Windows 7: problem with status 0xc0000225

05 May 2013   #1

Windows 7 64bit Ultimate
problem with status 0xc0000225


i have the same problem with status 0xc0000225. I wondered why this is because the recovery partition is at the same position than before but now it looks like it is because i created an extended partition.

I first had to replace my 180GB SSD with a 1TB SSHD because i only have one disc space. I did this with clonezilla and windows ran fully fine on it then. But i want to use all space and need 3 partitions.

I tried it this way:

8GB Recovery Partition win 7
100MB Windows Boot
100GB Win
120GB Fast Backup
772GB Remaining partition

Unfortunately i learned that its not possible to have more than 4 partitions. I was told to create an extended partition and place logical partitions inside. I did this. I deleted all partitions except the recovery and the 100mb boot one. Then i created a big extended and put the 3 logical inside.

Now, when i start i get this error. I thought ok, its normal because windows doesnt live anymore. But the recovery partition is there still. So i dont know whats the problem.

Why cant windows work with logical partitions? I mean extended partitions were created to circumvent the problem of only having 4 partitions. So it should be doable to install windows on such partition isnt it?

I cant make the partitions basic because then i only can create 4 partitions. The 100mb partition cant be deleted can it?

I heard that windows 8 even creates 5 or 6 small boot partitions. But thats maybe some different technique with UEFI and so on.

So what can i do now? I would like to use the recovery partition to install windows again on the logical partition. But the way it looks in this thread windows cant even work with logical partitions.

Any help?
