I currently only have access to a this older laptop because my new one crashed do to an update by microsoft. (And yes, it was caused by an update) The laptop was a dell venue 11 pro. Which is one of those 2 in 1 computers which is better then most of them, and I actually like it. But sadly it dosen't have a cd drive so I can't use a disk for recovery. What's happening is that it says that it's missing BCD info. I know what that is but I don't know how to get it without a recovery drive. Please help.

Define "crashed". Are you able to boot into Windows at all? Can you copy the file(s) you need onto an external USB disk from the older laptop and use that to transfer? USB disks can be bootable.


Still trying but now I have a little bit better of an idea. I'm more of a linux person.
