PC crashed with the BSOD. Error code 0x0000098.

Boot configuration Data file does not contain valid information.

Tried Recovery disk to no avail. Uninstalled updates, no good.

Cause please?

Dont want to use installation media or that will wipe hard  drive.

Ordered a new PC anyway as i was going to, but would like to repair this one and sell on. O/S is Win 10.

The error code 0x0000098 typically indicates that Windows can't find a required system file for booting. Since you're unable to repair the existing installation, a clean installation of Windows 11 might be the way to go.;source=web&rct=j&opi=89978449&url=,be%2520the%2520way%2520to%2520go.&ved=2ahUKEwj-u837nb2EAxUDX0EAHS4kBwkQFnoECA4QBQ&usg=AOvVaw2pLY_O8Ls_XSZWAOhKuH3f


Is the hard disk automatically wiped ?

Is there anything in settings about repairing ?

Try entering the bios boot menu by pressing the key(usually del) before the boot tries to run after switch on. Make sure the monitor is on of course. Look at the boot mode menu and choose UEFI/BIOS Boot Mode  ... Enter.
Enable Legacy Bios Boot Mode (keyboard arrow toggle usually)and Enter. 

I think you can save that afterwards.
