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
format quick fs=fat32
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”
