Windows 7: New SSD can't boot w7 error 0xc0000001

New SSD can't boot w7 error 0xc0000001

Hello everyone,

After my HP pavilion g6 crashed the other day, I bought a new and upgraded hard disk, Samsung 830 SSD.

Had not burned the HP recovery discs, so I downloaded and ISO with Windows 7 to be able to boot the computer.

The HP won't boot:

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

The ISO dvd is fine, I checked it on another computer.

I ave been searching a dozen of fora but so far with no luck.

Could somebody point me in the right direction? Any help is welcome and much appreciated.

Greetings from DK,
AL

Did you get the ISO from here. Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River My Digital Life This is the only place I would recommend. Burn it at 4X and make sure you have the same version as what was on there before.

Thanks for your reply

I did in fact burn it at a low speed (as was recommanded in another thread) and yes it is the ISO from Digital River.

Is that the error you get when trying to boot from the burnt disc?

or an error simply trying to load Windows.

Why did you buy another harddisk in the first place? Sure it was faulty?

Please test if you don't have faulty memory. For example with Memtest86 - Download Page

burn that ISO and boot from it and test memory

After installing the ned SSD harddisk I tested the drive and the memory in the option the bios provides.

Both test showed that there is nothing wrong there.

Could it be that an HP pavilion notebook has difficulties with a Samsung harddisk?

No, as long as they are the same dimensions, the make does not matter.

If you can , try to boot the ISO image using a virtual machine. Does this provide the same error? If so then I would put money on the ISO being the issue rather than the hardware of your machine

Also just to be clear, you have checked that you are using the correct architecture? (32-bit and 64-bit)

Many thanks,
Josh
