Hey everyone - I'm having a problem which I hope someone can help out with. I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop that's not working anymore. I was cleaning some stuff up and accidentally deleted the BCD reg key (don't ask why - I don't know) BUT I exported it before doing so. I tried slaving the hard drive then unloading the hive modifying it then loading it again but this didn't seem to work.

Before doing the hive 'fix' I was getting errors related to BCD0000000 or something similar. Now I'm getting Windows failed to start file: \windows\system32\winload.exe status 0xc00000e The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.

I do have the data copied to another machine so I don't care if I reload Windows, the only problem is the internal DVD drive is busted and doesn't read discs anymore. I tried hooking up an external USB drive but it's not recognizing the drive.

ANY advice would be much appreciated.

Hi schemjo, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Some BIOS support booting from an external hdd, you will have to look in the BIOS to see if it supports booting from an external hdd.

Did you check BIOS, if you have an option to boot from USB device?
