Windows 7: no path in bcdedit

19 Aug 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional
no path in bcdedit

I have Win 7 64 bit build 7100 installed. While checking on a problem, I opened BCD and noticed that there is no path line. Is this a problem? If so, how do I repair it? Screen captures of the BCD and disk manager are attached.

Hello Soon2bexpat,

This is normal to not have a path item under the Windows Boot Manager section in BCDEDIT. You will only have one under the Windows Boot Loader section.
