Q: Windows 8 -Boot Error -> File: \BCD Error code: 0xc0000034

Windows 8, "File: \BCD Error Code: 0xc0000034"


Good Day Everyone,

Trying to resolve this error:



I have a Window 8 recovery USB and a Windows 8.1 recovery USB both from another laptop...

Mine are 32 bit machines, if the laptop i am working on is 64 bit will it boot on my USB recovery that is from a 32 bit machine? My buddy doesn't know if this troubled laptop is 32 or 64 bit

When I use the recovery usb and try a refresh or a comlete format it comes back telling me the drive is locked and stops in its tracks.

Also from a the dos command window (from the recover usb advanced option section) i have tried the following with NO success...

Bootrec /fixmbr - successful but didn't help
Bootrec Fixboot - successful but didn't help
Bootrec - RebuildBCD - Goes off searching, comes back with 1> C:windows, I type Y to add it but it comes back with an error "The requested system device can not be found"

I also tried BCDboot c:\windows\ /s c: /l en-us - said it was successful but still didnt fix the boot problem.

So i am not sure if I am running into a 32 bit vs 64 bit issue or if i need to find a way to unlock my drive so the refresh will work?? Or...?????

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated!!

This is on an Acer Aspire V3-551

Regards,
Darren Vaillant

Preferred Solution: Windows 8 -Boot Error -> File: \BCD Error code: 0xc0000034

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all! I have a Cambrio W101 V2 RCA 10 inch tablet. After installing webcam drivers from RCA customer service, a few reboots later I recieved a BSOD that included the message "Press Windows key for UEFI Firmware settings." And also, File:\EF\Microsoft\Boot\BCD Error Code 0xc0000034. I got this tablet from a friend and do not have any kind of installation media, and neither does the friend who gave the tablet to me. What options do I have? Can I download the installation files to a flash drive from Microsoft? Thanks in advance to any replies! Look forward to hearing from you guys/gals!

OK, so I've been bad. I bought a new computer about 8 weeks ago and didn't get around to creating a recovery disk. Also I just moved, and didn't get around to shifting my online backup from my old computer to the new one yet.

But what could go wrong, right?

So after hours on the phone to Costo and Dell they are sending me something so I can reformat/reinstall windows. Losing several thousand photographs (some I have orders for). That was their best suggustion.

No matter now many times I reboot (pounding F8, or Shift F8) all I get is the above screen.

I can get to a hardware test that runs with no errors found. And I can thumb my way through the bios, and make changes.

But there seems to be no way to get to a safe mode, or repair mode, or a Last Known Good Configuration mode.

I really don't want to write off several thousand pictures. Well, the hassle of reinstalling all the software and plugins sucks too, but I can survive that.

Serves me right for not being on the ball with disaster recovery plans...

After shutting down because of nonresponding applications, I started to the computer again to find the computer would not fail on automatic fix, after going through this several times I was presented with a BSOD on BSOD on File:\ BCD error code 0xc0000034, I do not have an installation cd, the computer was preinstalled with Win8, Lenovo G580, I wouldn't like to lose my files, tweaks, and preferences, I am writing this from a separate computer, I cannot use my computer so I can't use the diagnostic tool.

A:BSOD on File:\ BCD error code 0xc0000034

For starters:





At work we start all repairs with a set of diagnostics. Often they find problems that weren't even expected. It's a waste of time to try to fix software on a system that has hardware problems.
Please try these free diagnostics for starters: Initial Hardware Diagnostics
Also, please ensure that you have ALL available Windows Updates (it may take several trips to get them all).



Looks like a BCD error that can probably be fixed by using Startup Repair.
Did you create the system recovery disks that the system asks for when you first started it?

If not, do you have access to another Win8 computer?
If so, do this:






2) Create a Repair disc:
Win8 - Press "WIN" and "R" to open the Run dialog...type "RECDISC" (without the quotes) and press ENTER



You can boot from the Startup Repair disc and have it attempt to repair the BCD (more info here: System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8 )

Hi, so earlier today i launched arma 2 and then all of a sudden my computer went to a blue screen with a big sad face saying an error occurred and we are collecting error data or something along those lines. I have had my computer for over 5 months with no problems it is a dell inspiron 17R. and now every time i turn my computer on this comes up:

I have done everything i can think of to try and fix this. I put in the recovery media disc and that didnt work. I followed the directions on several other threads similar to this one and i still come to this blue screen every time i turn the computer on.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:Playing Arma 2, File /BCD Error code:0xc0000034

Error code: 0xc0000034 is "Object name not found" - in other words, it's pointing to something (such as a file) that isn't where it's supposed to be. This can be due to a software error or a hardware error.

If you're unable to get into Windows, start with these bootable diagnostics: Initial Hardware Diagnostics

Hello,

I have tried to start up my PC recently and I get the message

that my boot system has failed due to the fact it's missing the file "\BCD".
I have contacted the microsoft company to report this issue no one can help me without my product code, or a disc/USB with the windows 8 system on it.
I have none of these and yet my issue still remains. My PC has worked perfectly the day before I shut it down.
I'm trying very hard to restore my system but all I can find of the ways to restore it is by clicking control panel, etc...

