I bought this computer from a yard sale. It had windows Vista on it at the time and 6 user accounts. The accounts with administration rights were password protected. So since I didn't need any of the data, I wanted to do a clean windows 7 install. Well I tried and everything was working fine. Then it froze at 59%. It stayed there for an hour and then it said an error. Forgot the error code. I tried it again and same thing happened. However after this time, trying to boot up, it gave me the 0xc000000f error. I've tried to boot from cd and it won't let me now. Won't boot into hard drive. I downloaded hirens cd on a usb and finally got it to work but unsure how to use it. I tried installing windows 7 using another usb device and it says disk failure then goes to the 0xc000000f code screen. I've been researching for days and still no answer. Please help.

0xc000000f is a "No Such File" error

So, most likely either your W7 recovery media is bad, or there's a problem with the system.
