Error 0xc0000034 for Windows 8 after Hibernation

So, recently I hibernated my PC, and when I turned it on again, I got a Blue Screen with nothing but this:


The Boot Configuration Data file is missing some required information.

File: \BCD
Error Code: 0xc0000034

You'll need to use the recovery tools on your installation media. If you don't have any installation media (like a disc or USB device), contact your system administrator or PC manufacturer.

Press ESC for UEFI Firmware Settings.

It goes away after about a minute and then turns off my PC. I'm running Windows 8 64 bit and this happened after I hibernated my Desktop PC.

If you don’t have a Windows 8 disc, I would suggest you to download the Windows 8 installation files from another computer through this link and choose to “create an installation media” when the upgrade assistant prompts.
