Fix the “Bad System Config Info” Stop Code in Windows 10

 

 

 

If you see ‘BAD SYSTEM CONFIG INFO’ on your computer screen during the boot process, it means that your computer’s Boot Configuration File (BCD) directory is corrupt. You will be unable to boot into Windows 10 unless you address the issue. So, without further ado, simply follow these simple step-by-step steps and the problem will be resolved fast.

 

NOTE–

Because your computer did not start properly, the Automatic Repair window should open automatically.

However, if the Automatic Repair window does not open automatically, you must open it manually-

1. Ensure that your computer is turned off.

 

2. Start your computer and, as soon as the manufacturer’s logo (such as Dell, HP, or others) appears, press and hold the power button for 3-4 seconds to force shut down your device.

3. Repeat the start-force shutdown-start process three times more, then restart your computer normally.

The Automatic Repair window will appear.

 

Rebuild Boot Configuration Data (BCD)-

 

1. In the Automatic Repair window, select “Advanced settings.”

 

2. Your machine will enter Windows RE mode.

3. In the ‘Choose an option’ section, simply click on “Troubleshoot.”

 

4. In the Troubleshooting window, select “Advanced options.”

 

5. In the Advanced Options window, select “Command Prompt.”

 

6. In the Command Prompt window, copy and paste these commands one at a time, pressing Enter after each time to execute them.

bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot 
bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup

[Important: Replace “C:” with the drive letter of Windows installation drive on your computer]

 

 

 

7. Again, copy-paste these commands one-by-one in Command Prompt and hit Enter after each of them to re-build the BCD directory.

attrib c:\boot\bcd -h -r -s
ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old
bootrec /RebuildBcd

[Important: Replace “C:” in the commands with the drive letter of Windows installation drive on your computer.]

 

 

 

Close Command Prompt window.

8. Coming back to Choose an option settings, click on “Continue” to continue to Windows 10 on your computer.

 

 

 

As you have rebuild the Boot Configuration Data (BCD) directory, your computer will work just fine.

 

Fix-2: Perform a system restore-

 

 

 

If the problem was caused by the installation of third-party software, doing a system restore may resolve the problem.

2. Your machine will enter Windows RE mode. Click “Troubleshoot” in the ‘Choose an option’ window.

4. In the Advanced Options window, select “System Restore” to begin the system restore procedure on your computer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The system restore process will return your computer to its previous state.

5. In the System Restore window, click “Next.”

 

 

 

6. Select the restore point from the list of restore points, then click “Next.”

 

 

 

 

7. To complete the process, click “Finish.”

This will begin the process of restoring your system to the system restore point you have chosen.

 

 

 

 

Patience is required because this process will take some time.

You will be able to use your computer after the system has been restored.

 

Solution 3: Reset your computer-

If nothing else seems to be working, rebooting or refreshing your computer is your last choice.

1. In the Automatic Repair window, select “Advanced choices” to access the advanced settings.

 

 

 

 

Your machine will enter Windows RE mode.

2. In the ‘Choose an option’ window, select “Troubleshoot.”

3. Select “Troubleshoot” and then “Reset this PC.”

 

 

 

 

4. You now have two options:

a. Refresh your PC- Refreshing the PC keeps all files unaltered, with the exception of some system files and settings, which are removed.

c. Reset your PC*- Resetting your PC will destroy all of your files and restore all of your settings to their original state.

Choose one of these alternatives and click on it (We recommend that you first refresh your computer and check. If that doesn’t work, you’ll have to reset your device).

 

 

3. To finish the process, follow the on-screen directions.

Your PC will be reset/refreshed.

You will be able to use your computer normally when it has been reset/refreshed.
