    MSCONFIG Blank Boot Tab


    I was doing some registry tweaks (nothing related to MSCONFIG, just stuff from http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/37920...indows-better/ and now, my MSCONFIG boot tab looks like this. I cannot do a system restore, and I have run an SFC scan with no integrity violations. I have not rebooted my computer since finding the error.

    I would bite the bullet and reboot, you gotta do it sometime. Do you have a disk image saved somewhere ?

    Yeah, but it's pretty old :)

    I rebooted, and nothing happened. Everything's still the same. It boots up properly, but the MSCONFIG boot tab is still blank.
    Anybody else can give advice?

    Did a Startup Repair, and it wasn't able to fix it, ran it 3 times, nothing was fixed. I wanted to send reports to Microsoft and I let it, and the error message was that the system integrity check and repair failed. I ran a SFC scan right before rebooting, and I am running it again.

    Just a thought; Folder Option. Show hidden files. While you are there check to see if their is anything else you don't want hidden.

    I've done that. Show hidden files and do not hide OS files. Haven't changed anything there in the past while.

    I found my own solution.
    So I assigned the System Reserved Partition a drive letter, and went in. Turns out that the BCD there had a backup named "BCD.Backup.0001", so I just renamed the current BCD to BCD.old and the BCD.Backup.0001 to BCD, and everything works now :)

    Did you remove the drive letter from reserve when done?
