BCDEdit /enum

The BCDEdit /enum command lists entries in Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store. The /enum command is the default, so running "bcdedit" without parameters is equivalent to running "bcdedit /enum ACTIVE".

bcdedit [/store <filename>] /enum [<type> | <id>] [/v]

Caution

Administrative privileges are required to use BCDEdit to view the BCD store. Changing some boot entry options using the BCDEdit /set command could render your computer inoperable. As an alternative, use the System Configuration utility (MSConfig.exe) to change boot settings.
