    "Recovery
    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 Fireware settings"

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!


    You can make a startup repair drive on another Win8 computer
    But you cannot reinstall Windows with this repair drive.

    To make the repair drive, go to Start and type in "recoverydrive" (without the quotes)
    Uncheck the box for copying the recovery partition as it won't be needed (it won't work)
    Then boot from the drive to perform Startup Repair/Automatic Repair.
    More details here: Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8

    If you need to reinstall Windows, then you'll need a copy of Windows to install.
