Error code: 0x000000f
The Boot Configuration data for your PC is missing or contains errors.
The following notes may be of some help when trying to resolve the above error. Think the primary issue had to do with cloning a GPT drive to a RAID array that was using MBR. So think everything worked after converting it to GPT
All the commands are/were run from a recovery Command Prompt
Convert MBR disk to GPT
After running the following command the EFI directory was automatically created.
The command is supposed to be non destructive. Change the disk to whichever disk your trying to change to gpt.
gpt2efi /validate /disk:0
If running the above command did not work then you may give the following command a try. Change the drive names where appropriate.
bcdboot c:\windows /s s: /f UEFI /v
You may be able to get away with just using
You can check if the above worked by seeing if it created any files in the directory, if new efi partition is S:, then from a command prompt run
Commands for recreating the EFI partition (WARNING! MAY DESTROY DATA!)
select disk # Note: Select the disk where you deleted the EFI System partition.
create partition efi

Windows 10 by default does a hybrid shutdown which is supposed to make it quicker to start back up.
To fully shutdown you can hold the Shift key down while clicking the shutdown button.
Side note. A Restart will do a full shutdown before starting back up.
Boot up radio in tftp mode by pressing the reset button for ~20seconds or till you get the crossing blinky lights.
In Windows, search for
“turn windows features on or off”
Open up and select tftp client. Then hit OK.
That should install the tftp client
To flash the firmware, open up a command prompt and run the tftp command
tftp -i 192.168.1.20 PUT "\Users\bob\Downloads\XM.v220.127.116.11939.171117.1238.bin"

Problem: Can’t set default program for .blend files to Windows store version of Blender
Usually is not a problem as you’ll get asked if you want to set a default program. When you hit yes, blender does not show up in the list of apps. That wouldn’t be a problem, except Blender is from the Windows Store, so there is no launcher in the ordinary places.
Resolution: Install regular Windows installer from Blenders website.
Not sure if the issue is with the Store or Blender. The .blend file type does not show up in the Windows Settings under “Apps -> Default apps -> Choose default apps by file type” and Blender doesn’t show up under “Apps -> Default apps -> Set defaults by app”
Alienware has a unmarked shortcut for enabling and disabling the Windows Key.
If you hit it you should get a pop up that says
“System has disabled the Windows key.”
Guess it is supposed to keep you from accidentally hitting the Windows key while gaming.
Open up a Command Prompt to run the following commands.
List all the saved Wireless Network
netsh wlan show profiles
List info on specific network, change SSID to the wireless network name. key=clear lets you see the actual passkey.
netsh wlan show profiles name="SSID" key=clear
It looks like the Windows Defender Real-time protection can cause issues when trying to copy files on a local drive even if the drive is an SSD. Typically a copy seems to start out great, but then slows down to a crawl less then 1MB/s copy rate. Probably has to do with Defender having to scan every file as it is copied.
To fix/increase the copy speeds you can turn off Real-time protection.
To turn off Windows Defender Real-time protection, open up Settings > Update and Security > Windows Security > Virus & threat protection “That should open up the Windows Defender Security Center” > Virus & threat protection settings
Now Turn Real-time protection off.
