    bcdedit: The boot configuration data store could not be opened


    I used Macrium Reflect to clone a disk onto another disk and now all BCD data has disappeared. When I run bcdedit, I get this:

    The boot configuration data store could not be opened.
    The system cannot find the file specified.

    EasyBCD doesn't find a file either.

    Should I run bootrec /rebuildbcd?

    Or do I have to do the sequence of:

    bootrec /fixmbr
    bootrec /fixbcd
    bootrec /scanos
    bootrec /rebuildbcd

    Any other ideas before I run the above?

    Also x:\boot\bcd is missing on all 3 disks that are bootable with Windows 10 (they are all clones).

    And these are the bootable disks, C:, G: and F:

    There is also this procedure:

    I am not suggesting using bcdedit commands. I am providing a method for escaping the Safe mode boot loop you are stuck in, "Is there any other way to get back into the computer?".

    bcdedit: The boot configuration data store could not be opened

    HyperSLI (Enabling SLI on non-sli motherboards)

    I'm getting the "unable to find boot information" error.
    I have assigned the hidden partition to a drive letter, but bcdedit still shows
    "the boot configuration data store could not be opened"

    If I manually do it with bcdedit /enum /store i:\boot\bcd, it will show the boot info.

    I have multiple HDD setup, one holds grub bootloader, then another drive has windows on it. I'm guessing this is part of the problem? Any ideas?
