    boot configuration data file missing required information


    I restarted my laptop today and then I get a blue screen with the following message
    Your PC needs to be repaired
    The boot configuration data file is missing some required information
    file :\BCD
    error code: 0xc0000034

    you'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. if you don't have any installation media (like a disc or usb device), contact your system administrator or pc manufacturer.

    press esc for uefi firmware settings
