What is a BCD file?

Windows boot configuration format introduced with Windows Vista; replaces the older boot.ini format used by the NTLDR program; supports underlying firmware abstraction so that multiple systems can be supported.

More Information

BCD initially supported PC/AT BIOS and EFI systems but is extensible and can support other firmwares as well.

NOTE: BCD files use the Windows registry (.REG) format and therefore can be edited with the Windows Registry Editor.
