    Error 0x0000034 - Boot Configuration Data File is Missing

    Hi everyone,

    I have windows 8.1 and Lenovo y510. After upgrading from 8.0 to 8.1 a have several problems with my PC. Right now suddenly i cant start my PC.

    I have BSOD
    Your PC needs to be repaired.

    The boot configuration data file is missing some required inforamtion.

    Error Code:0x0000034
    Need to use recovery tools on your instalation media. If you dont have any contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.

    ESC for UEFI firmware setting.

    I try different setting in setting utilty (after pressing ESC) and nothing changed.

    I dont have any USB or Disc with windows. (but i do have legal copy - it was already installed in my PC) so i cant use any of help with restoring pc from instalation media.

    Do you have any idea what to do ?
    Thank you very much. A need it pretty serious that pc because of school

    From the Repair CD/USB:
    How to do a Auto Repair:
    Automatic Repair - Run in Windows 8
    Note: You may need to do startup repair 3 to 4 times.

    Have you made the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?

    information   Information

    We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
    & made the Startup Repair CD. (Windows 8 only)
    Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
    System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8 (Windows 8 only)

    I would recommend you making the OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD's or USB drive.
    You can order the Microsoft official OEM Recovery disks from the OEM manufacturer's website.
    From the manual for Lenovo G480.

    Hi, thanks for help, but I cant use any of it right now.

    I dont have USB/CD ( I have read somewhere I can make my own repairing USB, but right now I dont have PC manual with me, so i cant 100% tell, if there is windows product key, which is must for making own repair USB.)
    I cant access anything only BSOD and "Setup Utility" (where is nothing at all)
    I never made OEM manufacturer's Recovery DVD
