
Volume 2.  D. Windows RE.   NTFS. Partition.  979MB. Healthy. Hidden

DISKPART>

Please give me time to type instructions for you on how to assign drive letter to volume 1 and use dir command to find out if volume 1 contains BCD file if it does then you can use Volume 1 drive letter.

From Command Prompt type following commands:

1. Type diskpart and press Enter.

2. Type list volume and press Enter.

3. Note Volume 1 corresponding Volume number.

4. Now type select Volume=N and press Enter, where N is the Volume number you noted earlier in your case it was number 1.

5. Now type assign letter=w and press Enter.

6. Type exit and press Enter.

7. Type Dir /A /B W:\boot\bcd command and press Enter.

If Dir command founds BCD file at W: volume (partition) use the W: drive letter to replace C: drive letter to execute below commands:


Since the BCD store exists and lists a Windows installation, you'll first have to "remove" it manually and then try to rebuild it again. At the prompt, execute the bcdedit command as shown and then press Enter:

bcdedit /export c:\bcdbackup

The bcdedit command is used here to export the BCD store as a file: bcdbackup. There's no need to specify a file extension.

The command should return the following on screen:
The operation completed successfully.

Meaning the BCD export worked as expected.

At this point, you need to adjust several file attributes for the BCD store so you can manipulate it. At the prompt, execute the attrib command exactly like this:

attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s

What you just did with the attrib command was remove the hidden, read-only, and system attributes from the file bcd. Those attributes restricted the actions you could take on the file. Now that they're gone, you can manipulate the file more freely - specifically, rename it.

To rename the BCD store, execute the ren command as shown:

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

Now that the BCD store is renamed, you should now be able to successfully rebuild it.

Try rebuilding the BCD again by executing the following, followed by Enter:

bootrec /rebuildbcd

Restart your computer after rebuilding the BCD store.

If the Dir command cannot found BCD file please let me know.

Couldn’t get past Dir /A /B W:\boot\bcd command...”The System cannot find the file specified”

To be clear, I entered:(italic words,letters, numbers are what I actually typed and bold is computer)
DISKPART> select Volume 1
Volume 1 is the selected volume.
DISKPART> assign letter=w
Diskpart successfully assigned the drive letter or mount point.
DISKPART> exit
Leaving DiskPart...


X:\windows\system32>Dir /A /B W:\boot\bcd
The system cannot find the file specified.
