I'm having trouble with my very new computer (Lenovo Y480 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit), which I've narrowed down to the following sequence: 1. I restored computer to original factory settings (to rule out possible causes) 2. I ran msconfig, and checked the boxes 'Safe Mode' and 'Networking.' I got the following error message: "System configuration cannot save the original boot configuration for later restoration. Boot changes will be reverted. The system cannot find the file specified" 3. The default boot option disappeared from the boot menu (Windows 7, default OS, current OS). 4. When I restarted my computer, it would not boot and gave me the error 0xc00034, stating that the file \Boot\BCD was missing. I did not do anything else with my computer after restoring the factory settings, and I did not connect to the internet. I originally encountered the problem when I wanted to try installing Windows updates in safe mode after some of the installations failed. I have replicated the error several times, including after successfully installing all Windows updates. I got this computer less than two weeks ago. Is this problem particular to my computer, perhaps caused by a corrupted file? It's a simple problem that occurs under factory settings with no changes made. Should I try to return it and get a replacement?
