A few people have asked similar questions, i have read most of them but I have different circumstanses so please bear with me and if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated..
I backed up the system to my external HDD (F: )
, I than went in to the recovery options (Lenova laptop) . I than tried to restore my system to its 'initail state'.
About a second or two later it ....there was a flash error. I had no time to see what it was but it basically said it failed to restore the system
I switched off the laptop
, maybe I should of waited but Ive done this before a while back on a different laptop. Half way during the restore process it froze, than there was no progress in restoring the system as it remaided on 50%. So that is why I swichd it off from the power button. Now all I get is this Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. Windows failed to start.
A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.
To fix the problem: File: \windows\system32\winload.exe status: 0xc000000f.
I tried going in to advancced options but I cant seem to get past the message- I even ran memory diagnostics. Than it just takes me back to the message about buying the CD!!!
I searched these forum threads and googled it for hours, and everyone has similar problems but they go there to here in different ways which is why Im asking now if anyone could please help.
I tried getting the image file
on to a cd, but theres so many individual files
its well over 48.5Gb- I can't see the image file back up I know it should only be 1 file.
I read a few threads on image file, and a lot of people are saying to others there 'victims' of windows back-up...So please do tell me , if this is such a known issue why has it not been fixed. The laptop is not even a year old, theres nothing wrong with the hard drive. Why does it do this, and how can I get the system back without forking out hundreds of £'s?
This is quite urgent- in that being 1- its not my laptop
2- Theres no way I can spend more on repairing laptops as i just did on my own.... any suggestions?
