Windows XP SP3
BCDEDIT /store c:\boot\bcd \bootsequence {UUID} throws Access Denied

Great forum and great posts..I'm hoping to find my answer here..Let me see if you guys are up for this challenge..

I'm trying to reload a windows xp sp3 system with 5 partitions. root partition (c:\) has bcdedit.exe and store. z:\ is application store with bunch of batch scripts.

A web application is hosted in Apache\tomcat on c:\. One of the cgi script in web application calls a batch file on z:\ drive with following command.

BCDEDIT.exe /store c:\boot\bcd \bootsequence {UUID}

I'm getting following error

The boot configuration data tore could not be opened.
A required privilege is not held by the client.

I do not see error, if command is run from command prompt with admin privilege. my web app is running under admin privileges.

Any ideas?

Best guess is EasyBCD. Personally I understand UEFI better than BIOS, which is saying a lot.
