I CANNOT STARTUP MY COMPUTER WHICH IS:

 

 

HP Pavilion dv7-4180us Entertainment Notebook

Intel Core I5

RUNNING Windows 7 Home Premium OA 64 bit

 

THE FIRST PROBLEM WAS THAT, ON STARTUP, I GOT THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE:

 

Windows Boot Manager

Windows failed to start

  1. Insert Windows Installation disk and restart computer
  2. Choose language settings
  3. Click “repair computer”

Boot \BCD

Status:: 0xc000000f

Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data.

 

 

BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE A Windows INSTALLATION DISK, I TRIED TO BOOT USING A RECOVERY CD.  IT DID NOT BOOT AND REQUESTED A SYSTEM IMAGE TO REPLACE THE SYSTEM.   I DO NOT HAVE A SYSTEM IMAGE ON CD OR DVD.

 

I THEN MANAGED TO GET INTO WinRE (RECOVERY ENVIRONMENT) AND TO MAKE A BACKUP OF MY DOCUMENTS.  I RAN THE CHECK DISK OPTION AND NO PROBLEMS WERE FOUND.  I THEN ATTEMPTED TWICE TO RESTORE THE SYSTEM TO TWO DIFFERENT POINTS IN THE PAST.  IN BOTH CASES RESTORE FAILED AND PRODUCED THE FOLLOWING ERROR MESSAGE:

 

System Restore Error 0x8000ffff

 

MY QUESTION:  Is there any way of repairing the problem without having to reinstall Windows and the whole system?
