    \Boot\BCD Missing file In win8


    Hello
    I have purchased a notebook(ASUS) in which Win8 had already installed . So no key or backup or no cd/dvd was provided and i did'not make any recovery/backup.
    But few day's ago the \Boot\BCD\ (code:0xc000000d) is missing so that windows is not opening and a blue screen with this issue open.
    So, what could i do to save my geniune window, i have only concerned with that geniune issue, it's is not important to recover my data . how can i save my geniune window
    So,please guide and give me proper method to solve this problem.

    You have to at least have a recovery CD/USB to boot into command screen and attempt the repairs. Do you at have this?

    Also, if it came with 8 installed there is possibly a recovery partition. Try tapping F9 very quickly at boot.

    Did you try tapping F9 at boot? You have to do it very quickly, may take several tries. The recovery partition may be there, you don't see it unless using disk management in Control Panel.

    You didn't answer if it came with 8 or it was an upgrade. If upgrade you are out of luck. What model is it? Did you buy new or used?

    If it came with 8 then that is what it will recover to, you'll lose everything. Did you select "Trouble Shoot"?

    Sorry, not sure what you are asking. The key you see in computer properties is not the real key, the real key is burned in the chip.
    What are you asking is missing?