I cannot access my laptop's desktop all I get is this error message and options to enter the setup utilities, firmware and boot options.

In all I'm asking for is, is there a way to restore my system from any of these options or is this another toss away laptop because windows 8 has failed to find this missing file?
I cannot get a replacement because I do not have the key with me that was used to install the operating system. This is all very frustrating and not to mention my job relies on this computer so it's putting everything to risk with my situation right now.

Thank you very much for your support with this matter I look forward to your options.

All went well until time to reboot. Thats when I started to get this: The Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information.  File: \BCD  Error Code: 0xc0000034 Did some looking online and decided to buy the recovery discs from HP £35. As that looked like the best way to solve this problem. I put a brand new unused hard drive in the system and using the new system restore discs from HP started the reinstall of windows 8.1. All goes well untill the final part where it has to reboot the system using the internal hard drive.

The boot file on your hard drive is corrupted. Why? Who knows? It could be an indication of a failing hard drive. Now, under a Windows 8 boot-loader scenario, I could supply you with a set of commands to try and repair your issue; however, because you have a UEFI installation, I really don't know if those commands would apply because I've never encountered your situation before. In any event, I would go straight to Acer support if under warranty. Good luck.

Hello,

I've just installed Windows 8 (from usb) on my brand new HP laptop and everything worked fine. But I didn't partition hard drive as I wanted, so I decided to install it again.

During the 2nd installation, the keyboard wasn't working (don't know why). So, when I was supposed to make partitions again, I deleted every partition and tried to make new ones, but I couldn't 'cause of the keyboard. So I just exited from the installation and turned off the computer.

Then I tried to boot the system from usb again, but all I could see was a blue screen with a message that my computer is damaged and needs to be repaired. There was also an error code 0xc0000034. And now everytime I turn it on, there's only the blue screen with no other options.

Any suggestions what to do?

I ran it fine and it went for about 2 hours and upn completion it said it worked. It then restarted the laptop and i got a BSOD. It read "Your PC needs to be repaired. The boot configuration data file is missing some required information. File /BCD . Error code:0xc0000034. You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media." After looking online for a couple of hours someone told me to run an elevated command prompt and type in the following in order: "Bootrec /fixmbr, Bootrec /fixboot, Bootrec /scanos. Bootrec /rebuildbcd". After doing so it worked and i backed up everything on my laptop. My question is why did this happen. It must of had to been something to do with the battery configuration. Anyway,  how can i stop this from happening in the future? Will it happen again or is it fixed as i typed those specific commands above and it worked or are the commands just a temporary fix or something? Also can i run the battery check again just to double check it worked or do you think i will get the BSOD error message again?
Thanks

A:HP 650 notebook BSOD error code : 0xc0000034

You rebuilt the BCD (Boot Configuration Data), so that should be fine now.
 
As for what happened, all I can suggest is that some how a file became corrupted.  This happens with Windows, this is why they have System File Checker (sfc /scannow).

This laptop runs win7, after the logo screen I am getting the error code message so it won't boot to windows and pressing F8 to run a recovery is not working, I can go to the BIOS. I tried Knoppix and it loads fine but it won't let me reload the OS from a disc so I am guessing it's a hard drive issue? Is there anything I can try to access the HDD or to know 100% that it's a HDD issue before I should go buy another HDD?

Try this:
1.Insert your Installation Disk

So I recently updated to Windows 8.1, was having troubles with my SLI so I downgraded my driver to this. Laptop was working and was playing Guild Wars 2. Decided to switch characters so I logged out, all of a sudden everything goes gray. I thought it was just the game so I hit alt+tab to switch out, doesn't work. Try alt+tab+delete, doesn't work.

Turn off computer via power button and start it back up. Get blue screen with error.

Call lenovo and they say my limited warranty doesn't cover software errors and wants to charge $89. I want to see if I can fix the error so I don't have to send it in.

I have looked up the error and don't really have much tech experience but I saw something with if you have another Windows 8 computer but the only computers I have are Vista and 7. My laptop is the Lenovo Y500 and it has no optical bay (swap able bay but got one with grahpics card so I would have to buy the optical bay in order to put discs in).

I took pictures of my BIOS and the error for help, thanks for the future replies and help!




Also another question, if I can't fix the error would it be best to take it to a local repair place or lenovo's $89 offer? I've had this laptop less than a year (Hitting 6 month mark in a day or 2).

A:Boot Error 0xc0000034

Did you make your factory recovery discs and are they available? Do you have that Lenovo One Key Recovery button on this model? If so, I would try either one of those option before sending it to Lenovo because the only thing they are going to do is restore it to factory shipment status. Good luck.

So my friend gave me his laptop to fix this weekend, And i am stumped to say the least.

