Hello BC community.


Looking for some help to see if I can repair a Win7 Ult. installation that is giving me the following BSOD;  "STOP:  C0000135.  The program can't start because %hs is missing from your computer."  Additionally, when I run the MIcrosoft Recovery, it states that "...a Patch is preventing Windows from starting."


This has been a stable installation for years.  But I did a recent batch of Windows patches that I believe is the cause.


I have already:

  1. Attempted to boot to Safe Mode, Command Prompt, and LKGC unsuccessfully.
  2. I do not have a system restore point to revert to.
  3. Verified it's not AVG related.
  4. I replaced the HD with a known good one and cloned the drive with Acronis.  I just omitted the 100MB reserved system partition and I ran Bootrec /fixmbr /fixboot /rebuildbcd to get it attempting to boot correctly.
  5. Attempted to restore old registry hives from c:\windows\config\regback folder.
  6. Ran FRST64.exe (attached).
  7. Ran Kaspersky Rescue CD to scan for infections and came up clean.

If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate them greatly.


Thank you,
