Recovery, Your PC/Device needs to be repaired



File: \EFI\Microsoft\Boot\BCD
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

Other commands

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

cdboot c:\windows

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

S:
dir

Commands for recreating the EFI partition (WARNING! MAY DESTROY DATA!)

diskpart
