    I don't think so.

    I deleted bootnxt.

    Still got the ui boot menu.

    bootnxt still not there.

    Yes but you have to make sure you are running the Windows 8 bcdboot so use the fully qualified path like

    c:\windows\system32\bcdboot.exe c:\windows /s c: /v

    This assumes that c:\windows is 8 and c: is the boot volume

    You can run it from winre. What's easy? I've run it from a plain old elevated command prompt within standard mode 8.

    It's a placeholder for UEFI boots like io.sys and msdos.sys used to be placeholders in the system root

    It's just a clue as to whether the bootfiles were copied to the system root correctly by 8

    Yes, so you don't need bootnxt .

    Either way you need an active partition on the bios or uefi boot disk with bootmgr/bootnxt and a valid bcd store
    That bcdboot command is the same as the one you did earlier.

    It should use the system volume as default target .

    EasyBCD Command prompt.

    I ran from Elevated CMD in Win8. Results:

    Should, but doesn't always.

    That 0x5 is access denied to c:\boot. Try from WinRE

    Why do you have a 100MB reserved partition when 8CP creates a 350MB partition? Looks like a Win 7 reserved. So C: is 8 and you have no 350MB reserved partition created by 8, correct? You have boot and recovery directories on c:, right?
