Error code Oxc0000185

Here is some info on fixing a corrupted UEFI Partition:
Firstly, boot from a Windows 8 recovery drive (CD/DVD/USB). If you don't have a recovery drive (and this is likely because most new machines don't come with one), then you will either have to install the drive into another Windows 8 machine or obtain a Windows 8 recovery drive, or boot from the recovery partition of the boot drive (If this option works at this point). Don't even bother with the automated recovery process, it will not work as it cannot find a Windows partition.
  1. You will need to choose the language and time settings.
  2. Choose 'Repair Your Computer'.
  3. Choose 'Troubleshooting'.
  4. Choose "Advanced Options'.
  5. Next choose 'Command Prompt'.
Next, we're going to use the DISKPART tool to verify that the UEFI partition has a drive letter assignment.
Enter 'DISKPART' (Enter)
(In this test case we removed all other drives except the boot HDD and DVD, so we know the disk 0 is our boot HDD)
DISKPART> sel disk 0
Disk 0 is now the selected disk.
DISKPART> list vol
There was no drive letter assignment to our UEFI partition (volume 3) so we need to assign a drive letter.
DISKPART> sel vol 3
Volume 3 is the selected volume.
1). If you know that you have a extra drive letter available use it here, otherwise skip to 2.
DISKPART> assign letter=E:
2). If you are unsure what the drive chain is or if you don't know what drive letters are avalable use:
DISKPART> assign
If all went well, DiskPart successfully assigned the drive letter or mount point. You can verify that a drive letter was assigned by "DISKPART> list vol" again.
Exit DiskPart tool (Enter EXIT)
Next, we need to change to the boot folder on the UEFI volume.
Change to the UEFI volume into the boot folder. Use drive E: here or whatever drive letter was assigned above.
cd /d E:\Boot\
Now we will need to enter three command lines to repair the BCD store.
For MBR drives: (Drives < 1TB)
  1. bootrec /fixboot
  2. bootrec /fixmbr
  3. bootrec /rebuildmbr
For GPT drives: (Drives > 1TB)
  1. bootrec /fixboot
  2. bootrec /rebuildbcd
That's it, if all went well the BCD store should be repaired, and the system will once again boot.

    Aspire 6930 has 320 GB harddisk,i faced some problem with Avasti Antivirus n i formatted the system to run my system smoothly, but now the problem is harddisk is showing only 128 GB. that too the partition...

    You can Reformat the system and REMOVE all partitions. Windows setup will create a new partition from available drive space. If you need to save your data,You can also use a utility like partition Magic and resize the partition. There is a trial version available at no charge. just google "partition magic"

    I cant format my computer

    If you are just talking about doing it from windows, then you can just go to Start>Control Panel>Administrator Tools>Computer Management then click on Disk Management, then click on the drive you want to format, right click on the drive, and then click FORMAT. You can also do this from My Computer if your computer detects the Hard drive.

    You will need a boot disk, such as Windows XP disk, or Partition Magic boot disk.

    Go into your BIOS and make sure that you can boot from your CD, probably best if you make this the first boot device too.

    If you have a windows XP disk then this is simple and you can format during the setup.

    Partition Magic or any other program, its a little more tricky beucase each one is different. I recommend downloading and burning this disk:

    This has pretty much every tool imagineable for bootup utilities. There are 3 or 4 differnt format tools.

    My Acer 4620 says no partion when I use the recovery disks?

    YOU NEED TO DO PARTITION INTO THE NEW HARDDISK AND ALSO FORMAT INTO NTFS FOR SURE. YOU ALSO NEED TO INSTALL WINDOWS XP,YOU CUD'VE DONE THE PARTITION AT THE TIME OF INSTALLATION BUT IF HAVEN'T DONE THAT THEN YOU CAN STILL DO IT :aSSUMING THAT YOU HAVE INSTALLED XP 1. Click on the Start button and select the Control Panel option.2. If in Classic control panel mode, double-click on the Administrative Tools icon and then double-click on Computer Management icon.
    If your control panel is in the Category view, click on Performance and Maintenance, then click on Administrative Tools, and finally double-click on theComputer Management icon.
    3. When the Computer Management screen opens, click on the Disk Management option under the Storage category.

    1. Right click on the space listed as unallocated.
    2. At the menu that comes up, click on the New Partition option.
    3. You will now be presented with a wizard as to how you would like the partition to be created. At the first screen press Next.
    4. At the following screen, determine if you need a primary or extended partition. For more information about these partitions you can read our partition tutorial listed above. Most people will be fine selecting Primary Partition. Select Primary Partition and press Next.
    5. At the next screen you will be prompted to type in how much of the unallocated space you would like used for the new partition. In my example, my unallocated space is 26.43 GB, so I can choose to make a partition of that entire amount of only use half and save the rest for another partition. Regardless, of what you decide, you need to enter a size in the Partition size in MB: field, or stick with the default size, and press the Next button.
    6. At the next screen select the drive letter you would like assigned to it, or use the default one given. When done, press the Next button. The drive letter that you assign here will be how you access the partition later.
    7. In this step you will determine how you would like the new partition to be formatted. For the most part you are advised to use the NTFS file system.
    8. Type a name in the Volume Label field that will be associated with this partition or leave it blank.
    9. Finally press the Next button and you will come to a summary screen. Review how the partition will be created, and if you are satisfied, press the Finishbutton to complete the creation and formatting of your new hard disk partition.

    When the computer finishes creating and formatting the new partition you will be presented with the Disk Management screen again and will see that you have a new partition and drive letter on your computer. Now you can use that drive to start storing your data.

    This is a Windows error code for a bad hard drive sector, basically you have a bad hard drive. However, if you're using or the restore disc has the partition magic program, it can give a false reading. So, during the install, reformat the hard drive, do a full NTFS format, not the quick format. If the drive will not format, then it's bad. If it does format, but will not install, it's likely that the restore disc is using the partition magic program, and you will need a regular XP disc in order to reload the system. The partition magic was another one of Microsoft's great and brilliant, going to change the future programs that came out hard, and die out in the same manor (hard).

    Problem installing OS

    I think Partition Magic 8 screwed up the hard drive. I suggest, try a different hd, or if you don't have one, go to and get like a 5 or 10GB hd and try that, cause if it works with a different hd, it proves that Partition Magic 8 screwed up the drive. Anything else, try a new IDE or SATA cable cause sometimes they go bad. try a different OS cd. Anything else I could say is bring it to a local computer store and see what they can do.
