Mod Edit: Moved to Win 7 from AII ~~boopme

Hi, Bleepingcomputer community, I've recently had a very strange issue yesterday with my pc becoming corrupted and unable to boot, while I was working on music on my computer. everytime I try to boot it gives me the following error 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 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: 0xc000000e

Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt
I do not have a cd drive on my desktop, it currently runs Windows 7 64-bit ultimate, I have tried to boot the system repair disc off of a usb, but it gives me similar errors saying it cannot find winload.exe, and refuse to repair my system even though it loads the recovery files. I will appreciate any help that I can receive on how to fix this.

Sorry to hear about your problems.
When you are booting from your USB do you get screen looking like this?
If so I take it that you have tried Startup Repair? You could also try System Restore before following my steps. 

Please make sure you are really booting from your USB by settings boot priority from BIOS.

If you see screen like that please do following steps:
1) Open Command Prompt. Black console box should appear.
2) Type in following command:
bootrec /osscan
and press Enter.
It should now list all operating systems installed along with yours. If no OS is reported please let me know
and don't proceed further. In case you have multiple OS on your machine I would like to know about that as well.
3) If reported operating system was correct, run following command:
bootrec /RepairBcd
4) After done, shutdown your machine, remove USB and boot to normal Windows.
Let me know if this works.

Try booting into Safe Mode.  If you are able to do this select Safe Mode with Command Prompt.


When the Elevated Command Prompt opens copy and paste bootrec /rebuildbcd in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.
You will see the following.
Scanning all disks for Windows installations.
This may take a while, please do not stop the scan.
If this was successful you will receive the following message.
Successfully scanned Windows installations.
Total identified Windows installations: 0
The operation completed successfully.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
