Hey guys. I've had a persistent problem with my brother's laptop, and I'm wondering if you guys can help.

We got a new SSD for him after his old HDD died, and I'm not sure what's causing this problem, but the AMD drivers screw up my OS files or something. Every time I refresh or reset the computer and install the graphics drivers, I have a different thing wrong with my OS and none of them ever seem to be fixable. This time around, it says that it's missing required information from \BCD and gave me error code 0xc000000d. I tried using advanced options from both my USB and my installation disk, but using bootrec /rebuildbcd can't find my operating system. I'm so lost and have searched everywhere for answers. Anyone know what I can do?

OS: Windows 8.1
CPU: AMD A10-7300 Radeon R6

Did you install all the motherboard drivers for that laptop, especially the chipset drivers?

c000000d is an invalid parameter being passed

I tend to wonder about the installation process and the updates that are applied to the system (BIOS/UEFI, Windows, 3rd party devices and programs, etc)


Let's try looking at these reports:

1)  Please run this report collecting tool (even though you may not be reporting BSOD's) so we can provide a complete analysis:  http://omgdebugging.com/bsod-inspector/
When done a Notepad document will open with the name of the file and it's location.
By default it'll be a .zip file located on your Desktop
Simply upload the .zip file with your next post and we'll move on from there.
If it doesn't work for you, then please try this:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/576314/blue-screen-of-death-bsod-posting-instructions-windows-10-81-8-7-vista/

2)  Please do the following:
- open Event Viewer (run eventvwr.msc from the "Run" dialog)
- expand the Custom Views category (left click on the > next to the words "Custom Views")
- right click on the "Administrative Events" heading
- select "Save all Events in Custom View as..."
- save the file as Admin.evtx
- zip up the file (right click on it, select "Send to", select "Compressed (zipped) folder")
- upload it with your next post (if it's too big, then upload it to a free file-hosting service and post a link here).

FYI - If we're looking for Event ID 41 errors (unexplained shutdowns), there's more info on that here:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2028504
