0xc00000e9 error, Unable to boot to windows, help?

Hi there, I am totally unable to go into my os, and am getting stuck, similar to this,

In both scenarios, I get the same error. When I start normally, I get the Starting Windows text, then I get a solid white bar with Windows is loading files... above it. It fills up halfway, then I get Windows Boot Manager error 0xc00000e9: An unexpected I/o Error has occurred.

This computer is a stock Dell Inspiron 530s, with no new hardware devices added or removed in recent memory (other than starting from a USB stick once or twice, but not since I installed Win7 Pro x64 on here).

How should I proceed? Should I plug in a USB stick I have Xubuntu 9.04 on and backup all his files before I do anything?

Thanks,

So, can you help me at all Sevenforums?

I have a lenovo flex 15 with win 7 professional on a 64x system, Thx

If you are getting the 'Unexpected I/O error has Occurred' message, if you have a Mechanical Hard Drive please run Seatools for DOS SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use. Run both the short and the long test.

Click the link above for Seatools. The DOS version you boot from the CD or USB you created. You don't boot into Windows.

Try tapping the Blue Thinkvantage button when you see the Lenovo boot screen. Select the USB and press enter. It should boot into the USB. If that does not work, go into BIOS and set the boot options for the USB key first boot device.

Your dump file look like it could be the hard drive. I would back up your files to an external drive now. Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

After you finish that you can go into BIOS and set the USB as first boot device. After you are finished go back and set the DVD or hard drive as your first boot device.
