I followed step by step. Used the older version even. No juice.

Do you have a DVD drive? If so write it to a CD and boot from the CD. You don't have a lot of options since you can't boot into the OS.

Other than the 0xc00000e9, what error message are you getting with it? It will usually list a problem along with the error message. Do you have the installation DVD or a repair CD you could boot from?

I mentioned that in post #2. I am pretty certain with that error code and that message, you have a bad hard drive. You could use a portable DVD drive. Maybe you have a friend who has one you could borrow, but they are pretty inexpensive. That is what I use. I don't have a DVD in my computer. I rarely use one. They just plug into a USB port.

Is it possible to get the repair disk on a USB?

Yes, it is. Boot Windows 7 System Repair Disc from USB Using Grub4Dos. I believe there are other ways too.

I would suggest if you are going to do that, create a Windows 7 Installation Disk on a USB drive. The installation disk will do anything a repair disk will do plus you will be able to Install Windows. USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

If you haven't done it so far, I would suggest you get your personal files off that computer and on to an external source.

You may have other computer in your house and most certainly you have friends who do.
