BCD Locked or Missing

Hello guys, here's the deal, i've installed Android X86 using the provided tool that changed the BCD, and now after Android's gone the boot stills show the Android boot, tried to delete it from Msconfig and with the bcdedit but the command shows this error and the msconfig it's all blanked out with the configs locked.

"Could not open the store boot configuration data (BCD).
The system can not find the file specified."



Any workaround?? Thanks!

Confirm that the 100 mb System Reserved partition (preferred if you have it) or C (if not) is Partition Marked Active
then run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times.

If listing remains install EasyBCD (click Download - no Name or Email required) to delete the entry from Edit Boot Menu tab.

I tried but ended on bootmgr failure, tried all the fixes given but no good, the fix was disconnecting the secondary hard drive and doing all the repair procedures.

Everything's working now

Sorry but since there was no mention of the second drive we did not know to tell you to unplug it.

It's possible you have old boot files on the secondary drive so plug it back in and post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image so we can look it over for you.

I should have asked for one in the beginning because about half the time it's wrong.

Hi there, I'm still very happy with my XP Pro, but I thought I'd set up a dual boot with Win7 ultima 64 and check it out. So I popped in another hdd that was sitting idly in a drawer and installed 7 on it. I fully expected that Win7 would be able to see there's an XP installation and create a...
