Hi members of Bleeping Computer.com

 

After some recent issues at start up my machine has decided to cough up a "0xc000000e" error message. I'm sure its nothing new though.

 

The exact message:

 

Windows Boot Manager

 

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

 

1, Insert your Windows installation disk and restart your computer.

2, Choose your language setting and then click "Next".

3, Click "Repair your computer"

 

If you do not have this disk, contact your system administrator of computer manufacturer for assistance.

 

Status 0xc000000e

 

Info: The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

 

 

My system specs are:

 

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1

 

GA P55 UD3 mobo

Core i5 750 (3.2ghz OC)

4gb 1333MHz (1500mhz OC)

1tb samsung hdd

650w psu

gtx 570 gpu

 

After some internetting I learned that I should use the Windows Installation disk to repair the faulty parts of the windows start up process.

Windows 7.

 

Upon further reading this most likely will not work due to the repair disk being unable to repair an updated version of Windows 7.

 

So before I go ahead and turn my nice black box desktop PC Beastie into an expensive paper weight I come here seeking advice on how to repair my machine without killing all the data on it.

 

I use my machine for some gaming and general browsing duties.

 

Any help getting it up and running again will be much appreciated

Hi hamluis, thank you for the links you provided.

I could not follow the usual repair method because I do not have an install disk to conduct a repair from.

I did however take the lazy way out and shell out a few dollars to buy EasyRE.

Created a bootable USB, changed the boot order and voilà, a working pc again.

EasyRE didn't create any logs so, why it failed to start exactly is a mystery.

Thanks to the forum as a whole too, plenty of info on all things Windows related and more.

I have been wanting to either try or get some feedback on the Neosmart product, glad it did the job for you.

 

Thanks for the feedback...happy computing :).
