    Either try obtaining another system recovery disk or try replacing the hard drive another.
    Another think you might try is to lok at the disk in another computer to see if you find damaged files?

Dell error Ox0000225


An unexpected error has occurred.
Boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

how-to-fix-boot-error-0xc0000225.png
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.

No arranca windows por el problema de windows root\system32 \hal.dll.


Hi! Welcome to www.fixya.com.
You need to get an Windows Operating system XP
Option 1:
Boot from your CD and follow the directions to start Recovery Console. Then:
Attrib -H -R -S C:\Boot.ini DEL C:\Boot.ini BootCfg /Rebuild Fixboot
Option 2:
Boot from your CD and follow the directions below to start Recovery Console.
Insert the Setup compact disc (CD) and restart the computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R.
If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the Recovery Console. When prompted, type the Administrator password. (if you didn't create one try pressing enter).
At the system prompt, type Recovery Console commands; type help for a list of commands, or help commandname for help on a specific command.
Most likely you will need to expand the file from the CD. The command would be expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll. Substitute d: for the drive letter of your CD. Once you have expanded the file type "exit" to exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.
TIP: Recovering Windows XP using the Recovery Console
Hope this resolution fix the problem on your computer. Thanks for contacting Fixya. Bye for now.

The hard drive crashed will not start


If the hard drive have crashed meaning that the hard drive itself is damaged, then your solution is to replace a new harddrive. If you do have a recovery disc already made, or one is provided then you will have to use that disc once the hard drive is replaced with the new one, and follow the procedure to reinstalled the operating system. If the original hard drive had crash and does no work anymore (where the bios/computer cannot detect it) and you have important data that you would like to retrive, there are places such as office depot, bestbuy, where they can help you send it to a recovery file center to recover files from your damaged hard drive. Do not attemp to fix or open a damaged harddrive, you can forever damage the files on the cyclinder disc. 2) Now if your harddrive crash in term as windows just crashing and you cannot get into your operating system and the bios is still able to detect the hard drive, and it's giving you a error message, then you will only need to reinstall, or do a windows recovery through your recovery disc, If you do not have a recovery or made the disc, then you will need to buy a new operating system software. If you computer does not start meaning no display on the screen at all, then please replay back. That is a different story.

My laptop will not boot, instead it goes to a blue screen that states it is not able to access the hive.


I think this is the exact error : Stop: c0000218 {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file): \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE or its log or alternate

CAUSE
This issue can occur if the System or Software hive for the Windows XP installation is missing or damaged.

RESOLUTION:

To resolve this issue, please follow one of the following methods.

Use the Recovery Console Tool:


To restore a damaged registry hive, use the Recovery Console to restore the backup copy of the hive from the Repair folder. The Repair folder contains a copy of the system's registry hives that were created after the first successful startup of Windows XP.

WARNING : Although data should not be affected by the following procedure, you may need to restore changes you previously made to programs or system settings since the first time you successfully started Windows XP.

To replace the damaged registry hive and restore the backup copy of the hive from the Repair folder: Start your computer to the Recovery Console. You need your original XP CD, boot your PC from the CD and press R when it say 'Press 'R' to use recovery console.


In Recovery Console, change to the c:\Windows folder.

Type cd system32\config , and then press ENTER.

Type dir system , and then press ENTER.

If you cannot run the preceding command successfully (because the file is missing), skip to step 3. If you can run the preceding command successfully, type ren system system.bak , and then press ENTER.

Type copy c:\windows\repair\system , and then press ENTER.

NOTE : If the message that you received referred to the software file, replace "system" with "software" in the preceding command. For example, you would type copy c:\windows\repair\software (instead of copy c:\windows\repair\system ), and then press ENTER.

You should receive a "One file copied" informational message. For additional information about how to use Recovery Console during startup, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
Q307654 HOW TO: Install and Use the Recovery Console for Windows XP

IMPORTANT : If you encounter problems when you run the preceding commands, you may need to use the Change Directory command ( cd ) one folder at a time before you run the preceding commands. For example, type cd system32 , press ENTER, type cd config , and then press ENTER.

Type exit , and then press ENTER to quit Recovery Console and restart the computer.

i understand this looks a litle daunting, please get back to me if you have any trouble with this.

Advent 7113 laptop very slow would like to return it to factory settings but dont know how help


After researching all the information online, I have put up the maximum possible detailed steps to help you out:

Your Advent computer uses the latest recovery system that doesn't require any CDs or DVDs to restore your PC to it's original factory condition.

