The Boot Configuration Data Store Could Not Be Opened

A simple explanation for this issue is that the command was unable to locate the boot configuration data store on its own. A Fat32-formatted EFI partition is not present on the hard drive of the partition that the boot configuration software is attempting to access.

Any time you run bcedit.exe, you’ll see the message that follows:

Run the following command in CMD as an administrator:

  • “TheNameYouWant” as the current description in bcdedit.

  • To get started, simply follow these instructions:
  • C:BootBCD/set bootmenupolicy Legacy is what you need to do.

Change the Mode of Operation at the Beginning.

In order for BCDEdit to function properly, you must boot the computer from the same partition that was used to create the disc, as has been noted by a few worried users. Changing the BIOS mode is the quickest way to accomplish this. This is done through the BIOS settings, however it differs from computer to computer depending on the motherboard manufacturer and the BIOS version it contains.

Restart the Computer and Perform a Fresh Installation.

Reinstalling Windows 10 is the only option if all of the aforementioned procedures fail on your machine. However, even though reinstalling Windows can be a pain, it can be beneficial.

Your system files can be erased and you’ll have to start again if you have to reinstall your operating system. As a result, we urge you to create a backup of your data before proceeding with a system reinstallation.

Troubleshooting of the BCD

As a result of these issues, your computer will no longer be able to start. As a result, you’re unable to use programmes like Visual BCD Editor to fix the issue on the affected PC.

It’s best to start Windows in safe mode and then run many instructions from the command line in order to fix most problems.

You can access the recovery options if you have Windows installation support.

For Windows 10 users, Microsoft provides a media download option.
