Oct 29, 2015

When I boot into win 10 I get a black screen that says:

Windows Failed to start
Status: 0xc000000f

When I boot to a Win 10 Install disk I select:

English, next
Repair your computer
Advanced options
Startup Repair
It says it's Diagnosing problems
Attempting repairs
Startup Repair couldn't repair your PC.

What can I do to fix the boot up problem?

I have tried to upgrade from win7 to win10 after copying the files and the system restarts, I will get the error 0xc000000f. I have both win7 and win10 disks and the automatic repair would not work.

Apparently this has to to with some bios settings, I have tried to follow the guide but I do not have all the options to described in the guide below.

Installation :: Can't Boot - Error 0xc000000f

Oct 18, 2015

Yesterday I removed dual booting Linux and after that my Windows 10 won't boot up. I have tried everything. The cmd commands: bootrec /FixMbr; bootrec /FixBoot; bootrec /RebuildBcd; Bcdboot commands and everything. Then I tried Refreshing PC what says: Drive where Windows is installed is locked. Please unlock it.....

Startup repair just scans for a short period and then says: Couldn't fix the problem. I can't Access normal Recovery options, so I'm using a recovery flash drive. I have tried several Live CDs but none of them won't fix the problem. I can access the UEFI Bios, but idk what to change there. I don't want to fresh install Windows, unless it's the only option, because it contains important data.

Computer Blue Screened With Error 0xc000000f - HDD Failure

May 7, 2015

I recently built a computer on an $850 budget. I got it all put together, and I installed Windows 10 from a flash drive. It worked for a small while, then it blue screened with the error 0xc000000f (This was due to a HDD failure of some sort, so I replaced it and stopped receiving the error).

Now when I am booting up to install Windows 10 (because I swapped HDDs) it will act normally and proceed with the installation. The problem comes after it restarts to set everything up, and it wants me to install Windows like I hadn't tried to install it and as if it hadn't restarted.

Here are the specs for my computer (if it has anything to do with it):
Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-Z97X-GAMING 7 ATX LGA1150
Processor- Intel Core i7-4790K
RAM- Crucial Ballistix Sport 16GB

Shut Down When Electricity Failed / Now Does Not Start

Aug 4, 2015

On my desktop PC, ugraded to 10 on Friday morning, been using all weekend no problems. On Monday we had a winter wonderland, was checking snow history when electricity went off momentarily. PC shut down. I had perhaps 5 wiindows open at the time.PC powered back with message that windows had not shut down properly, it would repair, said it couldn't do, and since then will only start , and say restoring your previous version of windows....over and over again.

I got on this laptop,downloaded correct 32 bit version of 10, burnt disk from iso. can boot into that disk no problems. Have run all the recovery options. Reset - no changes made. Repair startup - no can do. Restore previous - cannot do either to 10 or 7. have run out of options. Even attempting the last thing I want to do, Install, does not work.if I choose upgrade option, it tells me to remove installation disk and start nnormally which I cannot do.

Unable To Access Settings - Application Has Failed To Start

Aug 10, 2015

When I try to access Settings, I get the following error:

ms-settings:// The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.

I tried the command-line suggested and right after I hit enter, I get a flash of a window popping up on my screen and then it's gone. It's so quick I can't see what it's trying to open.

Windows Update Failed

Oct 20, 2015

So after a stressful day at school I got home anxiously waiting to get on my computer, only to find out that after a recent update my computer has completely stopped responding. Now in the first few hours of dealing with this problem I was able to access the Windows repair options, only to find out that all of them failed. I was unable to do a system restore, nor diagnose my computer or even nuke it.

Later on things eventually got worse because now I'm not even able to access the options to fix my computer anymore or even downgrade to Windows 8.1. All that pops up after my computer starts up is "An operating system wasn't found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system.

NumLock Status At Logon From Cold Boot

Dec 9, 2015

I chose to log in use the PIN option. I like typing with the num pad.

