Windows 7: Boot error, status 0xc000000f

Boot error, status 0xc000000f

Guys,


Today my OS got freezed at the loading screen and it doesn't boot anymore. After that I restarted my PC and chose the safe mode but it got stuck on the drivers selection part.

Now I got this:


"Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing, or corrupt"

file: \windows\system32\config\system

status 0xc000000f


I did a clear CMOS but it didn't work. I don't have a Windows 7 recover CD yet, only a 1GB pen-drive with Ubuntu installed and that's why I can ask here for help.

I don't think the problem is the hardware because I can access my files from Ubuntu.

The question is: Can I repair the boot system with Linux?

Att

NO, Linux is quite different from Windows. This page has a link to a system repair disc that you need:

In addition everything that can be done is here for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start
including the installation media for your licensed version to use for repairs or if necessary reinstall if the steps don't work.

It certainly would solve my issue, but the problem is that I don't have a blank CD/DVD at the moment!

Can you boot to Advanced Boot Options and select "repair your computer"? Then select "command prompt" and determine which drive letter is the OS partition.
Code:
dir  c:\users
dir  d:\users
dir  e:\users
Is it c, d or e that has your user account listed. In this example I assume it's E (if not ... replace E with actual drive letter)
Code:
chkdsk/f  e:
Anything repaired? Run it again... no errors anymore?

For some strange reason, the choice "Repair Your Computer" doesn't show up. The others are there, but when I choose one of them, the failure screen appears.
