    I had a BCD corruption a few days ago. Fixed it with bootsec, then windows says its not genuine. Uninstalled and reinstalled the loader, booted up fine for once then BCD corruption again at next restart. Again fixed it, again windows says its not genuine, reinstalled loader blah blah and this keeps looping itself. After some testing apparently the PC boots fine repeatedly without the loader but the moment i install the loader the BCD corrupts. Any ideas? This never happened to me before, and the HDD is new, only 2 months. WDC Black.

    Instead of fixing the problem, have you tried reinstalling the OS?

    Also, what kind of computer do you have? Does it have UEFI?

    Its a old Gigabyte H55M-S2H, no UEFI. I would do a clean reinstall only at the last resort...i was going to try a repair install first but i wanna know if there is anything i missed...

    Try and do a system repair or system restore, if possible. Otherwise you may have to reinstall.

    Check your hdd for errors. Had a similar issue with Linux. Did a low level format of the drive, error was gone. (SMART showed pendind sectors xyz)

    I did a full scan and there was no errors...then by chance i decided to unplug the secondary HDD and the system works fine now. I don't understand computers >.>

    It could be the partition layout, bad geometry or something.

    * Make sure the BIOS is the latest version
    * Make sure you use the latest version of the loader
