Windows 7: Error 0xc0000225 on boot

Source?

I do most Startup Repairs with flash stick, and many we have helped here have written WinRE to stick using Win2Flash.

Self tested & MS kb934540.

Windows Vista or Windows 7 no longer starts, and the Startup Repair tool does not fix the problem

Also using CLEAN ALL will delete OP Windows 7.

I've never had any problem using WinRE from flash stick. But thanks for the heads-up, Ray. Now I'll never trust it fully!

Thanks. The Diskpart command to delete Ubuntu is Delete Partition Override, or use free Partition Wizard bootable CD to do a partition-specific wipe of Ubuntu, or delete the partition using the booted Win7 installer>Custom>Drive Options..

The reason the step is included is that Ubuntu on the HD can make Win7 irreparable.

Boot up using the Startup disk CD or Windows 7 DVD. (not the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disk) If you have a Netbook, you will need a CD/DVD drive.
Make sure no USB drives are plugged.

If you have not made your Startup Repair CD
System Repair Disc - Create
Do you have a mate with Windows 7 & CD/DVD RW Drive, how could burn one off.

1) Boot CD or DVD & open a command prompt.

2) Use the Rebuild BCD in this tutorial:

You may find the Fujitsu Recovery Partition has been made unusable by Linux.
All tested.

No need for 3rd party tools, Partitions can deleted in Disk Management, no need to do Startup Repair.

I downloaded a repair ISO from the internet. Windows 7 x64. It didn't load up.. It went to the GRUB.

Is there anything I can do?

Make sure you are booting the CD correctly: How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD - Boot to CD

Or try booting CD using one-time BIOS Boot Menu key given on first boot screen.

If you get "Press any key to boot from CD/DVD" but it still doesn't boot then verify the ISO integrity and burn to CD using ImgBurn at 4x speed.

It should. I put the disk in and tried booting it. It didn't work. So I went into the boot menu thing and put USB CDROM as first and it didn't boot. I went into the bios menu and the disk didn't show up.