At the log on screen Num Lock was always off.

1. Checked the BIOS settings:
Ensured that the NumLock status in the BIOS was set to enabled

2. Modified the registry a few times
Key: HKEY_USERS.DEFAULTControl PanelKeyboard
I set the String Value: InitialKeyboardIndicators
to 2
then I tried 80000002
then I tried 2147483650

So I have partial success, where NumLock is enabled after a restart, but it is not enabled after a cold-boot.

Customization :: Trash Icon Isn't Changing To Reflect Status?

I tried the registry fix that worked last time on Windows 7 to fix this issue of custom icons not automatically changing, but apparently it cropped up again in Windows 10, and is also not fixable via adding the ",0" to the end of the registry entry.

Windows Not Booting After Failed Hardware Upgrade

Dec 4, 2015

I've had issues with my CPU and mobo, so I got new ones from a friend, but there were vital pieces missing. I rebuilt my PC with all of its original parts as best as I could, and now Windows 10 is stuck at the logo with no circle. I followed my motherboard's manual for all the plug ins and whatnot, and everything seems to be in order, however the actions of my PC don't seem to demonstrate that.

Installation :: Could Not Install Revert Back To Windows 7 Failed

Aug 7, 2015

My Windows 7 was updating to Windows 10. When it appeared to almost be done configuring a message appeared stating the Windows 10 could not be installed and it was restoring the previous version of Windows.

Well that did not work. The pc will not boot up now. Instead I get: "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: <windows root>system32hal.dll Please reinstall a copy of the above file"

I hope I can add the file using the win7 dvd. I know I was getting low on hard drive space, but had cleared enough to have 4 gig or so free. It was either not mentioned anywhere or I missed how much hd space would be needed. Of course I am assuming that the install bombed due to this?

Windows Factory Setting Failed - Computer At 2% Turned Off

Sep 7, 2015

I had a lot of files so I decided to reset to factory settings. Computer at 2% turned off, so I tryed to turn it on again,but windows refused to start, it turned off after the manufacturer's logo showed, so I decided to download windows 10 installer [URL] ..... and put it into my USB. I tryed to reinstall windows through usb port, but it needs to turn on the windows that can not be launched (possibly due to incomplete reset to factory settings that might have deleted important windows files). How can I re-install windows 10 without needing to access windows?

Drivers/Hardware :: Devices Spontaneously Disappear / Acquire Error Status

Sep 8, 2015

Ever since I installed Windows 10 some of my devices will suddenly get errors and stop working until reboot or the driver will completely disappear (also goes comes back to normal after restarting).

These are the devices that I've had trouble with:b

- Touch Screen (HID-compilant touch screen) [Disappears]
- USB Ports [Gets Error 43]
- Bluetooth [Disappears]
- Unknown Device (Not sure what this is) ["Drivers not installed." Error 28.]

They all start having trouble at the same time, it's instantaneous and there is no other indicator for it other than the "Device Plug Out" sound. I've tried looking for new drivers with the Windows wizard, uninstalling and then selecting "Look for Hardware Changes" , and rebooting--which, as I've mentioned before, temporarily fixes this.

I've found topics exclusively for the USB Ports error, and the rest just seem to be fixed by everyone through reboot, but I want a permanent solution. Otherwise I'll consider going back to Windows 7 or just leave Windows altogether.

Installation :: Operating System Wasn't Found After Resetting Windows Failed

Aug 17, 2015

I have recently upgrade to Win 10 from windows 7 and it was running fine until it started booting with the analyzing and repairing windows screen. I had tried to get out of it by windows repair and by system restore but there were no points to restore too. I ended up trying the windows reset which failed when I selected to leave my files so then I tried the reset including removing my files. It failed part way through saying it could not complete the action and now when I boot up every time I get "An operating system wasn't found" etc. I do not have a windows CD or know my windows registration number.
