\boot\bcd failure windows 7 RRS feed

  • Question

  • On my windows 7 ver 7000 system, I had installed windows 7, everything was working great, but when I had built the system, found the case was to small.  Though while waiting for the new case, I had installed win7, and everything was running fine. 

    I get the new case in, and transfer everything exactly as it was before, and boot up, and now get a \boot\bcd error.  When I try to run the repair tool, it says it found an issue, and if it wants to repair, and restart.  I say yes, and most of the time that fails.  Then shows me no windows partitions.  If I try to run startup repair, it says there are issues, but they can't be repaired.  The drives are raid, and I load the raid drivers, but it still shows no windows installs.  When I go to command prompt.  I do have the 200mb C: and then my windows install which is D:  I ran a chkdsk /f /r /b, on c: it went through quick, and said no issues found.  On D: it went through and recovered a bunch of orphan files and put then in to other directories, but while doing that, it came up with a unspecified error occurred (6672632e637878 41a and then stopped. 

    Also tried the bootrec commands from the comand prompt as listed in the KB article, and the first two worked but bootrec /buildbcd failed with the same error I see running the repair tool that it couldn't save the file.

    I can reinstall, but I would perfer not to since I had a fair amount of stuff installed already, and was hoping to not have to reinstall until the next beta release came out.