1) Restart your Computer.
2) Press F10 repeatedly until the message "Starting System Recovery" is displayed.
3)
The recovery will load and display a menu of options:

(a)
Non-destructive recovery: this option will restore Windows, supplied applications, and drivers. This option will not destroy your documents or programs. These will be backed up along with the registry. These are restored at the end of the recovery process.

To access the recovery options below that erase all data from the computer, click the Advanced button.

(b)
System Recovery - No format: this will reinstall Windows®, supplied applications and drivers. It will move your files to a folder called "My old disk structure". Any applications (except those supplied) will need to be reinstalled.

(c)
System Recovery - Quick format: this option will erase your hard drive including your personal files. Windows, supplied applications and drivers will be reinstalled.

4)
Select the Non-destructive recovery option and press Next.
5)
You will be informed about System Restore in Windows, click Yes.
6)
The recovery will begin. Once this is complete click Restart.


Here are some additional information:

a) Press the ALT and D keys at the Windows style recovery menu options to access a command prompt. This will allow access to C: drive.

b) The command prompt will default to c:\minint\system32 where you can run a variety of tools including CHKDSK.EXE.

c)
For more information on these options, please read the Advent recovery trouble-shooter.

Advent recovery trouble-shooter:

If a user is experiencing recovery problems on an Advent PC, then try to follow these steps.

Note: These steps will remove all personal data and all applications installed after the PC was purchased. Where possible ensure that all data and personal files are backed up BEFORE trying these destructive diagnostic steps.

1)
Check the integrity of the recovery CD, or the update CD.
2)
It is possible to verify the integrity of the recovery CD, or the update CD from within the Recovery programme.

Boot from the recovery C.
b)
At the ‘Press R to display system recovery options’, press ‘R’.
c)
Once in the System Recovery screen, press ALT + D to access the WinPE command prompt.
d)
Type in Xcopy D:\*.* /E /V C:\ and press Enter.
e)
D:\ is the CD ROM drive letter
C:\ is the HDD
/E copies everything
/V verifies the data with a CRC check
.
f) If there is an error with the CD, then you will get the message:

File creation error – Data error (cyclic redundancy check).

g) If there are no errors, then you will be left at a prompt again.

3)

4)
At the ‘Press R to display system recovery options’, press ‘R’.
5)
Once in the System Recovery screen, press ALT + D to access the WinPE command prompt as below:

Type COPYSI and hit Enter. This will unhide the user's smartimage (this may take a few minutes to complete).
7)
Return to Windows® & copy the contents of the C:\Update CD\ folder to CD (N.B. Do not copy the ‘Update CD’ folder itself). Ask the user to label this ‘UPDATE CD’.
8)
Start with the recovery CD ROM in the CD drive.
9)
At the ‘Press R to display system recovery options’, press CTRL + BACKSPACE to get the hidden menu as below:
10)
Choose option:4 (Clear the partition table of drive 0x80). Once you have selcted this, you will be returned to the Press 'R' screen.
11)
Choose option:5 (Erase the Master Boot Record of drive 0x80). Once you have selcted this, you will be returned to the Press 'R' screen.
12)
Choose option:7 (Create a primary partition on drive 0x80). Do not restart the machine during this process. Option 7 may sit for up to 10 minutes with a flashing cursor as it creates the partition. If the HDD LED is flashing, then you know that the process is proceeding.
13)
Once the HDD partition has been created you will be returned to the ‘Press R to display system recovery options’ screen. Press ‘R’.
14)
The recovery should go straight into a full destructive recovery, and will ask for the update CD which we have created.


Hope this Helps.

  9. Open one of these folders to locate a Snapshot subfolder. The following path is an example of a folder path to the Snapshot folder: C:\System Volume Information\_restore{D86480E3-73EF-47BC-A0EB-A81BE6EE3ED8}\RP1\Snapshot
  10. From the Snapshot folder, copy the following files to the C:\Windows\Tmp folder:
    • _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM
    • _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM
  11. Rename the files in the C:\Windows\Tmp folder as follows:
    • Rename _REGISTRY_USER_.DEFAULT to DEFAULT
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SECURITY to SECURITY
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SOFTWARE to SOFTWARE
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SYSTEM to SYSTEM
    • Rename _REGISTRY_MACHINE_SAM to SAM
These files are the backed up registry files from System Restore. .

Part Three loadTOCNode(3, 'moreinformation'); In part three, you delete the existing registry files, and then copy the System Restore Registry files to the C:\Windows\System32\Config folder:
  1. Start Recovery Console.
  2. At the command prompt, type the following lines, pressing ENTER after you type each line: del c:\windows\system32\config\sam

    del c:\windows\system32\config\security

    del c:\windows\system32\config\software
