    Info: The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors

    I booted in recovery mode but I can't make a system recovery drive on a USB because it says the boot files are missing. And I don't have a recovery disk because SAMSUNG ATIV 6 doesn't have a disc drive. I've been searching the web for a recovery disc download to no avail. Doesn't anyone know what I should do?

    There are downloadable versions of Windows repair discs.
    Download the repair disc of the same version of Windows that you have installed (including 32 bit/64 bit) and boot from it then select the automatic repair function. It may need to be run up to 3 times to fix everything.
