I've seen people post similar issues but no real idea what the actual problem is that's causing it.
This happened about a month ago when the power went out and I couldn't find a way around it so I had to format and start all over again. The Power went out and now Windows won't boot again. When I try to boot it I get the blue screen message "Your PC needs to be repaired. The boot configuration data file is missing some required information: File:\Boot\BCD error code: 0xc0000034"
It then says I need to use my windows media to repair it. So I put in the USB and attempt the repair which it says it can't do. It also won't refresh or reset. Seems to again be leaving me with the only option of formatting. I can't keep doing this each time the power goes out. Is there a reason this will keep happening?
It never used to happen with a power outage before with the same Windows installed, only difference I can think of was that I am using a SSD now to run Windows and before that it didn't happen. Is it possible that now when I install Windows it isn't installing it properly and is instead installing it without whatever this bit of data is that is needed in case of unexpected shut downs? It's a legit copy of Windows that I got with the PC when I bought it so I would assume there shouldn't be any problems when you install it?
