    currently using windows 8.1 OS

    Error Code: 0xc0000034

    I dont have a recovery CD or USB
    so im pretty stuck at what to do now

    Currently using an Asus U32v
    i5 2.5ghx
    6gb Ram
    500gb hd
    Geforce gt 635m 2GB

    Running "Startup Repair" using a system repair disc will fix the BCD in most cases. You need to find someone (friend/family) with a "Windows 8.1" system and create a system repair CD/USB to do the fix.

    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8

    Boot from it and run the "Automatic repair".
