    Windows 8 boot error 0xc000000f


    My PC was running a Windows 8/Linux Mint dual boot. I deleted the Linux Mint partition, which apparently angered my Windows boot loader. Now when I try booting Windows, it gives me the error "The boot configuration data for your PC is missing or contains errors. File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD Error code: 0xc000000f"

    I installed Linux again to get its boot loader back, but selecting Windows from the boot menu is no longer working since the boot file listed above isn't working correctly. I've attached a screenshot of my partitions that I took in Linux Mint. The highlighted partition is Linux Mint and the partition above it is Windows 8. I want to delete Linux Mint and get my Windows boot loader running again. What should I do?

    Try removing the boot flag from sda5.

    You might need to run startup repair from win8 install media/recovery cd afterwards.

    Thanks for the help. Turns out the boot flag in sda5 was the problem after all. After I removed that, I ran all 4 bootrec commands in the Windows recovery CD and that fixed it.