You see his laptop is in a constant rebooting session it keeps trying to reboot and reboot and reboot. And gives me that error message above. I CANT NOT, I REPEAT CANNOT GET TO THE OS SYSTEM meaning that i cant get to the start menu or anything like that. Also when i tried to select automatic repair it tries to load it then gives me the same error above. The Computer my friend has is a HP Spectre XT running windows 8 64 bit. Also the only thing, I could get to is the boot menu which has the OS boot manager which keeps rebooting and stuff. Then select a EFI file from the hard disk drive.

A:Computer error File /BCD 0xc0000034

Press and hold "Esc" while starting (try it several times)\
This should get you to the HP UEFI boot menu.

I believe F2 will bring up the diagnostics, and F11 will get you to the recovery
F9 is the boot menu.

Hi there. My laptop wouldn't shut down last night so I knew something was wrong. This morning all I see on the screen is this message: Recovery. Your PC/Device needs to be repaired. The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors. File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD Error code: 0xc0000034 You'll need to use recovery tools. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device) contact your PC administrator or PC/Device manufacturer. Press Esc for UEFI Firmware Settings. ------------------- By pressing Esc I can access the startup menu. F1 System Information; F2 System Diagnostics; F9 Boot Device Options; F10 BIOS setup; F11 System Recovery. I'm a bit hesitant to try any of these as I don't want to make the problem worse. I've done some searching online and it seems that I need to launch a recovery application. I downloaded one from WikiFixes and put it on a USB drive but I can't figure out how (or if it's possible) to launch this via the Startup Menu. I did not get a CD with the laptop (it was a gift and came ready-to-use). Is there any way I can fix this now? Or do I need to order a recovery CD? Thanks for any advice.

I have an Acer Aspire S7-391
Win 8.1 x64

I've been reading everything I can find and feel like I need to take my machine into someone, I hope not.

I get the blue screen of death when I turn it on.
The first time it happened I was able to press esc and get into the Boot Menu.
Unfortunately, I didn't know what to do and shut the computer back down.
I can no longer press ESC from the BSD and get into the Boot Menu.

I've tried F8, F10, F12 while manufactures logo is up - no luck
I created a recovery SD (from my 2nd machine) and inserted it in the laptop.
The laptop doesn't seem to see it when I start it up.
I've tried several times, nothing but BSD and then it shuts itself down.

4/14/15

I figured out how to get into the Boot menu. It's F2 for Acer Laptops for anyone who does not know.

I changed my boot order so that USB HDD is now listed first.
Reboot
Still landing on BSOD.
I tried this process multiple times with the boot disk in my SD slot and in the USB slot.
I tried multiple different boot orders as well.
End result is always BSOD.

Does anyone have any experience with this? I've been waiting since 4/11/15 for a response.

Hey there all,

Earlier, about an hour ago, I left to go job searching, and left my computer in hibernate mode so I could bring it back up as soon as I got back. When I tapped keys on the keyboard, the computer powered up as usual, but it brought up the BSoD, stating it was missing files.

Prior to receiving this error, everything was working fine. I even set it to hibernate mode during the night, and it powered on this morning without any problems. I dunno if it's the multimedia keyboard I'm using or what that caused it.

I don't have an installation disc (since I bought it from Fry's Electronics about a year ago with 8 pre-installed), and neither do I have a recovery disc (since I didn't know how to make one.)

Computer info: Windows 8 x64
Manufacturer: ASUS

I'm just wondering mainly how to fix this, i.e: how to fix the missing boot files, and how to do it without causing any data loss from either of my hard drives.

Hi Everyone,

First post here, allow me to thank you in advance for your good help - people like me who have limited information on diagnostics and repair owe a deep debt of gratitude for your service.

I own an Acer Aspire V5-571P-6815, which has put up the Recovery blue screen of death, citing Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information. It also cites File:\BCD, Error Code 0xc0000034. It says I'll need to use the recovery tools ion my installation media or boot cd/USB device.

Thank you so much for any help you may be able to give me. I am ready to carry out instruction. I have my cell phone, iPad, and temporarily, another laptop with CD burner.

EDIT: I also have access to UEFI Firmware Settings with menu options. Thanks.

Best,

Any help needed, my aunt sent me her laptop for recovery, she said it used to work fine until she upgraded to windows 10, then she couldn't start up to the welcome screen anymore.

I took a look at it and i still don't understand what is causing the error, must have been wiped of its OS.

Anyway, back to what i know.

The laptop runs originally on a windows 8, there is no way to rollback though.

The error is titled 0xc0000034 and it seems to be the file(or map) \BCD missing from the drive.

I checked on some forums about how i could recover it and most of them implied using CMD, but i can't even get into CMD, neither any recovery options on the laptop.

I tried going into BIOS but the same screen would come up when i pressed F10.

I also tried mounting with windows 8.1 on my USB(by using rufus), but still it takes me to the same error, a good thing is that it is at least reading the USB it seems.

None of F9,F10,F11 works, they just redirect me back to the error.

After about 20seconds the screen turns off.

Here i start up the laptop.

This is after i press ESC, Won't take me to bios, but instead return to the error screen again.

This is when i launch with a USB



Thanks for any help.
