SOURCE: Installing windows XP - Error encountered

Can you reboot and get into windows or is now corrupt?

What do you mean by 'uninstalled XP'??

You cant uninstall it unless you format the drive, in which case the recovery discs are now probably useless as they rely on a folder on the HDD called i386.

Recovery discs normally dont have the OS on them, they rely on the I386 folder to gather info about the computer and then restores it to the state when it was new.

If you can acess the system, reboot and go into the bios and change the boot sequence to CD, then insert the first recovery disc. then save the settings and the computer will reboot and start the recovery process again, this should clear up the error.

If it does not it will be because the i386 folder is missing in which case you can either explore the recovery discs for it or you will have to buy a copy of Windows XP.

SOURCE: Black Screen Error, Windows Vista Dosenot Boot

You have a complicated issue that is very difficult to repair using this one way conversation method. I must, however, compliment the detail of your description.

From what I can see, you have a problem with one of two, or possibly two of two things. One message says your network card is not functioning properly, the other says your hard drive is not functioning properly.

Either of these issues may be either the device which has failed or the software which controls it has failed.

If you have access to another machine, you may be able to remove the hard drive and test it (this would be my first choice, since a recovery disk should still work even if the Network card does not).

By testing the harddrive, you can be sure it is working properly. If it is working properly, the next test would be on the memory. Believe it or not, memory often will stop a system from reading data off the DVD drive during recovery or installation of the operating system.

This one would be much easier for me to help you diagnose if I had it in my possession, and I'm certain most techs will tell you the same thing.

Additionally, the recovery disk may actually be bad, and this can be investigated with a visual inspection. Look for scratches and fingerprints on the disk.

And often, Windows Vista does not install unless the BIOS is set to the INSTALL OS mode. Different machines do this differently; and again, if you had another machine that was working, it would help.

Good luck.

Sounds like you corrupted the MFT (master file table) on the flash drive. Format the flash drive and start over. You could also try something like GetDataBack after you flash the drive to recovery your data.

Windows 8 error code 0xc000000e


Hi I have this error code 0xc000000e windows 8, You get three options,
1. Enter to retry
2. Press F8 for start up settings
3. press F9 for to use a different operation system.
First two options do nothing, F9 will restart computer, and the I can boot from the boot disk. I have tried to rebuild the startup files, from the disk nothing is working. I can't get into the Safe mode. Guess only option is save all files to a back up HDD, I even tried to restore to a past date.

H:\$MFT KEEPS POPING IN MY PC


MFT stands for Master File Table. NTFS (New Technology File System) uses it in order to record references of all files and folders of the corresponding volume. It is the most significant metadata structure of NTFS volume. It is the point from where NTFS installed system starts from to access any file. Any corruption caused to MFT will lead to Data Recovery routine. When MFT gets corrupted, user may fail to access files and carry out usual operations like renaming, deleting or opening the file with an error similar to:
“H:\ $MFT is corrupt and unreadable. Please run the chkdsk utility.”
The error is specific to Windows XP and 2000. Users can also encounter the same error message as a Windows pop-up balloon at the lower-right corner of computer screen.
  • To resolve the issue, we need to first take full data backup and check for its consistent status. If media fails to restore data or the backup operation faces some difficulty, Data Recovery Software will be required to recover.
  • We can start Recovery Console by starting our system using the Windows operating system disk.
  • We can press R to select the repair option on the Welcome to setup screen.
  • We need to specify Administrator password, if there is no administrator password just press Enter.
  • We can then use chkdsk /H:Drive Letter: through command prompt and try repairing the damaged MFT.
Chkdsk /H: acts upon the file system and attempts to repair the damage. But it can cause more damage if it fails. In such cases, we need to format the drive and restore data from backup. If backup has not been efficiently taken or can’t offer full restoration, Data Recovery applications can help.

Error 0xc00000e9, and vista no genuine?


That has happened because the files that have been used for the Themes are NOT Microsoft files. Also they are not Digitally Signed as "good" by MS either. This is not really a fault just an indication. What I would do is do a system restore back to a time when PC was A OK.
Startup PC, press F8 at instant of turn on... choose Safe Mode. when you are asked if you want safe desktop or system restore choose restore, when you get to the restore menu, choose a date BEFORE you had problems, in any event, there may only be one or two to choose from. Just follow the instructions and you should be back to working with all that behind you.

Raw file system


To fix the problem
Disable the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature in the CPUCool program or similar utility.
Boot to the Windows 2000 or XP installation CD, and at the Startup menu, press R for repair.
In the Recovery Console, type the following:
chkdsk /p
When the CHKDSK process has finished, reboot the computer.
Run the program again.
The error should no longer be reported unless you start using the S.M.A.R.T error detection feature again.

Error occurs with PartitionMagic 8.0
If you encounter Error 1516 with PartitionMagic 8, first run CHKDSK /F on the affected partition. For instructions on how to run CHKDSK, read How to Run Microsoft's CHKDSK from the Command Line. If this does not fix the error, try running PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch, which causes file system errors to be ignored.
To run PartitionMagic with the /IFC switch
Boot from the first PartitionMagic rescue disk.
When you are prompted to insert the second rescue disk, press Ctrl+C to drop to the command (A:>) prompt.
Insert the second PartitionMagic rescue disk and type the following:
pqmagic /ifc
Press Enter.
please go ahead and try the above steps may be it will fix it

File system error 1073741521


As per the error message you had received, I beleive that the File System (Partition Table) in your Hard Drive is curropted because of which you are unable to store any data.

The only option available is to burn the requried data into DVDs and perform full recovery and reinstall the Operating System to factory default settings.

This will format the Hard Drive and will also recreate the File System (Partition Table).

Its NOT the hard drive itself. Its the master boot record on the hard drive that has failed. The master boot record is like an index or an address book of a hard drive. It hold records of whats on the hard disk and the physical location of files and directory's. What most likely happened was the computer was NOT shut down correctly and a power serge corrupted the master boot record or someone accidentally or purposely deleted files they should not have. If you are not able to follow jmorgan123 advice, the easiest way to fix this is to re-install windows using the recovery disk (operating system cd), HOWEVER you WILL loose all your files on your hard drive as you will need to reformat your drive during the re-install. If you are unsure how to install windows put the system recovery disc in the drive and follow the on screen prompts. If you still can get your computer working after you try a re-install of windows, maby your best bet is to return the computer under the warranty.
