    yes found this on BCD....I don't have the skills to make a menu or batch file to do this..

    • At the prompt, type the bootrec commandas shown below and then press Enter: bootrec /rebuildbcdThe bootrec command will search for Windows installations not included in the Boot Configuration Data and then ask you if you'd like to add one or more to it.
    • You should see one of the following messages at the command line.

      Option 1Scanning all disks for Windows installations. Please wait, since this may take a while... Successfully scanned Windows installations. Total identified Windows installations: 0 The operation completed successfully.Option 2Scanning all disks for Windows installations. Please wait, since this may take a while... Successfully scanned Windows installations. Total identified Windows installations: 1 [1] D:\Windows Add installation to boot list? Yes<Y>/No<N>/All<A>:If you see:

      Option 1: Move on to Step 5. This result most likely means that Windows installation data in the BCD store exists but bootrec couldn't find any additional installations of Windows on your computer to add to the BCD. That's fine, you'll just need to take a few extra steps to rebuild the BCD.

      Option 2: Enter Y or Yes to the Add installation to boot list? question, after which you should see a The operation completed successfully message, followed by a blinking cursor at the prompt. Finish up with Step 10 toward the bottom of the page.


    • 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:\bcdbackupThe 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 -sWhat 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.oldNow that the BCD store is renamed, you should now be able to successfully rebuild it, as you tried to do in Step 3.

      Note: You could delete the BCD file entirely since you're about to create a new one. However, renaming the existing BCD accomplishes the same thing since it's now unavailable to Windows, plus provides you yet another layer of backup, in addition to the export you did in Step 5, if you decide to undo your actions.
    • Try rebuilding the BCD again by executing the following, followed by Enter: bootrec /rebuildbcdwhich should produce this in the Command Prompt window: Scanning all disks for Windows installations. Please wait, since this may take a while... Successfully scanned Windows installations. Total identified Windows installations: 1 [1] D:\Windows Add installation to boot list? Yes<Y>/No<N>/All<A>:meaning that the BCD store rebuild is progressing as expected.
    • At the Add installation to boot list? question, type Enter Y or Yes, followed by the Enterkey.

      You should see this on screen: The operation completed successfully.meaning that the BCD rebuild is complete.
    • Restart your computer.

      Assuming that an issue with the BCD store was the only problem, Windows should start as expected.

      If not, continue to troubleshoot whatever specific issue you're seeing that's preventing Windows from booting normally.

      Important: Depending on how you started Advanced Startup Options or System Recovery Options, you may need to remove a disc or flash drive before restarting.
