Windows Boot Manager - Omen 15-DC00085nr

HP Recommended
Omen 15-DC00085nr

Greetings! 

Have an Omen that will only power up to display the screen (attached). Requests a windows installation disc but this laptop does not have a disc drive. 

 

The boot confirmation data for your PC is missing or contains errors. 

 

Any advice?

The error message indicates that the BCD has become corrupted -- and the good news is that in many cases, that can be repaired without having to reinstall the OS.

 

If your PC can not boot into Windows, a way around that is to follow the instructions below to create boot media from Macrium Reflect (MR) that can be used to rewrite/repair the boot media on your PC:
1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR) from this link on a working PC: http://www.macrium.com/reflectfree.aspx
2) Use the option to create a boot USB stick

That will create MR bootable media. Then, you can boot your PC into WinPE using that media.

Have patience, as that can take a while to start and bring up the screen.

Once the screen is there, select the option to Fix Windows boot problems. It will then search for the OSs installed and list them, Select the one you want to repair and click Next.

It will now do the repairs, listing the things it has done.

When finished, select the option to Restart the PC.

If this worked, the boot repair succeeded and you will have your PC back.

Hello! Thank you for your response. 

I have attempted to download. However, I have a MAC and it will not download.
