Where Is My Installed Drive?!? AHHH!

Save you some time and money. I have an Asus S46 running win8.1,and suddently I get the error "the boot configuration data file is missing". Reply to Tonehenge m 0 l Graff Spencer June 23, 2015 3:15:06 PM Tonehenge said:johnbl said: all else fails you can run repair commands to fix the boot record with bootrec.exe I installed a new battery, I turned the RAID array back on, and BOOM!

The computer is supposed to send the SSD a signal "standby_immediate" to prevent that, but Windows 10 appears to not send that signal as often as it should. From there,I tried to recover Windows but it said "drive is locked"...so I searched on the web and found your topic here. Fortunately, I looked at an old computer repair book and it advised using the chkdsk /f command at the command prompt, which is available from the trouble shooting screen. Chkdsk Cannot write as disk is locked: bootrec - cannot do anything as the disk is still locked.

Restart + F9 (repair console). 4. All Rights Reserved. F8 command did not work. You can not post a blank message.
