So, this is my Mothers laptop and she wanted Windows XP, so I went ahead and tried to dual boot it along side Windows 7. I shrinked the volume and did all those steps of one of the topics here, anyway I noticed the laptop kept constantly booting to Windows XP automatically? It's frustrating especially since it refuses to connect to the internet at all.
I right clicked on "My Computer" in the Start Menu and selected "Manage" I tried to make the "C:/" drive the active partition, and I rebooted. I ended up with that error message 0xc000000f. So I reinstalled Windows XP and tried again.
I managed to get VistaBoot or whatever on it and attempted to make it bootable to either OS, however, I ended up with an error message again... (0xc000000f), so I attempted to format the laptop using it's recovery drive (D) in System Recovery...I can't format the laptop....
I can install Windows XP again but I am sick and tired of it, I just want to fix Windows 7 now and make it bootable.
So now I am using a uBuntu "Try me" disc to write this message. Is there anywhere I can fix this via uBuntu? (I just want it to boot into Windows 7, I couldn't care less about Windows XP anymore)
Sorry, this is a pretty lousy introduction but I really have to go soon and I need the laptop fixed very soon!! Thank you.
