The WinSxS directory holds Windows Side-by-Side DLLs. WinSxS allows multiple versions of the same DLL (code libraries) to exist on the same system. This ensures that every application will get the DLL version they were tested and designed for. The result is improved application and system stability.

Bcdboot - Bcd boot file creation and repair tool.

The bcdboot.exe command-line tool is used to copy critical boot files to the
system partition and to create a new system BCD store.

bcdboot  [/l ] [/s ] [/v]
                 [/m [{OS Loader ID}]]

  source            Specifies the location of the windows system root.

  /l                Specifies an optional locale parameter to use when
                    initializing the BCD store. The default is US English.

  /s                Specifies an optional volume letter parameter to designate
                    the target system partition where boot environment files are
                    copied.  The default is the system partition identified by
                    the firmware.

  /v                Enables verbose mode.

  /m                If an OS loader GUID is provided, this option merges the 
                    given loader object with the system template to produce a 
                    bootable entry. Otherwise, only global objects are merged.


Examples: bcdboot c:\windows /l en-us
          bcdboot c:\windows /s h:
          bcdboot c:\windows /m {d58d10c6-df53-11dc-878f-00064f4f4e08}
