Windows 7: Winload.exe error while booting 0xc0000001

Winload.exe error while booting 0xc0000001

Hello,

Normally I wouldn't ask this however it is a bit of a weird error because of how it came about. Right I had Windows 8 installed but my hard drive on my laptop failed and so I had to steal the harddrive from my other laptop with a broken screen and it already had Windows 7 running on it but I thought I'd install Ubuntu while I make a Windows 7 USB and boot into it to re-install.

So now I have Ubuntu and I hate it personally and I'm trying to boot into Windows 7 to install it via the USB and I have followed many tutorials on how to make a bootable USB. Anyway when it boots up it comes to a 'Windows Boot Manager' screen and says:

File: \windows\system32\boot\winload.exe
Status: 0xc0000001
Info: The selected entry could not be loaded because the application is missing or corrupt

Is it because I'm booting from a USB? The reason I'm doing that is because I didn't receive a recovery disk.

Try creating the flash drive again, only this time using Universal USB Installer – Easy as 1 2 3.

You have to create an .iso from your Win 7 install DVD. If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here: Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River.
Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

In the first drop down box, scroll all the way to the bottom and select Windows 7.
In the 2nd box, point to your .iso file.
In the 3rd select your flash drive.
Click Create and off you go. In a little while you'll have a good, bootable Windows 7 install flash drive.

Check your Boot priority (order) in BIOS Setup, make sure the hard drive is first, then use the Fn key at boot time (usually F12) to get to the boot menu where you can choose to boot from the flash drive. See if that makes a difference.

Do you have a DVD burner? If so, use the downloaded .iso file to create a DVD. Boot that and install.

I recommend downloading and installing ImgBurn then use it to create the DVD at the slowest speed available.

Tried that at 4x speed because 1x speed wasn't available and it just said "Expanding Windows Files (0%)..." for about half hour.
