Windows 7: 0xc000000e - Partition Table Repair - corrupted F:\windows

06 Mar 2011   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
0xc000000e - Partition Table Repair - corrupted F:\windows

Silly me, I just saw the instructions here on how to post which I somehow missed before:

Is Windows 7 Professional
- x64 (64 bit)
- the original installed OS on the system? yes
- an OEM version
- OEM = NOT pre-installed - I installed myself when I build machine

- age of system (hardware): almost exactly 1 year old
- age of OS installation: almost exactly 1 year old also
- have you re-installed the OS?: no, I have never re-installed the OS

How do I get the dump files from a machine that won't load past the BIOS???

I haven't seen any recent threads on this so here is the situation:

I had a failed Service Pack Install so I ran both the Chkdsk C: /f function and a sfc /scannow System File checker functions as described in this article about Fixing a Failing Windows 7 Service Pack 1 Install.

I then installed and ran the Windows Update Readiness Tool.
Upon a 3rd reboot, I get the following error: 0cx000000e

I used the System Recovery Options from the Windows 7 Install Disk and the Startup Repair has diagnosed:

Test Performed:
Name: Check for updates
Result: Completed successfully. Error code 0x0.
Time Taken = 0 ms

Test Performed:
Name: System disk test
Result: Completed successfully. Error code 0x0.
Time Taken = 0 ms

Test Performed:
Name: Disk failure diagnosis
Result: Completed successfully. Error code 0x0.
Time Taken = 109 ms

Test Performed:
Name: Disk metadata test
Result: Completed successfully. Error code 0x0.
Time Taken = 0 ms

Root Cause Found:
The Partition Table does not have a valid System Partition
Repair Action: Partition Table Repair
Result Completed Successfully. Error code 0x0.
Time Taken = 1747 ms

I opened the Command Prompt from the System Recovery Options and ran all the bootrec.exe tools. When I run the /ScanOs function, I get individual notifications following for each of the following saying the file is corrupt and unreadable:

F:\Windows\Offline Web Pages

After some researching, I found this article from Microsoft Support:

"WARNING: When Chkdsk detects problems with the file system and attempts to repair the damage, data loss can occur. Microsoft does not recommend running Chkdsk with the /f command-line switch unless you have a full backup of your hard disk. "

Fortunately, I have a older full backup of this SSD boot drive. My questions are:
- Is there a way I can repair these c: /f files from the System Recovery Options without having to re-install windows 7?
- Do I have to do a New/Clean Install of Windows 7 just so I can do a restore from my backup?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
