Windows 7: Laptop can't boot, 0xc00000e9 error, System Repair says bad harddisk.

Laptop can't boot, 0xc00000e9 error, System Repair says bad harddisk.

Hello!

I turned my laptop on this morning and all of a sudden my laptop won't start properly. I tried the two menus when you boot, the 'Launch System Repair (recommended)' and the 'Start Windows Normally'. Both menus won't work, as they both just freezes for a few seconds, then goes on to try and load Windows files, which it can't. Then it gives me the 0xc00000e9 screen and there is nothing to do.

I tried to boot in Safe Mode, etc., but it is still the same. I also tried with the System Repair Disk, which couldn't solve the problem either. It did find the problems but it couldn't fix them. I looked at the log file where it at the bottom said this:


Does this mean that my harddisk is completely dead? There is some very important files I need for my studying and I would really like to keep them.

Hi BornholmerDK,

Welcome to SevenForums.

Boot from a Live Linux CD /pen drive and see whether you can recover. You have three workouts here in this forum using Mint Mate, Peppermint and Lucid Puppy.

In all cases you may use Rufus - Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way - to create a bootable Linux pen drive with the downloaded Linux ISOs , boot your lappy with it and try recovery onto an external HDD.

Emergency Kit - save your files from a dead OS by whs - Mint Mate

Peppermint3 - Create Live CD/DVD/USB To Use For Emergency Backup by Golden - Peppermint

Lucid Puppy way to recover files from a non-bootable computer by one jumanji - Lucid Puppy

Take your pick. Personal preferences can vary.
