Hi,

 

I did an idiot move and erased all my bootload.exe files using EasyBCD.

 

I have two OS, 1 Windows 10 and 1 Windows 7 and I can't access either of them.

 

When starting my PC I now get a big bold RED square saying:

 

"Secure Boot Violation"

 

"The system found unauthorized changes on the firmware, OS or UEIF drivers.

 

"Press [OK] to run the next boot device, or enter directly to BIOS Setup if there are no boot devices installed.

 

Go to BIOS Setup > Boot and change the current boot device into other secured boot device."

 

I've used my Windows 7 instillation CD to effect repairs but it says there is nothing wrong???

 

I've tried a new instillation, nothing works???

 

Is there a work around for this FoPa??? I hope I didn't ruin my brand new PC!!!!

 

Thanks,

 

John

 

PS I am using a second hand PC to write here.

Actually, Boot files are still there they just aren't doing their job???

 

With the Windows 7 instillation CD I was able to view my PC and all OS have their System32\Boot folder and files in tact.

 

So, that isn't the problem.

I've just put the 2 SSDs in RAID 0 to not being the 1 choice to boot. In fact I put it to third from having been originally second.

 

Moved the Windows 7 instillation to 1st in boot order (as it was originally) but I put the hard drive with the new Windows 7 installations on it into second place.

 

When starting up I still got the big RED square of annihilation.

 

But when I tried the Windows 7 instillation CD it finally said that there were errors and it proceeded to correct them.

 

On starting the PC it still throws up the big RED square but then proceeds to list 4 OS the original 2 and the 2 I just installed trying to access my PC.

 

The original Windows 7 seems to work but Windows 10 lets you start it but doesn't get much further than that.

 

I'll let you know what progress I make from here.

Put in your install disk, and do repair computer.  Go to command prompt.  Find the drive where Windows is.  It might be on C but if you have others it could be listed as another letter.  Go to each drive, and type dir then press enter.  You will see your root drive at some point.  Remember this letter, and put it in where I have written C in the following.

bcdboot C:\windows
 Then press return.  Now you can restart and windows should boot.  I hesitate to say will boot, but it has always worked for me!
