    Boot configuration is missing or contains errors -

    Hey guys!

    I just messed up my only computer atm

    Firstly I created a partition of 1 GB on my 128GB OCZ Agility 3

    Then I used bitlocker to encrypt it, and then for some reason when I tried to reboot the computer after doing the aforementioned, I get the message that windows cant boot, because the boot configuration is missing or conatins errors

    I dont see how BitLocker and Disk Management can screw something up so much so that they either deleted or encrypted my boot config rendering me unable to boot up the computer.

    What I did was shrinking the c:drive by 1000mb then formatted and partitioned those 1000 mb into a new drive. Secondly I encrypted the 1gig with Bitlocker with a short 12-character password.

    I am now unable to boot up my laptop. Anyone has ANY idea what to do, I am so tired of screwing up my computers from me experimenting with various things......

    I will accept all answers with open arms!


    Thank you!!!!

    Run Startup Repair, see if that fixes it. With Windows 7 you had to do this up to 3 times, not sure if that is necessary for Windows 8.
