BCDEdit Incompatible with XP?
Posted 06 June 2007 - 06:32 AM
Curious though, after I clicked OK on error dialog, BCDEdit displayed the content of my bcd.
Anyone tried using it to edit bcd from XP? Is there a way to make it run without errors?

I didn't know it was included with WAIK. I have WAIK installed, but since I didn't know it was there, I was using Vista's bcdedit.
I will search my program files for it.

Yeah, I didn't find it in WAIK either. I do believe bcdedit is not part of WAIK.
bcdedit is part of WinPE.wim.
In WAIK, you can see different folders (ia64, amd64, x86) for different platforms, these folders contain basic WinPE.wim image files. When you mount WinPE.wim file using imagex, u can find bcdedit.exe in that mounted folder.

Use your Vista DVD with the repair option. That should recover it.
THEN use BCDedit to add XP and WinPE to your BCD.
Interestingly enough, on XP with WAIK, I get an error with BCDEdit. On a computer without, no error. Go figure.
