    Is it true that bcd store contains only start address of bootable
    partitions? Will computer boot after a bootable partition was scaled
    with the partition start address preserved without changes in BCD
    store?

    Hi,
    Sort of, see: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa362673.aspx
    Please define what you mean by "scaled".

  3. Hello,
    Not sure I understand the question.
    We have already booted to the drive ( via bootsector and MBR).
    which then call bootmgr which loads, which is turn would load the BCD file.
    So we should have loaded the boot code from the volume prior to getting to
    the BCD file.
    Thanks,
