Windows 7: 0xc000000f error /clone/Raw/Can't boot Up

0xc000000f error /clone/Raw/Can't boot Up

I need some assistance and I hope somebody can assist me.

I cloned two hard drives via clonezilla because one of those hard drives has bad sectors. I have Windows 7 64 bit. The original hard drives still work even though one of them has the bad sectors.

The cloned hard drives will not boot. I get the message error

File: \Boot\BCD

Status: 0xc000000f

Info: An error occurred while trying to read the boot configuration data.

I attempted some solutions that I saw on a few other threads; but, I have had no success.

The system recovery options shows.

Operating System: Windows7 Partition size: 0 Location: (D:) Local Disk

The recovery disc did not resolve the boot error.

I have checked the bios for boot start up and it's correct.

I followed instructions via another website and noticed a partition is listed a Raw. I tried to convert the Raw partition to NTFS. I followed instructions which were via command prompt - Diskpart that showed D as a raw file. I attempted Chkdsk /r /f d: But I got the message ... the type of file NTFS. Unable to determine volume version and state. Chkdsk aborted. Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50.

Having read many threads it seems that I need to convert the Raw partition to NTFS.

The old drives are a WD 1 TB and a 500G Samsung Sata II

The two new drives are WD HDD 1 TB WD Black 7200RPM contain the following:

A terabyte drive partioned :C drive and :E drive and a 450MB recovery partition

The second terabyte drive has the D drive

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Sorry for post being so long. I was trying to be as detailed as possible. Thanks in advance.

For raw drive you need specific partition recovery software there is a lot free bootable ones. Cloning a disk with bad sectors is a bad idea as depending on the type of clone it will write bad sectors to the new drive
