Where and how to use windows boot intercept?

Asked By 70 points N/A Posted on -

Good day! I have big problems with this Windows 8 OS. My windows 8 OS was corrupted in an unknown reason. So I ask my friend if there is a way to repair it? But he only told me that I need to intercept the boot process. But the problem is I can’t find the BCD. So guys, where is the windows boot intercept? How to use it properly? Thanks.

Hi Isabellartd,

BCD can be found on your root drive then windows then system32, with a file name bcdedit.

Once found make sure you run CMD with admin rights.

Make sure to also back up the bcdedit before making changes in the boot configuration.

Bcdedit may be a hidden system file so it is important to show all hidden attributes first specially in the system32 folder.

You can also access via typing the word bcedit in the CMD window.

This link would show you more tips on making changes on the BCD.
