Another way to fix BCD error after imaging

Here is another way to fix bcd errors.

1. boot to winpe (the architecture matters so boot to winpe x64 if you have windows 7 x64)
2. type bcdedit.  Look at the bcd entries if you see a value = unknown then u know the issue is bcd
3. type bcdedit /delete {default} /f
4. find out where the boot files are. if you installed windows 7 from a DVD then more than likely drive c: (in winpe) is the hidden boot partition
5. type bcdboot or browse to d:\windows\system32\bcdboot.exe and execute the following command:
bcdboot d:\windows /s c:

Let me explain this. d:\windows is where the OS files are, /s species the target for the boot files c: iswhere the boot file are located.
NOTE. this is done in WinPE and the architecture matters :) and the c: drive with boot files is available only in winpe no on the OS boot.

Hope this helps.
