    your PC needs to be repaired


    Hi, my first post on this forum so please be patient. My daughters Windows 8 laptop is now displaying "The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contain errors".

    File:\Boot\BCD
    Error code: 0xc00000001

    I can get access onto F2 but that's all.

    please help!!

    Sounds like your bootmgr is corrupted. Have you done anything unusual prior to this happening? Did you make any prior images of the system that you could restore?

    Unfortunately no. It's a notebook that only has a mouse connected via USB and I haven't done anything different in the past couple of days.
