How to Install Windows 7 From USB Drive without Windows 7 ISO DVD

As for your problem: That 100mb partition you are seeing is the hidden partition windows 7 uses as its boot manager. (As for your error code, 0xc000000f ,this tells us the hidden partition is where the corruption is.)

There is 2 solutions you can attempt:

Attempt a repair from the options on the flash drive.. if that fails when the setup is loading it will ask to press an "F" key for recovery options.. don't remember which function key it is.. load command and do the following:

C: (assuming the C drive is the default windows installation partition)
CD Boot
Bootrec /rebuildbcd

(Let the this run and it should rebuild the BCD and the issue should be resolved)
I really hate to say this, but it didn't work It won't boot... and I have followed ALL INSTRUCTIONS... any other ideas amigos? It won't boot and it loads the black screen with the File: \BOOT\BCD and Status: 0xc000000f errors ...

Thank you, but I think I'll try to go for the Authorized Service...not that your option isn't good, but...I just don't think it's worth losing a few months of warranty, giving the fact that I even paid for them...I'll let you guys know if I managed to fix something with my laptop...thanks!

Well if it is under warranty then I would suggest having it sent out and see what they can come up with. Though I'm sure they'll just replace the hdd and fresh install windows.

Ok, I have found the solution... it is as simple as counting to 10...
The first thing that I (you, if you have the same problem) had to do is press F8 when the laptop reboots and pick from the Advanced Boot Options the option Last Known Good Configuration (just like in the photo in the attachements)... and that did the trick!

(If you find this solution helpfull please click on the scale just on the top-right side of this post... Thanks!)
