Windows 7: 0xc00000e9 error message

0xc00000e9 error message

I have laptop in which I receive 0xc00000e9 error message and I can not start Windows. First I suspected that there is some problem in my hard drive. By the way it was not starting in Save Mode or Last Known Good Configuration. So I decided to format hard drive. After formatting it on another pc I connected hard drive back to laptop and tried to install Windows 7. But I still get the same error message. I even connected brand new hard drive and still get this error message. What may be the reason? Any suggestions? Please, help me.

Error message is like that:

Status: 0xc00000e9
Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred.

It appears you have tried nearly everything but taking RAM modules out and running the PC with the bear-minimum.
Fill out your system specs here:

You mean taking out all RAM units and running laptop without RAM?

No, using only one module at a time.
If you will update your system specs it will be helpful .

You could first try a different slot, then if that doesn't do it
then you can test the RAM following this tutorial:


let us know!

I have changed the slot of RAM and entered into BIOS. Inside BIOS there is a bilt-in Memory test which passes without error. To be sure for 100% that RAM works fine I will test it with your software too and let you know the result.

RAM test passed. What else may be the reason of 0xc00000e9 error message?

You obviously didn't follow the tutorial, as it reads the test needs to be left running for 7 consecutive passes
or until errors are found, if were found you would have said so.

Non the less, even brand new drives could be DOA (dead on arrival).
What hard drive is it?
Is it an SSD?

warning   Warning
The following steps should not performed on an SSD!

Testing the HDD:
  1. Perform a Disk Check | Disk Check
  2. Then Post the results following | THIS METHOD
  3. Download SeaTools for Windows if you don't want to use a CD to test the HDD you can use YUMI – Multiboot USB Creator to create a bootable USB (instructions are found at the bottom of both pages).
  4. If SeaTools for Windows is unable to recognize your HDD visit HDDdiag and follow the instructions.
