      Datenträger 2    Online          968 MB      0 B

    DISKPART> select disk 1

    Datenträger 1 ist jetzt der gewählte Datenträger.

    DISKPART> list partition

      Partition ###  Typ               Größe    Offset

      Partition 1    Primär              39 GB  1024 KB
      Partition 2    Primär              71 GB    40 GB

    If Disk 1 is removed the system freezes and can no longer be booted. There are no boot critical files on this device. System and boot are on Disk 0

    The automatic system repair is not able to recover from a disk 1 not available error.

    Please repair this bug.

  • Hi, have you tried to run the Bootrec.exe tool, this is used to fix boot issues.

  • Hi,

    It seems that you may delete the wrong disk, to check this, I suggest to see the disk status in the WinRE environment with the command listed in the post,

    If this partitions or disks remain the same, I suggest to  use Bootrec.exe in the Windows RE to troubleshoot startup issues:

    To run the Bootrec.exe tool, first start the Windows RE:

    1.Put the Windows 8.1 or Windows 8 media in the DVD drive, and then start the computer.

    2.Press a key when you are prompted.

    3.Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard, or an input method, and then click Next.

    4.Click Repair your computer.

    5.Select the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.

    6.In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.

    7.Type Bootrec.exe, and then press Enter.

  • I have not. Is bootrec.exe compatible with the new bootloader BCD?

  • It's not a matter of compatibility, it a tool built in the DVD installation media helping to fix boot issues.

  • The machine boots fine. There is no need for the bootrec tool. Unless the bootrec tool does something else as set the boot record.

  • Hi,

    Can you please list the information for disk 0 ? I want to see if there is a system reserved partition there, also, there are some other language there that will be a confusion on the analysis of the partition information.
