Manage Boot Configuration Data (BCD) data stores.
The objects and elements in the store effectively replace Boot.ini.
BCDEdit improves upon and replaces the Bootcfg command on earlier versions of Windows
Syntax BCDEdit /Command [Argument1] [Argument2] ... Key Store commands: /createstore Creates a new empty boot configuration data store. The created store is not a system store. /export Export the contents of the system store into a file. This file can be used later to restore the state of the system store. Valid only for the system store. /import Restore the state of the system store by using a backup data file previously generated with /export. This command deletes any existing entries in the system store before the import takes place. Valid only for the system store. /store This option can be used with most BCDedit commands to specify the store to be used. If this option is not specified, then BCDEdit operates on the system store. Running the bcdedit /store command by itself is equivalent to running the bcdedit /enum active command.
Administrative privileges are required to use BCDEdit to modify BCD.
