  1. When I put in bootrec.exe /rebuildbcd it says it has identified 1 windows installation and then asks if I want to add it to the boot list. I have options yes/no/all. What do I do?

  2. On my Windows 7 ultimate the command “rebuildbcd” sometimes doesn’ t work and when it does and the bcd is rebuilt another missing file appears as a driver or another file missing yet.How can i fix it without reinstalling the operating system?I tried to update but i failed….

  3. i had 2 windows and after ” rebuild bcd” cmd said “total id wind ins = 2” and asked me to add [1] then [2]
    yes[y] or no [n] or all [a]
    i chose y in two times and the 2 windows appears now in startup

  4. Hi first command is successful but second two say the system cannot find the path specified, can you help please

  5. I have face the problem when I change the os from 10_ 7 its show boot bcd error…….if u call me plz what I do………I want your help

  6. This is the most frustrating thing ever….wtf. I bought the USB stick and I switched it to boot first. It starts the load gets to 64 bit or 32 and I pick 64 than loads a little than the black screen comes up. I can’t even get a blue screen or the logo…wtf

  7. None of this worked for me.

    Select Command Prompt (as per the video)
    Type the following followed each by enter:
