Windows 7: Windows 7 Pro x64 Install : Error 0xc0000001

10 Nov 2011   #1

Windows 7 x64, MacOS X 10.7
Windows 7 Pro x64 Install : Error 0xc0000001


I've looked each post about this error and still can't find a way to install Windows 7.

First my configuration :
- Asus Maximus Gene 3 with latest BIOS
- Core i5 760
- 4 * 4 Go DDR 3
- GTX 570
- 120 Go SSD.
(new configuration assembly by hand)

Second the error :
Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the case. To fix the problem:

Insert your Windows 7 installation disk and restart you computer.
Choose your language and click “next”.
Click” repair” your computer.

If you don’t have the disk contacts your administrator or your pc vendor.

File \Windows\sysytem32\boot\winload.exe

Status; 0XC0000001

Info:The selected entry couldn’t be loaded because the application is missing or corrupted.

I've tried to install it from DVD (retail), and 2 different USB Key (with official usb key maker, from Windows 7 x64 via vmware on mac) : Got the same error
Tried to use only 4 Go of Ram : Same Error.
MemCheck via Ubuntu Live USB : No Error on RAM (all four passed)
Tried to format and copy install files on SSD : Still failed.
Tried another hard drive (250 Go SATA) : still failed.
Booting from Backtrack/Ubuntu live usb.

I'm out of solutions.

Can you help me ?


Update 1 : XP Proo x64 is installing fine.

Are you booting the DVD to try install? The error means the HD is being booted, not the DVD drive. How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD

Then follow these steps: Clean Install Windows 7
