Do you want me to go for all the commands one after the other and give you the all the errors at once , or should I send you errors once command at a time?

Below is the first error I got

C:\windows\system32>
C:\windows\system32>bcdedit/set {7d6a7bc4-ade8-11df-a9e9-002454733de7} ramdisksd
idevice p:
The device is not valid as specified.
Run "bcdedit /?" for command line assistance.
The parameter is incorrect.

Code:
bcdedit/delete {7d6a7bc4-ade8-11df-a9e9-002454733de7}
Afterwards do #22 (I changed it) again and proceed. No errors should occur! So if error.... stop and post.
