I recently tried to reinstall windows, because of the ethernet lan on my motherboard not working anymore. I thought reinstalling would fix the issue, but I was wrong. I managed to get the install to work, after failed attempts, by doing a clean install, using a usb drive. I have 2 separate 1tb hard drives. After the install, my original one was not being detected anymore. I bought a usb ethernet adapter for the time being, while waiting on my ethernet card to arrive.


Everything was fine, I was just going to replace the hard drive that wasn't showing up and move on. I shut down the pc last night, it instantly restarted and tried to reinstall windows again. The reinstall failed and my screen started flashing. After a period of time, and multiple restarts, the repair screen popped up. It says, "Error code: 0xc0000001" My options on this screen are, "Enter to try again, F8 for start up options, and F9 for different operating system".  I'm not sure if both hard drives are corrupted or if something else is the issue. I'm currently sitting on this screen in fear of restarting and seeing my monitor flash. Any help would be appreciated thanks.


My specs are,


OS - Win10

GPU - 970 gtx

Motherboard - AMD3+

Processor - AMD 8350

Ram - Two 4gb

The 0xc0000001 error means that the operation was unsuccessful.


First - disconnect the hard drive that isn't being used to boot/store the OS (disconnect both cables) and try again.

You can also try to reinstall Windows on the lone hard drive (if the other one was the problem - then the install should go well.  If not, then there's other things to look at).


You can also run a hard drive diagnostic on both drives ( http://www.carrona.org/hddiag.html )


Also, try the bootable memory test here:  http://www.carrona.org/memdiag.html


If able to get into Windows, try the rest of the free diagnostics here:  http://www.carrona.org/hwdiag.html
