You need to start the Bios configuration setting page on startup.

From bios configuration go to boot option and set the CD as first boot device.

Chose save and exit in bios (usually f10)

Restart with Windows CD inside and click a key when prompted "press a key to boot from CD".

If you do not get "press a key to boot from CD" that means that the Windows disk you are using does not start automatically, in this case get a different Windows setup CD.

If it does not boot from CD and you changes

It seems that the Vista Disk that you have is not a bootable one.. It is very tricky to solve your issue without a bootable disk.. I had a friend who had this same problem but on his system we just took out the RAM chips n reseated them firmly n it started working again...
\Boot\BCD Status: 0xc000000f was the exact same error code he had so i'm guessing you could give the memory reseating a try too...

Here's the link to downloading the user manual required to reseat the memory modules...

Take it to a computer repair shop and have them get it to reboot..thats going to be the easiest way to get it going again

  • Ronnie Houston Feb 12, 2009

    i think the hard drive is fried,you might go buy another hard drive and install it and then reboot it back to windows vista ultimate.somehow or other your hard drive was affected by something that caused it to shut down and the best thing to do is buy a new hard drive and start all over with the new one .

Startup Repair is a Vista recovery tool that can fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files, that might prevent Vista from starting correctly. When you run Startup Repair, it scans your computer for the problem and then tries to fix it so your computer can start correctly
Here's How:
1.
Boot into the System Recovery Options screen.
2. Click on the Startup Repair option. (See screenshot below)
Hi I'm Tony and my - bc647be.jpg
3. The Startup Repair tool will attempt to fix your computer and get it booting up again. (See screeshot below)
NOTE: Startup Repair might prompt you to make choices as it tries to fix the problem, and if necessary, it might restart your computer as it makes repairs. If repairs are not successful, you'll see a summary of the problem and links to contact information for support. Your computer manufacturer might include additional assistance information.

Hi,

You want to reach the startup screen that gives you "Boot from source? options.

Your laptop must be fully off, discharged and not in hibernate, which may be your case.

1.) Remove power cord from AC adapter.
2.) Remove battery from compartment, flip laptop over and there is a slidelock you move to one side and then remove the battery at the same time the slide is open.
3.) leave the battery out and the power cord off for ten minutes and as a final measure press the ON button... while everything is out and disconnected.
4.) Now, reinsert your battery and reattach the power adapter. Be prepared, before turning power on, to follow this step first.
a. When you power on the laptop goes through a power on self test or POST. It then executes a single BEEP. This beep is the signal you want to wait for an upon it executing press F8 as if it were a piano key, tap tap tap...(or in some cases F12).
b. Try F8 first and if there is no success, power off by holding the power button in for five seconds. Then, try the F12 function key.
5.) Power on and when you hear the beep immediately start pressing on the F8 Key like a piano key.

You should now be looking at the Asus recover screen where one of the options is to run the Asus System Recovery program.

That should do it. If not, comment back. I'll be online for another few hours. Comment back before you dismiss this one and move on as I can respond to your personal questions. Otherwise you won't see any future remarks by me.

Regards,
Worldvet

    When you reach the boot options screen in the manner I specified you also have an option Repair My Computer. Have you seen that option?

    You would also see boot from CD as well or some words to that affect, this would be when you insert your Vista disc and proceed to the normal install options (don't worry) you will get a prompt after a while that allows you to choose Repair vs. New Installation. Choose Repair and then you will be okay.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, you have to enter the CMOS/BIOS configuration to change the priority/first boot device from hard drive to CD, save & exit. Thereafter, pop in again the vista ultimate disc. This time, the computer will check and use the CD to boot itself allowing you to proceed with the repairs.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    That was the easy part. Let's try:


    • boot into Safe Mode (with command line utility enabled) by pressing F8 on boot;

    • in command console type "chkdsk /f /r", Enter;

    • press "Y" for yes at the prompt;

    • allow it to finish which may take some time.

    • alternately, try "fixmb"
    Should the above be non-corrective, pls click here to repair Vista Bootloader error and additional instructions.


  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Feb 12, 2009

    sorry, that should read as 'fixmbr'

Bootup problems


AS you boot up, try tapping the F8 key until you get a window giving you the option of multiple types of boots. Use the safe mode boot.
Then do a system roll back found in your system tools.

Windows vista will not boot on a toshiba laptop


First try boot options.

On start up press F8, you get different boot options listed.

Select "last known good configuration"
If this doesn't work, try "boot into Safe Mode". Then restart once safe mode loads.

If neither of these work, you may have to attempt a "repair" of windows.

Get a Windows Vista Operating system disk (same version of Vista, Home or Premium).

1. Boot from it (put it in CD drive and restart the laptop).

2. If you still get the same problem start up, you need to set the laptop to boot from CD.

3. Restart laptop, press Delete key or F2, or F12 (it should say one of these on the screen) to enter the Setup. or another key to get "boot options"

4. In Setup (BIOS) Use Right Arrow to find the Boot Options. Use the instructions to move the CD-ROM to first position, above HDD (hard drive). Press Esc, then F10 to save your changes and exit.

5. The Windows Setup CD Rom should now run. It should come to a screen where you are asked to press R to repair windows.

6. When it comes to the command prompt, restart the laptop

Hopefully the laptop should boot OK again.

Windows Vista Bootup problems


Did you (sorry for the underline....not sure how it got here) call Microsoft to have them give you another product key? This is the new procedure now. If you do a reinstall with your Windows Operating System, you have to call in to receive a new product key. This should fix it.

Good luck!

You could leave it off for a few hours, but there is a much faster solution that does pretty much the same thing. Turn your computer off, unplug ur AC and battery. Then press and hold the power button for about 15 seconds. This will drain all of the power remaining in ur computer. Then plug ur ac adapter back in and it should be fine.
