Hello all
I have a big problem
I was trying to repair a MMC problem and did a sys restore to before a major Microsoft update in June 2012 on my win 7 64 bit desk top.
I saw on Microsoft community that that could have been the cause of my MMC problem. When the restore tried to reboot all I get is this


Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem

1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "next."
3. click "repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance

Status: 0xc000000f

Info: The boot selection entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt.

I have tried a startup repair and restoring back to the restore point I created before I tried to go back to June from my original win 7 DVD and others with no luck.

Most info I can find on this requires running the system I can not. I canít even run in Safe mode.

Hoping not to have to reinstall win 7.

I do have win XP pro on a different drive on the same machine.

Any suggestions?

Chkdsk /r only addresses the file system, file storage, etc...it really doesn't serve as a hard drive diagnostic.

I would run the apppriate hard drive diagnostic, to ensure that the underlying base of the O/S isn't faulty. Manufacturers of hard drives generally make such available for download at their respective websites.

Worth a look, http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-debugging/204643-file-windows-system32-winload-exe-missing-corrupt.html

Even though it seems to be a boot file problem, I would verify the functional status of the hard drive before attempting to address what may be symptoms.
