    factory *cough* restore
    ERROR: 0x4001100200001005
    hardware (hard drive, cpu, memory) passed testing
    swapped boot device to CD, no change
    used F11 for recovery, gives error even faster at 0%
    crashes (error) at 0% no matter what

    still to try:
    (+) bootable version of Partition Magic (is there one? should be with all the lack-of-a-frikkin-floppy systems now.)
    (+) taking it to the lil' Korean PC shoppe for repair

    That's all I've got. The swappy boot device idea showed up searching for error 0x4001100200001005 as a HP tech support fix which didn't work in this case. Recovery CD's are in excellent condition, no scratches, no fingerprints, no dust.

    Secondary issue: I'd love to put Windows 2000 instead of Vista 'cept the lack of a floppy disk makes that a little hard. (Checking Microsoft for a CD install boot disk version of disks 1-4) and remind myself to ALWAYS get the extended warranty from manufacturer. HP wants $49 for a one time tech call and $99 for another year of tech calls, but it doesn't help me under warranty for parts. Easier to spend $79 to just get it fixed. (re-partitioned, formatted, re-installed from one of the OEM CD's that the Koreans have. The OS may have eaten itself, but at least the install key is still good.)

    I'd use this 98 system that's sitting here, but the drive in the system is a different cable type and the solution would be to kit it for the front bay.

    My Solution to 0x4001100200001005: If you can't access it except for with the "recovery" CD, and you don't have a USB drive or a kitted drive to use, take it in for repair. It shouldn't be that much.

    Note to self: read how to create a bootable Windows 2000/XP install and MAYBE use the D: drive partition holding Vista to upgrade from 2000/XP

    2000 bootable:
    XP bootable:

    Some of this implies having a seperate working machine, maybe an old desktop, in order to make the work-around fixes like installing 2000 instead.. check the side or back of your system for a Microsoft key, even if you don't have a CD version of your OS and it's only on your hard drive, talk about justification for downloading an OS using E-mule or one of the TORRENT software downloads. (If you're trying to install an OS on top of itself, make sure that you discern RETAIL vs. OEM. Most likely if you don't have CD's, it's an OEM copy. Not that the softwares are that much different, it's the Product Activation Key that matters.)

I had the same problem with the recovery cd getting to 83% and giving me the 0x4001100200001005 error. I did 2 things. I cleaned the disk it was erroring on and also removed the ethernet cable from the adapter. I have been working for 4 days on this and parsing the internet for answers. Finally it worked. I don't know if it was the cleaning of the disk...which did not look dirty, or the unplugging the network cable.

When doing a operating system recovery, I have noticed that if you save all of the files that you can first, Then run kill disk free software, then use a partion software like partition magic found on hirens boot cd making only 1 partition on the hardrive by eliminating hidden recovery partion , Then let it run sometimes it can take up to 8 hours running the recovery dvds do not stop trying, That it works. I have tried this on a gateway,hp,compaq and it has always worked, most of the time the first or second attempt of the recovery dvd run. You must make the hardrive only 1 partition or the recovery disk will read the old recovery partition and stop the recovery process. Make sure your disk are very clean also and sometimes the dvd/cd player needs to be cleaned with cd/ dvd player cleaning disk can be purchased at walmart,meijer or on line pretty cheap and usefull cleaning tool can be used on all dvd/cd players most of the time.

Hirens boot cd utility can be found all over the internet, Kill disk is free from there website as well!

I hope this helps someone!
Just be patient it can be a process!

    Also with a hp laptop if you leave it alone to run the last disc for 2-6 hrs it will kick back in and finish your factory recovery!

Why erro 0x4001100200001005 when trying to install on new hard drive

This error comes up if you have replaced the branded drive with an oem one, the original drive is watermarked and the OEM one is not, the restore disks look for this watermark, and will not install if it cannot find it, it then gives you the error above

Error code 0x4001100200001005

"error 0x4001100200001005 if problems persists contact Dell support"
The reason you get a 0x400 error is because the OEM hard drive was replaced with a retail hard drive. OEM drives are "tattooed" or branded.. and the recovery media will search for it before installing. Prevents the spread (aka pirating) of OEM recovery media to computers that it did not ship with.

I got the same error when restoring an Inspiron 2330 Touch using the DVDs I created when the system was new.
In my case I had to boot to a Windows OS DVD, go into recovery console and open DISKPART
Perform the following steps to wipe the disk:
In recovery console, type DISKPART
At the diskpart prompt, type LIST DISK
Note the number of the disk you want to restore the OS to
Type SELECT DISK 0 (0 or whatever the number of the disk is)
It will say "Disk 0 is the selected disk"
When it finishes, exit, and retry the restoration.

This error is when you try to use OEM recovery disks with a non OEM hard drive. The company recovery disks will not work, they do this to prevent software fraud. Sorry to say you will have to purchase a copy of windows and start over :(

Unable to restore back to factory image read error

Are you using Factory CD/DVD or Made from utlity Disks or from hard drive utility option.
This seems to be a CD read error.
I found the same error code need help for posted for HP, Compaq, Gateway, ETC.
ALL new setups with the MAKE RECOVERY DISK UTILITY and NO factory disks.
Factory recovery disks are available for $60 and up from manufacturers.
Other option is Install Retail OS - get drivers from manufacturer - Install software you want to use.
Other option is expensive but reliable.
Factory option would be for your system only.

Getting the error 0x4001100200001005 while performing the recovery

The HP site indicates that the error refers to the Disks that you are trying to use to recover the system.
If you have access to the recovery partition, then try the restore from there.
Normally, the restore has a media option and a hard disk option. The media option is dependent on the discs you ceated. If those disks are scratched, dirty or in any way not readable, you will get this error. Yoiu can retry the install and see if it resolv3es itself

My 0xc000000c "Restore Failed" prompt seemed to be the result of disk surface damage on the restore disk. After burning the restore disk to a new disk, the restore proceeded normally. Try making a copy of the original restore disk to a known good blank disk.

Error 0x400 100 130000 1002 while restoring factory image HP

I am assuming you are trying to reinstall Vista. Apparently, HP's recovery partition is less than perfect and the recovery disc you created is probably worthless. (and you can NOT make another one, they only let you make one!) You are not the only person to have this issue.

Here are some things you can try:
1) Borrow an OEM version of Vista from someone...anyone. It sounds like you are proficient with PC's and maybe you know someone who works in IT. Use your product key (25 digit key code) and you should be able to reinstall.

2) if you like Vista, buy yourself an OEM version. It will not have all the factory (HP, Dell, Acer, whatever) BS on it. It will positively work because your hardware if fine.

3) Put XP on it. Personally, I think Vista is a mess. Microsoft is working on "OS7" and soon Vista will be like "Millennium".

Sorry it's not an easy fix, but glad your hard drive and memory show no errors.
