Your PC/Device needs to be repaired
The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors.
Error code: 0xc0000034"
plus some general comments about seeing your IT specialist. The computer was delivered with Windows 8.1 and was later upgraded to Windows 10.
I created a recovery disk (both on USB and CD) using a second laptop. The problem is that the the laptop will not attempt to boot from anything but the hard drive. I've gone into BIOS and changed the order of the boot devices but with no effect. If the hard drive is installed I get the error. If I take the hard drive out I get a different error indicating that there were no boot devices attached.
I could attempt to repair the boot sector with the offending drive connected to a second computer using a USB adapter but have no idea of what needs to be copied where.
