One never knows when it becomes an issue! My first preference would be to resolve that first.

Task-1 Taking Cover : Create System Restore point.

Create System Restore Point in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

( Just look there & continue here, I have narrowed down things as suitable for you )

(a) Press Win+X to open Power User Tasks Menu, click/tap on System.
(b) Click/tap on the System protection link on the left side.
(c) If prompted by UAC, click/tap on Yes.
Make sure that you have system protection turned on for C:
(e) When ready to create a restore point, click/tap on the Create button
(f) Type a description you want to help you identify the restore point
(g) Click/tap on Create
(h) Windows System Protection will now create a restore point
(i) When successfully created, click/tap on Close
(J) You can now close the System Properties window

TASK-2 The Portable Utility : EasyBCD

Download EasyBCD zip & extract it to a folder.

Attachment 405574

TASK-3 Resolving BCD Issue

Be a little careful from here!

(a) Go to the EasyBCD folder & execute EasyBCD.exe
(b) Select YES at prompt
(c) Press OK at prompt
Click BCD Backup/Repair

Attachment 405576

(e) Choose the location for the BCD Backup other than c: , take note of the location & then press Backup Settings Button.

Attachment 405577

(f) Now press Perform Action button.

Attachment 405578

(g) Now follow as in image : Take care for points 1, 2 & 3

Attachment 405579

(h) Now close the EasyBCD box.

It's done! Now restart pc & check the BCD error from now on wards.

Let us know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi All,
Greets,
@SweeX : Sir,

i wanted to say that i don't want to make a system restore and i fixed the windows 10 BCD Error with EasyUEFI. also, what do i need to do with EasyBCD?
1.
(a) I asked you to make a System Restore Point only as a cover/precaution, as i was trying to resolve the BCD error with EasyBCD. I thought if something goes wrong, you can restore the system back to the working status. It is always good to make System Image(s) but if you don't, at least make a new System Restore Point just before trying anything else.
(b) The objective of EasyBCD was to resolve the BCD error. Because one never knows when it becomes critical! I will insist on getting your system free of any type of BCD/ Booting errors. If EasyUEFI has done it for you, you don't need EasyBCD as of now! [ EasyUEFI Free offers a very limited functionality & Trial for full/professional version ends 15 days & you probably running a trial version , Isn't it ? ]
(c) Once you get rid of BCD/Boot errors, use EasyUEFI to Backup EFI System Partition. Take a note of the location where the backup is saved, Save it to other than c: & keep a copy of it safely for the future! The Backing Up & Restoring EFI System Partition is supported on free version as well.
(d) I would advise to Backup BCD with EasyBCD as well & keep it safely somewhere!

2. To Backup BCD with EasyBCD:

(a) Download EasyBCD.zip & extract it to a folder :
https://www.sevenforums.com/attachme...on-easybcd.zip
(b) Follow TASK-3 : (a) to (e) & close EasyBCD here :
\EFI\BOOT\BCD Error While Booting On Windows 7 USB Installation

3. Have you done it all ? Should we proceed with preparing the windows 7 USB installation media ? It would need a USB Pen Drive & all the data on it will be erased/lost.

Let us know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Hi All,
@SweeX : Sir,

1. i've backup my BCD with EasyUEFI Portable (note that the normal version won't open)
(a). EasyBCD Portable & EasyUEFI are two independent/different softwares.
(b). I suggested you to backup BCD with EasyBCD & back up EFI System Partition with EasyUEFI , once the BCD errors fixed.
(c). What do you mean by '' the normal version won't open '' ? Do you mean to say that you are not able to backup EFI System Partition with EasyUEFI ?

2. As i recall you have already disabled Fast Boot & Secure Boot in the Bios. And also disabled Fast Startup in/from win 10.

3. You have UEFI + GPT configuration on your pc & I will help you make the installation media properly. Just be ready with a USB 2.0 pen drive of 8gb or more capacity.
( win 7 doesn't support USB 3.0 out of the box, So, to avoid any problems use USB 2.0 pen drive & USB 2.0 Port for win 7 installation media )

4. What are your plans for win 7 ? You don't want to make & use a separate partition for win 7 on your current internal hard disk ? Are you having a second internal hard disk option in your pc/mother board ? What are your plans ? Do you just want to make it certain that you can boot into win 7 installation media & that is all ? Why do you think that you can't get win 7 to work on this pc ? ( There are good reasons that you can run windows 7 on this pc! )

Let us know.

Thanks & Regards. ...
