    How do I run bcdedit if I cannot start windows 7? I changed the processor number to 4 and the PC won’t boot now. I am sure if I remove the entry it will boot OK. Can I run it from a bootdisk or ubcd?

    I can’t get the BCDEDIT to change description Windows to Windows 7 Home Premium or Windows 7.

    I’m trying to reinstall Windows 7 from the partition.I’ve done it before.
    I go to F8 select computer repair and the screen has
    partition 3

    I looked up 2672dedf in the regedit it is

    Maybe you can see if the BCDEDIT /enum all is correct

    Just reloaed Win7 64bit on mt C partition and the bcdedit does not work now. I check it and I have the correct commands, I have XP on my D parititon and when I pick XP the systems reboots. Tried to load Win7 on the C partition it adds a extra setting to boot list.
