bcdedit.exe is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

 

This is the issue that I have been getting for over a week, I've reinstalled windows 3 times since it could've been a corrupt file, I've been all over google and I've done everything that has been suggested from people + what I could find here on the internet, so if there's someone that has any clue what this could be then I would really appreciate it.

Hello,

Where are you accessing CMD as admin from? Is this a x64 or x86 computer? This could be a classic case of Windows redirect, Open up your command window and enter in the following command: C:\Windows\Sysnative\bcdedit

 

Do you get all of the information displayed?

In Windows 10 (64-bit) there is no C:\Windows\Sysnative folder -- at least, not on my system.

 

Use the following instead ... C:\Windows\System32\bcedit
