    Cannot Start PC: Missing Boot Configuration Data


    Windows version: 10.0.19041.631 I reinstalled windows 10 with the keep data and app option a week ago. Today, a BSOD happened and it was something like "page fault in nonpaged area". I forgot to record down the specific message. Now I cannot start my PC at all. I get this 0xc0000098 error on every boot: I have tried the following in order: I have tried step #1,2,3,4 here: How to Fix Windows Boot Error 0xc0000098 Quickly In fix #3, Bootrec /fixboot gave me "Access denied" so I stopped there.I have also tried the solution involving diskpart suggested by u/Tekkie_Boy here: Windows Says Boot File is Missing | Error Code 0xc0000098 : Windows10 I got "Boot files created successfully" but the same error occurs after windows is restarted.Bootrec /rebuildbcd gives me "the requested system device cannot be found" after it finds 1 identified Windows installation and saying yes to installing it to boot list.Macrium Reflect Rescue USB's "Fix Windows boot problems" option didn't work. Could someone help me please.

    :)

    The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors

    To topgundcp.

    I followed your instructions but Macrium could not find an operating system. See image below.

    I pressed next anyway and selected C: and pressed next again.

    I ran the fix and everything seems to have worked fine. I then restarted my computer.

    Any idea on what to do next?



    To dalchina.

    Here's the result from the HD Tune Health tab.


    Cannot Start PC: Missing Boot Configuration Data [​IMG]


    I am currently doing an error scan with no damaged blocks after 15 minutes. I will leave it on and come back later and post the result.



    To bro67.

    Thank you for your suggestion. I will try it after the error scan is completed and post the results.



    So to summarize I currently have this error when trying to boot my computer.

    Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
    <Windows root>\system 32\hal.dll.

  3. Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information WINDOWS 10

    Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information

    Upon reboot, I ge the following message:
    "Recovery
    Your PC needs to be repaired
    The Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information.
    File: \BCD
    Error Code: 0x000000d

    You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media, If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer."

    I've followed steps of doing bootrec/rebuildbcd - it says "add installation to boot list? Yes(Y)/No(N)/All(A) - I've tried to select Yes and All but it comes up with the requested system device cannot be found.

    I really don't want to lose my data so any suggestions would be great?
