Windows 7: Windows boot error 0xc000000f every ~ 1-in-4 to 6 startups with SSD

Which port on the mobo is your SSD drive plugged into? SATA 1 ?

It was in SATA_1 - I've put it into SATA_0 now - problem not solved (I tried to replicate it for a while)

Rerun the Windows Startup Repair now that you're connected to SATA0

Can I just mention that even in the BIOS when this happens, the SSD is undetectable in the BIOS - doesn't that rule out Windows issues?

Yip, that would be a problem. Download the manual for your mobo and see if you can find any details on how to set the SATA drives correctly - e.g. SATA mode, AHCI, Raid, etc. SSD should be on SATA 0 and selected as the first Hard Drive boot device.

Well the tweaks I did certainly made my system get past all the back and white pre-OS boot stuff a lot faster - but as I can't influence the error, I won't be able to report back what the result of what you suggested will be. If good for a week, then I'll assume it's fixed.

You may have had 2 different problems. If your BIOS wasn't recognizing the hard drive, it could be the connection on your mobo or SATA cable wasn't securely connected or is bad. You can normally use any of the available SATA ports on the board, as long as you have the ability to assign the SATA connection # that is to be used as your first boot device (done in the BIOS setup page).

The other issue I was looking at is your boot configuration and pointing the boot process to where Windows is installed. That's the part the Startup Repair should have fixed automatically.

Well we'll see if any good has happened after the tweaks, otherwise I'll buy a new SATA cable and see what happens from there
