What is BCD file?

BCD file is a critical data file for Windows boot manager for Windows Vista above. It stores boot menu items, options. On MBR disk, it is located on the folder, /boot/BCD, in the system partition (active partition). On GPT disk, it is located on the folder, /EFI/Microsoft/boot/, in the EFI system partition (normally is a FAT32 100MB partition).
BCD file actually is a Windows registry file. When you use Registry Editor, you can find BCD file is mounted on the key, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\BCD00000000.

Why is the BCD file vital?

Windows Boot Manager requires boot file to find the boot partition and its system files. If there are errors in the BCD file, you meet any 0x00000007, 0x0000000c or other boot manager errors when booting and you cannot log into Windows.
So, correct BCD file is very important for Windows booting processes.

Why do you need Lazesoft BCD Doctor?

After checking the key, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\BCD00000000, in the Windows Registry Editor, you will find that the BCD file is complicated and not easily human manually to edit it. It does not like the Windows XP boot menu file, boot.ini, which is a text file with readable characters. But, BCD files contain a lot of binary data.
We developed Lazesoft BCD Doctor to help users to easily manage BCD boot menu and repair the BCD file even if Windows is crashed or not booting normally.

Microsoft has a few BCD file tools, such as BCDEdit, BCDBoot. But, with our working experience, we find they have the following limitations:

1. BCDEdit is not easy to use for common users.

BCDEdit is a powerful command prompt tools. Use it you have to remember a lot of commands. For example, if you want to add a boot menu, you need to type commands like the followings:
bcdedit /create /d "Windows 7" /application osloader
bcdedit /default {<GUID>}
bcdedit /set {default} device partition=d:
bcdedit /set {default} path \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe
bcdedit /set {default} osdevice partition=d:
bcdedit /set {default} systemroot \Windows
bcdedit /set {default} detecthal yes
bcdedit /displayorder {default} /addlast

2. BCDBoot/Bootrec is not powerful enough to fix all the BCD errors.

With BCDBoot, you can fix a few errors with BCD file. But, on our work experience of fixing Windows booting problems, it still cannot all many BCD errors, especially on GPT disk or when Windows is corrupted or BCD file is corrupted seriously.

3. Microsoft tools do not back up BCD file automatically when doing the operations.

So, we developed the Lazesoft BCD Doctor. You can use it with a few clicks to manage the BCD file and Windows boot menu. Lazesoft BCD Doctor can fix all the BCD errors even if Windows is crashed and boot file is corrupted seriously. The operation done by Lazesoft BCD Doctor is undoable, because Lazesoft BCD Doctor automatically back up the BCD file before every operation.
