Windows 7: Bsod 0x000124, 0xc000000f, system recovery not compatible


15 Apr 2013   #1

Windows 7 home premium x64 (sp1 I think)
 
 
Bsod 0x000124, 0xc000000f, system recovery not compatible

Hi guys, first time posting. I have multiple errors and am mostly ignorant of all things OS based.

The problem:
A few nights ago, I put m pc into hibernate overnight, when I came back I got a blue screen, can't remember all the errors but one of them was 0x000124. It told me to to try a restart, so I did. I havent seen the bsod since then though. When I got in, I went through and selected startup normally, and got an error, saying windows failed to start, try repair install ( see attachment). Error 0xc000000f

I did this, I put my windows 7 home premium x64 in the optical drive, and booted from there, I selected language options etc., clicked repair install, and got the message this version of system recovery options is not compatible with your version of windows (see attachment). I've tried this multiple times with no luck.

What I've tried:
Using the x86 disc, checking i didn't install te wrong one. No change
Changing the boot order in the bios so the optical is at the top
Disconnecting all hard drives except my c: disk (an ocz agility 3 solid state)
Trying it over and over several times (can't blame a man for trying)
I ran chkdsk from the DVD, on each of the disks. D: ad some orphaned files, but tha was only games Data anyway. All the other disks ad no issue, but all of the,vfailed to write the event log, quoting status 50. (see attachment)
Reading through similar things on the forum and others, but I found them very difficult to follow,and didnt understand most of them.

The situation:
Sadly the c: drive as important docs on it that I can't afford to lose, and I can't really afford to replace any hardware (I read somewhere the 124 error means hardware failure). How can I fix this problem, and preferably kit my data, and install of windows (I'd prefer to avoid a clean install if possible, because thats a day of installing faf, which I can't afford at the moment)

I also won't get a chance to really get to the shop, to buy a DVD or anything like that to make a new disk, for a week or two, though could potentially send my girlfriend). I don't currently have an external hard drive bay or spare DVD

Other info:
The CPU was over clocked from 3.3ghz to 4.8ghz, but this was stable and has been for a long time, and burned in over a 56 hour burn test, and have had no other problems with it. I have reset this back to factory settings from bios, following this issue

The windows 7 disk, is retail, I use x64, home premium. It s the as,e dal it was installed from, and I think my installation has service pack 1 installed.


Please help, all help greatly appreciated. And sorry for any typos or autocorrects that I have missed.

Addendum: I can't find how to upload the photos I took on my iPad of tHe various errors. I will try and host them somewhere and link to them from work tomorrow
I also couldn't follow the instructions for the Bsod forum, as I can't start windows to set it to create a dump file

Alongwith what x BlueRobot asked for, it would be better if you can provide some more information.

Can you boot into windows? Even in safe mode? If so, post a screen capture image of the disc management window.
Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image

If you cannot boot into windows, we have to get it differently. Do you have access to another computer right now? If so, download Partition wizard Bootable CD (the last one in the link). Burn it in a blank CD or in a USB flash stick.

Boot into Partition Wizards GUI following this instructions. When you are on the last screen, take a camera snap of the screen and upload the snap here.

We need to see the partitions and parameters.

As above but wanted to add i think your problem with repair is because you are trying to repair a SP1 install with non SP1 media, if this is the case you can download updated install package and create a bootable flash drive which would work but if you are suffering hardware problem a repair install will not help
Step 6 of this tutorial will explain plus a load of other info and things to try
Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot


FWIW even though you are confident about your OC i would remove it for testing purposes until you regain a stable system
