Hi everyone,
this is my problem. When I try to boot my laptop, this error shows up:

The Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information.

File: \BCD
Error Code: 0xc0000034
I do not have any recovery/installation media to solve this, because the OS is OEM.
Any solutions?

Do you have a recovery partition on your computer to restore to original factory state?


Did you able to enter into safe mode?

Can you post the brand and model name or number of the notebook for us olivercatroya.


Windows media may be required in order to resolve this, if you have access to a working computer that has internet connection see here
