    Corrupt Boot Problem


    I'll try to keep this short as possible.

    I bought parts to build a new PC. It has an SSD so it'll boot fast, and boot fast it did.

    Unfortunately, something happened a few days later (boot got corrupt someway or another) and I got this message.

    So I go about my way to restore Windows. Sucks.

    Now computer boots fine, except boot time takes twice the time loading the OS.
    I thought the boot must be broken somehow? I dunno. I restored it, so what would cause this?
    Here's a screenshot of what I got when I tried to fix it with bcdedit /enum
    It says the boot configuration store could not be opened.

    By the way, this was using the command prompt in the Windows 8 Installation disc.

    Please help. I must have restored like 3 times, and it still gives me this problem.

    OK, I know this sounds weird, but the Windows boot time is getting faster after every boot. Like, literally. The loading icon is taking less spins before Windows boots.
