Question about Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate for PC

Windows 7 failed to start File: \Boot\BCD Status: 0xc0000225

Hello all, I bought a HP laptop, which came with Windows 7 and with one partition (C). “Language” of windows wasn’t English, that’s why I decided to format a laptop, to install a Windows 7 English and to create two partitions – one for OS and the other one for my personal data. Then I have done it……… I have installed Windows 7, I have installed drivers, software, etc, but after rebooting everything was crashed… I do not know why, and what happened, but windows failed to start. I have got the following massage: “ Windows boot manager Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. File: \Boot\BCD Status: 0xc0000225 Info: an error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data. “ Reinstallation of the Windows doesn’t help. Windows can’t start. I can “log in” into Windows environment only by one more time formatting and installing it. Please note, that I don’t have a “recovery disk”. “Disc Management” shows , that - All partitions are “Dynamic”; partition C, where I have installed OS is a dynamic as well. Most probably, I have changed it during resizing of the partition…. - is it ok, if there is no “SYSTEM” word near “C” partition, where is noted – “Boot, Page File, Crash Dump)? - Why there is no “Primary partition” in Disk 0 ???? Why all is “Simple volume” ? Please note that “SYSTEM” volume came from factory. I do not know it’s contain. Please, help me to solve the problem. I haven’t met such an issue before. Thanks in advance.

try a program like Norton PartitionMagic (which costs about 60 dollars) or the free GParted (which is a live cd. you should download it and burn it to a cd with a program like nero or alcohol120%)

SOURCE: about creating setup disk

Nop sorry you cant do that. Even if you could you would end up with the same operating system that you have now which i pressume is playing up and running slow?

Some manufacturers put a recovery partition with the install files on that. All you have to do is boot from it
If you go to the control panel then sysytems and maint and then admin tools then computer management then disk management you should be able to see if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive.

If you do then there will be an option in bios or during boot f12 maybe) to boot from it.

If not then you need to have a vista disk to install. The manfacturer should be able to provide one for you or reinstalll vista onto the hd for you.

hope that helps?

SOURCE: Windows failed to start.

You're getting that error message because the boot files on your hard drive (the required inaccessible device) are corrupted.

When first booting, press F8 repeatedly. Will the computer let you go into safe mode? If not, without the installation cd, you're kinda between a rock and a hard place. However, you can download a (free) vista recovery disk (repair only) from the people at easyBCD:

Just follow the directions to do a start up repair.
If that works, by all means, make yourself a recovery cd before doing anything else.

A general group of people will initiate a fresh install upfront. However, it is to inform you that the problem is not as severe as it seems. To recover from the situation, it would require a Windows installation disc, as you are already incapable to boot into Windows. Listed below are the possible solutions for this issue, depending upon the reason of its occurrence.
  • Rebuild Boot Configuration Data (BCD)
  • Configure Active Partition
  • Restore Master Boot Record (MBR)
Rebuild Boot Configuration Data (BCD)
The resolution is helpful, when your system is facing a spoiled Boot Configuration Data (BCD). In such a situation, it is recommended to rebuild this component of windows through command prompt. See below for a systematic procedure.
  • Insert Windows Installation Disk and Restart your computer
  • Select Time, Language, and click on the Next button
  • Click on the words stating Repair your computer in the lower left corner
  • Identify and access your system drive (For Example, C: D: E: etc.) and click Next
  • In the System Recovery Options box, choose Command Prompt
  • In the command prompt, type the command BOOTREC /REBUILDBCD and hit Enter
Configure Active Partition
The error 0xc0000225 may also result due to a wrong partition selected. The instance is that a user divides its storage device into several partitions. The BIOS must access the partition having system files on it (also called as System Drive). While accessing a wrong partition, it would end up in this issue.
  • Insert Windows Installation Disk and Restart your computer
  • Carry out the above given steps to reach System Recovery Options box
  • Among several system recovery options, choose Command Prompt
  • To set a correct partition, type the command line DISKPART and press Enter key
  • In the listed partitions, determine the one to be active and type following command line
  • SELECT PARTITION X (Let X be your desired active partition) and press Enter
  • Once the partition is selected, type the command line ACTIVE and then press Enter
  • Type QUIT and press enter to exit and then Restart the system
Restore Master Boot Record (MBR)
MBR is a boot sector containing information of logical partitions and file systems. An agitating MBR can also prevent you from normally booting into your Windows operating system. If this is the issue with your PC, try following steps to restore your MBR.
  • Insert Windows Installation disk and Restart your computer
  • Corry out the above given steps to reach System Recovery Options box
  • Among several system recovery options, choose Command Prompt
  • Enter the Diskpart and type the command line SELECT DISK 0 and press Enter
  • Now type LIST VOLUME and press Enter key to view a new list
  • Locate the CD/DVD-ROM under Type column and note down its letter under LTR column
  • Close Diskpart by typing Exit and pressing Enter.
  • Now access the CD Drive by typing F: and hitting Enter (Let F: be the CD/DVD-ROM letter)
  • Type and enter CD BOOT and then DIR to view the directory within the drive
  • Now type and enter BOOTSECT /NT60 SYS /MBR
  • Type Exit and press Enter
At the completion of process, you will see a success message saying, Bootcode was successfully updated on all targeted volumes. Now you must not have any issue while booting into your Operating system.

BOOTMGR IS COMPRESSED


Validate and Fix the File System
This runs the check disk program to detect and attempt to repair problems on one partition. For example, to repair the C: drive:
At the prompt type chkdsk c: /r
Repair the Boot Process
Typically this is used if Windows doesn't start and you can't get to the safe mode menu. You might also replace the Master Boot Record (MBR) and boot sector if you suspect a virus infection. There are four options:
New MBR - Insert a new generic MBR without changing the partition table.
At the prompt, type: bootrec /FixMbr
New Boot Sector - Insert a new Windows 7/Vista compatible boot sector. It will automatically insert the right type of sector for the file system type (NTFS, FAT32, etc.)
At the prompt, type: bootrec /FixBoot Rebuild BCD - Rebuild the Boot Configuration Data (BCD). The BCD controls which partition boots. This option will let you select which installations to include in the BCD.
At the prompt, type: bootrec /RebuildBcd Find OSes - Scan the system for all OS installations that are compatible with Vista/2008 and will also show those that are currently included in the BCD.
At the prompt, type: bootrec /ScanOs
in the end type in C:/expand bootmgr temp
