Well as the title says, I got that message when booting. Actually it is a long story before i got that message so i'll try to sum it up. So, what i've done and what happened are as follows:
27 October 2012: I built my PC from a scratch.
three weeks ago: I began suspecting HDD failure because it is not detected in the bios frequently, failed short dst and long generic test in seatools for windows and began to make weird sounds (kind of a scratching or grinding noise, but I can't really describe it) only when booting or extracting .rar files.
two weeks ago : the problem with the bios was gone. But the sound retains.
1.5 - 1 week ago : the PC loads gadgets and some programs (that launch on startup ex. drivers, antivirus) a bit slower. I suspect the HDD is causing this because the other components are fine and my PC could play games in full HD. Windows explorer also crashes sometimes, and minecraft too.
Just YESTERDAY : I've had enough with constant explorer crashing and slow system, so I decided to open my HDD to check for hardware problems (It's a stupid move, i know) but I failed because after i opened the screw and tried to open the cover I can't because the cover is shut tight and prying it open wont work. Then i just put the HDD back together with the PC and booted, then magically an error status 0xc000000f appeared on my screen. I searched forums and run repairs from my installation disk but my OS is not listed. So i went on to the commant prompt and used bootrec, diskpart, rebuild bcd, and other commands.
Earlier TODAY : I found out that partition c: (the place i installed my os) was in RAW format (it used to be NTFS. I got the message (see the title) today, before that i got anothe bcd related error and fiddled with the command prompt. See below for my list of errors.
- I use a 500GB Seagate Pipeline HD.2
-M y OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
- Errors (if i'm not mistaken): 0xc000000f, 0xc000034, 0xc00000098 and the error whe loading the OS.
- The drive where i installed my OS turned RAW.
- my partitions are c: (260-something GB)(it is RAW), e: (97.6GB), f: (103GB)
- Lastly, please don' t tell me that i need to get a new HDD cos i'm just a kid. If that is the only solution, please tell me how to extract all the data from the HDD including the RAW partition.
Thank YOU in advance.
