Hi,

There isn't much information on Windows 11 yet.

However, I think the accepted answer on the link below might be helpful:
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows8_1-update/error-code-0xc0000098-missing-file-bcd/a5e0d28d-1e25-4ebd-836a-eb8656f41579?auth=1

Easy Recovery Essential is also one of the possible solutions: https://neosmart.net/wiki/0xc0000098/

In both you need a USB or a DVD to burn a bootable image on.

A downside with the later one is, it is paid for and no download that corresponds with Win 11 but its worth a try if the earlier fails.

Regards,

G
