    Internal hard disk drive not found

    Hey all I have an Alienware X51 R3 and I was messing with my command prompt and accidentally changed what I believe is the path too boot my hard drive... In the command prompt I said
    bcdedit /set {bootmgr} path \EFI\

    I then reset my computer and now I get a "Internal hard disk drive not found to resolve this issue, try to reseat the drive. No bootable devices. Strike F1 to retry boot, F2 enter Setup Menu, F5 enter PSA"

    I don't know what to do, I can boot my Linux OS by inserting my USB and I can mount my HDD and will have access to all the files in my drive.

    I have no idea how to fix this, my computer will boot and instantly give that message unless I have my USB in to auto boot the Linux OS.How can I fix the path back to my HDD? Can I change anything in my hard drive through my Linux OS and make it work again? I don't even know how I would be able to reformat if I had no other option. What an I do?

    This is my bootmgr entry, this is if you have a recovery partition as your first volume. If your boot partition is the first partition then the device value will end in HarddiskVolume1.

    You probably just need to re-point path to the efi file.

    Windows Boot Manager

    identifier {bootmgr}

    device partition=\Device\HarddiskVolume2

    path \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\bootmgfw.efi

    description Windows Boot Manager

    locale en-US

    inherit {globalsettings}

    default {current}

    resumeobject {14105cca-1b7b-11e6-8afe-e38650dc991f}

    displayorder {current}

    toolsdisplayorder {memdiag}

    timeout 30

    I'm not sure what to do at this point. Which volume is my boot? I know volume 1 is my main HD since its the largest one.
