Windows 7: Hard drive issues 0xc000000e&f

Win 7 x64 Ultimate
Hard drive issues 0xc000000e&f

I'm Running Win7x64.

when I boot I get the Windows boot manager and either a 0xc000000e or for error.

When I boot with UBCD4Win I can't find the drive in disk management. Even though I can see the drive in the BIOS.

If I remove the drive and put it in an external USB case and boot into USB4Win I can see the drive and testing says it's healthy. I can access all of the file system without an issue.

I've checked the MBR with Test disk and it said it's fine.

What should I do next?

I know this is a basic step but often missed, Try booting from your WIN7 dvd and doing a couple of repairs happened to my system once and i had to do 3 consecutive system repairs to get Boot Record repaired/recognized.

You might want to check the bios and see How the drive is listed as in AHCI or ATA. I have had this issue as well with several HP Laptops that somehow (as in customer has no idea) they were either changed from AHCI to ATA or visa versa.
